These Jersey boys sure have been quiet for a couple of years, but return here with a rolling minimalistic steppa that calls on legendary rapper Cheshire Cat (Leftfield) to deliver some on-point irie conscious rhymes. The stripped-down nature of the original is quite a surprise, but the remixes up the ante in various ways. Sub Slayers mainstay Toronto Is Broken turns it freewheelin’ drum & bass, while Gella excels with a burbling bashy bagatelle drumstep piece. Jinx In Dub starts in dub before building it into a raw polyrhythmic junglist slab, and Atomic Drop turn it anthemic dubstep.
Spatial Awareness follows his own recent debut single with another classy remix outing, this time bringing a bubbling acid feel to his stripped back legacy beats.
The Cratebug edits team tackle new and updated treatments of perennial disco classics such as Martin Circus' 'Disco Circus' and Macho's 'I'm A Man'.
Nottingham resident Timbah’s newest EP ‘Flow Poke’ is a little bit naïve, but it’s that very wide-eyed experimentalism that marks him out as one to watch. There’s a lot going on across the tracks, with Timbah attacking numerous abrasive beat styles with vigour, but Murlo’s remix feels like it’s a country mile ahead of the original material, with the London producer’s unique command of rhythmic switch-ups and melody proving to be consistently impressive.
