Review: Having already made fans out of Brodinski, Diplo, Boy 8-Bit and Drop The Lime with the warm yet wonky Chicago dub of debut single "Woman Like Me", Willy Joy sees an excellent team of producers jump on board the remix train for this follow-up release on Top Billin'. Flossradamus draws out some jacking energy and raved-up delirium on his mix, while Dillon Francis doesn't quite go into moombahton territory but still keeps things slow and punchy on his bassy revisit. Cousin Cole turns in an uncharacteristically tech-house mix that still thankfully carries that random edge that Top Billin' releases are famous for, while Flinch does wonders on his energetic 808 half-step journey.
Review: After 14 blinding releases, the Trouble & Bass crew have compiled the best of the bass for this collection of original releases from their epic series of gonzoid-electro bangers. From the snakey Dutch leads of Drop The Lime's "Doomsday Device" to the hardcore dubstep tweaks of "Days Go By" by Boogaloo Crew, this is a must-have for anyone who missed out on the earlier Champion releases. Rico Tubbs and Calvertron are to be found in typically ravey form on "Body Free", while Baobinga mixes nasty rap verses with bassline beats on "Make It Drop". With AC Slater, Mumdance, Samo Sound Boy, Marc Remillard and Zombies For Money also included, this is an essential collection of the finest bass beats out there.
Review: What a wicked way to end the year... Drop The Lime's label are celebrating six years in the business and their best year yet for releases. And they're not doing it by patting themselves on the back or re-hashing their best moments. No; they've paired up their favourite artists for some serious unique collabo freakery. Each one of these demands attention but the haunting house hip-hop of Deathface & Lil Internet, the stripped back n' sexy booty bass of Star Eyes & UFO and the cosmic bass wizardry of Zombies For Money & Slap In The Bass. A damned fine collection.
