We Mad is a pumping house workout, flexing with weighty garage bass and percussive grooves, while discordant keys play out a tense refrain. The powerful, politicised vocal speech and snippets of diva wailing are used to great effect, lifting the already highly energetic track up another level. My Rail goes in a more heads down direction, with a driving low end groove pummeling away beneath disorientating string cut-ups. Channeling vintage Kerri Chandler, its a relentless workout for when you want to keep things rolling. From Reece strips things down to basics, with a tight, snappy groove and sumptuous 808 bass tones working away under a pitchshifting hip-hop vocal sample creating a vibe thats not too dissimilar to the early golden days of Switch. Mellow keys and a warm meandering synth soften things up as the track progresses.
With support for his music from the likes of Benji B, Gilles Peterson and Annie Mac and appearances at Sonar, Lovebox, XOYO and Boiler Room, Ossie is one of the most exciting names in the new skool of house music.
