Review: Miami imprint Devine Disorder delivers the fourth instalment of its One Nation series, with the original artists from the electro imprint rubbing shoulders with the new generation. Supreme Ja's "Outer Space" is a killer slab of electro funk, replete with, hip-hop scratches and robotic vocal samples. Dark Vector continues in this vein as he drops the dark bass-led "Desperta", which is also full of robot vocals. Dwellz' take on electro funk is more nuanced, as the stripped back, spaced out "Another Time" demonstrates. The new school also impress, with Lloyd Stellar adding some warbling bass to "Space-A-Delic" and The Droid opting for a more industrial direction on the bruising drums of "Allies".
Review: Groove Skool are back with the second edition of their 'Nu Grooves' EP series and we can confirm that is truly jam packed with incredible rhythms and summer slammers. As far as large scale garage projects go, it's been a long time since we heard a project this size boast such consistency start to finish, with tracks such as 'Sylvester's Groove' slapping you with nostalgic bliss and 'Crown Joule' providing a more subtle field of play. There's something for everyone for certain, with other highlights including the impeccable 'So We Sing' featuring Ilya, the super bouncy 'Something' in collaboration with Duncan Powell and of course 'My Hurt Goes On' with the awesome Keith Boon, working them into a classic UKG melody. Fantastic stuff!
