Review: Exclusive - and free - to Junodownload, we're very proud to host this incendiary EP from Southpoint as they join us for a full takeover showcase. Having established a spotless reputation in bass circles as they fuse the tendrils of all the genres that matter; grime, UKG, bass and all creative spaces in between. This EP is yet another perfect snapshot of where they're at: Ceezus brings some conscious thought into the lyrical danger of the brilliantly titled "Juno", ChemistRNS cooks up a sassy UKG throwback with "Ciara" while James Mannion maintains the classical two-step and UKG vibes with a harmonic, pranged out riff. It's down to Mofaux to close the deal with "What's Going On" with a toxic brew of swinging kicks, loose amen fills and gangster voices. Southpoint? On point. There's a reason the likes of Marcus Nasty, DJ Cartier and Dappa rate the label as one of the best new imprints in the game right now.
Review: Having carved out a sturdy reputation for classily executed deep house, Francis Inferno Orchestra returns to Let's Play House to offer last year's "Hezbollah" up to the reliable but somewhat enigmatic Carter Brothers. The original track gets looped up and stretched out in a restrained yet unrelenting cycle of addictive piano chords and pattering disco drums, shot through with a hint of psychedelia for good measure. Aside from that immersive DJ friendly cut, there are three locked grooves of varying intensity to choose from, ranging from a goofy techno throwdown to an eerie pad loop if you want to add a little spice to your mix.
