Review: Quite who Mr Mongoose is, we haven't the foggiest. But do we care? Not in the slightest. We haven't got time to care! Not while we're chowing down on the five mighty genre-smashing bangers that soundtrack his fantastic weekend. While all cuts are pretty darned shiny, the jewel in the crown has to be Dillon Francis and Doctor P's "Music Is Dead". A slow, sludgy, downtempo electro bass work out, it's like they've eaten all of Daft Punk's albums, drunk several bottles of strong spirits and battered their computers on each other's heads until they're happy with the outcome. Or something. Another highlight, that rolls with similar, slow-mo funkery, is Figure's "What More Do You Need?", a spitting, snarling, growling beast, it's proof tempos don't need to be a hundred miles an hour for things to truly bang.
Review: This single has been getting much love from big names including Laurent Garnier and Aquasky. With Amen breaks abound in Figures Of Eighty's ominous rave epic "The Delicate", it's easy to see why too. However if you felt real end of the world vibes there, wait til you hear My Selecta's "Acid Blip"! A raging, raw slice of monged-out basement bass - distorted and messy, just like all the best parties.
