Radical DJ – Madman EP

Radical DJ - Madman EP

Fresh from one of the best Garage/House compilations, HIghly Swung Records present Radical DJ ‘Madman EP’

Radical DJspares no horses with the fast and intense rave inspired 140BPM slammer ‘Madman’, a squelchy and snappy blend of 90s rave, Mutant Bass and skankin’ UKG.

‘Mainstream’ takes a quirky vocal sample, no doubt from a thoughtful artist somewhere and lets this sample form the basis for a tasty Breaks/2 Step riddim with some really nice breakdowns and a purist 90s/00s Garage sound design that works on multiple levels. Definitely one that the oldskool Garage fans and DJs will love. Most definitely another first class release from one of the scene’s finest hubs for new talent, check it!!!

Digital Pilgrimz-Let Me Tell You

Digital Pilgrimz-Let Me Tell You

Digital Pilgrimz ‘Let Me Tell You’, one of the most diverse Bass music releases you will hear in 2017, out now on Future Follower Recs…

Listening to Digital Pilgrimz ‘Let Me Tell You’and the four remixes included, I’m reminded of my own personal musical tastes timeline as I grew up in the 90s. Putting aside the cheesy pop dance music I listened to as a pre teen, it began with breakbeat hardcore/jungle tekno followed by house/trance/techno, garage and jungle/DnB.

‘Let Me Tell You’ in its original form is a skippy bass/2 step hybrid with vocals from Helena May that hints at the 90’s while staring firmly forward into the future.

Lamont Dex does another of his first class 98′ style speed garage jobs on the original with nice phat beats and a quintessential speed garage bassline, big business!!!

Gribzy turns in a tough tech bass rerub in similiar fashion to his recent EP on Country Club Disco.

Strange Rollers goes on a deep voyage of dubby sounds and electro style drums with interludes of intelligent jungle breakage.

Lastly, History Of Hardcore label owners, Insane & Mind blend mid 90s Moving Shadow style sounds with some rolling 92′ ardcore to complete a truly unique package.

We’ve been long time fans of Future Follower Recs for years but we have to say this is one of the finest releases on the label to date, a 10/10 without a doubt!!!

On1 & Luke Anthony feat. Joy B – Higher

On1 & Luke Anthony feat. Joy B - Higher

Lush and somewhat spooky UKG from On1 & Luke Anthony on the ever excellent Ultra Bass imprint, With remixes from Lamont Dex and Boxhead, this one’s a winner all right!!!

On1 & Luke Anthony present the 2 Step/UKG diamond that is ‘Higher’ featuring the lovely vocals of Joy B. Ultra Bass have consistently proven that UKG/Garage is alive and well with every consecutive release and ‘Higher’ adheres to the label’s high standard in every way.

Not only do we get the smooth vocal Garage of the original but further remixes from Lamont Dex & Boxhead take ‘Higher’ in fresh and fun directions. Lamont Dex gives the track a Speed Garage rumble in the manner we have come to know and love from him. Boxhead brings out the dark subtleties of the original and fashions them into a dreamy and uplifting Future Garage rework. That’s another sparkling addition to a fantastic back catalogue of essential music. Stream and Pre-Order the EP via the link below.
