Dope Ammo & Resinate - "Come Out To Play" - (4:23) 175 BPM
Erb N Dub & Deep Roots - "Insomnia" - (4:46) 175 BPM
Review: Bullets Reloaded is an ongoing project re-firing some shots from the Dope Ammo Records stock. Each round consists of four tracks and feature some of the biggest names in the game. So with all that in mind, get into some of the fire in this first installment, offering up the crazed junglist riddims of ""Roots & Culture" twice, once with a Serial Killaz deadly flex to contend with. Dope Ammo teams up with Resinate to break out the wild and heavy "Come Out To Play" and Erb n Dub and Deep Roots blow up big style with the hyperspeed breaks of "Insomnia". The insanity knows no bounds. Get excited, this series is going to be massive. Be there first.
Various - "Tour De Traum II" (continuous DJ mix by Riley Reinhold) - (1:16:09) 125 BPM
Review: An outstanding duo who constantly come to the table with fresh ideas and a leftfield perspective on electro-tech, Dolby Anol are back after dynamite releases such as "Weapons Of Mass Distraction" and the skewed Eastern chops of "Visa Mastercard" with this newie on Tigerbass. Offering two different perspectives on the same tune, "Red Leather" is underscored by Modeselektor-esque deep Moog action, while "Yellow Leather" speeds things up for a more tropical and jacking feel. Both are essential (and loaded with the same incredible spoken-word samples), while the mighty Kid606 weighs in with a rare remix - taking the bare bones and putting together an acid wig-out of a mix. Finland's Obi Blanche serves up an equally schizophrenic version, while CLAWS smooth things out a little on their slo-mo disco excursion.
Review: Hamburg house producer Lawrence has never made a secret of his influences and on this, his first commercially available mix, he manages to seamlessly unite them. Melchior, Baby Ford and Soul Capsule represent quirky, seductive minimal house, while playfulness mixed with experimentation is audible on Isolee and Roman Flugel's contributions. Lawrence lays bare his love of US house too, with Delano Smith's funk-influenced "My Life" featuring, as does the classic "Forever Monna" by Damier, Trent & Pullen, its soft-focus melodies emerging gradually from Melchior's "Zuknft". Deep, Detroit techno is also on offer too courtesy of Robert Hood and Aril Brikha, and Lawrence also pays tribute to the gentle melodies of 90s 'intelligent techno', ending this sublime mix with Plaid's "Ol".
