Review: Cabs is into his futuristic drum & bass, and so should you. You know why? Because it kicks ass, and it goes way beyond what anyone else in the game is doing these days. "Propeller", if it can even be termed d&b, is an acid-laden breakbeat monster that cuts straight to the core, and delivers a mean punch in its groove. "Attack Jet" is more of a garage / broken beat mutant with a stunning set of drums and some rather abrasive low-ends.
Review: It's a new year, and it's time for some new imprints. That's the way we operate. Jelly Bean Farm is among the labels to launch in 2017 but, while others would think of pacing themselves with a debut EP, these guys have gone and dropped a whole compilation of new, unforgiving bass science from all corners of the extended genre. There are twelve killer cuts to choose from here, all from emergent talents, and we've got our eyes set on a number of them. Hypho's "Majikk" is a glorious neo-grime workout that stretches the genre to the very limits, "Pistol Signal" from Opus is a bubbling, potent new strain of hydro-phonic dubstep, PAN:INC's "Freight" is the sort of techno that any bass-boy dreams at night, and Sensei's "Reed" manages to blur the most daring elements of jungle and minimal techno together as if they were made to be one and one. Check it all out, though, this is a true goldmine of all things bass-oriented. Watch out for more Jelly Bean Farm gear.
