Review: Well, when we see releases like this one move into view, it's difficult to describe UKG as anything other than thriving as we are gifted sixteen brand new belters, all stuffed full of nostalgic 2-steppy themes and fantastic vocal leads, showcasing just how strong the scene is looking right about now. We are introduced to a fantastic roster as major UKG players FooR, Soulecta, Blakk Habit, Rico Tubbs, Wittyboy and more are spread throughout the tracklisting, with our personal favourites including the super original, drum heavy grimey twists of 'Where I Wanna Be' from Vital Techniques and CB's super colourful 'Room 931'. Truly excellent work on this one!
Review: Phwoar! Whether you've experienced this crew's massive arena-filling Exodus parties or not, this 32-track release is a fitting finale to yet another monstrous year for Chuckie and friends. A sizzling sonic snapshot of the Dirty Dutch family their most extended, we're treated to cuts from across the board - from the rampant tech-electro of Marco V's "Solid Sounds" to the groovier, squelchier vibes of Sebastian Leger's rub of Format B. A true spread with every hour of the night in mind, this is the most comprehensive project the double D crew have curated to date.
Review: Featuring tracks from such luminaries as Hudson Mohawke, Benga and 16bit alongside new talent such as Shift Key and Morcee, Bullet Train Volume Two, selected by Bullet Train label head Marco Del Horno and Last Japan, spans the breadth of everything that's important right now in dubstep, bass and UK funky. Featuring a continuous DJ mix from the duo, as well as all the tracks unmixed, highlights include the snare driven riddims of Lil' Silva's "Patience", the massive dubstep bassline of Marco Del Horno and DJ Swerve's "Ho Riddim" and the fluid percussive workout that is R1 Ryders' "Just A Feeling".
