The Yard Man - (7:30) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Brotha - (8:25) 128 BPM
Review: Rekids boss Matt Edwards hooks up with emerging producer Patrick Mason for another outing as SRVD. "The Yard Man" is a banging affair, with a discordant riff at its centre, while deranged vocal samples and wild chants serve to add to the track's individualistic - and effective - appeal. "Brotha" is a less upfront affair, but once again the pair draw on reggae/dub influences, as a swirling, spacey filter underpins soulful vocals over a chugging dub techno groove. It's a laid-back counterpoint to "The Yard Man" and sets out this project as one of the most innovative in modern electronic music.

Talking 2 B Mad - (9:09) 133 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Twitch - (8:23) 130 BPM
Review: "Talking 2 B Mad" is the third collaboration on Rekids between label owner Matt Edwards and upcoming producer Patrick Mason under the SRVD alias. Like the previous Eps under this name, it shows that the pair have perfected a hard-hitting techno sound. The title track cruises along in excess of 130bpm, its pummelling drums breaking down into frazzled trance riffs that have echoes of Thomas Heckmann. "Twitch" isn't quite as frenetic, but once again, it sees them dive headlong into a driving percussive sound. Powered by pounding kicks and littered with dissected vocal samples, these elements make for the most eloquent big-room techno that you'll hear this year.

Black On Black - (7:52) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
USB - (7:05) 126 BPM
Review: The incendiary partnership that is Patrick Mason and Rekids boss Matt Edwards' SRVD project returns to the label for this tough two-tracker. On the title track, the pair lay down pummelling tribal drums, dense thunder claps and a searing, hardcore bass. These elements provide the basis for a vocal narrative about wearing black - presumably a reflection of the sartorial choices of the audiences that they play to. "USB" also takes influence from 90s sources, but on this occasion, the pair keep the vocals to a minimum, fusing time-stretched shrieks with pounding kicks and coruscating rave riffs that burn their way through the arrangement.

Review: SRVD is a new collaborative project between Radio Slave and the art director Patrick Mason, and sees the pair focus on tracky house. The title track is a driving, heads-down affair, with a hypnotic vocal refrain unfolding over tough drums and swirling synth lines. Both the original and the tough dub version are exactly the kind of tracks you'd expect Radio Slave to drop in a club. "Nasty" also features vocals, but on this occasion they unfold to the back drop of rolling snares, receptive whoops and crashing metallic drums. The result sounds like "Witchdoktor"-era Armand Van Helden on angel dust.
