To be a successful Mafioso in a world of street tuff beats, you gotta be hard. Good job then, that Breaksmafia are hard as nails. Here we have a quick one -two attack, with "Put Em Up" getting in first with stadium-sized ghetto beats and epic rave breakdowns. "Let Me In" is even more lively: with bouncing subs, laser-beam effects and Prodigy-esque vocals.
Bristol-born, London based bass man Dephex has building solid rep for himself through producing 'sinister, inventive beats in the 120-140bpm' tempo. Here he conjures up four cuts for the Impulse EP. "Bad" opens with percolating, forward facing bass and skippy beats. Elsewhere ""Bust" incorporates intricate stop/start beats and monstrous bass growls and "full Fat Butter" ventures into 2-step territory with extra lashings of rubbery bounce. Lastly "Impulse" features soft synth chords sharing the stage with relentless wobble bass and speedy 4 x 4 drums. Muchs power here.
