Review: Leeds based top boy selectors Vital Techniques return here to their home label 'Second To None' alongside long term collaborator: MC Pean, for four top draw creations. We kick off with an exciting collaboration project with Leeds mic legends Dialect and P Solja, who provide some heavyweight flows on 'Santander'. Following this, we dip into the garage-inspired switch ups and bouncy textures of 'Oi', before 'Militant' rolls into focus on a new school 140 flex, packed full of delicious synth energy and sharp drum smashes. We finish this one off with a look at the more experimental flavours of 'Write Him Off', which forms into an electronic hip-hop style structure, bristling with tasty distorted subs and Pean's strongest vocal of the project in our opinion.
Review: It's pretty clear that Vital Techniques have not let the lockdown period slow down their inspiring work ethic as they get busy sourcing four explosive remixes to their vibrant collaboration with MC Pean entitled 'Bun Up The Ting'. We kick off with J69's old school niche bassline rethink, adding extensive wobbly bass designs and high energy drum runs into proceedings, followed by Soulecta's nostalgic UKG flip, perfect for the sunshine. Next, Danny T & Tradesman switch it up with a crunchy grime recreation before Sublow Hz sends the acapella into the jump up blender for the final overhaul, giving this project a fantastic amount of variety from start to finish.
