Hardhouse Banton has been a force to reckon with in the world of UK Funky since 2008, and even counts Kieran Hebden among his fans, with a storming remix of Four Tet's "Sing" last year. The superbly named Banton Weight EP on Greenmoney Recordings sees the producer continue to hone his style, with three cuts of heavy UKF. "Prep For War" creates a spectral rave siren from an elongated vocal sample, whilst its warehouse techno scale is brought out by reverb laden snares and demonic undertones, whilst the hypnotic stabs of the similarly huge "Miss You" are balanced with an emotive string buildup. Finally "In Da House" offers a much deeper cut, its energy pulsating slowly across its nine minute length with rising synths and snare rolls.
