Review: FooR celebrate four years in the business. They are are a UK collective of producers, musicians, DJs, and MCs at the forefront of the current UK Garage revival. The four-piece have also become UK garage's fastest rising stars on the live circuit, and are being championed by some of the scene's biggest names 'Friends Of FooR' was their first commercially available mixtape, following 2017's Pure Garage mix album. Hailing from Southampton and fronted by Gavin Foord, Aki, MC Jukie and Tyrone - they have all been friends for 15 years - literally since they were kids. Once they hit their teens they started making music together and then throwing parties, first locally, and then across the south coast.
Review: If FooR were to put together a studio album, where else could it be other than their legendary home imprint of YosH. As an album 'Friends Of FooR' is a collection of high profile collaborations from the bass house giants, including both production features and high energy vocal additions. Our favourites include the swordplay duo with Endor, the skippy house textures of 'Bad Man' alongside Jay Robinson and Dekar artist' and of course the triple threat rinse out of 'Black Bandana' which features Killa P, Irah and Long Range.
Review: Chameleon Audio had a big year in 2016, instilling their name on our charts as regular go-getters ad quality scouts of new talents in the bass game. This is one of those leviathan compilations where even the most critical of DJs will find something to jump up about, as there is so much damn gear on this badboy! Tunes by the likes of Jacotanu, KXVU, and Policy deliver some much-needed grime lashings, while others like Strap C and Imtek's "Bubble, or even "Shakeup" by Particle, break out the London half-step riddims for the heads. From dub to house, the influences in these things are vast and unmatched. Dig through it.
Review: Sentry have been a serious killer streak of late and this latest collaboration if most certainly a product of that. We see the legendary Youngsta link up with the rapid fire flows of Killa P and Long Range for a certified smash, taking the title 'Progress'. The link up is a match made in heaven, as Killa P and Long Range let loose a destructive display of rapid fire flows and rhythmic switch ups over the lethal reesey textures of Youngsta's flawless production. This one also comes complete with Youngsta's fantastic instrumental version, which despite the brilliance of the lead vocal, most certainly stands up as an instrumental project.
