Review: Emergent bass wizards Juakali and Secret Angel Gel are up on the smokin' Top Billin with a new scorcher, the aptly coined "Rule The Night". Bursting through with a devious slew of Jamaican-minded vocals, it's a classic steppers bass tune to raise the levels on the dancehall and cause a likkle bit a fury. There's a remix from Nobel, who strips things down and works the percussion and kicks in deeper to form more of a 4/4 groove, and a dub, washed-out version from ErrorrE - perhaps the tune of the EP, and one that is certainly aimed at the corner dwellers..
Whole Sick & Tomb Crew - "I Go Sick" - (4:52) 132 BPM
Top Billin & Wolfhaus - "Heart Of The Traitor" - (4:27) 140 BPM
Mega Banton & Kush Arora - "Shake Sitten" (Kush Arora's china white instrumental) - (9:04) 122 BPM
Review: Cripes! Top Billin' doesn't seem to even stop for Christmas! This latest is a compilation of their best releases from 2012, and considering their pretty hefty back catalogue, they had their work cut out for them. Boasting a whopping 25 tracks, the album's highlights include the Tropical campery of "Phil So Real", the glorious "Always Got My Back", the Future bass exoticism of "I Told Ya", the sparse and dreamy drum machine and soft pad heaven of "Find Your Love", the sci-fi ghetto beats of "Work It", the badass old skool house of "House Girl" and "Motion Elements (Snuff Crew remix)" and the blissed out Italo-disco ish "Shake Sitten (Kush Arora remix)".
