Review: Veteran DJ duo Plump DJs recently delivered their big room anthem "Yes Yes" to unanimous approval. Now we get to revisit the banger via a new remix by none other than the mighty Hybrid Theory. Although the essence of the original is retained, HT swaps most of the tribal/baile drum rhythms for more of a wobble-heavy 4 x 4 workout. Stripped back and fresh, this anthem's success is now going to last all summer!
Review: Here we have the latest short sharp shock from veteran DJ act Plump DJs. Moving on from the retro electro of their previous missive, Iou One, this time around they are aiming straight for the big rooms, peak time. "Yes Yes" is a big, blunt party anthem, with "Hustler"-era Simian Mobile Disco vocal samples and beefy tribal/baile drum rhythms. Hold on to your hats folks the confetti cannon's gonna blow!
Review: You've probably heard this one about, its predecessor was a biggie and the VIP has been well sought after ever since it was the first dropped. Keeping the original vocal, and most of the track true to the original but you can almost feel Hybrid Theory seeping from each and every sound of this VIP. A clappy 4/4 background decorated with space invader style scratches, and to and fro bassline.
Review: Despite all the recent setbacks, London's stronger than ever right now and what better way to prove it than with the totally lit LDN Selection - a sizzling new collection compiled and mixed by the mighty Plump DJs for the Punks label? The set kicks off with the leftfield tropical trap of 1 "jungle" by Mace before embark on an electric journey over the course of 24 more tracks. More highlights include the insane hands-in-the-air stadium ghetto of Stanton Warriors' "Walking" and the crunchy bassline house of "Roll Easy" by Signal:Noize. All tracks are available both individually and woven into a cool one hour DJ mix. Best of both worlds, nuff said.
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.
