Review: A known producer for the Cuttin' It Fine label and Breakbeat Paradise, Crash Party sets a select sequence of straight-laced, funky and snare heavy drum lines to this EP. Sweet rhodes, keys, space pongs and bouncing disco turns to fire in "It's On Like That" with "Funk It Up" cutting up all matter of vocal snippets and hip hop samples to a James Brown groove. Heavier basslines and vocal progressions in Swim Incs remix, with Natty Speaks preaching good times in "What You Come To Do".
Review: It's time to take it back to the old school here as the Cuttin' It Fine team employ the top notch talents of Crash Party across four new bangers, kicking off with the incredibly groovy twists and turns of the title track 'Funk 2 Ur Roots'. We then up the pace as we roll into the hard hitting breaks work of 'Kick It Like', which utilizes an almost acidic style bass instrument, before 'Are You Ready Now?' combines cheeky brass stabs with buzzy bass pressure to cause a ruckus in the rave, Finally, Crash Party leap aboard the bassline bus for the high energy switch ups 'Get Up & Dance'.
Review: The breakbeat flavours are well and truly alive here as the Crash Party touches down on the popular Scour imprint for a four track shell out. We begin the journey on the twisted bass synths and uplifting horn scatters of the title track 'Residential Area', before relaxing the high energy tone a tad on the more laid back styles of 'Funk Groove'. To follow, 'Throw Your Hands', which is a fidgety scratch party, laced with hardcore vocal samples and bouncy piano leads, before finishing up the selection on the more 4x4 inspired drum work and patois vocal finesse of 'Lock It Off'.
Review: Welcome to party paradise: BPR unite some of their best mates from breakbeat's new generation for this six-track D&B flavoured knee-trembler. Highlights include the insane riffology and samplecraft on "Crazy", the saw-toothed grizzles on "Respekt", the skitty drums and twisted risers on the bright and bashy "Tell Them" and the pure rave euphoria of "Treat You Right". Paradise found.
Review: Buckle up! Bristol duo Crash Party barge the shindig once again with this powerful piece of toxic bass dancehall halftime. Heaving with filth and catchier than a sailor's shanty everything about "Nitty Gritty" is designed to super-charge your dance and thrust them to another level. Remix-wise Second Hand Audio flip the euphoria mode with some sizzling rising chords, Dave RMX gets his 110 on with glitched out undertones, Leygo & Toy Beats add a raw dancehall swing while DJ BiNGe throws down an absolutely savage drumstep rendition. Finally the Crashers conclude with a sweet skank via their firing jungle VIP. All killer versions; this gets to the nitty gritty of any situation.
