Review: One listen to Dev79's Boom Boom Down EP and you'll understand why the Philly artist gave it that name. The title track is a quick shifting, 4/4 bass riddim that puts extra emphasis on the down-beat, while there's also signs of electro house, rave and footwork throughout. "Thunk About It" is a little more reserved, mixing hip hop rhythms with industrial techno-strength beats. David Lux provides a disgruntled and cartoonish remake to "Boom Boom Down" while Tanner Caldwell uses vocals as the main element in his remix. Max Klaw then recasts "Thunk About It" into something that's more like a deep version of dubstep than bass for what might be this EP's standout production.
Review: Now, this latest project from Dev79 goes by the name of 'Can't Fit In A Box', and we really feel that despite it being exactly what is says on the tin, Black Marble Collective have swapped boxes with Pandora as carnage in unleashed. This one kicks of with 'You & I Is Us', which features additional vocal work from MC Elixir, layering his potent vocals over a jukey, breaks hybrid, destined to damage dances. This is then followed strongly by the energetic vocal stabs of '215 Alive' and the hardcore nostalgia contained within the arrangement of 'Emerald Tree Boa'. finally, 'Where Kings Are Bred' strips everything back to cool bass sounds and breakbeats, rounding every up with a dash of finesse.
