02. Throwing Shade - House Of  Silk [Ninja Tune]
Some records need a while to grow. Whilst the internet-savvy and highly infectious tune "Hashtag IRL" caught our attention immediately we were slightly thrown off by the other tunes featured on Throwing Shade's most recent EP as they didn't really match our expectations of being served a menu of Bass Music-influenced Electronica with this one. Instead, we're getting highly chromatic Intelligent Techno, melodic, bass-heavy Electronica / TripHop-amalgamations and other goodness we learned to appreciate after giving them a few spins although still  "Hashtag IRL" wins for us. Also a point of criticism: there should be at least some space or a second of silence between tunes as different as "Marble Air" and "Ecco Echo" to give DJ's a chance to play these out to the very end.

03. Amit - Spring Cuttah [Amar 008]
What a blast for all lovers of dubwise music. Amit, best known for his unique approach towards Drum'n'Bass and Halfstep, serves a first class, high quality Dub jam that even Dub connaisseurs like Adrian Sherwood or David Rodigan would approve of. Think a 10" vinyl that oozes ultra low bass frequencies like no other, accompanied by echoes and sparse melody bits. Quite an excellent bit this tune named "Spring Cuttah" although the quality of the pressing is questionable, especially on the flip which holds an Addison Groove Remix of "Operator" that is quite crackly and poppy with even some bits of dirt found stamped into the grooves. This though doesn't matter too much for us as super slomo Jungle / Amen Dubstep is not our preferred genre of Dub related music but we're sure that the people who like this tune best would've appreciated - and deserved - a slightly better pressing for sure.

04. Protein - The Secret Garden [Schamoni Musik / Alien Transistor Promo]
