The V machine cranks up a gear once more with the follow up to Virgo & Duggan's chest-denting Bigger Bass collection in the summer. 20 tracks, all in demand dubs and unreleased set-slayers for Virgo over the years, it's another hard-hitting, floor-focused collection tailored for deep mix chops and slaps. Highlights bump and bash throughout but you'd be mad not to chow down on the toxic bass squelches of "Oh", the springy mischief and crafty score-foreplay of "Home Alone 2", the heavily swung asteroid blasting rave-piece "Swagger Sound" and the mental 4x4 grime hybrid "Back Of My T". Big, bad and dangerous.
What an absolute banger of a year it's been for Mr V so far. Denting 2017 with "Bits" and a reboost of his game-changing 2009 wounder "Hypnotiq" he ripped the summer a new one with the launch of his Bigger Bass imprint via a killer 20 track album and a mix from bassline OG Jamie Duggan AND slapped us silly with last month's "Drop That Bass". Now he returns on a grime flex with four crucial, stepped-out vibes: "Buss It" is a mic riot as P Money and Stormin get lively over a sci-fi creeper, "Red" messes with Kraftwerkian chemistry while "Jazzy" balances thug economics with horn dynamics. Finally with its sharp staccato strings "Next Tune" closes on a bare Psycho note. Savage indeed.
