Review: While yet to really hit the dizzy heights, Cassimm has delivered a string of rock-solid EPs over the last couple of years. "Never Mind" is the London-based producer's first outing on Sense Traxx, and it's really rather good. Blessed with bold builds, big drops and an addictively retro-futurist feel, Cassimm's original version wraps sharp, rave-inspired riffs and impassioned vocal samples around a ludicrously bass-heavy groove. The Mad Villains remix tones down the rumbling sub-bass a little (though not that much) while retaining the original's bustling drums, adding some woozy chords for a hybrid deep house/UK garage feel. Greco (NYC) has no qualms about going all-out on his remix, which is a bustling, bass-heavy stomper designed for major peak-time rotations.
Review: Everyone's favourite house hooligan Riva Starr presents more main room tech house for the peak time, on volume two of his new In House series. Beginning with the fiercely rolling attitude of "S.T.O.P." by London's Cassimm followed by "Isolationx12" by Spain's' Odd People - a euphoric and atmospheric prog-house epic on the harder tip. For more classic old-school house flavour, you can't go wrong with Nico Cabeza's fittingly titled '1990" while Lexlay's "Speakers" hammers the message home in style - in what can only described as classic Snatch! material.
