Review: The Plumps' wide-eared remit continues as they sweep us off our feet for yet another filthy away game. Three cuts in total, each one ticking a totally different party box. "A Hip House Experiment" is no-nonsense four-to-the-floor bass funk with a cheeky vocal refrain and a bassline so juicy it'll stain a hundred sheets. "Rocket Soul" meanwhile sees the duo revisit a classic from their Headthrash album. Retaining the breakbeat rhythm but adding more complexity to the melody, it's a fine contemporisation. Finally we hit their rather naughty remix of Moby's "After"; switching from swinging breaks to a floor-ploughing 4/4 with a bassline so rude it makes Roy Chubby Brown look like the Queen.
Review: The Plumps continue their full-force campaign of dancefloor dominance with "Super Imploder", an unpredictable, cheek-slapping electro burner that's every part as funky as it is filthy. With mighty pose-striking stabs, a gurgling acid riff and a pounding 4/4 rhythm it's an instant crowd charger laced with all manner of peaktime textures. Perfect for all explosive party situations.
Review: It seems that the tireless souls heading up Punks are at it again as they bring back the legendary Plump DJs for a top draw remix project, featuring two very exciting overhauls of the well received 'Lose Your Mind'. We begin the party with the irresistible sounds of Tru Fonix who send the track to the neurotic blender, rearming it with sharp shuffled bass stabs and lively drum expressions. On the flip we are introduced to a breaksy masterpiece as Beatslappaz get to work with an explosive recreation, focussing on sublow triplets and pulsating sub work. Both of these are set to do some serious damage!
Review: New State have the honour and privilege of unveiling this extremely hard hitting original collection from the living legends: Stanton Warriors, with their new album project 'Dance Floor'. The album from start to finish gives an excellent showcase of what is going in bass music worldwide, with a selection of originals from their in house label: Punks and more. From listening through, our highlights have to include the subtle, techy flavours of Foundry's 'About Your Love' remix, featuring Lily Mckenzie, along with the punchy collaboration with Taiki Nulight entitled 'Beat Up' and of course Left/Right's spooky rethink of the title track 'Rise'.
