Rinse FM's Tom Shorterz is a producer whose productions fuse the best elements of all his disparate influences - these influences being deep tech house, electro and vintage techno. Of the two tracks here, the title track is probably the best, with Paranoid Resistance's thunderous digi 4x4 remix of "The Grid" narrowly missing out to the deep-jack-meets-Dopplereffekt vibes of "Mainline".
They always say that if you are disadvantaged in some way, just accentuate it and make it a badge of honour. So Birmingham's Tom Short has become Tom Shorterz and a glittering career can only but follow suit. Here he has remixed his own tune "Wot U Do", turning in a linear but bassy, seven-minute garage stroller. Onwards and upwards!
Birmingham bass bully Shorterz returns to his spiritual home with two more exceptional cuts. Between them they rep his full style and scope... "Oper8" is a hard-nosed 4x4 chugger with a bouncing Q&A style melody created between the two lead bass textures. "Boing" is a much deeper, classically trained piece. Sitting somewhere around the 808 State / Guy Called Gerald synth tones and the bouncing bass Justin Martin or Shadow Child, you can hear this working in all styles from UKG to techno. Timeless m8.
