Review: As far as labels go, there aren't many who have been floating around the bass music scene for as long as Future Follower Records. It seems that they have a point to prove here as they unveil an absolute goliath of a project, featuring fifty stunning original creations, packing a perfectly processed punch to round out 2019. The project as a whole finds itself landing between bass, breaks and garage, with some incredibly catchy productions involved, including Dephex's warbling 'Warfare', the super metallic shuffles inside the Bean VIP mix of 9TRANE's 'Heard Me' and the bass blasts of DubReaper's 'Ask Me'. There is something for everyone on this massive selection, giving the Future Follower camp a perfect send off to 2019.
Review: Allow the likes of Templeton Peck & EFJ, Teebone and Maximum Style to deliver a most refined selection of pure garage class. Taking in ballroom sounds of club, R&B and house, all the hallmarks of this undeniable sound come together across a whopping 26-tracks. And leafing through you'll find touches of jazz, dub and vocoders in TP & EFJs "Fever" - with their Dream Team dubplate mix to "Don't Stop" going all the way with one of the most luscious basslines you'll hear this side of the genre. Skippier, stripped and pitching effects are on show in Teebone & Thomas Jules Scott's "Everytime I Think Of You (Lost Files mix 2)", with singer JB Rose featuring in an assortment of Maximum Style numbers be they full in full in "Admit To Luv" to something more cut up in 'Wake Up".
