Review: This latest instalment of Trouble & Bass' series of exclusives sees man of the moment Samo Sound Boy take the helm - dropping two newies that'll reinforce his standing as one of America's hottest electro-rave producers. "Rattlesnake" is straight-up huge: a menacing mix of Dutch house-style bleep leads that ride the octaves over a switching set of tropical kicks. "Burning and Stealing" goes in for a more jacking, post-Chicago flavour, using heavily reverbed soul vocals and filtered horns to create something highly unique and constantly surprising.
Review: After 14 blinding releases, the Trouble & Bass crew have compiled the best of the bass for this collection of original releases from their epic series of gonzoid-electro bangers. From the snakey Dutch leads of Drop The Lime's "Doomsday Device" to the hardcore dubstep tweaks of "Days Go By" by Boogaloo Crew, this is a must-have for anyone who missed out on the earlier Champion releases. Rico Tubbs and Calvertron are to be found in typically ravey form on "Body Free", while Baobinga mixes nasty rap verses with bassline beats on "Make It Drop". With AC Slater, Mumdance, Samo Sound Boy, Marc Remillard and Zombies For Money also included, this is an essential collection of the finest bass beats out there.
