Two originals, two remixes, two co-labs: "Dualities" is a more than handsome collection of sounds that expresses the skillish signatures of the individuals and their strength in numbers. Both the title track and B-Ju's "Kids On Fire" are a defiant homage to jungle's robust roots and its intrinsic relationship with juke music. Deeper into the set we're stunned by smoky Slohmo-style bass swings ("Red Vines") and skippy, jazzed-out D&B drama on Ticklish's "Jealousy". Dualities? Quadruplicities more like.
Footwork junkie Ticklish hits up Beat Machine with a solid floor masher that is veritably hybridisable in its gene-pool and stylistic approach. "Lost" contains elements of just about every noticeable genre of UK dance music, and with a break-driven rhythm, Ticklish lays down an absolute belter of a tune back by a powerful morph-bass. Bass pioneer Addison Groove is up for remix duties, and the man transforms "Lost" into a chillier, more minimal once tool with a neat 808 approach and some bouncy bass tones for hypnotic effect. Sick.
