Parts of life... Some are great (eating cake, cuddling, having adventures), some are necessary (washing dishes, speaking to your neighbour) and some are fantastic (this release). Both "Double Bass" and "One For Me" continue Liquid Brilliants' love for the MC with rapid-fire flows - the former boasts a "Brown Paper Bag" style organic minimal funk while the latter is a much darker, jungle-edged affair. "Life Goes On" is a much dreamier joint garnished with a graceful vocal while "Simply Mad" closes the show with booming juicy subs and a razor two-step riddim. Make "Parts Of Life" part of your life today...
Kicking off some seriously devastating riddims all tinged with Neurofunk, Brazil's own Sound Energy is riding against the flux. Distinctly different from the Brazilian DnB tradition of warm, rolling vibes, in "Element", SE favours big waves of electricity dashing over big, bouncing bass and tribal percussion. Analogue synth sounds pulse hypnotically around mysterious stepper "No Stress", while "Another Love" brings some Brazilian sunkissed flavours to the mix. Acoustic guitar smooths out a warm textured roller with inflections of brass in just the right places but vocals warped just enough to keep that unique edge. A real grower.
