Review: It's that time we look forward to so much again as Project Allout return again with another fantastic package, this time dipping and delving into the familiar realms of speed garage and bassline with three tracks of pure vibes from Froidy. The title track '2 High' is a super energetic piece of bass music, drawing from niche-inspired sound design and incredibly skippy drum patterns, followed by the smooth vocal tones and twisted bass synths of 'Things You Need'. We finish the project up with a look at Froidy's 'Tomorrow' remix, another niche driven spectacle and one we feel would rip the dance to shreds for certain.
Review: It's time to really dial it back to the old school as the legendary Project Allout here return to give us a dose of nostalgic bliss, as Froidy arrives on the scene with a back of 4x4 niche bangers. We kick this one off with a look at the lively title track 'Wub Ting', an original that combines carnival chords with wild wailing wobbles to bring life to any party. The high energy vibes continue into the catchy vocal slices of 'See Things Clear', along with the high, whining synth patterns of 'In My Lyf'. Finally, we finish our delvings into this project with a look at 'High Grade', a straight scatty screamer, combining rapid fire LFO machine gun fire with classic bassline drum work to round this one off in good spirits.
Review: When we look back over both the roster and discography that we have seen the team at PAR assemble over the years, it is very difficult to not be incredibly impressed, with back catalogue boasting arguably one of the strongest selections in UK bass music. We here see them set out on another goliath conquest as they present their ninth birthday release 'PAR IS 9'. This project features a host of exciting guests, from heavyweight veterans such as Garna, DeadbeatUK and Moony, to more new school hard hitters such as S3 Dubs, Daze Prism and more. Highlights for us include Dubzta's grimey sheller 'Side Effect' and the madness of Sekt 87's skippy belter in 'Surge & Rush'.
Review: It appears that Skillzy's now infamous PAR label is at it again, gathering and arranging an absolutely monstrous compilation here, featuring heavyweight riddims from some of the coldest names currently working across the grime and bass sphere. We see exciting returns for label favourites such as Juzlo, Dubzta, Daze Prism, Killjoy and more, who have all previously featured heavily on PAR. This compilation offers something for everyone, from the sharpened, evil grime chops of Garna's 'Peroni', to the UKG prowess and skippy rhythmic bliss of 'Kobe JT's most recent PAR appearance with 'Selecta'.
