Review: It was 4 years ago when Scour Records happened upon the phenomenon in waiting three-piece Captain Flatcap, playing to two men and a dog in some best-forgotten dive. Now its 2016 and it's different story indeed, the world is beginning to be seduced by the madcap fusion of styles that Chris, Tom and Matt uniquely provide. Now here is their eponymous album to take things to the next level. There are 10 tracks to enjoy; our favourites include the melodic dubstep-meets-ye-olde-flute music of "Awakening", the pulsating medieval trance of "Sergei's Journey" and the DnB mayhem of closer "Are You Me?".

Swinggae (feat Mr Switch & Cab Canavaral - Free Bonus Track) - (4:39) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Extra Medium is a producer equally known for his iconic moustache as much as his unique skill in turning 20s and 30s obscurities into bass heavy monsters. Ever one for generous notions of sizing, here he gives us five new sizzlers. From the raw-blues-meets-menacing-electro-thump of "Blues Boogie Bass", to the gentle acoustic breeze of "Lazy Bones" via the buzzsaw-Charleston of "Go Away". 4 times World DMC Champion Mr Switch and horn man Cab Canavaral both appear on the Jazz Age-stepper "Size Up" and the dubsteppy "Swinggae".

Review: Electro-swing. Done to death right? Wrong! Bristol's Extra Medium almost uniquely takes samples of similar 1920s and '30s jazz age ditties that everybody does but fuses them with a very British bass sound. Here we get served five sizzling jams to loose or s**t to. Highlights include the antique Mediterranean grooves of "Beatnik Boogie", brought up to date with some killer UK bass attitude, the thumping staccato wobble of "Stop The Moon" and the accelerated sing-along garagey break-step of "Troublesome".

J&B - (5:16) 172 BPM
Review: Although they've been dabbling with releases on the bassier and glitchy side of things of late, for their newest signing Scour are on an electro-swing tip. However, the Groove Gigolos EP doesn't tackle the genre in a straight up manner, opting instead for a wider interpretation of the style. "Reflections" takes a familiar Charleston-style melody and fuses it with chuggy bass and staccato beats. "Can't Hold Back" again takes vintage samples and marries 'em to tough breakbeats sprinkled with some MC vocals. The style hopping continues further with even some dobby reggaeton ("Swing Mi Food") and even D&B soul ("J&B").

Stampede - (4:59) 122 BPM
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!

Listen - (3:26) 123 BPM
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.
