Review: Round 6 of the Dub Organiser series finally surfaces from the Cooly G vaults for digital consumption! Lead track "Dis Tribal Boy" is an obvious highlight, presenting a more luxurious flex between house and UK Funky than the Scratcha DVA remix that preceded it last year thanks to the interchange between the pressurised trombone and her sultry vox. Just as crucial is the jagged thrust of "Last Night" as schizoid percussive rhythms thrillingly duke it out with darkly harmonised vocals to a backdrop of brooding square bass. Elsewhere "Let U Deep In" also indulges in the trombone sound, laying deep horn parps and rattling UK centric syncopation across a viscous backdrop of cinematic washes.

Review: The promise of Cooly G's releases for Hyperdub et al turns into maddening anticipation as the first taste of her forthcoming album sneaks out months ahead of the game! First up it's "Landscapes", co-produced with Simbad, and utterly devastating in its use of simple elements for maximum effect. A broken beat ticks steadily away under glossy, undulating streams of pads while Cooly herself enchants with her Neneh Cherry style vocal delivery. "It's Serious" sees Cooly linking up with Karizma for a more chunky, beat-driven offering that will slay floors in the same way that Altered Natives' "Rass Out" did some years back.
