Review: Essex boy EGO TRIPPIN is jump up's man of the moment he's tracks have been destroying floors for a hot sec and now he's unleashing those VIP's we've been hearing for months. As with all VIPs the tracks stay true to originals with tiny tweaks. 'Filthy Criminals' see's extra layers added to the main melody at different pitches, bringing new textures to the track, and the odd little skip giving illusions of double drops. While 'Two Types' echoes and prolongs, if you're a fan of the first two this is a no brainer.
Review: Hi Def are one of the most prolific jump-up labels around. We regularly feature their releases and they almost always smash it out of the park, this time being no different. Access All Areas is a fiery EP, featuring Ego Trippin, Filthy Habits and more, that epitomizes the type of jump-up, but also slightly different flavours as well, that, in more ways than one, has defined D&B over the past couple of years - no-nonsense, uncompromising and proudly nonchalant about what you think. It's just pure attitude, dancefloor-based music at its best and music that simply does what it wants, there's no pretentiousness or image-orientated concerns - it's just D&B. Big, big tunes.
