Review: Next up from the Time Is Now crew, we see them welcome a fabulous link up as Soul Mass Transit System link up with the ever-ready Killa P for 'Blocked'. This track works as an incredibly vibrant kickstarter, linking together crunchy garage-inspired drum syncopations with potent sub-pressure and Killa P's super catchy vocal lines. This EP also features two top notch solo creations from Soul Mass Transit System, with 'Take My Love' arriving first for a shuffling 2-step masterclass in rhythmic design. Finally, the rolling drum switches and nicely placed vocal slices of 'All Night' round things off in serious style!
Review: Well well, we do have something special here as Soul Mass Transit System deliver a pair of old school rollers, perfect for a refreshing dancefloor dip. We begin with the title track 'Tryna Take My Man Away' which combines a catchy, almost seductive sounding vocal sample with pleasing bass warbles and crispy drum structures with fantastic results. On the flipside to this, we then take in the sounds of 'Slapcrack' a proper throwback of a garage roller, again employing subtle LFO structures to a groovy bassline alongside well processed drums for an instant dance floor-ready slap.
Review: Garage is back and bigger than ever before it would seem, which is why we were so thrilled to see this fabulous new compilation from the Time Is Now crew land, showcasing the perfect balance of new and old school creations. Interplanetary Criminal steps up first with the incredibly catchy vocal and riff work of 'Crazy', followed by the groovy chord plucks and sweeping subs of 'Someone' from Soul Mass Transit System. It all gets a bit rhythmically twisted next as Holloway delivers a fabulous 2-step masterclass with 'Wisemen', chased up by catchy vocal sampling and stripped back composition of 'Mercy' from Mainphase. Finally, Ollie Rant delivers an uplifting harmonic groove with 'Uptown' before we round off on 'Good Day', a slower creation from Wilfy D's catalogue, providing the perfect finale.
