Charge Recordings, one of the all-time great labels, are celebrating their 25th anniversary, and in so doing are revisiting some of Mampi Swift's best tracks. The label boss has been responsible for some corkers over the years, and we can imagine that narrowing it down was a tough job to say the least. But, of course, his 2013 remix of 'I Don't Need A Reason' made the cut; who can forget the first time they heard that brass-tinted horn bellow out of Dizzee's Rascal's menacing, iconic vocal lines. The old school vibes continue across the rest of the release, as Charge's specific take on dancefloor skips all the over engineered hype of the present and sticks to the basics that make this genre what it is: rough, vibrant drums and swelling basslines that puff your chest out. 'Twisted' is especially great, with a long introduction that keeps you hanging on every bar, the climax when it comes as satisfying as anything. Unreal.
