Review: One of the biggest tunes of the last six months just got a whole load bigger. Chrissy Chris and Wide Awake's "Real" enjoys a whole series of facelifts right here: Killer Hertz inject it with a truck load of horse power and dancefloor grit, Sammy Porter brings Wide Awake's vocals to soulful new levels with a funky deep house vibe with just a twist of UKG in the melting pot while Wonder K gives everything a maximum boost in a chunky-assed fidget-meets-future-house style. With an added acoustic original, for the more chill moments in your life, is the cherry on top of the cake. Feel the realness.
Review: A little-known fact about Crissy Criss is that he's jungle legend Kenny Ken's stepson, which is an interesting titbit, especially considering how different Criss' debut album - War On Silence - is from his stepdad's stylistic direction. The LP is very much aimed at the dancefloor, it's full of huge synths and basses, as well as jump-up influence in the form of Upgrade. 'Rumble' featuring Heist is the perfect exemplification and the jump-up influence is apparent here as well, the tune's distorted energy and immense force reminiscent of Heist's own productions. A top LP from a top producer.
