I Wanna Rock/9th Floor

Beat Bazaar
Backdraft have long been dutifully ploughing the tear-out fields virtually anonymously, but here - in advance of their 'We Know Where You Live' album - they drop a double-headed single and come out sounding like a Zane Lowe band. Cheekz and Solja exchange catchy MC interplay, rolling out the rhymes for a hype track that'll sound great on the radio. Dogmatix supplies a disappointing club mix, while '9th Floor' is a bombastic trip-hop effort featuring Ebere that Future Funk Squad peak-times up into a screamer. Backdraft: moving out of the shadows.
