Review: Latch Recordings have really smashed this one out of the park, and it's courtesy of Tribal. If you like your music dark and rolling, this is the release for you, especially if you like your drums crisp, pointed and full of force. The percussion on this release might be the highlight and that's evident on 'Sparkle', which has such a wickedly driving collection of hits and knocks that we're getting a bit hot and sweaty under the collar. 'The Call' is similar and takes you on a rough and tumble journey through sonics that are unpolished in the best way possible. Banging.
Review: Latch Recordings have sensibly opted to put out a compilation to kick off the new year. Why's this sensible? Because everyone bloody loves compilations, even the small ones like New School Collection. This collection of some of the talents in the emerging jump up new school is big (obviously), exemplified best by Tribal's 'Movements', a rip-roaring display of the novel styles emerging in this strand of the scene. The other three also do the movement justice - big stuff from the Latch crew.
