Review: Featurecast has been dabbling in groove and funk for quite a while now. Matter of fact, in his own words he has been on a mission to "funk his way across the globe with his own brand of.. mid-tempo Breaks, Hip-Hop, Funk, D&B and downright dirty Bass together in his own remarkable way". The Shout It Out LP comes courtesy of the UK's funkiest dance label Jalapeno. Highlights include the hip-hop/heavy metal crossover of "Shout It Out" featuring Illvis Freshly's killer rhyming, the electro infused breaks of "No One Left" featuring Greg Blackman's soulful vocals and the funky block rocking beats of "What You Want" featuring the mad skills of Pugs Atomz, Wes Restless & Ill Legit.
Review: Featurecast's Shout It Out LP came out one year ago almost to the day, so it was a surprise when this nifty remix compilation landed on our charts this morning! But, this is dance music, and the only rule is that there are no rules. Funnily enough, this is a rule that runs true even in terms of the sounds put together right here, and there's a few too many of them for us to categorise the EP under one genre banner. To give you a taste of the content, Ahee's remix of "Move" is a cut-up technoid bullet with gnarly injections of menacing wobble bass, whereas Inapt's grizzly take on "999" gives the term 'bassline house' an innovative new meaning, and Dub:ra's version of "Take It Down" steps into the darker and more unexpected world of electro-house, served up through a contemporary EDM filter.
