Review: After several successful releases together, UK soulful house stalwart Sean McCabe returns to ZR, this time for a remix/mix album. We handed over the keys to the vaults of Z Records parts and let him run wild in his underpants. The album features 6 new exclusive McCabe remixes - Monique Bingham, Blackbyrds, The Sunburst Band and Soul Dharma, plus Sean's interpretation of an unreleased Akabu song Time Line". That's all alongside many of Sean's classic remixes, plus his personal favourites from the extensive ZR catalog and a DJ mix.
Review: The Dub Junction team most definitely know how to pull together a top quality reggae release in 2021, with this latest collection being the most recent in a run of top quality creations. Vibronics & Parvez team up for this one, with 'Healing Of The Nation' being the title track. What a creation this one is, paying homage to original steppers sound with a marching dubwise roller, combining catchy vocal toasting with intricate drumwork and booming basslines for good measure. Next, Bim One production arrives for a tidy remix edition of the track, stripping the instrumental for an even more groovy experience, before jumping into dub mixes for both of the above versions. It's a tidy collection, perfect for summer!
Review: Calling all DJs and getaway drivers alike! Prolific groove wizard Zero T continues his rich vein of form with 'Off Broadway' and there's a strong twang of 70s New York underworld to a few of the tracks. 'Drama' set the scene with little jazzy echoes and a groove grubbier than Giuliani. It's backed by plenty more dramatic moments; 'You're The One' is a sultry lesson in restraint, 'Something Got Me' tickles the 4 Hero spot with its slinky double bassline and dubby beat effects, 'She Moves' is pure summertime spring while 'This Condition' is a whirling cosmic dervish. And that's not even the whole EP. What happens 'Off Broadway' stays 'Off Broadway.'
