Title track vibes a run with 'Putting in Werk'. A hip hop sampled frenzy full of vocal stabs, rave breaks and an array of '92 vibes. All this mixed with an up to date time signature, crisp production and a bucket load of atmosphere.
GQ is certainly the greatest host to ever do it in the jungle scene, probably why he gets sampled so much and 'Power Hour' is no exception to the rule. MC vibes flood through the speakerbox, taking you back to the 5-6 in the morning time slot with gritty eyeballs, sore noses and trainers sticking to the concrete. Shouts to Private Caller on this one.
You can't produce an EP like this and forget about synth chord stabs right? Thankfully 'Rush' delivers on all aspects of the requirements and rocks both a tidy sequence of DX7 flavours and rough, tough and somewhat dangerous to your speakerbox breakbeats.
'Bad Boy Beats' wraps up the EP in true to form style. A rollercoaster ride of borderline early happy hardcore meets breakbeat techno. Chuck in some jungle vocal samples and what you have here is the perfect end to this trip and the gateway to the next episode.
Ravers rejoice as Samurai Breaks has brought back Fantazia, Obsession and The Edge all at once here. If you remember then good on you and if you want an education into the world of early hardcore.. raise up your hands and leave that iPhone in your pocket.
