Review: As one of the versatile producers currently creating music within the UK bass and garage scene, it's an absolute thrill to see him touch down on the well renowned Rare Supply imprint for a touch of UKG goodness. We kick off this one with a track entitled 'Don't You Know', which uses stunning airy vocal lines with super smooth subs to create a wicked ride. Next we are gifted the sumptuous breaks infused rolls of 'Tell Me What', along with the super vocal inputs of 'All I Want'. We then take a look at the title track 'Close 2 Me', which is a masterpiece in sub-manipulation and minimalistic drum work. Awesome stuff!
Review: With the exceptional re-emergence of garage in the UK over the last twelve to eighteen months, we are seeing people get more and more creative with it. Higgo is an artist who breathes creativity, holding such a unique sounding production style in his fingertips at all times. This brand new project with Rare Supply kicks off with the title track '95', a nostalgic skippy groove, driven by super bouncy drum and sub infusions. Next we land on the jazzy riffs and soulful harmonies of 'Meet Me In The Middle', before we finish up on our personal favourite 'Work', again driven forward by some immensely sidechained drum designs.
Review: So, as garage rages forward and claims back a lot of its forgotten fanbase, we are seeing labels such as Rare Supply set some serious pace, with a rapid release schedule and quality oozing out the sides of every drop. Their latest project sees ON1 get busy across two heated collaborations, the first one being the title track 'Dub', alongside the toast-ready vocal prowess of Shantie. On the flip side, we see him tag in another one of the UKG newschool in Kobe JT, who touches down with some nostalgic flavours in 'New Gen'. This release also comes complete with the instrumental mix of 'Dub'.
Review: The re-emergence of UKG continues to gain momentum as we bare witness to yet another fantastic selection here, this time arranged by Rare Supply and bearing the title 'Supply Drop, Vol. 1'. We kick off with a smooth and soulful collaboration between Higgo and Kyst Cortez entitled 'Same Way', followed by some super melodic explorations from man of the moment: Sammy Virji in 'Promise Me'. Next, we hear cracking originals from Dr. Oscillator with his wobbly roller 'Amnesia', Joedan with his nostalgic creation in 'That's Hot' and the return of the ever dependable Moony with the funky inspired rhythmic switches on 'Attica'. After that we see another fantastic return as Daze Prism unleashes his super groovy original 'Check', before Man Of Steel rounds up a phenomenal collection with the pleasing chord progressions and a jiggy drumwork of 'Crazy'.
