Review: The Artikal team have unearthed a worldy here as Leo Cap arrives in sizzling fashion, bringing us a multi-genre fusion of dancefloor delights. We open up with 'I Feel Good', a fragrant title track, linking together the intense rhythms of UKG with a hard hitting slap of grizzly bass notation, topped with choppy vocal expression, before 'Surround Me' lets loose a scintillating display of electrifying synthesiser sweeps. From here 'So Damn Beat' ups the heat even further as a stripped back drum set plays host to one of the angriest basslines we've heard in years, with the popping percussive melodies and skippy rhythmic textures of 'Free Your Mind' then giving us a cosy landing zone, rounding off this very impressive body of work in serious style.
Review: Having recently featured on the official JunoDownload podcast, we could not wait to dive into this spicy new collection from Leo Cap, who sits as one of Wheel & Deals most exciting new roster additions. We open up the EP with 'Pow', a monstrous introduction, flipping between big room style synth action and metallic drum crashes, setting the pace with a very creative arrangement style. From here, 'Kinda Voodoo' waltzes forward with a backdrop of clicking percussive flicks and spacey pads, glued together by some seriously grizzly bass design. From here, 'Always Got Dat Murder' launches with a sub-busting display of gnarly LFO action, before rounding off with the liqudized synthetic manouvres of 'Sleepers', giving us a full set of very unique, very potent dubstep originals, perfect for dances across the country!
Review: Navy Cut have been on a tear over the last 18 months, never disappointing their dizzying array of dubstep releases, always pushing the boundaries of sonic design. This next drop from Leo Cap again sees them push the boat out, with 'Stunning' being exactly what it says on the tin, combining super-syncopated rhythms with metallic percussive intrusions and pulsating bass beeps for a wicked introduction. From here, the wonkiness intensifies as 'Black Magic' deploys a barrage of lofi drum sounds and system-rumbling subs to really up the pace of the project as a whole. Finally, the sweeping synthetic genius of 'Goliath' gives us a fuzzy, heads down roller to close off the project with, again showcasing the versatility of Leo Cap's production arsenal and giving us another slap to close out with. Exceptional stuff!
Review: As always with the Deep Dark & Dangerous faithful, we are in for a treat as Leo Cap unveils a spicy five track display of original dubstep delight. First up, 'Lemon & Cognac' unleashes a grizzly combination of gnarly synth swipes and eerie vocal samples to kick us off in style, before 'Los Angeles' takes the sound back to the essence with a jumpy, percussive-lead roller, packed with tasty distortion and shimmering shakers. Next, the wicked vocal lines of Julia Marks join the party for a hypnotic dive into sweeping synthesizer textures on 'Our Best Trip', followed by a lo-fi coated cave dweller in 'Flavour', a serious title track. Finally 'Stick Inside' allows the weirdness to run wild, giving us a gut-busting finale that we can really enjoy. Excellent work!
