Review: London booty-bass pirate Deekline and Detroit ghetto-tek boss DJ Assault... Now there's a unique meeting of like-minds. The result is a concentrated brew of everything that's great about both players' music; butt-shifting beats, sinewy acid licks, your-mamma-sized low end and a breakdown that will melt the iciest of the floors. Clap your hands? Standing ovation more like.
Review: Two legends of the UK bass and breaks scene, Deekline and Ed Solo, team up with a legend of Miami booty bass on this new collaboration on Rat. DJ Assualt delivers the freaky sex rhymes on "Gimme", letting his flow sit over a chunky, speaker-rattling classic breaks beat from the Brits. Swedish electro outfit Audio Stalkers turn in a heavy tech makeover, while Brighton turntablist don JFB gets his scratch on over a jittery dubsteppin' backing on the remix front. A great meeting of minds and styles all round.
Review: Submerge release yet another full-blown leviathan of a compilation for all you Detroit addicts out there! This has literally got it all, ranging from classic rhythms like Underground Resistance's "Timeline" or Disco D's infamous electro monster "SOS", and even various re-ups from DJ Assault's vaults, such as "Dick Ride" and the hip-hop filtered "Same Ho"; to lesser known beasts by the likes of DJ Zap, DJ Godfather and many others! There are over thirty pieces here, so take your time and enjoy. Whatup doe!
