Cuttin’ It Fine Records rounds off the year in fine style with four-tracker Flava For Ya from Vancouver-based new boy Ross Go. It’s all about the hip-hop samples on Flava For Ya as RG chops up Craig Mack over a fat new beat to reinvigorate – well – that flava in ya ear of course. Following this, Got To Get Down goes uptempo with an instro full of vocal samples that’ll slot right into your big beat sets, Rock Y’all drops the tempo again slightly for a bassy slab of party breakbeat and Work It wraps shit up in a Latin breaks stylee. The overall impression is that of the sort of stuff people like Badboe used to put out before all that wobble-bass came along and which is now enjoying a resurgence.
