Review: Funky grooves and swanky drums and heavy bass, what more could you want from a new school breakbeat original eh? That's exactly what you are in store for here as Slynk and Mr Stabalina join forces with powerful aftershocks on their brand new weekend-ready original 'Keep The Party Jumping'. We are greeted with a barrage of bolshy drum punches, kickstarting the vibrant rhythms that lay within, and when layered with ferocious reese bass up-risings and catchy synth melodies, cause quite the ruckus in the dance!
Review: It's time to get into party mode as we see Spin Kringle make a highly anticipated appearance on Scour to showcase some of the smoothest breakbeat originals we have heard in quite some time. The project begins with 'Float', alongside Sam Klassik, an incredibly bouncy piece of turbofunk, filled with twisted melodic expression and grizzly synthesizer movement. The goofy chord structures of the title track 'Parade' follow, before more synth units are set to run wild over hard hitting drum punches in 'Turn Out'. Finally, the groove intensifies as 'Stampede' combines funky horn work with smooth 4x4 rhythms and a constantly evolving lead bassline. Awesome!
Review: Clich?s like 'melting pot' or 'smorgasbord' are chucked around way too freely in music reviews, but it's hard to describe the wide array of influences on display here any other way! 'Baller' is an Afro-jazz workout, albeit more 'Afro' than 'jazz', with something of a makossa-ish vibe about it. 'Schweet' itself, which follows, is a more straight-up homage to 70s funk and soul, but we're back in jazz (or more accurately swing) pastures for 'Les Frites', albeit here served up in Latin rather than Afro flava. The EP's then completed by 'Listen', another electro-swing cut with a ragtime kinda feel.
