Review: Crown Jules is known for an uncompromising approach to all tings bass. Here it presents a selection of tough cuts from the label's roster. "Ram Jam" begins with some ominous hip-hop-on-a-tropical-vibe attitude with plenty of carnival tempos and stabby fake horns to boot. Next, and "Muky" by Sean D is a menacing bouncer that builds intensity with an incessant buzz and shrill high-end melodies. J Beatz appears with Limit for the dark alley grind of "No Signal" lastly Beat Boss 4 champion, Sware, rocks up to deliver "The Flow", a slice of elasticated electro with a hint of ghetto sass.
Review: It appears that Skillzy's now infamous PAR label is at it again, gathering and arranging an absolutely monstrous compilation here, featuring heavyweight riddims from some of the coldest names currently working across the grime and bass sphere. We see exciting returns for label favourites such as Juzlo, Dubzta, Daze Prism, Killjoy and more, who have all previously featured heavily on PAR. This compilation offers something for everyone, from the sharpened, evil grime chops of Garna's 'Peroni', to the UKG prowess and skippy rhythmic bliss of 'Kobe JT's most recent PAR appearance with 'Selecta'.
