Endgame has released some pretty killer music on some pretty killer labels thus far, but this new EP for London's legendary Hyperdub is a step up. That is not to say that the music he released before was any less good than these three bangers, but this is Hyperdub-approved, as we're sure you'll understand. "Felony Riddim" sets the scene for an EP that is trapped in its own singular web of bass, a raw and adventurous style that is hard to describe due to its multi-faceted nature and aggregation of sounds. If you're into juke, grime, bassline and dubstep, then this will tick all the boxes because it merely uses those genres as a blueprint for something much darker and more cerebral.
Roska's Kicks & Snares label branches out more and more every time we hear a new release form the label, but this new EP by the young Harry Judda is a stroke of masterclass. "War Bonnet" is a magnetic tech-house banger, the sort of tune you see people lining up to ask the DJ what it is and where it's from; there's nothing complicated to it, it's just a deeply effective slice of four-to-the-floor. The Roska remix deviates away from house but the tune itself is a pounding killer of a bass tune, boasting one of the best baselines we've heard from the man. What an EP - highly recommended!
