Review: Burt Cope and Wang Records? What an absolutely fabulous combination we have on our hands here as we welcome two of the brightest outfits in UKG. The single itself takes the title 'Desire' and forms itself into a blissful arrangement of colourful melodies, beautiful vocal additions and well processed drum chops. With the track constantly expanding across different rhythms and harmonies, this is a direction we are absolutely loving from Burt Cope and when the nightlife of the UK reopens, we can be sure to hear this brightening up evenings around the country.
Review: New to the game, Burt Cope is turning all the right heads and after listening to this EP you'll understand why 'Call My Name' is a glorious mix of elements of UKG from the heavily house influenced past, to the more modern sound of grime and bassline. 'Jank' has a northern Bassline heart but is decorated with sounds and effects which feel at home in big room house, the vocal is completely tongue in cheek and full of the fun flavour of old school garage. 'Fiya' is based around a simple 4/4 and mixes the best elements of musical garage with the more synthetic sound of the darker side of the scene. As the name suggests 'Rude Boi' draws more elements from grime, with violins and sirens adding texture but influences are just as varied as the rest of this fantastic EP
Review: As a label, Crucast have gone from strength to strength, rapidly establishing themselves as one of the premiere platforms for bass music in the UK. This complication marks that out perfectly with an astonishing selection of over 30 original creations, featuring high profile appearances from the likes of Jaguar Skills, Brent Kilner, Pavv, TC4, Inkline, Deadbeat UK and a tonne more. For us the EP highlights the strength in the current UK bass scene, with favourites being Bushbaby & Hadean's long-awaited collaboration release 'Clean Up', the monstrous swinging synths of Tengu's 'Weapon' and of course the wonky wonderings of SaidWho's 'Voices', a truly original compositional idea, focussing on rawcus bass sounds and scattered drum selections.
