Anybody who follows bass music knows – Plastician is a badman. This new EP harks back to the original rave era as well as the early grime days which made his name.
‘Bad Like Us’ and ‘Retro’ bang hard with an anthemic old skool vibe, the former featuring Doctor with a heavy up front vocal assuring any would be contenders to the throne that ‘them nah bad like us’. Next we have two grimey bangers, the menacing ‘Senate’ and beatific ragga vibes of ‘Elixir’. Doctor once again features on ‘Rebel Music’, a forceful dubstep smasher. Rounded off by the aforementioned track’s instrumental this release is as mighty and unrestrained as ever – If you are familiar with Plastician‘s sound then you already know what to expect. Out 18th September, you can pre-order from Juno.
Estate Recordings goes from strength to strength showing that the recent Umbro bursary was well deserved. The new single, their 7th release, drops on the 20th August and it’s a killer.
On the A side it’s the first release from super-producer and selector Chimpo and ridiculously good vocalist Fox. They go by the name of The Eyes and it’s a fantastic mix of talents with each artist going back to the roots of music with the vibes on this plate. Both tracks found their way onto the playloist of this weeks Robot Bodypop radio show.
‘Harder’ is a reggae anthem with a hook, which should have people singing throughout the summer. On the flip you have ‘Come Again’ which switches up the vibes with a dancehall riddim this time featuring Strategy found recently rocking speakers worldwide with ‘Marka’
Talented video work from Joe Gavin once again. Really excited to see whats next from both Estate Recordings and The Eyes.
