Review: A.M.C?s Titan imprint is tearing up the dance right now and Dub Motion is leading the charge. Following this summer?s danger-doublet ?Warning? and ?Mercury?, here come four brand new heaters and hurters: ?Fall To Pieces? surges with an electrified Ram-style reese bass, ?Off The Record? is a minimal skipper chiselled with a hardness usually associated with an Enei jam, ?Exodus? puts the Dub back into Dub Motion with stark skanks and distorted horn heaves that sound as if they?ve been kidnapped and bundled into a car boot while ?Skyfall? closes the show on an emotional, breezy flex, all filtered pads and sensuous vox. All corners explored and consequently smashed.
Review: Dub Motion is the type of not-so-newcomer everybody's happy to hear from. Fresh from a huge CYN release in 2014, he's joined Titan to bring a taste of his fluctuating influences and the results are stunning. Dropping into the warzone from the off, "Warning" sends stressy pads burning into the atmosphere like flares before battening down ready for the close-contact bassline and percussion to do their worst. Hunched and determined. That's the dance routine for this one. Despite the dark storms of "Warning", on the flip, "Mercury" is a flight of deep rolling effortlessness, showcasing a sensitive side nobody ever expected from this strong-willed producer.
Review: Spanish soldiers Maniatics made their debut on A.M.C's Titan this time last year with the massive "Rock This Place". They've since dented the label on its summer-slapping, deeper-digging "Surface" collection before rounding off the year with their biggest label adventure yet. "Big Market" flips all senses of time and space with its drums before hurling you into a scratchy sandpaper riff while "Script" flips itself with some deft theatrical and venomously metallic twists and turns. "Parker" is the trippiest track of the pack with its unique breathing rhythm textures and high voltage bassline while "Despacito" is pure neuro drama from its opening chimes to its closing growls. Complete with a VIP of their label debut, this is an incredible way for both Maniatics and Titan to sign out from their biggest years to date.
