Review: The Seven Four Two team are known for their creative dives into the numerous different realms that breakbeat covers, with today's drop from Acid Man being another fantastic addition to their already impressive catalogue. We begin with the super acidic bass rolls and nostalgic breaksy drum sampling of 'Are You Ready', followed by the more engulfing sub bass structures and delicate rhythms of 'Network'. To follow, we are taken to cloud nine with the airy pad textures and industrial breakbeat slicing of 'The Manifesto', before those tasty acidic textures make their way to the forefront again with when hell of a closer in 'Frequency Modulation'.
Review: Acid Man! In a way similarly done by DJ Sotofett back in the Sex Tags days, Acid Man turns in a banging, cut up and funky drummer amen break loving antic to house music. With this number slightly spiffed up in a sleek and industrial club sheen, it makes for a new and club tempo variation to a classic house sound that's not lo-fi but...Acid Man!
Review: "Another Day" another banger... Northern bass fusionistas Future Wildstyle return with another chop-slapping delight laden with bass weight. What begins as a swampy, toxic halftime hurter quickly switches up with frazzled break rolls for a junglised hybrid. Remix-wise fellow Sheffield artist Motional brings a high pressure Criticalesque steppy funk to the proceedings. Trust us, you'll be rinsing this for days on end.
Review: Sheffield bass pranksters Future Wildstyle are back on Seven Four Two with yet more quality bass aesthetics, all primed and ready for dance floor domination. The lead tune, Check Baby Check, couldn't be from anywhere but Sheffield, launching a toxic bassline over broken, repetitive vocal samples that must be plaid loud and destructive! "Piano Days", as the name suggests, is more soulful in style and execution, bringing in elements of old-school UK raving into the mix, not to mention some delightfully placed breaks to launch the tune into hyper-space. Top work from the boys..!
Review: From Doncaster to Sheffield, the Future Wildstyle pair dominate the bass scene and, thanks to releases like the present "Burning Up" for Seven Four Two, they've made quite a name for themselves. While this is tagged as breakbeat, this one-track anthem EP has the soul of house very much running through its DNA, particularly thanks to one noticeable sample which is lifted and propelled to new dimensions thanks to the help of some absolutely killer percussion work. Half way between breaks and 4/4, this is the sort of tune that will get ANY dancefloor moving. BAD!
Review: Bass=Win alumni Future Wildstyle continue to venture deeper into the bass cosmos with this widescreen slab of gully variation. "Oh My Days" is a swaggering, loose-drummed toxic bass jam for the halftime heads that's carried by a cool sci-fi riff. "Big N Brassy" is straight out of the book of Fracture - steppy, rolling, hybrid jungle technoid business, this isn't to be treated lightly!
