Review: Savagery abounds on Bass=Win as Fog steps up with a quad of unashamed shock-outs. The middle finger waggling "Disrespect" kicks with treacle-trap 808s beats while screaming with a dubstep mid-range bass. "Granades" is more of the same heady nastiness but with more a scream in the riff as it rises with insanity. "Vybes" is much more stark and sleeker with more minimalism and funk than aggression. "Why I'm In The Hood" finishes the set with a swaggering synth-horn hook that's got more menace than a 20 man gang scrap.
Review: Great news everyone! Trading Standards will definitely not be calling on Booty Breaks any time soon - their releases never cease to live up to their rump-shaking name. Bad news everyone! Trading Standards may well give Fog a call... crystal clear sonics with perfect 20/20 funk focus: There's nothing foggy about this Dublin breaker in the slightest. Or stingy; he's generously given us three well sprung bouncers, all of which salute to the foundations made by the likes of Deekline and the Stanton Warriors. With well sliced samples and some incredibly well rounded bass tones throughout, each cut will cause major booty shaking action.
Review: Autoerply returns with yet another trailblazer, here we introduce Athens based DJ & producer Fog. His crisp, tight productions have been finding their way into the boxes of Dubfire, Richie Hawtin, Motorcitysoul & Markus Fix to name a few. Remixed by Australia's #1 ambassador for Techno - JUG.
Review: Rita Maia is currently a busy woman, presenting radio (including a weekly Resonance FM show also called Sine Of The Times), DJing everywhere (aside from holding down a residency at the Notting Hill Arts Club) and now releasing albums too! This 11-song collection isn't a mix album per se, although the tracks do cleverly flow together. The overall vibe is gentle, almost brittle, micro-house-meets broken beat: perfect for hazy post-club mornings. Highlights include the teardrop beats of Dfranklin's "Whole", the melancholic rain-soaked 2-step of VVV's "Lost & Found" and the tropical comedown of BD1982's "The Wave Chamber".
