Review: Towards the end of 2019, we were actively wondering whether the Four40 movement would be able to maintain the high quantity and quality release structures into the new decade, and boy does it look like they can. This latest drop from them sees them unveil the vibrant bass-experiments of Tom Bull for a storming stomper entitled 'Rukus', dripping in original LFO action and colourful drum movement. This is a must have for any 4x4 DJ, looking to bring an additional touch of energy to the dance.
Review: For a label that only launched this spring, Nu Wave has taken no prisoners whatsoever. Repping the funkier side of garage and the darker side of deep house, Deckstar and Steve Brooke have established a distinctive sonic signature in a very short space of time. Here we find them tethering their past work with a number of exclusives to form this highly accomplished debut compilation. Ranging from the dark bubble/jazz-chord balance of Deckstar's "Wondering" to Lee Martin's organ-slapping "Wanna Be" via Duo and Chantelle Rowe's blistering vocal stunner "Enough Of Your Love", Nu Wave paint an on-point picture with clarity and originality.
