Badman and bad-ass bass producer Gage returns to the Crazylegs stable with six dastardly slices of machine-gun funk, and he's getting faster and nastier every time we hear form him. "Turbulence" is more of a bass-weighted noise tune than a dance banger - and we love it - while "Talon's Reach" contains more of a beat flex in its spine and some killer hardcore rave stabs; "Gruellin" sounds like the inside of an engine that's about to explode, and "Hyphema" is the sort of grime they listen to on Saturn - the cream of the crop in here and a massive tip! "Rochester Way" fires its percussion stabs away amid detuned keys and, lastly, "Oxleas At Night" pushes all boundaries and delivers a ticking time-bomb of a gutter track for the heads. Get to know.
Gage burst onto the scene earlier this year with a pair of killer grime-meets-techno tools on Crazylegs, and here he returns with ballroom vocalist Kevin JZ Prodigy for what is undoubtedly one of the label's best tracks to date. Gage's production is some of his tightest yet, offering the kind of track that will no doubt be getting more than a few rewinds, but it's Prodigy's vocal gymnastics that steal the show in what must be one of the year's most impressive performances. Essential!
