Review: If we were to give an award for label of the year based entirely on consistency, it would be hard to see Four40 not running away with it as they finally round off what has been an untouchable year with one last killer compilation. Royal Flush takes the role of compiler on this one, pulling in some scorchers from the likes of Soulecta, ZeroFG, Jack Junior, Tuff Culture, Earthnut and of course Royal Flush himself. There are a couple of tracks here we feel really hold their own amongst a stacked line up, with Pavv's classic sounding '3210' being one of them, alongside 'Guilty Twitches' from Ozwald and the choppy vibes of 'Love Is Coming' from the legendary EL-B.
Review: The Highly Swung second instalment of the Highly Anticipated series is back and out to annihilate all corners of the bass spectrum with thirteen absolutely rocking garage monsters for the modern ear! Big, bad and proud, the imprint launches a tasty selection of artists who are carrying on the UK' fine tradition of swinging beats and bouncy basslines, with peeps like 8th Note, Anonymous People, and James Lavonz all getting their own strains of club beats through to your speakers. Sexy, sleek and seductive, these are perfect party tunes which offer moody vibes to the headz, and the romantic swing for the lovers. Nice one!
Review: An emerging talent on London's garage scene, Prescribe Da Vibe drops two truly delightful new tunes on this new EP. "Such A Thing" is a warm, soulful mix of 70s Philly samples married to an itchy, old-skool jacking garage beat, while "Hear Me Out" is a Todd Edwards-esque beauty, complete with phased bass hits and scrambled vocal shots that comes together brilliantly to once again add some much-needed soul to UKG.
