The Riddim Fruit imprint has been known to successfully merge the remnants of dubstep together with more classic and established dance styles. Their latest signing, Skeptix, certainly doesn't disappoint and provides yet another sublime little EP for the label, featuring their usual hybrid flex. "Nanotech" literally sounds like a dubstep track that's been slowed down a fused with a 4/4 beat, while organic really cranks up the cogs and churns out a beauty of a track - grime, techno, house and bassline all combine. Check "Organic" and "Peng Navis" featuring Dephicit for some more dopeness from Skeptix, our new badman!
Basement Freaks off-shoot Smokey Bandits undergo their third remix EP, proving the dusty dry western planes of cowboy land are more than fertile. Badboe takes the original slinkiness of "Crackerjack" and injects a smidgeon more attitude in the beat department. Antow completely refreshes the Balkan blend of "Return Of The Gypsy Sound" with slap bass, jazz keys and sludgy slo-mo riddim. The muted trumpet-led "Smoke From The Attic" gets a complete D&B overhaul by the Dirty Dubsters while Savages Y Suefo give the rolling, horn-heavy "Rooster" added focus by way of prominent keys and precision skank. Smoking.
