Review: Cold Busted is the scene leader when it comes to hip-hop informed instrumentals. This latest release sees two cult producers supply one slick new jam each. The spectaculalry monikerer 80s Casual is first on the stands, rustling up "Fiesta" - which is a rich Balearic shuffle based around some hypnotic classical Spanish guitar samples. Next Yuri Petrovski presents "True" which in theory, with its sampling of Spandau Ballet's pastel -tinged hit of the same name, would be more appropriately attributed to the name 80s Casual - seeing as that was who originally danced to the tune nback in '83. A sunkissed classic nonetheless though.
Review: A/T/O/S stands for A Taste Of Struggle, and it's safe to say that Amos and Truenoys have certainly put their backs into this project. The duo were originally picked up by Mala back on 2014, and haven't looked back ever since. This is their second LP to date and, much like their debut, it touches upon many different elements of the enlarged dubstep continuum. There's plenty of tunes on here that'll liven up any dance, but this is very much a pensive and meditative bass affair. Much in line with Mala's pioneering 'deep' dubstep, it's clear that the Deep Medi head honcho has foud some new, young, and like-minded talents to carry on his dynasty.
