It's perhaps a bit of a stretch to class all of these floor-friendly bootlegs as "ragga". The opener from label bosses The Dirty Dubsters is actually a skanking, dubwise, breaks-friendly rework of soul classic "Papa Was A Rolling Stone". Titan Sound's "Boom In The Jungle" sounds a bit like a slightly more dutty take on the classic reggae/hip-hop mash-ups once successfully peddled by J-Star. Perhaps the biggest cut of the lot, though, is the gargantuan skank of ZJ TZinas and Mrbigk's "My Style Is De Bomb". That said, the incessant ragga bounce of Spenda's "Get Hot Bun Dem" runs it close, if only for the amount of whoops it manages to cram into four minutes!
Bass=Win are notorious for their half-step bombs, and we have here a fresh new various artists EP containing some of the best new names on the block. Rico Tubbs and Spenda C go for sub-level-induced, Southern hip hop tip on "ShakeDown", whilst Deep's "Anthem" is an aqueous escapade into jelly-like synths and metallic percussion dabs, all the while surrounded by the sound of the deep and dirrrty Southern crunk. "Bad Bitches" by RatTrap and Jesse Slayter is a fast-paced techno/crunk workout with a seriously twisted drop and Pigeonfox's "Burnout" gives a straight up middle finger to all the haters out there - loud, brash and absolutely tasty!
