Alan Cross- Back In The Day

Alan Cross - Back In The Day {Census Sound]

Back in the days when I was young I’m not a kid anymore
But some days I sit and wish I was a kid again

Those were the words of a rapper named Ahmad back in 94′ but this is Alan Cross taking us ‘Back In The Day’ to a different sound, not Hip Hop but definitely House music with that original vibe and sound making you wish you were a young un’ all over again!!!

‘Back In The Day’ centres around a big uplifting piano lead with some vocals to pump you up in 90s oldskool fashion, that with bouncing funky bass and rolling percussion and some cool reverse pattern sections is surely all you need to lose it late into the night!!!

If breaks is yo’ bad then kWeRK’s remix of ‘Back In The Day’ is spring loaded with jumpin’ breakbeats and handclaps with a filtered disco feel that gets infiltrated with some shaggy UK bass!!!

Huff’s Funky House remix says ‘white isle’ in big bold letters, its electrifying and energetic to the max. Close your eyes while listening and you can see people dancing on the sand its so good!!!

Tom Clyde – Driving Me Crazy / Black Lodge

Tom Clyde - Driving Me Crazy-Black Lodge

Tom Clyde brings some tasty tech breaks sounds to Census Sound with ‘Driving Me Crazy’ & ‘Black Lodge’

Starting with ‘Driving Me Crazy’, Russian beatmaster, Tom Clyde brings a level of detail to his production that is always appreciated and a source of thrills and highs for the listener. The dark textures on this track will have you thinking of the early 00’s Nu Skool Breaks sound pioneered by Rennie Pilgrim, Freq Nasty and others.  ‘Black Lodge’ certainly has a David Lynchian feel to it, is the title a direct reference to the esoterical realm of Twin Peaks where Laura Palmer dances with the little red man? Perhaps so, its a great tune, that much we do know!!!

Whitedrives put a unique Eastern twist on the Deep House sound with ‘Deepest Joy’ on Census Sound Recordings

Londoners, DJ Wadcutter & Martin James a.k.a Whitedrives draw on a wealth of influences going all the way back to the early 90s warehouse rave scene for the percussion-filled beats and  elated vocal snatches of ‘Deepest Joy’

Ettica chunk up the original into a smouldering slice of gritty, underground Tech House. Census Sound owner, Alan Cross draws influence from the gunshots and booming basslines of 90’s Speed Garage for an upfront and unabashed straight up banger of a remix!!! Variety is the spice of life and Census Sound show their diversity as a label once again with a striking and refined release.
