Review: Prototype Recordings is Fabio's label and it was resurrected the other year in order to purvey beats of seriously large proportions. This single from Furniss is no exception and bloody hell it hits hard, with diving sub basses that curl up into explosive barrels of foghorn hugeness. The B-side - 'Offensive' is aptly named and it's this track which really gave us the bassface, and it's something you need to hear to understand. Top work.
Review: We love releases that are dusty and murky, the sort of releases you find stowed away on an old vinyl in your nan's loft but which turn out to be proper gems. Although this one is brand spannking new and so we doubt your gran will have a copy in her loft, it's appropriately wicked, stretching out as it does over two jungle inflected tunes. The A-side, 'The Assassinator', is grounded in a celestial soundscapes and punctuated through the middle by rustic snare hits and stabbing bass wobbles, making a really atmospheric number. The flip is more traditional jungle territory, with a stomping break that's permeated through with anarchic ambience. Wicked.
Review: Furniss isn't an artist we're intimately familiar with, which makes the strength of this single all the nicer, as he or she come right out of the blocks with a Benny L-esque construction of grating basses and urban-edged dancefloor orientation. The tunes are slightly scary in their unabashed approach to making the most jarring yet still wicked construction of sounds, it's properly industrial and that vibe drips from every corner of this release. 'Polizia' is the highlight for us: simple yet very effective.
Review: It's time for some more heavyweight drums flavour as we see Stompz touch down on the impressive Prototype Recordings Corporation imprint for a solid four track collection. We kick off with the wobby subs and naughty lead reeses of the title track 'Decked', which rolls perfectly into the sharpened evil leads of 'Demons'. To follow on, 'Eezo' comes forward with some super stylish snare processing coupled with haunted atmospherics and expertly crafted bass sounds. We then finish up in good form on 'Let Me Go', which runs wild with crazy synthesis and underworld energies, rounding it all up nicely.
