Tommy Kid touches down on Sounds Of Sumo for his second EP on the bass-oriented label and delivers seven tracks and remixes of pure, unadulterated nu-garage house fury! The first, "Jetlag", contains the funkiest chords known to man; "Bouncing Drops" is a gorgeous sci-fi roller of a tune and "I Know" goes all twisted with metallic cowbells and glorious, hissing percussion. "Easy Street (VIP)" is edgier and more urban, adding raved-out chords to a puritan dubstep groove, making it the sure winner of the lot. As for the remixes, CDBL transforms "Jetlag" into a sinister, Dubfire-reminiscent tech-roller, whilst Mark Starr shapes "I Know" into a broken, old-school house affair, and Kingsin adds a hip-hop twist to "Bouncing Drops". Impressive vibes from the Sumo crew!
Way back in April, Young Adults put out House Slippers, a mix album whose sunkissed disco-house vibes went on to soundtrack our glorious summer. Well the summer is sadly no longer with us, but the music is and to prove it, they've released a series of remixes of some of the tracks featured on the mix. Cosmic Kids turn "Mr Everything" into party poppin' electro-house, SONNS goes all electro-pop on "Just Wear It", "Into The Murk" gets even more acidified by OOFT! and Cottam goes mental with an 808 all over "Fake Bitches".
