Review: George Michael taught us whispers could be careless but Zombie Recordings are here to teach us how Whispers can also be absolutely savage. Well, this one certainly is. Hailing from Hungary with previous on the likes of Levela's Muti Function, here he comes with a blazing five-track session that oozes wonky, left-of-center charm. All aimed squarely for the dancefloor, highlights range from the Machete-style bass barks of 'Warn People' to outrageous funk and vibes of 'Clean Up'. Fun, rough round the edges but produced with pure punch, it's hard not to compare this to early 2000s Bristol D-Minds vibes. And that's before we get to the twisted rave echoes and insane bassline on the title track. Trust us, we'll be shouting about Whisper for a long time to come.
Review: You think being on lockdown is hard? Trying a sentence in the 'Gulag' and then say something. Hard times call for hard music as the currently unstoppable Metal Work continues his 'Gulag' EP with six uncompromising grunters. 'Gulag Survivor' takes off where part one left us; working to the bone while being pummelled by rifle-like bass. Other punishments include the high voltage sizzles and grizzles of 'High Tech', the pure abrasion and trippy, warped bass grit of 'War' and the out-and-out drama of his remix of last year's nasty 'Losing Myself'. Sentence complete, now lockdown feels like Disney Land. R8ing this one m8.
