Liondub International have greeted the unrepentant winter chills with their brand new $treet $eries, which they say gives rise to a host of new styles and names. Taking a look at this first release, it's going to be a ride and a half. Leicester-based Hoogs has travelled the spectrum of jungle, ragga, reggae and dancehall to get where he is now, and this release shows his diversity to full effect. From the choppy beats of opener "Murda", through jump-up stabs and samples of "Outcast" and hectic roller "Mountain People", there's no doubt he loves the heavier things in life. Picking up the pace once again in "Pussy", he experiments with percussion and bass with a seriously tweaked low-end and frenetic beats ending up on final track "Haunted", a treacherous stepper with a drop fit to crumble the mightiest soundsystems. A series to watch.
