There is no stopping Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley when they are performing under their infamous Stanton Warriors moniker. The UK breakbeat champions have been a solid presence on our charts since day 1, and they simply have NOT ceased to deliver new and innovative forms of dance music. "Keep On Doing" comes through on their own Punks imprint, and it's a mighty old rave-up of a track that's driven by charging r&b vocals and big-room, bog beats. A sure hit with the duo's closest fan-base.
A veteran of labels such as Adapted and Breakbeat Paradise, here this Aussie 'cosmic collector of robots and rainbows" has served up a sparkling four track EP for the guys and gals at Scour Records...and it's a winner! "Monkey Bars" trundles along evoking memories of vintage Go-Go, hip-hop and swing, "Back N Forth (feat Imagine This)" shows of his turntablists skills in fine style, "Dustin' Diamond" on the other hand, shows off his disco and funk influences and "Infamous" is a tough party breaks jam that will fill the floor at any self respecting house party.
Sunsquabi teams up with New Orleans' Russ Liquid who is the future-vintage/ groove-blasting maestro that has stirred the souls and minds of the electronic music world. Renowned for his ingenious compositional approach, this cosmic virtuoso imprints a prophetic musical experience on his audiences. He detonates explosive beatscapes, seamlessly adding flourishes of instrumental color and emotion; all while drawing from an endlessly diverse sonic palette. SunSquabi on the other hand are a three-piece, live electronic experience. Hailing from Colorado, they have been picking up steam after a breakout year in 2016. This fine release comes courtesy of Detroit label All Good.
Ever since Adapted Records won Best International Glitch Hop Label at the UK Glitch Hop Awards in 2012, this Aussie imprint has been ruling the roost. Here they present a mini album's worth of collaborations between respected producers Dedrecordz and Low Radar101 and boy, do the sparks fly. There are six jams to sink your teeth into, with highlights including full-on meaty crunch of the stomping title track. Elsewhere we get slow and groovy glam rock stomp of "Cross Fire" and the hands-in-air-stadium-rock-meets-party-breaks of "Wings".
