Northampton's king of future jungle-bass-rave Ritchie Kellingray is back with a new long player, Outrageous, under his Strange Rollers moniker. It's a meaty old listen too with a variety of urban bass sounds all cooked up in the roasting dish, through the piano hardcore of opener "Dance With Me", the boomy dub-hop of "Follow", the DnB-meets-reggae instrumental "Sweet Reggae Music" and the deep Enigma-goes-rave mystic swirls of "Broken Glass".
Up and coming UK producer Strange Rollers is a bit of a jack of all trades, you could say. He makes anything upwards of bass driven house to breakbeat, jungle and dubstep through to house and acid tracks. He says 'anything goes in my book' so watch out for the crossover styles in each of his tracks. First offering "The Dark" is exactly what you'd expect by its name on this tough and nefarious roller for the late night, where sharp and snappy beats are assisted by expertly executed lo-end theories. "Fog Machine" successfully merges early '90s rave breakdowns (think Fantazia!) with the kind of nu-skool breaks at the turn of the millennium by Aquasky.
