Review: Established during UKG/deep house's latest halcyon era in 2011, Four40 have navigated the bass, house and garage landscape with understated charm, forward-thinking fusions and occasions splashes of gully for five years, amassing well over 70 releases in the process. To celebrate they're put together this immense 54 track collection that represents the label's many sounds and successes. From Regality's deep Chicago inspired chugger "Celebrate" to Morcee's subtle speed garage swag "It's You", Hybrid Theory's atonal bass grunts and happy slap snares on "Mind Games" and Tom Shorterz subverted soul on "Wot U Do", Four40 cover all bass bases and provide an opportunity to fill any holes in your collection. Here's to another five years.
Review: As we hurtle towards the closure of 2018, we are able to look back in serious admiration of the top quality releases that Four40 has blessed us with. This 52 track arrangement is designed to showcase just how powerful their release roster is, boasting top notch appearances from the likes of Skelecta, Tengu, Nu Era, PVC, Foor, Kas$tle El-B and many many more high ranking faces. It's a testament to how strong their current discography remains, keeping their brand at the true forefront of bass music for the foreseeable future. What a compilation, what a label, what a combo!
