Review: New State have the honour and privilege of unveiling this extremely hard hitting original collection from the living legends: Stanton Warriors, with their new album project 'Dance Floor'. The album from start to finish gives an excellent showcase of what is going in bass music worldwide, with a selection of originals from their in house label: Punks and more. From listening through, our highlights have to include the subtle, techy flavours of Foundry's 'About Your Love' remix, featuring Lily Mckenzie, along with the punchy collaboration with Taiki Nulight entitled 'Beat Up' and of course Left/Right's spooky rethink of the title track 'Rise'.
Review: It's been a massive 2018 for Punks, who have continuously been putting out banger after banger. Nothing sums up the level at which they have been performing better than the second edition of their BBQ Beats compilation, this time featuring high profile appearances from the likes of Stanton Warriors, Nixon, Donkong, Plump DJ's and many more. For us the instant standouts have to be Wes Smith with his super groovy 'Rave On' composition along with Outlord's dubwise breakbeat fusion in 'Down The House'. A special shout has to go to Beatslappaz for their stomping contribution in 'The Drop', which is also an instant piece of rave dynamite.
