THE ALLERGIES: Promised Land (Album)

THE ALLERGIES: Promised Land (Album)Rating: ★★★★★ The Allergies finally make it to the Promised Land on their new studio LP and boy have they got every intention of taking you there as well! It’s the duo’s fifth studio LP since 2016 though they’ve maintained such a ridiculously high output of releases in that time as to render surprise at such a schedule obsolete. Let’s consider instead the mental anguish they must

MORLACK: My Spin Is Ur Drama

Morlack reckons his spin is your drama on his new Funk Blasters drop entitled – er – My Spin Is Ur Drama – and he’s not talking about his washing machine or his ability to manipulate political cock-ups into media triumphs either. Nope, it’s another anything goes (as long as it’s broadly 80s-funk-influenced party breakbeat) Morlack EP with the samples blender in full effect. Thus while the beats

PULP FUSION: Hands Up! This Is A Bank Robbery

PULP FUSION:  Hands Up! This Is A Bank RobberyJust shy of a month old (and therefore long overdue some monkey shine) is the new long player from Swiss producer Terence Thöny a.k.a Pulp Fusion, entitled Hands Up!

THE ALLERGIES: Love Somebody/ Promised Land (Vinyl 7″)

Rating: ★★★★★ The title track to The Allergies’ forthcoming fifth studio LP Promised Land was unleashed as a digital cut in July and if, back then, you wondered ‘Why no wax?’ then, perhaps it’s because it now finds it’s way onto the B-side of the new Allergies 45 Love Somebody. As previously noted in greater detail, Promised Land is a dope gospel-ish style breakbeat number

X-RAY TED: Get It Started

X-RAY TED:  Get It StartedNext from X-Ray Ted on Bombstrikes is single Get It Started which does indeed get things started and like a bastard too with a brace of amped and funky instrumental dancefloor breakbeat belters. The aforementioned cut proves you can never have too much of a good thing by opening with a roughly half minute build-up plundering from a host of classic build-up tropes – you know – vocal

THE ALLERGIES: Promised Land

Looks like it’s time for yet another new single from The Allergies in the run-up to their forthcoming fifth (already!) long player and this time it’s title track Promised Land. A gospel-ish style breakbeat number a la Moby’s Play LP, this drop employs a simple rugged breakbeat, plenty of electric blues fuzz guitar, and mixes up a female gospel type hook with block party shouts and
