Celebrating two of the most popular genres of recent times, compilation kings Straight Up! add to their Dubstep vs Trap series with the third album in less than a year. 20 tracks in total, there are enough saw tooth bass tears and smouldering 808 grooves to power a small town for a year. Highlights include the laser bass rifle and icy arpeggio on Kairo Kingdom's "Bounce", the unfettered euphoria of Rob Gasser's "The Exit" and the outright savagery of Ming & Moxiie & Static Link's supreme savagery on "Block Party". The list goes on - this is essential for lovers of both dubstep and trap.
The Straight Up trawler has sailed into the choppy breakbeat seas and, once again, caught a fine catch. 26 tracks, in total, each one reflecting a different flavour of the genre, this could be one of the label's finest fishing sessions to date. Ranging from the classic, sneering Botchit-style tears of "Da Dogz" and BreaksMafia's super-rude take on Dave London's classic "Black Disc" to the more contemporary trance-tinged "As Ice" and the filmic spine-shuddering rushes of "Vertigo", Straight Up have ensured no breakbeat fan has been ignored during the making of this extensive album. Epic.
