Review: There are good runs and there are incredible runs, and we truly believe that Foundation Audio's consistency and creativity in the releases they have been putting together puts them on the path of the latter. This shimmering new rolling project from Chief Kaya is a testament to that, kicking off with the nostalgic LFO movements and crunchy drum designs of 'Duppy', before stepping everything up a gear on the title track 'Classic Edition'. Next, the dubwise chord structures and chilled out composition of 'Creator' settles in front of us, before we finish up the EP with a look at 'Indigo Dub', another dubwise shuffler, packed with mesmerising horn additions and glittering arpeggiators.
Review: For us, Version Collective deserve real praise for the 2018 they have had, supplying the realms of 140 with some absolutely storming releases. That trend continues here as Chief Kaya brings together some dubstep heat, kicking off with the amphibious bass tones of 'Underground'. Following this, we look at a steppers special in 'Patois', before revolving into the rapid fire LFO driven energies of 'Emperor Dub'. Next, SBK gets involved over the more melodic and relaxed structures of 'Traditional', followed up by another swampy collaboration with Drew's Theory entitled 'Jetlag'.
Review: Foundation Audio has been keeping the levels of consistency super high in recent months, with this latest helping carry on that theme as both Mikrodot and Chief Kaya link up across four tracks of classic dubstep flavour. We begin with the distant, Asian string plucks and nostalgic LFO chugs of 'Heavy Flow' from Mikrodot, before Chief Kaya deploys a weighty, call and respond-heavy stomper in 'Pull Up'. Back to Mikrodot next as the metallic bass slides and glistening synth melodies of 'Babylon Get Weak' send us back down memory lane, with Chief Kaya's bubbly, dubwise VIP of 'Scale Of Anubis' providing a perfect end to proceedings.
