A sumptuously crafted slice of deepness from Hernan Cattaneo’s label. Mesmerising melodic elements, and a classic groove that really rocks things along. Brace for goosebumps in the breakdown.
Prolific London duo Radiokillaz ramp up the old skool flavours once again here, throwing junglistic breakbeats, dystopian synthwork, hardcore stabs and snatches of pitched-up ragga vocal over heavy kicks and snares for a track that's full of dubwise rave energy. On the remix, Pressa adds clipped keys and heavily-delayed brass stabs, while Galvatron grabs an Amen and furiously freewheels for a reworking that heads into full-on 170bpm d&b territory.
London badman Deekline showed us his knack for deep, euphoric breakbeats on the radio-friendly club banger 'Deepa' six months back. Now he's dipped into his studio hard drive for more of the same with 'Got to Believe', which lands with an electrifying female vocal refrain, lilting arpeggios, ravey pads and warm Reese sub, before dropping into a bass-fuelled Hannah Wants-style groove. It's the pick of his new five-track 'Heartbreak EP', which also offers up a quartet of tasty house/bass outings for the four-to-the-floor brigade.
From the get go, ‘Coax’ feels like the sound of Graze resetting all the machine defaults after their 'Edges' album dropped back in January. A different beast altogether, there’s a tougher more actual assault to it; from the very temperament of the drums to the timbre of the lead line it feels like it all has a specific purpose. If people overlooked Graze before, coming with a sound such as this certainly makes them harder to ignore.
