UKG is back and better than ever. As a wave of new age garage producers emerge around the UK, artists such as MOAD have been championing the pack, pushing incredibly vibrant original 2 step beats. His latest single comes to us courtesy of Red Balloon Dubs and is an absolute corker. From start to finish this one is jam packed with funky energy and vocal panashe, all tied together with fabulously quirky drum patterns and syncopated aquatic samples. This one is definitely one for the dances!
Mind Of A Dragon quietly slips in another fine album here, this time through the Red Balloon Dubs imprint, and we finally have to say that this producer is underrated among the world of riding garage talents. Moreover, Keep Cracking On is a pure LP, with all its tunes working for each other rather than next to each other; subtle garage infusions grow and shrink with total balance, starting off with docile drum swings that slowly develop into jazzier, more melodic frameworks, and finally into veritable club steppers with a vintage frame of mind that still sounds fresh and unchallenged. Don't sleep!
