Review: Mackenzie, Fixx and Rat Records have been developing a firm relationship of late. Hot on the heels of the storming "Wurk It" and "Freak Dat" releases comes this bass-charmed booty-basher. Referencing both breakbeat and trap, the smouldering 808 kicks and bass have been dynamically built into a thundering breakbeat riddim while the pitched down vocals add the perfect touch of ghetto paranoia. For a headier trap rendition jump on D:RC's remix; leaning sleazily on a cool halfstep, switches are thrown on the break as the synth riff takes over. Heavy!
Review: Deekline's Rat brand looks across the pond for some raw ghetto-minded booty breaks business. With Kidd Money making sure we understand exactly how he'd like his female dog to perform her chores, it's down to Keith and Fixx - both strong fixtures on the US breaks scene - to lay down the crisp, euphoric hooks. It's a heady brew and guess what? It wurks.
Review: It's been a massive 2018 for Punks, who have continuously been putting out banger after banger. Nothing sums up the level at which they have been performing better than the second edition of their BBQ Beats compilation, this time featuring high profile appearances from the likes of Stanton Warriors, Nixon, Donkong, Plump DJ's and many more. For us the instant standouts have to be Wes Smith with his super groovy 'Rave On' composition along with Outlord's dubwise breakbeat fusion in 'Down The House'. A special shout has to go to Beatslappaz for their stomping contribution in 'The Drop', which is also an instant piece of rave dynamite.
