Fresh from his rampant jungle and breakneck breakbeat excursions, LA vibe infuser 6Blocc takes respite in his dungeon for a series of deeper dub jams. Ranging from the super-minimal, slimy-walled sludge of "Dark Side" to the ricochet-rhythm and MC-peppered dynamics of "Illusion" via the steppier militancy and spoken word weirdness of "Wake Up Call" and the pure titanium rhythm of "Break & Eliminate", it's 6Blocc at his deepest and darkest. And yet more evidence of his versatility.
London G Anton returns to Plastician's Terrorhythm imprint with four synth-snapping jams that poke, provoke and prod the broad underbelly of futuristic bass music. No matter how dark or light, though, every track boasts smooth, well-polished veneer; the carnival of bleeps that is "Swaggy" (think Doshy or the current output on Shadow's Liquid Amber), the smooth talking chips-down emo soundtrack of "Blue Bubbles", the moody piano-stroking blues and gnarly bass development of "Murder" and the loopy, siren-zapped slo-mo footwork flavour of "Ferris Bueller". No days off for Anton for the foreseeable.
