Review: Conrad Subs has been teasing his next album over the last few weeks and finally it's here, courtesy of Nuusic, and boy what an LP it has turned out to be. Conrad Subs is very confident when it comes to constructing break beats and so it should come as no suprise that they make up a large part of Tides, to excellent effect. 'On a 90s Tip' is an especially potent track, with that classic rave piano sound driving an inch-perfect set of drums and a rolling reece bass. 'Obese' is yet more spectacular stepping sonics, whilst 'Little Vibey Thing' blends R&B vocal infuences with juddering drums and punchy, unforgetablly catchy bass stabs. It's a raw, gritty album and not one to be missed.
Review: It's been a while since Ed Warrener blessed us with newness but all this is expected to change over the coming months with a new slew of Shogun sounds. And it starts right here with "Brink". Featuring the confident vocal prowess of Lady Soul, Ed.it gets his head down and drives out a restrained-but-barbed groove that sizzles and grunts in all the right places. Welcome back Ed.it.
