Review: Hot on the heels of "Outta My Head / Give Me Something" the Haggis comeback is in full effect as they drop another sure-fire brass-blasting blunderbuss: "Take It Back" features slippery lyricism of writer/comedian/MC extraordinaire Doc Brown alongside their signature tight groove and rolling sense of playful funk. Loaded with an instrumental on the B, this one is guaranteed to sizzle your summer.
Review: With previous releases on Internasjonal, Dirt Crew, Mirau and Permanent Vacation to his name, Neil 'Mano Le Tough' Mannion is clearly a producer on the rise. Here he brings his melody-driven, musically layered take on deep house to Buzzin' Fly, a label that has forged its reputation on promoting similarly melodic fodder. "Stories" is delightful, a kind of gently undulating deep house fairytale that quietly rises and falls over seven spellbinding minutes. "Take It Back" and "From The Start" offer more straight-up dancefloor potential whilst retaining a similar level of inventiveness (the later, for example, features a great guitar breakdown).
Review: Unique party flavours abound as Bristow and Silver reconnect from their "My Life" EP earlier this year. The pair complement each other well, with Bristow's crafty sample snatching and Silver's slick-tongue UK rhyme vibes an ideal match as the two dig deeper and deeper into the party spirit. From the swing-time jazz horns of "You Don't Know" to the Benny's philosophical positivity on "Don't Take It Serious" via the title track's instant shindig shout-out, the pair conjure a unique spirit between them. Imagine if Ugly Duckling were founded in Peckham and you're not far off. Lively vibes.
