Waved Off The Spirits (feat Jimmy Wilson) - (4:23) 175 BPM
Review: Dutta & Flexxa: Two bass mercenaries collide for two savage sermons in jump-up. "Facts Of Life" chirps like a bird and stings like a bee thanks to its musical sample and gutter-chomping bassline. "Waved Off The Spirits", meanwhile, is a laser-blazing bass cut that leaves no sonic stone unturned while Jimmy Wilson adds a little spoken word mysticism in the background. Get acquainted.
Review: Grab a bandage, pack a plaster, big up the first aid kit massive: Toronto's Handcutz steps up to SYBA with two gruesome jump-up buzzers. "Damien" (with Bristol badman Krusty) is a savage, gritty body slam with all the energy of a fully-charged cyborg army while "Cyclops" lollops along firing sporadic laser blasts in every direction it cares to. Unashamedly ugly... The way things should be.
Review: Two strong originals command two killer remixes: Shake Your Bass Audio bossmen head to Paris once again and pass on the parts to two of their most distinctive tracks to Beastmode duo Veak. Fresh from its recent VIP-stripes, last summer's "Kung Fu" gets more of a rolling drum technique while "Insanity" is given a really cool up-twist as the riff is reversed and doubled up to make a whole new melody. Exemplary remixes.
Review: Touch your head and feel your hair for the last time; for the moment you press play you hair will be singed to the very scalp. Such is the power of this Belgian duo. Both tracks bear resonance to their titles; "Monster" is a shoe-throwing assault into a chaotic bass battle as twisted lead lines fly in from nowhere, somewhere and everywhere. "Meteorite" also lives up to its name as the bass takes on an interstellar edge, hurtling closer and closer towards you with alien menace. You may want to check your pants too.
Jay D - "Creeping Unknown" (Krusty remix) - (4:23) 175 BPM
Item 9 - (4:01) 175 BPM
Wobbs - (4:23) 175 BPM
Krusty & The Person - "Girls & Money" - (4:23) 175 BPM
Review: No clowning around here, Krusty means business as he unfolds his biggest release wad before our very eyes. "Full Heart" flicks with space funk fissures at a deeper style to what the Bristol badsmith is usually known. His remix of "Creeping Unknown" is much more typical with its screeched-out Tyke-style riff while "Item 9" takes us down an even darker path with stabby downpitched bass hits and delusional vocal samples. Elsewhere "Wobbs" licks up with a little humour and sharp amen shards on the fills and "Girls & Money" ends the EP as you expect with such a title. Total trouble and just a smidgeon of murderation. Hearty on dudes.
