Review: Originally released in 2018, Dope Ammo's Influence album is the gully gift that keeps on giving. And right here it reaches the peak with the full remix set. Delivered throughout the year, this is the full collection and it takes Ammo's broad sound to the furthest possible places. Ranging from Kleu's gritty distorted take on "Old Times" to the Audiomission's piano-tickled purring steppy twist on "Take Me Back" by way of some of Ammo's own refixes like the sick tempo flexing on the Indian-flavoured "Repent" and turbo-growls of "Risky Business", these remixes don't just reflect the range of the original album but boost it even further.
Review: Dope Ammo have a seriously unique sound and it's meant that they've stayed remarkably consistent for quite a while, with this EP coming packed full of remixes from Dope Ammo's album from Dope Ammo, Audiomission, Sublow HZ and more. The Audiomission remix of 'Take Me Back' is probably the biggest on the release and has a wonderfully curving bassline that blends and moves with a real feeling of power, if you've heard many other tunes by this man you'll know what we're talking about. The Sublow HZ remix of 'Stir It Up' is lovely and funky yet packs a ferocious jungle bassline on the drop that'll leave you heaving for more. Wicked stuff.
Review: We really hope everyone out there is enjoying this new wave of UKG as much as we are here at Juno Download. The sunshine flavours are extremely prominent at the moment, especially within this wonderful new release from Matt Jam Lamont and Echelon, who deliver a fabulous four track selection to the newly launched Undagrnd Freqz imprint. With these two featuring on every track, we are also given four guest features, the first of which comes from Aki on the incredibly vibrant sub rolls and vocal slices of 'Every Step'. This is followed by the wonderful Shosh getting involved on the more mellow moogy bass rolls of 'Let U Know' before Yemi arrives with a bag of melodic punch with his inputs to 'Treat Ting Me'. Finally, the ever-ready Smokey Bubblin' B arrives with a typically colourful sack of energy, providing the perfect touches to round us off in style!
Review: Following on from an impressive run in the super popular Kiwi Kup, Yemi touches down for an incredibly vibrant four track selection on the ever-dependable Four40, whose productivity seems to know no bounds. We commence with a dive into the stunning piano lines and charming vocal slices of 'Easy Living', before the interesting melodic switch ups and pitch-alterations of 'Skippy' roll into play. Next, Tuff Culture gets involved with his contributions towards the incredibly nostalgic rhythms and harmonies of 'Don't Tell Me', which also happens to complete with a personal rework dub from Yemi himself. Awesome stuff!
Review: As fast rising artist coming through the ranks of a UKG sound, the Manchester-based DJ & producer Yemi recently debut with a single on Strictly Flava. Now arriving on Slime Recordings with the most-accomplished Luv U EP, woozy house chords, two-stepping drum and percussion sequences hook up with classic strands of jazz, house and clever MC sampling that across three tracks brings in soothing and sultry vibes for the well informed dancefloor. While still a mellow trip, all tracks ooze a '90s R&B feel that are melodic, warm, soulful and full of house vibes! Classy.
