Night Bass head honcho Petey Clicks is Los Angeles's chief exponent of filthy, UK-style bass music. Here he shows us why, with two left-right jabs of tough love dance music. "Home" is where the heaviness is, featuring a relentless distorted bass pulse and rolling tropical drums. "Here 2 Kill" meanwhile is gloriously updated Good Life-style ravey house, complete with diva wails and snare rolls and classic cymbal splashes. Back to the future has never sounded so good.
Sick plate pirate Hybrid is down big style with the Serial Killaz crew and with the kind of boss tunes he creates, the SK's label is his natural home. This latest missive from the frontline features two tracks that pack serious dancefloor punch indeed. "Get Hype" is fusion of dubby grooves, amen breaks and mega chopped vocals. "Rewind Selection" riffs off vintage 2-step, with added Robin S-style bass organ, ravey sunrise-on-ecstasy synth pads and sped up RnB vocal snips. Proper dope beats.
