Review: Buckle up! Bristol duo Crash Party barge the shindig once again with this powerful piece of toxic bass dancehall halftime. Heaving with filth and catchier than a sailor's shanty everything about "Nitty Gritty" is designed to super-charge your dance and thrust them to another level. Remix-wise Second Hand Audio flip the euphoria mode with some sizzling rising chords, Dave RMX gets his 110 on with glitched out undertones, Leygo & Toy Beats add a raw dancehall swing while DJ BiNGe throws down an absolutely savage drumstep rendition. Finally the Crashers conclude with a sweet skank via their firing jungle VIP. All killer versions; this gets to the nitty gritty of any situation.
Review: The breakbeat flavours are well and truly alive here as the Crash Party touches down on the popular Scour imprint for a four track shell out. We begin the journey on the twisted bass synths and uplifting horn scatters of the title track 'Residential Area', before relaxing the high energy tone a tad on the more laid back styles of 'Funk Groove'. To follow, 'Throw Your Hands', which is a fidgety scratch party, laced with hardcore vocal samples and bouncy piano leads, before finishing up the selection on the more 4x4 inspired drum work and patois vocal finesse of 'Lock It Off'.
