Did you come to party? More's the point, did you come to dance? These are the questions MC Alaska asked in 2009 on the Freestylers bouncy dubby original. Whether it's the price of stamps or poor reception, we don't know, but Erb n Dub has only just replied with an emphatic YES. That's a heaving, sweaty, dubstep flavoured yes by the way. All spiky and full of electro pace, Erb's delay in response is made up for with sheer audio power. Tomb Crew and Pimpsoul have also answered Alaska's call to action with equally positive responses. The former go for an Afro-style drum swing and loony bass riff while the latter jacks things down into nu-funk territory. Exceedingly checkworthy.
Breakbeat scientists the Freestylers team up with Wizard for this excellent release on their own self-titled imprint. First up is "Mount Zion" which gets things off to a rambunctious start with a series of synth squelches, bass kicks and smacking snares, quickly interrupted by a chanting vocal and dubstep blares, burps and bassline badness. Cheeky, chirpy and fun, this is a great one to add to the collection. Next is "Sunblast" with its progressive old skool rave chords, uplifting synths and grinding bass, it encapsulates the sound of now very nicely.
