Review: It's been a solid year for the team at Sneaker Social Club so far, with their stock set to continue rising with the release of this vibrant new four track display from Dog Patrol. We begin this dive with 'Non PGR', a euphoria-driven dreamwalk through distant delays and shimmering synthetics, with the Nasty King Kurl remix providing an even more spacey overhaul. From here, we flow into 'Sassafras', another bubbling crunch off, combining abstractly arranged breaks-style drums, topped with angry moogy sub stabs, with the snare heavy percussive chops of 'Creepin' then providing the outro soundtrack, forming a post-grime funk out as a wicked final closer..
Review: Tongue in cheek humourist / future beats and bass producer DogPatrol gets his debut on Sneaker Social Club with a garage, jungle and drum and bass indebted EP. Pulling it off with some mad timewarping effects and exploding synths of colour in "Small Apple Flex", get your minimal drums and horror thematic samples in "Sepia Story". For the wub wub bottom end look to "Temperature Is Rising" with a straight up, deep and loopy bassline groove coming outta "Shit Hits The Fan". Heads down deep party vibes. Tip!
Review: It's funny, the Sneaker Social Club always seem to be able to find a way to deliver something fresh, exciting and new in their releases, with this brand new box from Dogpatrol being no exception to that rule. We kick off with the laid back garage flavours and subtle sub expanses of 'Clownery', before moving swiftly into the unpredictable shuffles and wonky synthesizer tones of 'Don't Follow Us'. Following this, the EP takes a funky turn, as the lively percussive shuffles and rhythmic expanses of 'The Return Of The Gorgons' ride into view, before the authentic drumlines and cowbell goodness of 'Serena' put the cherry on the cake. Excellent work!
