Review: Chris Royal continues his fantastically energetic start to 2018 with a straight bass banger. This one, entitled 'Thump' does everything it says on the tin, bringing crispy percussive melodies to the forefront of the piece coupled nicely with thick rolling sub basses and skippy drum patterns. This is a perfect example of where the creative corners of bass music are expanding to, incorporating new instruments and atmospheric breakdowns which completely enhance the overall experience. Oh yeah and who doesn't love a euphoric build up?
Review: New State have the honour and privilege of unveiling this extremely hard hitting original collection from the living legends: Stanton Warriors, with their new album project 'Dance Floor'. The album from start to finish gives an excellent showcase of what is going in bass music worldwide, with a selection of originals from their in house label: Punks and more. From listening through, our highlights have to include the subtle, techy flavours of Foundry's 'About Your Love' remix, featuring Lily Mckenzie, along with the punchy collaboration with Taiki Nulight entitled 'Beat Up' and of course Left/Right's spooky rethink of the title track 'Rise'.
