Review: With glitch and funk being two crucial ingredients in Adapted's bass-baked cake, it's kind of surprising that they haven't curated a set like this before. 15 tracks, each one focusing on the more laidback, groove-heavy side of the dance, the title really does say it all. You want highlights? Of course you do... Check the shimmering, soaking wet guitar lines and Bootsy-busting P-funk of Beat Fatigue's "Funk Tube", the 80s synths and LA vision of Farfectch D's "The Fever" and the grizzly gurgles and short, sharp horn stabs of Spekrfreks' "Juke Joint". Job done.
Review: Three years on and Subway Recordings has firmly established themselves as one of the foremost Dutch dubstep labels, yet they do not by any means limit themselves to genre or sound. This Destination compilation takes us through the grimey, the dark, the deep, the dancefloor and the experimental in turn. Noah D's "Hardcore" kicks off with a thrilling combination of jagged neon synths and harsh sub bass cheekiness, before Akkachar & Taz Buckfaster drop sci fi sounds on "187 On A Rock" and DJ Madd delivers the twitching Ramandanman sensibilities of "Bass Comedown". Mayhem & Whisperlink provide an early highlight with "Trap Or Die" filled with bleepy SFX and dark, rumbling basslines underpinning the ominous, vocodered vocal sample. Rivalling this is "Rumble" by Reso & Vent - a sure fire dancefloor driven killer. Here the rowdy, bass-heavy wobbles and smacking drum kicks really up the ante and we are transported deep into the peaktime heavy hitters. All in all, it's a comprehensive array of tracks here from some highly talented, genre-pushing artists which should, really, not be missed.
