Three new tunes from South African bass 'n' breaks wizards Enough Weapons, with the impossibly hard-hitting "Got Digital" leading off with some thick drums and snakey bass sounds getting rinsed in some lethal sequences. Japan's SOL8 work it into a glitchy, tech-rave beast complete with a wicked tempo shift, while another newie, "Dropping Morgan A Line" goes off on a banging electro tip complete with chewy side chained synths. With the minimal yet pounding "Stick" also included, this most definitely an incendiary EP.
Three hell-raising Cornish DJs who clearly put their love of partying into their tunes, the Freerange DJs are back with a bang with Back To The Old Jack.
Their original mix has plenty of turbo fuel in it's tank, combining a crunchy acid-line and some powerful and punchy drums. A peak-time Breaks tune, it also has scratches and cuts by the barrel full, with all manner of old-skool samples dropped in to keep the crowds on their toes.
Fellow Cornwall-dweller Rektchordz turns in a strong remix, with plenty of Techy attitude and some brilliantly structured off-kilter rhythms that really make it stand out. Tokyo's Eshericks also turns in a blinder, working in a tempo-dip that'll make it an invaluable battle weapon for DJ's looking to switch tempos and styles in a classy way. Anyone familiar with duo Quadrat Beat will know they don't take any prisoners, and their mix takes the original and turns the rinse-factor all the way up to 10!
With Dom Almond's pounding mix rounding off the set, these will blatantly be lodged in people's sets for months - get involved as soon as possible.
Some sweaty hardcore bass-breaks action from Bass=Win head honcho Terry Hooligan, who delivers a swift kick to the gut on "One Step Ahead" - a mix of crunchy, floor-filling electro and scattergun, shuddering dubstep-esque leads. Temper D and Balkansky set off on a suitably mentalist route with their heavy half-step remake, while Temper D goes solo on "Last Days" on for some fidgety, wobble-electro goodness.
