Review: Pocus imprint delivers yet another exciting collection of international banger-brandishing talent. Symptom kick off with a classic vocal sample on ?Come On Strong?, what follows is an immersive blend of all-style bass hedonism: tribal rolling drum thunder (Nian Dub - ?Usurper?), dagger-funk jump up (Dan Miracle?s ?Poseidon?s Wrath?) potty-drum amen-snapping jungle (Jinx ? ?Days Gone By?) and straight up roughage (Sterling Sound ? ?Murder Capital?) all play a role in this 10 track adventure, meaning you?re guaranteed to find delights whichever sub-genre you enjoy shaking a stick at the most.
Review: Bryan Gee's bumper Club Sessions series continues like the drum & bass juggernaut it is with volume five. Since appearing on the scene back in 2005 with an album packed with exclusives from Roni Size, Fresh, Calibre and dBridge, the label have come back stronger than ever with their latest instalment. Featuring modern heroes Need For Mirrors, Peshay and Eveson alongside fresh talent from the likes of Pennygiles, Duoscience, Atlantic Connection and Flaco, each track is a reassurance that drum & bass from the Liquid V corner of the scene is still going strong. At 28 tracks plus two mixes featuring MCs Stamina and TRAC, how could you say no?
