At just a year old Reload is a baby every sense of the word, but if this release is anything to go by it won't be long before this Leeds based imprint are playing with the big boys. This extra long EP from High Impact & Objective is eclectic and balanced we've certainly got our eyes peeled. 'Cat Inna Bag' is a nostalgic, happy mix of old Zinc and Shy FX, it had us reaching for our good old Jungle Massive compilation. 'TG's On A Friday' flips the script completely, bringing us into deep, windy tech soundscape. 'Photoshoot' merging crisp breaks with tap glass and a squidgy blobs of sub. 'Blu' is our favourite track of the EP bringing the heartfelt liquid vibes, with rolling breaks, a sparkling piano, and dreamy sci-fi lasers. 'Grandma's Funk' is the only collaborative track on the release and, it's sharp and quick with organic musical drums, guitars and clicks, so much fun to be had with this one. 'Bean Spillage' is a delicate roller with gritty, industrial scrapes but an eerie sense of psychotic calm. 'Haunted' finishes us off with a mutated half-time beat.
Middlesbrough murk maestro L3mmy Dubz continues his rich vein of wonky form on Reload with this full-strength five tracker. Tripped out funk comes in generous helpings on the likes of "Jupiter" and "Heat Ray" where the strange glitches and off-beat fills create momentum. Sheer sci-fi drama is conjured on the paranoid arpeggiated "Killer Bite" and soaring heat-seeker "Empire" while the riff on "Attention" buzzes and rattles with unforgettable high end friction. Powerful sounds from a fast-rising future star.
