Review: The guys at 1Forty have had an excellent showing across 2018, with a multitude of explosive festival appearances, well received releases and new artists making them one of the real labels to watch in the new year. They sign out of December with this wicked new four track selection, featuring grimey heaters from the likes of Ali Mck, J Huttz, Arridim and Afterhours on production, alongside cracking vocal appearances from Lyrical Strally & KDot to add some additional spice. It's always pleasing to see underground labels pursuing different genre avenues, and 1Forty show no signs of slowing down whatsoever.
Review: You will have heard this track about over the summer, with its garage hype, grime grit and dubstep wobble, it's unmissable and unmistakably fun. This EP come with 5, that's right 5 remixes. The Vital Techniques take has lots of bassline influence, bouncing bass and high pitched whistles. Palize keeps the hyped up bassline vibe strong, but the track is stripped back. The Burt Cope remix feels slower and more powerful than the original and the other remixes, the switch after the break down is too much, get ready to watch the floor explode. The Fiyahman version is pure heat, after building anticipation the drop follows the 4/4, bassline vibe of its predecessors. Agro's version really stands out from the rest and is our favourite of the release, it's dark, brooding and bordering on drum and bass, the swaths and descending subs would kill any bass dancefloor.
