Review: Stanton Warriors have been on a mission to bring us the finest broken beat and heavy bass on Punks Music since 2001. Here the debut volume of the their new 'Punks Selection' series is curated by Mafia Kiss and focuses in 'on the deeper/stripped sounding side of the label's roster'. There is a whopping 22 track featured, as well as a one-hour DJ mix. Highlights include the urgent, haunted bounce of "The Oracle" by Leda Stray, the sultry, late night breakbeats of "K2" by Aloka and the scattershot ghetto beats of "Check Me Out" by Sly One.
Review: This year saw emergence of a new genre name, subject to much debate.. The likes of Tiesto, Hardwell and co pioneering a sound that lay smack bang in the middle of trance and house, named (somewhat annoyingly)'trouse'. High Contrast were one of the first to jump on the bandwagon and here present the 2nd Installment in their 'This Is' compilation. Bursting at the seems with cutting edge sounds from the likes of; Swen Weber, Marco V, Jerome Isma-Ae, Ben Preston, Marcel Woods and countless others. A mix of established names and fresh faced upcomers, with some ultra hot exclusives snuck in for good measure.. It's the bargain of the week and, dive on in!!
