The latest in T&A's long-running series of exclusive electro-bass nuggets sees crew member AC Slater deliver two fine examples of fired-up, late-night delights. "Full Power" makes great use of a pitched down vocal on the drop into a stew of slowly rising synths, nicely underscored with some acid-influenced beats. "Hip-Hop Drop" hits the spot even harder with some frenetic tropical drums anchoring a k-hole inducing set of pitched-down pads and sparkling techno chords.
We're not that sure that the underground ever really went away, but Trouble N Bass regular AC Slater insists it did and now he's back to make the point clear. It's a stonking EP that flings us about in a rollercoaster of tough bassness: "Out Here" is a peak time, 4x4 hip-house banger that's positively pulsating with wobble, "Donkey Shake" flirts with breaky dubstep and ghetto house, while "Gunplay" is accelerated dubby bounce. Finally "LMLY" is a thrilling hybrid of '90s speed garage and contemporary urban bass. Epic!
