Review: Italian powerhouses in their own rights, Turno and Gino link up for two of the most furious D&B tear-ups Crucast have ever released. 'The Swarm' is a hornet's nest of a track with stabby bass textures stinging and pinging all over the place while 'Hysteria' brings the lotion... Big rave flavours build up into a drop that's so disgusting you have a criminal record for just knowing about it. Think Original Sin down the gym every day doing 200kg deadlifts. Hysterical scenes.
Review: When isn't it fun to see a new Skepsis release landing in the store eh? This time around he makes his way back into the CruCast forefront, delivering a vibrant collection of remixes as part of his 'Faith In Chaos' project, opening up with a sizzling VIP overhaul of 'Acid', deploying fizzing electronic synth drives right from the jump, before Window Kid's vocals on 'Lose My Mind' are given a new lick of bassy paint from WA-FU & Interupt. From here, fan-favourite: Daseplate arrives with his typically swampy rethink of 'Chain Gang', before the hissing synth designs of Turno are unleashed with his new version of 'Used To'. Serum then arrives to give a colourful lick of paint to 'Bumpa' alongside Scrufizzer, with some seriously cool synth design, followed by Disrupta's final addition, sending 'R U Ready' down a glittering spire of sonic wonder to round off this collection in style. Epic work!
Review: Following his epic release on Rampage just weeks ago, one-man-boyband AC13 now jumps aboard the massive cruise liner that is Crucast. Featuring the man himself on vocals, 'Take Me Down' sizzles and fizzes with switches galore but leaves enough space for his emotional lyrics to cut through in a similar way to how Chase & Status and Plan B's 'Pieces'. 'Scanning Pages' goes even wilder with the bass tones as a Sub Focus 'Siren' style warp dominates the mix over a series of chainsaw basses and another one of AC's heartfelt vocals. Someone give this man a hug.
