Bruk is flying the flag of the UK's supremely confident jump-up scene with this excellent four-tracker over on Sub:stance Recordings, his tendency to isolate the key elements and focus on the basics being done with absolute effect. Manual features on the absurdly good 'Stand Up Tall', which packs murderous funk into its choppy arrangement, a collection of energy which coils like a loaded spring and then releases with aplomb. 'Say My Name' samples Destiny's Child's classic pop record but flips it into a devastatingly heavy collection of potent stabs and kicks. The second half of the record continues in the same vein and the results are predictably top class.
