Silverfox – Jack Da Planet

Silverfox - Jack Da Planet

Silverfox’s newest addition to FOX Pukka Kutz Records ‘Jack Da’ Planet’ pays homage to an 80’s Electro classic in furious funky Jackin’ House style!!!

‘Planet Rock’ has had it’s fair share of tributes in a multitude of genres but ‘Jack Da’ Planet’ brings a new dimension to this B Boy anthem for the ages. Heavy bouncing beats, scratch samples, a bit of Flava Flav and an overall funky thumpin’ vibe makes this tune hugely playable and no doubt hugely crowd pleasing. Get some of that funk!!!!

Clouded Judgement – Countdown EP

Clouded Judgement - Countdown EP

Swerve Digital weaponises your Friday with Clouded Judgement’s new ‘Countdown EP’ The London duo bring their A game with three versatile and highly appealing Tech House productions.

The duo that brought you the massive ‘Give Us An E’ back in 2014 have been riding a wave of notoriety that has taken them to labels like Simma Red, Data Transmission’s Shanghaied, Freakin909 and countless more.Near 40 somethings like this blogger will recognise elements of a 91′ hardcore tune in ‘Give Us An E’, namely Skin Up’s ‘Blockbuster’ This strain of 90’s rave, Hip Hop, House & techno is a mainstay of the countless fierce and up-tempo productions in Clouded Judgement’s back cat.

The Countdown EP displays the diversity in this duo’s repertoire starting with the title track, a kind of ‘Klubhopping’ for 2017 with an intense and complex set of keys that dance across the slamming drums. ‘Maverick’ has a deep allure, a mysterious interplay of rumbling chords, spoken words and subtle single key stabs. ‘Small Step’ is the big euphoric climax of the EP with soaring chords and an oldskool feel accentuated by the 303s and timeless synths employed through out.

While many labels like to churn out the bangers but Swerve Digital releases are always exceptional. Here is another fine example of that adherence to high quality. One to add to the buy cart without delay.
