DJ Muggs producer and self-styled woofer cooker, LA's 6Blocc enjoys an illustrious heritage, and a very exciting future. Fusing the best elements of jungle, ragga, bass music and dubstep, "Serious" flexes around a very well known horn sample and some guttural lyrics flows from Junior Demus. Four-version heavy, it ranges from the full-bodied, breakbeat-heavy original to the thugged-out Miami bass style 808 twist. "Give Love" takes the skank factor further to the fore as Demus gets sexy over a groove that teases with so much digidub pleasure it's likely to stick in your brain. Finally we hit "Jungle Stabbin." All rusty amens and mangled horns, it lives up to its title in every possible way. Lighter!
The Chewy label returns just in time for the hottest part of summer with an EP containing four equally scorching edits from the mysterious A Digital Needle outfit. Whether its the brass and string-heavy "I Who Have", the deft piano ripples of "Music", the swung bass and saxophone riff of "Keep" or the psyched-out flange funk of "Roll Her", there's something here guaranteed to set any dancefloor on fire.
