Review: After a very impressive 2017, the Audio Addict collective are back with another heavyweight release package to kick off 2018 with a bang. After a fantastically well received release of DJ Hybrid and Haribo's heavyweight collaboration 'Raised In The Jungle', the Audio Addict imprint have put together a phenomenal selection of six official remixes. Our favourites have to be smooth subs of Swerve's rollers rework, the techy arrangement and vocal manipulation of My Selectas redesign and Drop Out's classic hip hop remix, complete with scratches and vocal breakdowns. This is a great start to the year for Hybrid's ever impressive imprint.
Review: Two and a half years deep into their dark star safari Sub-Liminal continue to shred up the dance with a crack team of heavy bass innovators. Bass riffs galore and aesthetics so unforgiving, every track is tailored for the most underground floor... The worming low-end mashery of Too Greezey's "Modulation", Leaf's oddball drum funk and melting trumpets on "Shoot Off", Warhead's brutal technoid mutations on "A'Gwarn" and Tyrant's absolutely annihilating "Nuclear Bomb" are just four of the 14 high level bangers on display here. There's nothing subliminal about the message on this one: not picking up on this is a criminal offence.
Review: Sub-liminal sleepers this one is for you... The UK label have just repurposed and repackaged some of their many successes on this epic 20 track compendium. Ranging from the white knuckle neuro pace of Fena's "Viral" to Dominator's gamechanging grumpy-bass twist on Agro's "Noise Complaint" via Dialogue's ultra-grot wobbler "If You Can't Beat 'Em", Tyrant's Nightflight-style jungle slap-about "Bomb", Agro's sinful stepper "Tank" and many more, this is a perfect snapshot of the label's breadth, weight and uncompromised sound so far. Riddim stinkers.
