Having paid homage to cult Mexican gangster film Mi Vida Loca last year, 6Blocc takes time to celebrate another classic movie Boyz In The Hood with another concept album. Taking samples from the film and weaving them into gully floor heaters, 6Blocc shows us his darkest skills with a palette of sounds. "Church Booty" refuses to quit with its relentless back/forth sub ripples, "Crenshaw & Century" is a Tom & Jerry level jungle joint full of twisted amen edits and Ice Cube freshness, "In The Hood" slinks and tickles with "Pulp Fiction" style minimalism while "Mark" flips the mean and moody halftime bird with cosmic grit. These are just a handful of highlights.
When we see the name Adam Hyjek pop up on our charts, our minds aren't restricted to one genre or style of dance music. Instead, we associate the producer with everything that's even remotely house-related and, in fact, he has produced plenty of wonderful tunes across the deep, progressive, tech, and even funky strains of the most beloved form of club music. Here, "Why Do I Still" heads into clear garage waters, guided by the seductive voice of Sanna Hartfield, in what is an ultra sexy tune for this new Ultra Bass tune. Remix A comes from Wayne H, who injects a heavier house flow into the mix, while remix B is from Style Of Tigers, and what we have is a gentle, stripped-back Chicago bomb. There's a sultry radio edit, too.
