Review: The next instalment of perky, upbeat, feel-good D&B from Liquid Brilliants arrives, with Bass Division and Alex DB teaming up for the first track of the Brazilian Brilliants EP - "The Scape", a shimmying slice of goodness, full of chirruping SFX, rallying vocal cries and punchy jazz-infused pressure. "Concrete Jungle" sees Mayforms harking back to yesteryear with skittering percussive breaks, woozy atmospherics and a lonely guitar string throughout. "Good Troughts Good Things" ups the ante with tough drum work and lilting melodies, before lush atmospheric roller "Nothing You Can Do" concludes the EP.
Review: Following on from his Brazilian Brilliants EP Mayforms steps up once more on the Snow In Brazil EP, introducing some collaborators along the way. He kicks off with the solo effort "Everyday", a wistful track with swooping strings and forlorn trumpets while Bass Division joins him on "It Embraces" a lively tune with uplifting vibes. Standout "Our Love" brings a male vocal and orchestral flourishes before he rounds things off by teaming up with Jand on "Come Back Go" a R&B influenced number which will put a smile on even the sternest face.
Review: Deeper Vision does exactly what their name would suggest: they purvey high-quality D&B beats which are certain to make you think deeply, and give you a different vision on life. Furney kicks things off with 'Get Up & Go' and its serene territory, with wistful vocals from Lady Emz making up the high end of the range and punchy low-frequency pulses occupying the low. 'Paradox of Choice' rests less on the sampling and more on the top-quality synths, underpinned by another wholesome bassline. 'Ambivalence' is the funkiest of the bunch due to its moving back end and luscious flow, and it represents well the vibe and mission of this superb VA.
