Review: Fresh from his debut solo single last month, AFT fam Tuskan reveals the full debut EP four-courser, complete with all the trimmings. 'As We Enter' sets the tone with spicy urgency and groaning harmonics, 'Foul Play' is a full hearty main course with a cool sample and a gritty, unruly Q&A riff while 'Send It' is the sweet and squelchy dessert with its funky soggy bottom end. Last but not least 'Beast Reign' slips and slides off your plate with treacle-like charm. Yeah, it's a second dessert because you're greedy for the good stuff and so are we. Bon appetite.
Review: Previously taking us all into "Warp Drive" on AFT - way back in February when the world seemed like a very different place - Ambush family members Dubbz & Oz return with another powerful selection. Two tunes, two vibes: "A Better Way" is a gargantuan stamper laced with big tunnel-like basslines and a hearty swagger. "Chinese Silk" flips for the vibe for a party-ready jump-up piece that bubbles with a Serum-style harmonic riffy bassline. Smooth.
Review: Hazmat suits at the ready: Khemikal returns to AFT and it's pure warfare. "R U Stupid" has you asking yourself some serious questions while shooting you with spiked out laser basses, "Sub Zero" takes you down the foundry and gives you a lesson in how to cut steel with your own teeth while "Watch The Bass" is a lavish, loose-drummed roller with all the sweet psychedelic spirals and deliciously weird FX. You want more concrete melting laser bass stabs? Head on over to "Primrose" a track that stinks a lot more than its floral name suggests. Fire in the hole!
