Review: Originally appearing as a 'cowbell frenzy' on the Rebel Bass LP, "Get Low" now re-emerges remixed to high heaven. It was always a standout on the Stanton Warriors' album, but now it really shines in a variety of styles. Treasure Fingers goes for smooth and deep retro house, whilst The Vanguard Project's furious DnB version is hauntingly evocative. Elsewhere UFO shamelessly go for a commercial trap (with some Robin S) floor filling version and Infrakt deliver some merciless kick drums in a harder ghetto bass styleee.
Review: Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley's partnership is one of the most consistent and reliable in bass music. 18 years and still delivering pristine low-end grooves, Rebel Bass summarises their current command of garage, house, breakbeat and beyond; from the down-pitched vocal coating of "Loving Me Wrong" to the classic house evangelism of "Hoping" by way of the cowbell frenzy of "Get Low" and the slower, organic "Speakers Moving", while each cut is individually primed for late night floor-flattening sassiness the track arrangement also works perfectly as a deliciously rolling album. Their strongest, slickest body of work to date. Rebellious with a cause.
