Review: It's always a pleasure to hear new, exciting music unveiled over at the Garage Shared camp, who this time pull something different out of the bag, exploring garage from around the world. This scrumptious selection sees them collect garage bangers from 9 different countries of origin, with the likes of Bowser, DJ Blaize, Kiefer Ian, and more all supplying heavyweight 2-step rollers. Indialman's groovy chord experiments in 'Arrival' are a perfect example of this project's natural versatility, alongside the epic string sampling and reverby organs of 'Ododdnt' and DJ Djegor's clean cut singalong in 'All I Need'. Hitch93 takes a highlight spot with his super groovy 'Hologram' original, alongside Keiju's glitchy drives in 'Blue Boy' and of course DubbalifE's quirky floor filler entitled 'Can't Help'. Wicked work!
Review: As we know, the standards are pretty high with the team over at Boss Mode, which is why we were pleased to see that Bowser hasn't disappointed with his brand new experimental two tracker, kicking off with 'Small Steps'. The title track is an interesting one, blending super electronic sounds and synthesizer designs with punchy drum creations and an unpredictable rhythmic base to keep us guessing what's going to happen next. On the flip-side, we take in 'Memories', a more melodic experiment, focussing in on a catchy vocal line and moogy bass notes below, adding a real sense of depth to release despite it only being two tracks.
