Review: Murdock is no stranger to releasing music, but this is his first full long player and boy, he's done a good job of it. Rolling out on Viper Recordings, Stronger is an incredibly diverse bit of work that shimmers from jungle, into dancefloor and over into liquid with relative ease, an impressive feat for any producer. 'Breathe' feautirng Goldi Phone Home is a gorgeous roller that packs an equally sweet bouncing, bubbly bassline, one that flows and moves underneath the skipping drums and lovely vocal work. There's wicked jungle on 'Different Way', big synthy sounds on 'All Day All Night' and a bunch more. What a release!
Review: Off the back of their incredibly successful festival Rampage, Murdock and Doctrine are unleashing a four-track remix EP of their tune On A Rampage. The first is a VIP from themselves that pushes the original to the next level with a crescendo of synth energy, before taking off with their recognizable blend of neurofunk and jump-up influences. Speaking of neurofunk, legends of that scene Ed Rush & Audio aka Killbox are on form with their remix, taking those classic stabs from the original and somehow making them even more hyped, clattering drums contributing another dimension that propels this one even further. Funtcase is the first of the dubstep remixes and displays the diversity endemic to Rampage Festival. Their remix captures the imagination from the start with ridiculous energy, we knew the dubstep treatment was coming and it doesn't get heavier than this. By the time you reach Oolacile's remix things are getting familiar but not boring, boredom being an impossibility when Oolacile's sledgehammer of force is coming at you, a breakdown switch-up to D&B injecting a nice element of creativity to round off a sick EP.
