Review: EPs don't get more diverse and dancefloor ready than this one from Jak, who has roped in Mofes and Kumo to help him craft his devilishly made club-friendly sounds. Rather than a copy-paste exercise, Nuusic and Jak are living up to their reputations by bringing four unique, differentiated cuts to the table. 'Siren' feat Kumo is the pick of the bunch, as a rolling Break-esque drum line cuts through a sparsely arranged but effectively spacious array of Sofa Sound-type bass nodes. Proper sick, and there's clicky tech funk on 'Snow', jump-up force on 'Lace Up' and sub-heavy, sine-wobbling goodness on 'Akimbo'. Big.
Review: Onyx are one of the best new labels to emerge onto the scene in the last couple of years, with their surge in popularity attributable to both their wicked free download series' on Soundcloud and their penchant for biting drum & bass. Mofes is on the label this time around and he's coming with a seriously serious three-tracker, the standout of which is 'Carnage', a powerful roller that lands heavily with every kick of the drum and snap of the snare. It has a scary amount of force and momentum, and it exemplifies an EP which cuts at the edge of futuristic drum & bass.
