A seriously stylish first track sees Cutworks break out the bass for an elegant start to this double-headed release. Bursting with whomping bassy fruitiness underneath gorgeous layers of rolling beats and intriguing vocals (cut and severely pitch-shifted from "Oops (Oh My)" by Tweet/Missy Elliott if we're not mistaken), it's the perfect tune to whip crowds into a hard-stomping frenzy. "Deep Inside" begins on beautiful form and continues into further depths of stunning double bass and live instrumentation all tied together by crisply captivating production. When Roygreen and Protone get together, it's magic. Don't miss out.
From Russia with love, Impish tells us all to be quiet so he can whisper his own sweet nothings into our ears in the form of his debut album Hush. If you've been listening on vinyl or CD then he's been whispering these sugary murmurs for several months. Now fresh to digital, they sound just as tantalising from the opening soulful vocal workout "Can't Feel" to the last sultry calls from Julia Marks on the closer "Solid". Highlights include the Intalex-nodding "Let Me" (with Zero T), the jazz haze of "That's Right" and the raw jungle slammage of "Shadows". A highly accomplished debut. Make some noise.
