Straight out of Paris, Tommy Kid makes his debut for Sound of Sumo with this very large EP of murky bass treats. Title tune "East Street" recalls Boddika's spacey dub textures and crisp beats, while the more heavy-hitting "Foot Control" doses you up with sub-punishing bass wrapped around a chilly tropical-tech beat. "Alarm Riddim" is the real party starter though, with an upfront and jacking beat weaved into schizophrenic melodies and cloudy pads. With an extensive set of class remixes also on offer, our favourites so far are Misterweeks' hazy house rejig of "East Street" and Arcade's brilliantly twitchy UKF rerub of "Pump Up The Bass", but others from Kingsin, Squarehead Pasteman and more are all well worth investigating.
