Review: Irish Moss recordings: promoting positive vibes in reggae and bass music culture. They don't fail to deliver on their mission statement here, so check this out. Ireland's DJ Obese and Jay Sharp team up again for a full length that is serious fire! "Mr Willams Dirty Dubsterz Meets Special Request" gives us a well rolled lowdown that's hard to argue with. Feel the bass on "Back To Boom City" where Blackout JA tells the truth; blunted style. There's some female MCs on here too such as on "Blue Fishes" (with Soom T's smooth delivery) and there's drum and bass on "I Love" and we'll give you just one guess what they're referring to? We know what you're thinking and don't worry: there's some killer bashment vibes on tracks like "Domino". Jah!
Review: Ulterior Motive's Guidance label is new, but it feels like it's been around forever, with a slew of sick releases already under its belt. Lovely is the next artist to take up the mantle and he's done so with Run The Square, a five-tracker of blackish, minimal proportions. The title tune is ominously bouncy, with stabs and cuts that lend it a genuinely eerie sense of atmosphere and progression. 'J'undastan' is equally as banging, its monochromatic bassline gurgles and grates with satisfaction and the EPs overall sense of eeriness is present at even higher levels. Top EP from a top label.
