Tidy reviving another classic series, this time with disco-inspired hard house sounds for those warm-up sets for harder floors, featuring familiar vocals and funky grooves.
Wow, this just tears me apart. Superb, stunning rhymes pitched perfectly between intensity and nonchalant abstraction from Confucious, amazing droney production from Keor Meteor. 'Original' is just one of the many highlights from Conf's debut album 'The Highest Order' that isn't just one of the greatest things YNR have ever given us (and they've given us alot of great great things), but one of the UK musical debuts of the year full stop. Get this, get on the album and drink deep from this man's wily mysticism. Future star.
Inertia — a middle-of-the-last-decade John O’Callaghan/Neal Scarborough project — put out a few very commendable tracks. Here, Indecent Noise and Liam Wilson set about a nip, tuck & re-release work-over on ‘The Chamber’. Less tough than you might expect, Indecent Noise's version does pay plenty of ear service to the zeal-laden riff. Even closer to the bull's-eye, the currently extremely busy Mr. Wilson’s remix is beefier about the drums, with a pleasing sideline in squiggly, squally acid.
Karlovak chaps Top Hat & Art Alfie are at it again, busting out a pair of dirty disco devastators that simply won't quit. Karlsson's dub is totally irresistible.
