Suss Cunts - Temper

Suss Cunts – Temper

Suss Cunts have dropped a ripper of a track with ‘Temper’ that takes me all the way back to the sound of The Cure’s ‘Killing An Arab’ meets Hazel O’Connor.  Listening to ‘Temper’ and ‘Newby’ back to back feels just like heaven to me.

Solstis - Open Your Eyes

Solstis – Open Your Eyes

If ‘Open Your Eyes’ by Solstis was a cocktail, it would be made up of Jean-Michel Jarre, Justice and Skrillex.  It’s industrial and also symphonic and sounds like it is straight out of a chase scene from T2 when they’re in the steel mill.
BOiCE, Feline - Soaking Lovers

BOiCE, Feline – Soaking Lovers

This track is criminally too short.  BOiCE and Feline with ‘Soaking Lovers’ is an exotic dance of a track that makes me want to shake it.
Set Mo - Nightmares feat. Scott Quinn

The Magician – Las Vegas (feat. Ebenezer)

UBER KINGS - Keeping The Fat

UBER KINGS – Keeping The Fat

If you’re a De La Soul fan, you’ll recognise the Bob James’s ‘Sign of the Times’ sample used here on ‘Keeping The Fat’.  Not only has the fat not been trimmed, it has been seared to a crisp trap’tastic level. It’s as if Pennywise did the remix!
