Supremely classy breakbeat from the London-based producer, who takes Rich & Deller's soulful vocal-led Balearic house original and twists it up with an electro-style bassline and extra syncopated goodness.
Curling acid, minor key sub-riffs and plenty of ooh-ah chords and pads mark ‘Shadow’s outset. Add a foxily voxed topline and Monster Force’s latest is clearly on the right track.
Here we have two of the hypest names in the new wave of breakbeat bass on one release. Denver's Wuki delivers a searing slice of ravey ghetto-edged electro, featuring cool organ-style keys, wicked brass stabs and that repeated vocal refrain: "Don't talk shit 'til you learn to hold a mic right/Fuck what you heard about my life". But it's New Yorker Tony Quattro's killer remix that just shades it for me, sending tribal percussion, whistles, blips and trappy percussion over deep 808 bass for a heavyweight reworking that will have 'em crying into the bassbins.
