Self-proclaimed 'all round diamond geezer', Junior UK has teamed with long time cohort, Martin Carr, for a new jam, "Break Me Down" on the forward thinking imprint Ultra Bass. The tune at one turn is classic 2-step, then vocal anthem with electro-tinged bass, and an uber slick soulful house payoff. Remix-wise Elrose goes retro piano-led funky house, Rare Candy are all about the percolating warehouse bass and euphoric breakdowns, full Spektrum explodes in skippy, technicolour 8 bit-step and 2 Rotten Scoundrels wrap things up nicely with a sparse, killer jam.
Ultra Bass recently released an epic label compilation, The Ultra Underground Vol 2, however rather than sit back and bask in the glory, they're already knocking out even more jams. The latest of which is "Take Me Away" - a collaboration between producer Junior UK and London singer/songwriter Martin Carr (not he of Boo Radleys fame, mind), and the original mix is big, summery Euro-dance with its eyes on the top ten. Also, our picks for remixes include Thorn's slinky late-night-stepper, Rare Candy's 90s-style house cut and Underheadz's garage-wobble hybrid.
