Review: It's time to look into the future of dub music on this project as JStar teams up with Blackout JA for a very original creation indeed. This single, which goes by the name of 'All I Have' is a very flashy look into the realms of modern reggae, packed full of marching subby energy weaved beneath subtle chord movements lines and stripped back. On the vocals, Blackout JA seriously impresses with a thoroughly hard hitting performance, pushing his vocals right to the limit with fantastic results. On remix duty, Joe Revell steps forward with a breakbeat rethink, designed to turn the rave to a zoo in a matter of minutes
Review: Killaz by name, killer by nature; Vital Elements and Tobie Scopes' continue to set the agenda as DJs, artists and as label owners. This third annual mix-up is certainly no exception as they plough through 59 tracks - many of which are brand new exclusives - to paint a picture of exactly where drum & bass is at right now. A thick smelly melting pot, everything is thrown into the mix: Upgrade's spine-trembling harmonics on "The Voice", ruded-out bassline badness from Voltage ("My DJ"), various jump-up hybrid creepers from Russian newcomer Ozma, brand new dark wobble lava from Serial Killaz themselves ("Rudebwoyz") the list goes on and on. This is a huge package and it comes with a superb mix too. Treat yourselves or defeat yourselves.
