Bombstrikes returns with another slice of dancefloor related greatness, with the 4th volume of the INTO BATTLE series. Once again multiple artists combine to provide a forward thinking release of the highest standards. This time out label regulars Pimpsoul & Neon Steve provide the action alongside a label debut for the deservedly hyped Canadian Bryx.
Pimpsoul is the first to step up to the plate with the devastatingly effective Rock You. A slick use of vocal cuts and relentless rhythms form the backbone of this cleverly crafted beats banger. Also on the A side new boy Bryx comes correct with his bassline heavy Terrorist. Haunting and impossible to not move to the much-loved Canadian shows why he is so hotly tipped. Rounding things off with the AA side all to himself is the extremely talented Neon Steve. With this lush and beautifully produced slice of Drum and Bass he once again shows the depths of his talents.
Another seriously strong release from the Bombstrikes label highlighting why they lead the way in pushing things forward.
Following hot on the heels of the outstanding Pimpsoul ep, Bombstrikes once again maintain their scene leading formula. This time out it's the turn of Nick Thayer to deliver the dancefloor goodies. In a style very much his own, Nick raises the bar even higher with this incredibly strong three-track ep.
There is no messing about on this EP "Do You Want more" on the A side hits hard. With vocal hooks and guitars kicking the track off in fine style before the almighty lead synth hits with guaranteed head nodding approval. For our money this is an absolute monster. Over on the flip, first up is "Rhythm Method" which brings Nick's trademark swing and movement to the proceedings. Vocals play perfectly with the synth and horn riffs to ensure plenty of dancefloor ass shaking will follow. Rounding things off nicely is the bass heavy groover "Ladies Love Cool Jams" which is so devastatingly executed it is bound to hit the right spots.
First Bombstrikes release of the New Year and they kick things off in some style. After the huge farewell to the much-loved Volume series they show no sign of stopping in the delivery of consistently high quality dancefloor bombs. The label returns for the 3nd volume in their DJ friendly ?Into Battle series' with an EP of absolute monsters once again from 4 different artists. The EP includes tracks from Bombstrikes regular Pimpsoul, alongside label debuts for Parker & Slynk, who need no introduction. Rounding off the EP is a name to watch out for in 2011; Neon Steve.
Bombstrikes delivers what will be the last release of the much-loved Volume series and boy does it deliver on this one! (Don't worry this is not the end of Bombstrikes just the volume series!) The label has become a best friend to Djs worldwide through maintaining unbelievably high standards of production and dancefloor impact with each release and this is no exception to that ethos. Volume 20 sees the teaming up of one the label's originators with one of their newest stars, as Mooqee & Pimpsoul combine to devastating effect. With that kind of pedigree it's no surprise that all three tracks on the Ep are such solid party rockers with immense production. First up is 'KEEP POUNDING' which sees the duo get out the scalpel for some seriously clever cutting of the vocals, added to the swingiest of beats and fat synth stabs this is one track destined to be huge. This is followed up on the flip by 'LET IT POP' the electronic reworking of a hip hop monster, with some booty shaking changes to the groove along the way. Then to round things off its Disco time with 'DO IT', which reworks one of the all time guitar riffs over tough beats and analogue synths to bring a fresh take on it with subtle attention to detail, making it dancefloor gold all over again. What a way to wrap up the Volume series with three very different tracks all done with the highest quality and never taking focus off making people get down and have fun.
Bombstrikes once again maintains its unbelievably high standards with this, the 19th EP in the volume series. For this release they have something of a Nu Funk dream team with the creative coming together of two of the scenes biggest players, Ali B & Nick Thayer; What a Collaboration! Nick is no stranger to the label with a slew of monsters already on the label but this is the first time for Air records and Kiss Fm Legend Ali B. And the pair do not disappoint.
As expected every track on this three track Ep is killer with production values of the highest order. First up is 'Music' which grabs the audience from the very first note of its horn riff and takes them on a Hip Hop and Funk fused dancefloor workout, instant classic. This is followed up on the flip by the amazing groover 'N E Way', with the fattest of basses it tears up everything in its path. 'Back To You' a forward thinking bass heavy monster of a track then rounds off the package. All in all this is classic Bombstrikes, pushing the sound forward but maintaining its appeal and dancefloor edge. This has to be one of the strongest releases available at the moment!
