Review: Eatbrain are a Hungarian neurofunk institution of instantly recognisable proportions, a household name in the world of big basslines and one of the main labels holding up the banner for the growing central and eastern European obsession with the subgenre. Even for Eatbrain, this release is exceptionally strong and the diversity within shows the broad church that neurofunk has become. 'Sweetface is the more archetypal of the bunch, a pummelling roller that moves and sways with engineered precision. 'Ability' holds up the sky with Coppa on vocals over an incredibly unique percussive structure that works undeniably well. What a wicked release.
Review: Current Value's relationship with the Souped Up crew has become one of the best subgenre cross overs in recent times, with his glitchy Neurofunk sound transitioning perfectly over into Serum's drawn-out, jump-up infused tones. 'Remorse' features Coppa on vocals and it's a naughty, rolling number with a tight sub bass and a general atmosphere of aggressive hedonism and dancefloor orientated funk. Good stuff.
Review: As Rocstar head honcho, Cut La Roc has championed the spectrum of breakbeat styles with open-eared enthusiasm and nary a care for fly-by-night trends. Practicing his preach on every release; you never know what you're going to get from old Roccy, but you're guaranteed it's going to rock. "Roll The Dice" is no exception as it tips a nod to Get Physical's early days and classic UK house with stabs that you may well recognise from "Fly Life". Spine-tingler AND party banger, Cutty's nailed it once again.
Review: An impromptu single from breaks meister CLR, joined by UK rhymer Coppa for the subtle yet very cool "Riot In The Club". You might expect a tune with "Riot" in the title to be a cavalcade of noise, but the duo keep things nicely on the down-low, with rounded, subby basslines and a simple breaks drumset forming the backbone for Coppa to flesh out with his rhymes. And what rhymes they are - if you know of another tune that name checks Elmer Fudd, Dawson's Creek and Nigella Lawson in the same verse, we'd love to hear it!
