Rory Hoy comes straight outta Knaresborough again (no, really), sidesteps the temptation to go ghetto and wobble up the bass and comes through with some booming nu funk heat on this latest drop from Big M. Old school funk and hip-hop samples aplenty vie with Rory’s nutty production stylings and are all set to ensure (as always) some fairly pneumatic dancefloor action. He even somehow manages to get old school producer Freddy Fresh (who just happens to be label boss for Hoy’s releases on Howlin’ Records) to collaborate on the big beatisms of Trumped. Arguably it’s the stop/starty nu funk/ nu disco animal of a title track that takes the crown with it’s throbbing bass. Watch out for the crazy drop in the middle where it slows down about 20 bpm before speeding right back up again.
