Review: There's something decidedly old skool about this breezer stepper from the Riddim Fruit camp. Boasting a weary but emotion-rich vocal, twinkling melodies, rubbery double bass and retro-futurist two-step beats, the original version of "Step By Step" sits somewhere between the jazzier end of two-step, broken beat and dubstep. It should go down well with those who enjoy the musically developed productions of, say, Maddslinky. The Pulsar remix, meanwhile, adds some heavier bass and a fluid dubstep shuffle, while retaining the original's autumnal beauty.
Review: The unusually monikered Tosses & Varvez hail from Italy and perform a live 'Beat 'n Scratch' act which they describe as a 'four hands DJ set and scratch' show. This EP sees the guys hook with singer Missin Red, and the title track marries a chunky breakbeat to and up-tempo reggae groove. Jazz K Lippa also delivers an eccentric remix that combines dubstep and, erm, dub. "Quattro" follows a similar dubstep path with an added rap. Finally "Marble Rock" is lighter, featuring spacey synths.
