Review: Ruffneck Ting are a label perfectly placed on the border between jungle and jump-up, and this EP from The Force displays their aptitude in selecting the best of both strains. It's a gentle, subtle yet damaging release, one which flows upon a bed of soul yet comes out with fists flying at the other end. 'Second Sight' has the type of funkiness that only reggae music can provide, with stabbing bass touches providing lift and sensation to its clattering, rough and tumble drums. 'Stop The Show' is heavier and has more weight packed behind its stuttering percussion, its bassline wonderfully bouncy and dripping with the sunny skies, eyes closed heritage of reggae and dub music. Wicked.
Review: Often spotted on Low Down Deep, D&B long-timer The Force links up with newcomer Psych for two hair-raising jams on Heist's Calypso. "Head Trip" lives up to its name. Spacious and tense, it's characterised by pranged drawn-out bass notes and eerie harmonics. Real creeper business. It's back up with "Feel Good" also has a telling title... But don't go expecting euphoria for nothing. Vibes as gutsy as this cost at least 10 disgusting bass faces. Where's nan when you need her?
