Review: Here we have a couple of firsts - this debut release for new label Highly Swung sees Cole Train's DJ Impact joining forces with 'the legendary' MC Marvel for a fresh collaboration under the combined title of MIB. The first fruits of their hook up, "Break It Down", is a catchy streetwise swinger that flings some UKG and 4x4 beats into the mix and shows that the future is definitely rosy for this crew.
Review: MIB (aka DJ Impact and MC Marvel) certainly believe that too much of a good thing is wonderful. Thus, we now have the fourth remix package of their club hit, Break It Down. There are four reworks here, featuring hypey speed garage from Qualified, raw, skippy bass action from Radical DJ, sparse, harsh beats from Brand S and deep future-2step from Tiegato.
Review: Earlier this year we saw Cole Train's DJ Impact team up with 'the legendary' MC Marvel as MIB for the sizzling Break It Down. So pleased with the results were Highly Swung that they've commissioned a selection of follow-up mixes to keep the party going. There are four barnstorming new reworks to choose from: some classic British garage vibes on 99db's "2 Step vocal mix", Tone2 Projeckt' speedier housed version, Zettin Zee's bottom breaky jam and best of all Save Link As' skippy bouncer.
Review: It's Round Two for remixers of "Break It Down", the hit that just keeps giving to Cole Train's DJ Impact and MC Marvel's MIB. Following an earlier collection of mixes, Highly Swung have commissioned a whole bunch more. First up, Pud & Dan deliver an "Evil Dub" which is all scattershot beats and epic breaks before Tony C takes things into nasty, gloriously underground speed garage territory. Elsewhere Junior UK keeps it pop-2step whilst Statix wraps things up nicely with a manic ragga-step dub.
Review: What with the success of both the original and the follow-up remixes, MIB (aka DJ Impact and MC Marvel) have struck sonic gold with their club hit Break It Down. Here we get another sequel in the shape of a third collection of mixes. Operator S delivers a slick 'n bouncy UKG jam, 2 Rotten Scoundrels opt for wobbly bass toughness and Erban Fox looks back to the noughties for some 'white isle electro-house' (also supplied in a darker version). Finally Cellardore wraps things up with a booming minimal bass monster.
