Review: Burt Cope and Wang Records? What an absolutely fabulous combination we have on our hands here as we welcome two of the brightest outfits in UKG. The single itself takes the title 'Desire' and forms itself into a blissful arrangement of colourful melodies, beautiful vocal additions and well processed drum chops. With the track constantly expanding across different rhythms and harmonies, this is a direction we are absolutely loving from Burt Cope and when the nightlife of the UK reopens, we can be sure to hear this brightening up evenings around the country.
Review: The campaign for real, modern UKG continues unabated over at Instinct, as another crew of like-minded bassbin botherers step up with their own fresh takes on the 2-step sound. Pinder is super speedy and tight as you like with "Forever", while Instinct regular 0113 gets freaky with the subtly tripped out "Hard Lines". Zac Stanton is perhaps the stand out turn on this EP with the absolutely surefooted and sharply soulful "Stop Tellin Me". Holloway comes in strong too though, channeling that impeccable Ghost sound for the stripped and spooky "Places To Be". Classy club gear throughout.
