Review: Birmingham lad Micky Slim drops his first release of 2010 on Bomb Squad. This twisted, dark sounding house assault also comes with brand new remixes from Stupid Fresh, Kitch n Sync, Luvstuff and Barbed Wire Babies. Watch you distance around this explosive release.
Review: Kissdafunk is one of the legendary house music nights born out of the North of the UK (formed by Glyn Tolley and DJ Rob Tissera), which over the years helped carve the scene and pave the way for an unprecedented amount of DJs and producers. It makes perfect sense then for them to start a compilation series reflecting the past whilst looking ahead to the future, and an exciting one it is too. Here we have just shy of 40 full length tracks, for a mere L8.99 and packed full of dance-floor dynamite, with; Will Gold, My Digital Enemy, Carl Cox, The Squatters, Paul Morrell, and Kryder being just a handful of the talent on offer... Get stuck right in!!
Review: Next up from the impeccable roster arranged over at CR2 Digital, we take a welcome look into the third edition of their 'Basslines' series, a flagship compilation to rival the previous two, featuring an incredibly wide range of electronic musical stylings. From the 4x4 flavours of Low Steppa, Skapes, Jay Robinson and more, to the high energy D&B reworks of S.P.Y, DJ Marky, A Sides and more, there really isn't much ground this EP doesn't cover. Across the twenty two tracks we have been able to pick out some very specific highlights however, including the nostalgic chord progressions and shuffling drums of 'Seek & Find', a wicked collaboration between Paul Rayner & FevaSoul. We also see Don Diablo's 'Animale' given the once over by The Prototypes in explosive fashion, with our third highlight coming from My Cat Snoop, with a vibrant moody roller by the name of 'Yo Mama'. Awesome work!
