Review: No strangers to Good 4 Nothing, Breakout and Steryx link up for some brash bassline behaviour on the long-standing label. As you'd expect from such a tag-team, it's tear-up after tear-up as they pair go in with stripped back dynamics, grotty textures and high energy bass. 'Bullets' fires off deadly shots with big harmonics, 'Cell Activity' plays Q&A with unknown aliens, 'No Expense' hits with bouncy old school early 2000s jump up charm while 'Malevolent' hums with pure menace. Shots fired!
Review: Both bubbling away on labels like Good 4 Nothing and Eternal Muzic, Breakout and Steryx collide for four addictive contemporary jump-up bangers. 'Rules' sets the scene with a monstrous bounce and widescreen harmonics on the bassline, 'Listen' gets sharper and more streamlined in its pace and focus while 'Torture' is much darker and tense. Finally Jay Jay joins the fray for the old school funk-up 'Mystic', a cut that licks up with classic 2000 jump-up cheekiness. Killa.
Review: Errors are lessons waiting to be taught... Or just straight up bangers in the case of young Steryx who seems to be rising a mile a minute with his epic, high energy output in recent months. Following his meaty Tin Pan Sound EP last month comes this badman package. 'Error' is all about the angular funk and grizzled groove while 'Pay Attention' takes on more of a Belgian flavour with its high pitched harmonic tweaks and ball-kicking drums. 10/10 - no errors here.
Review: Having established himself with a heavyweight collab EP last year featuring the likes of Blckhry, Amplify and Stillz, Steryx has continued to level up with every release so far. 'Headshot' could well be his biggest, though. Four cuts, each one hitting harder than hammers with crisp, heavy mixdowns, the vibe is relentless and widescreen; the title track is the peaktime smash-em-up drama and it's backed by tense nuggets. 'Perception' is all about that taut aggy bass stab, 'Get Down' swaggers with a little early 2000s style flavour all bleepy and switchy while 'Comeback' seals with the deal with its mischievous Q&A and bright breaksy fills. For the heads(hot).
