Review: Recently spotted on Dutta's Informal collabing with Dr Meaker, Devon newcomer Rosco makes his official EP debut with three absolute trouser melters. Nodding back to the early 2010s when the likes of Annix changed the game with ravaging hooks and twisted sound designs and minimal elements, each of these cuts is designed to tear your wig off in the mix. Murky moments along the way include the high voltage scream and sudden silence on the breakdown of "When I'm Alone" and the infectious riff energy and bounce of the finale "Summer Vibes". You can never have enough vibes like these.
Dr Meaker & Rosco - "We Go Darker" - (4:45) 175 BPM
Nick The Lot - "Straggler" - (4:02) 176 BPM
Phadix - "Nothing More" - (4:28) 175 BPM
Stokka & Mozzy - "Chop Shop" - (4:29) 172 BPM
Lumia - "Deep Dive" - (4:28) 175 BPM
Lumia - "Emergency Evac" - (4:28) 175 BPM
Septon - "Condensate" - (4:50) 172 BPM
Cramz - "Destruction" (VIP) - (4:28) 174 BPM
Review: Informal is a relatively new record label who have jumped into the scene all guns blazing, having released a string of releases over the past few months. Now, they're launching their first ever VA LP and it's top quality, with sounds that span a wide variety of styles, from rolling liquid to dirty naughtiness. 'Straggler' by Code Lost is definitely in the latter category and it's definitely one of the best on the release, with a cavernous bassline of spinning twirls and a pulsating epicentre that pushes out the rest of the track in a slick fashion. One to cop, this.
