Latvian duo Under This have been making huge waves over the past
couple of years with their powerful progressive breakbeat sound. Here
they step up to the main iBreaks label after serving an apprenticeship
on iBreaks Bass, and the heady, hypnotic swirl of Rhythm is Dope shows
exactly why this is an act to keep an eye on. Chunky beats and
insistent bass underpin a relentless synth line and a cool vocal
refrain for a track that will be in boxes for a long time to come.
On the flip, Funqualize throws down super-dope slap bass, tight
70s-style brass and ruthlessly frenetic beats for a sure-fire party
starter that will breathe life into any dancefloor and is something
very different from Under This. A worthy iBreaks debut for the kids
from the Baltic. Grab 'em while they're hot!
