Review: Originally released in 2018, Dope Ammo's Influence album is the gully gift that keeps on giving. And right here it reaches the peak with the full remix set. Delivered throughout the year, this is the full collection and it takes Ammo's broad sound to the furthest possible places. Ranging from Kleu's gritty distorted take on "Old Times" to the Audiomission's piano-tickled purring steppy twist on "Take Me Back" by way of some of Ammo's own refixes like the sick tempo flexing on the Indian-flavoured "Repent" and turbo-growls of "Risky Business", these remixes don't just reflect the range of the original album but boost it even further.
Kleu & Section - "King Of The Jungle" - (4:35) 174 BPM
Meladee - "Weed & Walgreens" - (4:24) 175 BPM
Conrad Subs - "Fat Mouth" - (5:09) 175 BPM
Coy - "Sleepless" - (6:03) 174 BPM
Itmek - "Legacy" - (5:17) 174 BPM
Foks - "Ghost In The Wire" - (5:08) 174 BPM
L Kind - "Physical" - (4:29) 59 BPM
Courtice - "Last Tune" - (3:49) 176 BPM
Review: Everyone likes a good compilation, right? What's better than having as big a range of artists as possible in one condensed place? It's essentially an album with the ease of listening of a single, so we're all for it. Weapons of Choice have come out with the first edition of The Wild Bunch and it's packed full of bangers, one of those albums which doesn't try to be cool or sophisticated by chucking in a few fillers for the sake of diversity - it's just hard stuff here, with a couple of exceptions llike Viewer's liquid number 'Way to Express'. It works great, with Meladee's 'Weed & Walgreens' the highlight, its driving, bubbling basses intermingling with a fresh sense of movement.
