REVIEW: FLEETMAC WOOD

'Gold Dust Disco' at The Shacklewell Arms, London
Fresh Tactics - Andy Whitby & Technikal - HARD

Andy Whitby’s HARD brand has been the leading new hard house brand in 2014, with events across the UK as well as albums and of course his ever-popular monthly HARDkast. This debut release on his HARD label sees Andy team up with UK No.1 producer Technikal for a high energy hard house monster, with great rap vocal, bouncy bassline and sharp UK percussive drive.

Cold As Ice - Joey Riot & J@MIE - Lethal Theory

Continuing on the “powerstomp” sound sweeping the UK hardcore scene at the moment, this collaboration is pure four-to-the-floor bouncy action. The hook of the track is a sample from the '70s power ballad from Foreigner! Despite already having been sampled many times within the rave scene, it’s been just long enough to make this a welcome return of a classic, especially with the new powerstomp twist.

Bliss - Deon Custom - Terrorhythm

I’m not really sure how to take this. It’s all a bit too saccharine, try hard and busy, and the vocal effects just feel contrite. Nah.

Cowboy Town - Sole Intent - Lossless Music

This dark and brooding track has a callous and twisted, menacing vibe. Doing its rounds on the dub circuit for a while, it’s finally time to be fully unleashed to the world. Jungle drum patterns and distant fog horns.
