Future Parisian rhythms; [Re]Sources [re]mix the debut document that came our way this time last year and instantly won them friends such as Monki, Woz and Roska. First up She's Drunk gets busy on "Pulse", playing havoc with the space-travelling breakbeat with funky mischief. Galtier kicks it old school with classic rave samples and breakbeats over the still-haunting bleep hook of "Suspect" while Krizzli shuts things down with a twisted jungle take on "Wait". Steppy stop-starts with well chiselled gnashers, it chomps up the drama with a great sense of dark momentum before dropping you into the dreamiest of pads. Game changer.
Tommy Kid touches down on Sounds Of Sumo for his second EP on the bass-oriented label and delivers seven tracks and remixes of pure, unadulterated nu-garage house fury! The first, "Jetlag", contains the funkiest chords known to man; "Bouncing Drops" is a gorgeous sci-fi roller of a tune and "I Know" goes all twisted with metallic cowbells and glorious, hissing percussion. "Easy Street (VIP)" is edgier and more urban, adding raved-out chords to a puritan dubstep groove, making it the sure winner of the lot. As for the remixes, CDBL transforms "Jetlag" into a sinister, Dubfire-reminiscent tech-roller, whilst Mark Starr shapes "I Know" into a broken, old-school house affair, and Kingsin adds a hip-hop twist to "Bouncing Drops". Impressive vibes from the Sumo crew!
Straight out of Paris, Tommy Kid makes his debut for Sound of Sumo with this very large EP of murky bass treats. Title tune "East Street" recalls Boddika's spacey dub textures and crisp beats, while the more heavy-hitting "Foot Control" doses you up with sub-punishing bass wrapped around a chilly tropical-tech beat. "Alarm Riddim" is the real party starter though, with an upfront and jacking beat weaved into schizophrenic melodies and cloudy pads. With an extensive set of class remixes also on offer, our favourites so far are Misterweeks' hazy house rejig of "East Street" and Arcade's brilliantly twitchy UKF rerub of "Pump Up The Bass", but others from Kingsin, Squarehead Pasteman and more are all well worth investigating.
[RE]SOURCES head honcho Tommy Kid is DJ/producer/promoter based in Paris who also does a weekly show on Rinse France. His new jam "Raptor" is dark, deep dubstep on the street level that's as polyrhythmic as you like and rolls pretty damn well, too. It also comes with some wicked remixes by some global up and comer of the bass music scene. First up is Los Angeles' self confessed 'professional badass' Ana Sia with her rendition: which is more chilled and merges deeper tech house elements into the mix to sublime effect. Finally UK's Murder He Wrote of Roska Kicks & Snares fame throws down a truly bass heavy assault that strips the tracks down to its raw element.
