Review: Roller King and all-round G Bladerunner returns on his own Hi Resolution imprint with four more fat slammers. "Power Up" is as close to neuro as you'll find the London artist. All rasping and waspish, it's a high voltage scenario from the slippery breaks to the sinewy reese. "The Crazy Dragon" flips the coin for a riffier jam where the bassline provides a strong melodic bullishness to the blend. "Electric Dreams" is the naughtiest monster of the set with its savage distorted reverse bass warps and wry 2000s-era BC stabs. Last but not least "Bulldozer" brings the curtains down with more of a junglised break and a no-nonsense 1.21 gigawatt bass sizzle. Power moves by name, killer moves by nature.
Review: Roller King and all round jungle don, Bladerunner returns to his Hi Resolution imprint with four more blinding slices of timelessness. "Forever" sets the pace with the classic rolling breaks and psychedelic synth tendrils wafting through the soundscape, "Sub Lo" strips things right back to the bare bones with clapping snares and a grainy one-note bass wobbles while "High Pressure" scorches with a high voltage space-bound bassline and a heads-down tunnelling groove. Finally "Turbo Boost" closes the EP with a vibe that more than lives up to its name... Absolutely savage. Bladerunner doesn't mess around mate.
Review: It's been a year since he last took us on a Hi Res romp but Bladerunner is back on his own label and kicking major jacksy as usual. Four tracks full and not a dry eye in sight, each cut really brings out the Dread alumni's chainsaw bass abilities. "Technological" buzzes with a vicious electrical aesthetic to the bass, "Rolling Fire" is a roaring rip in the space time continuum with classical and future sounds both fusing at 100000mph, "Don't Stop" is nothing short of a jugular slicer while "Wild West" takes us back to the rooting tooting old school with a loose drum swag and much more sinister shadowy bass texture. Full res, high res, Bladerunner for prez.
Review: Few artists - if any - possess the jungle authenticity and all round gully class of Bladerunner. Consistently rolling out timeless treats that remind us how futuristic D&B will always sound in the right hands, here we find him returning to his burgeoning label Hi Resolution with two more straight-up bangers. "Fire From The Sky" twists up about four different bass textures and pours them over you one by one. "Interceptor", meanwhile, is all about the action amens and laser-style bass licks that could melt your skin from 20 paces. Handle with caution.
Review: Oh gosh! Bladerunner touches down with an epic six-track collection on his own Hi Resolution. Running his gully gamut from emotional to electrical to energetical, everything you could possibly need from a Bladerunner EP is right here... The subtle euphoria and piano-touched emotion of "All My Love", the total skin melting sizzles and bassline burns of "Intensity" and the techno-like insistency and dynamism of "Breathe" are just three of many highlights here.
Review: Bladerunner - one of the members of 2018's breakout act Kings of the Rollers - is back on his very own Hi Resolution imprint for a slammer of a four-tracker. His wicked single 'Rolling Fire' is given the VIP treatment in spectacular fashion with a modulating, expansive bass that just flows and flows. The title track is another absolute hitter, those classic Bladerunner head-nodding drums underpinning a viciously long bassline that curls round to hit you in the face. 'Driving Force' is more bass excellence except its drawn out over a stuttering jungle break, while 'Energy Weapon' is exactly that, a reverberating mash of low-frequency energy - what a weapon. Bladerunner is back.
Review: What a combo: roller king Bladerunner co-signs Newcastle newcomer Nectax with these two crucial collabos on his label Hi Resolution. Both tracks flexing both individual artists sounds, there's a big sweeping sci-fi edge to the basslines; "The Fall" is a little deeper with its soulful vocal, bashy fills and dynamic drops into soaring metallic bass tones while "Badlands" doesn't just blow the doors off, it fells the trees, treats the wood, builds the doors then blows them off again. Savagery of the high collabo order. If Nectax isn't on your radar yet, he ruddy well should be now. Badness.
