The term ‘Deep House’ gets used a lot these days much to the chagrin of purists, this new release from Skeleton Army is undoubtedly true Deep House but you don’t need to be a purist to enjoy these 2 tracks rich in melodys and captivating sounds, this is after all John Morrow, former member of the seminal production trio known as Foul Play and you can still hear elements of that ethereal sound in both ‘Bottleneck’ which incorporates breakbeat sections into a 4×4 beat and bleepy pads that pull you in to the groove. ‘Morning Glory’ kicks off with a warm reese bass and percussion building into a driving late night roller, this is music that transcends genres, timeless sounds that can be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates quality sounds

Fans of Garage, UKG & Breakbeat garage are in for a treat with this brand new EP from Riddler Records, for the soul/R&B infused smooth rolling UKG heads there’s Phonetix ‘Ain’t Right’, for fans of classic 4×4 garage, Craig Scott’s ‘I Need Your Love’ is THE ONE!!! We get some old skool Spooney/Matt Lamont stlye dubby vibes with the excellent Carpainter ‘Say The Word’ and then my personal pick from a must have EP is the tongue in cheek bass heavy Jean Claude Van Damme sampling ‘DaMMe Cold’ by Impact Productions recalling my favourite sub genre of the UKG scene harking back to the 90s, the days of ‘Dooms Night’, ‘I Don’t Smoke’ & ’138 Trek’ Classy stuff from Riddler Records!!!
The first of 2 release to be posted here today on Riddler Records, this is soulful UKG at its very best, taking you back to the days of the late 90′s when Spooney, Matt ‘Tuff Jam’ Lamont & Grant Nelson would spin anthems the like of this must have tune, the original being a classy slice of Garage, the remixes are equally good, there’s a contemporary Deep House mix, a summery skipping UKG mix by Final Cutt Collective, my favourite, the ‘RiPped Up’ speed garage mix and even a Liquid DnB version, you just can’t go wrong with this!!!!! Undoubtedly one of the best releases of the current UKG revival, absolutely essential!!!
The second taster for Toronto Is Broken’s imminent ‘Section Nine’ LP flips the switch with a superbly constructed and utterly filthy slice of Glitch Hop, baton down those hatches, head for the nearest bunker because this is a bass explosion of 50 megaton proportions!!!!
