Review: Badman flavours are the order of the day as Kentaro shares more smashers from his Contrast album. The Trickaz take on the challenge of "Step In". Fronted by the Foreign Beggars, the original is a hard track to beat. But if anyone can do it, it's these exciting new faces. Snarling with a savage electro flavour, this is next gen dubstep with added hype. "North South East West" finishes the set in two different guises. Tha New Team gets lively with a half-step screamer while Taiki and Nulight subvert proceedings with a sexy deep garage twist. Both are exemplary lessons in the dark art of remixology.
Review: The first single to come from his album "Contrast", the original is an interesting dubstep piece laced with Krush's skillish organic motifs. The remixes are different case altogether. Qemists have pressed the halfstep button with a keen, sharp-toothed stepper that barges and batters with well-produced might. Deadelus has kept the drama but added a wearier, foggier paranoia while Anchorsong adds an almost classical, orchestral punch to proceedings. It's Reso, however, who steals the crown for the biggest reversion with his grunting breakbeat remix that sounds like it's straight from the Hardcore Beats back catalogue. Beefy.
