Review: There really aren't many things better than a classic, old school bassline wobbler, which is why we were thrilled to see this new rave-ready selection from Kegone land on the legendary Chip Butty Records this week. We kick off with 'Let You Get To Me', a vibrant singalong number, with a ticket festival season slapped right across the front of it with its bright LFO designs and uplifting melodic structures. To add some extra sauce to proceedings, Thorpey gets involved right off the bat with a high energy recreation of this one, before we dive into the super punchy 4x4 drum pattern ups of 'Classical Music', complete with more fabulous bass work. Finally, we round off with the more minimal breakdowns of 'Subzero Stylee', putting the finishing touches on a project we cannot wait to hear in the dance!
Review: As one of the most established, original sounding labels in the bass scene, we are very excited to dip into the latest Chip Butty compilation project as they unveil the third edition of 'Chip Shop'. The release features nine scorching originals, showcasing both the new and the old as we see established named such as Dr Cryptic and Dr Oscillator team up with the likes of newer faces like Harry Tremlett and Liam Bline for one hell of a selection. For us, the clear highlights of this one have to include the super crunchy drum shuffles and grizzly bass textures of DJ Airmax's 'Number One Fan', along with the smooth yet hard hitting LFO's of 'Run Wi D Riddim' from KegOne.
Review: Over the years, there are genuinely very few labels that have been able to amass as impressive a catalogue as Project Allout, a label that continue to unleash bass and grime music at the highest level as me move into 2020. This latest compilation release takes the title 'Keep It PAR, Volume 2', and is a terrific showcase of the different styles on offer within the imprint, including music from PAR allstars such as Dubzta, Moony, Dutty Tingz, Daze Prism, JT, Killjoy, Palize and more. For us, there are two clear highlights, with the super groovy twists of 'Baby Boy' from Venz being the first, followed by the smooth garage flavours of 'I Dont Know' from Lushen.
