Fancy of a raving Footwork & Bass freshness?

US producer ElectroAss unleashes outstanding stuff on his fresh 7track EP, after his successful collab EP with Kid Fresh.
"Rave That EP" is a great blending of genres and ideas by him and all tracks are made with Ableton using also many and good sampling inside.
ElectroAss is one of those who are inspired by Acid House, Jungle and Oldskool vibes putting elements from these genres on his productions and getting you to another level with his solid vibes. Tracks like "(Slow Down) I Need To Freak" are definetely drawing listener's attention and the result given on his new personal release is worth to support. 

In my opinion ElectroAss is currently one of the best Footwork producers, so if you wanna dig the genre closely, you may add him in your mind to test his tunes & skills.

[MR002] Liam Taylor - Break It EP [Beatport Pro Exclusive Pre-Release Available Now!!!]

1/ Break It.
2/ Hells Bells.

After the release of their debut release last month, the Music Rascals label strikes while the iron is still hot with their second release, the 'Break It EP' featuring the very talented Liam Taylor.

Liam sets the ball rolling with the hypnotically atmospheric drum & bass number, 'Break It' which incorporates contemplative yet slightly ominous pads alongside stepping breaks, down-pitched bleepy bass throbs and a wicked, oldskool repeated 'Break it down time' vocal.

It's companion piece, 'Hells Bells' utilises a classic chiming melody instantly recognisable from an Invisible Man anthem and overlays it with a frenetic, yet simplistic break and manic amen combo complete with expertly timed reversed edits. 

Both tracks capture the essence of 1993's hardcore/jungle crossover perfectly by contrasting soothing atmospherics with intense breaks and booming basslines whilst at the same time effectively introducing modern production techniques to the mix. Liam Taylor is one to watch out for!!!

Liam Taylor's 'Break It EP' is available to download now, exclusively from Beatport Pro for two weeks before going on general release to all good digital stores.!!!

Paranoid Recordings are back once again to deliver more some more essential nuskool rave goodness with their latest installment of free, four track releases, it's time to check out the 'Back To The Core EP'...

The EP opens with Orchid's dark slab of 1992 style, breakbeat hardcore, 'Open Your Mind' which unleashes an hectic, techno synth melody alongside piano stabs, menacing extended bass notes and a cheeky Depheche Mode vocal sample. DJ Rave In Peace offers up his take on the legendary jungle tekno style with 'Stars At Night', which conjures up memories of Basement Records at their mellowest and features smooth pads layered over chunky breaks and the classic Ricky Lee Jones vocal as used by The Orb on 'Little Fluffy Clouds'.

The man like the DJ Bassraver kicks of his 'Hardcore Man' track with spine-tingling metallic timestretched breaks merging into a harsh mentasm and stab section nicely contrasted by mellow pads. He then drops a rolling amen break peppered with classic rave vox and of course the infamous, 'Hardcore man! F@#ing hardcore!!!' dialogue sample. Thumbzo closes off the EP with 'Back To The Core', a roughneck slab of 1993 jungle tekno themed hardcore breaks. Coming on strong with a techno intro and ruff junglistic breaks 'n' bass which merge into a lush atmospheric section layered with scratch snippets and ragga chatting. 

Altogether, Paranoid Recordings come up trumps with another top notch selection of the very best underground, hardcore breaks producers and oldskool sounds ranging from deep, dark and menacing to uplifting euphoria. No excuses, get on this one!!!
