Groovepressure 15

Robin Ball’s only release as Resonators launched the Grooverpressure label back in 1999. Now, 17 years later, this reissue is a reminder that Ball and the label were ahead of their time. ‘Booma’ is still a wonderfully futuristic house/techno affair, punctuated by razor-sharp percussion, flitting between breakbeats and straight 4/4s. Meanwhile, ’Shuzzbuzz’, with its powerful bass and tongue-in-cheek vocal sample, is infinitely more entertaining than the current slew of Drexciya fanboys. Ball contributes a bouncy house reshape of ‘Shuzzbuzz’ as well as an electro remix, but it’s all about the original tracks.
