Review: Nope Left/Jacq/Right have not taken to covering Michael Jackson. This is an altogether different kind of "Bad". Real Bad if you know what we mean. Dallas legend Left/Right (aka Chris Lund) has hooked up with aspiring singer JACQ (aka Jacqueline Jaquez) here for a melodramatic anthem. Underpinned by a fuzzy electro bounce, the tune utilises chopped up vocal techniques and bleepy synths to hypnotic effect. They need to do more stuff together we reckon.
Review: Based out of Texas, Left/Right has been making serious waves over the last 18 months or so in regular collaboration with the ever present; Punks Music. His latest single 'Leave It' is truly something to behold, having been rated a 5/5 by heavyweight names such as Plump DJs and Mickey Slim whilst also being named DJ Mag's 'Track of the Month' with a 9.5 review. All in all it's an anthem, encapsulating everything cool about the current wave of bass music, with pulsating drone bass synths, breathy vocal stabs and punchy drums marching their way comfortably into 2017's bass highlight reel.
Review: Left, Right and Jacq's recent escapades for the Punks stable have gone down rather well, leading them to have what is surely their most iconic tune to be remixed and rewired for this latest episode. The original of "Bad" is in here, still giving off that dreamy glow of intricate drums and sultry vocals, but Worthy takes no time in twisting the original into a stretched-out piece of hybrid house with added levels of bass; Born Dirty is no less gnarly thanks to an injection of off-kilter cowbells and minimalistic harmonies, whereas Stranger utterly reframes the formula to produce a fuzzy cloud of low frequencies from the depths of the inferno.
Review: Moscow based disco label Vehicle is at it again and delivers the goods as always. They've taken the razor to some oldies but indeed goodies on the Summer Boogie EP. There's quite an all star cast on offer here if we have ever seen one. American/Puerto Rican latin jazz legend Ray Barretto appears with his classic "Fulltime Paradise", the soulman himself Roy Ayers appears also with "Fever". Honorable mentions also to Greek sex symbol Denis Roussos with his majestically sleazy "M-Time" and The Beatles aka The Bugs with "Srgnt Ppr's".. err exucse me? Oh don't worry, groove on!
