Review: Ever tried to kiss a star? NOT recommended. It'll take you millions of light years to get to the one you really fancy, and by the time you get there, they'll already be dead. Sad, eh? Well cheer yourself with this selection of deep, dreamy D&B compositions. Preparing for his album, the label boss has teamed up with various peers for four widescreen audio adventures. "Everything Is Nothing" is an Autonomic halfstep number with all manner of lacy winks and twinkles. "Drowned In Stars" develops the groove with an insatiable clicky riddim and sexy breathy vocal. "Catch A Falling Star" shoots us into hyperspace with serious levels of trancey charm while the "Drowned In Stars VIP" manages to combine classic dub ambience with tripped out jungle amens. Amen to that!
Review: Fokuz prove they're no one trick pony with these considerably dark and menacing couple of cuts from Keosz and Trilo. First up is the brooding "Pride" with its razor sharp snares slicing through the darkness, the melancholy instrumentals adding a somber tone throughout and the booming sub bass striking a chord with the heart and mind. This one's a killer - beware! Accompanying this is the equally as ominous "Ahiram" with its clicking beats, gnarly bass and quirky, oriental SFX and moody atmospherics. One of the best things we've seen from Fokuz in some time!
