Description of Kansas City Prophets / T Polar Defiance EP

Kansas City Prophets and T-Polar go back to back on this one, offering dub, dancehall, electro and broken beats, fused together with lashings of bass. KCP's 'Cams' kicks off with a stepping riddim, but there's a wealth of tune in here between the sparse beats, the stabbing hooks, and the bass bubbling underneath. Reggae legend and dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson's rich dread lyrics give a combo move bonus for every beat they team up with, "chanting blood and fire!". 'Drome' features a tough ragga beat at its core, with a maze-like network of twists and turns over the top for MC Soom T to navigate with her peerless style. Growling bass swoops and some fantastic slam-shuffling rythyms form the basis of T-Polar's 'Jangostep', tricked out to the last with some warped vocal science and textural shifts that switch the intensity every which way for your brain melting pleasure. 'Suburban Roulette' combines chopped up vocals jamming with some garage beat stylings, while a thick bass line runs tings from the bottom up, perfectly showcasing the Belfast producer's unique take on quality electronics.

Title:Rapidfirebuzzer EP
100% bass heft guaranteed with the latest release from Dublin's !Kaboogie crew, featuring Ed Devane, Mad EP, The Banker and Sarsparilla. Hot off the release off his debut album 'Molten Membrane', Ed Devane brings the noise with the massive 'Playtime', one that's been tested at multiple parties the last few months with awesome results - just wait for the half-time drop! After mashing up the dance for !Kaboogie's club nights, Mad EP's 'Bass Crunchers' is a full booty workout that's sure to see some curious shapes develop on the floor. A master of mashups and bass-heavy programming, Dublin's Banker makes his vinyl debut with 'Badman'. This one's been killing it at parties, if you're wanting to get the place on a half-step skank, pack it. Finally - with two albums under his belt for Alphabet Set - Sarsparilla makes his !Kaboogie debut in style. Previously featured on his 'Karahee' CD, 'The Count' features his signature sharp production over some killer classic electro stylings.

Title:Squidge EP
Repping the Dublin bass-centric sound, our toppermost friends at the City Discs store launch the !Kaboogie label with four tracks of bottom-heavy dancefloor wreckers from Ireland's most cracked low-end producers. First up, Prince Kong is a man on a mission to blow up the dance. A tough ragga riddim underlies his track 'Rise Up', with MC Jah Balance calling for all to do like the title says as the breaks kick in the door. Guaranteed to get the place heaving, wherever the place is. Next come Lakker, who have been described as "one of the best electronic acts in Ireland" by the Journal of Music in Ireland, and after a run through 'Unexpected Error', it's clear how they earned this accolade, thanks to paranoia-inducing swathes of darkstyle bass combined with fast-paced beats for a pure nightmare scenario. Flipside, 16 Hertz makes his vinyl debut with the massive '16 Tons', a beast of a track that combines half-step percussion with a huge brass riff. Belfast's Thatboytim closes the EP with 'Past The End', a bass-heavy booty electro-jak tune, featuring a haunting vocal line, and undeniably the most intriguing of the four pieces on show here. This crunching 12" will hit the spot for fans of The Bug, Cardopusher, Rusko, Gunjack, and Kid 606... 300 copies only... insert you own tired Guiness and shamrock puns here.
