Review: This release honestly doesn't mess around. It carries a serious sense of potency because D&B of this type simply isn't about sophistication, it's about making something so filthy the audience won't even understand what hit them. It's proper music, basically. Jack The Ripper and co have certainly accomplished that here, I mean just have a listen to the rippling sines, percussive naughtiness and bassline badassery that is 'Eerie', a beautifully spacious tune that still manages to make you feel like you've been attacked by a dog. This is a crazy release from start to finish and one well worth picking up.
Review: Toxinate and Young Guns - two names that you should've heard of if you're into your jump up - have teamed up for a naughty collection of tunes that will strike a chord with anyone who's been tapped into the jump-up resurgence these past couple of years. With a diverse range of sounds within the jump-up canopy, Serial Killer is an EP on a mission, a mission statement if you will. The title track has a wicked set of snapping, rolling drums that underpin a gargling amalgamation of sounds, textures and tones - this is proper stuff. The rest of the release continues on that same trajectory and man, it's sick.
Review: Fresh from a whole slew of savagery on Young Guns and Bio Beats, Yung Toxinate lays the smack down on Cave with three naughty naughty numbers. 'Illegal Narcotics' will spin you out with its laser basses and gun loads, 'Whispers' screams sweet everythings in your ears by way of a pitched up vocal and a warped, molten bassline sizzle before 'Clueless' sees the Cornish act tagging in with Nautik for a trippy, tripletty finale that has more questions than answers. Get high off Toxinate's supply.
