Seven talented producers pull out all the stops on our fourth All Stars compilation, with most venturing into unknown territory to showcase a different shade of their sonic palette. Believe us, this one’s got something for everyone.
Kicking things off are TIN mainstays Soul Mass Transit System who team up with LA producer Introspekt on a super slick, super sexy garage house track, peppered with irresistible vocal licks and bubbly organ melody. Next up it’s up-and-comer Yemi who, following his label debut - a soulful UKG 6-tracker - explores his high-speed inclinations with a hefty jungle cut made cinematic by choral singers. The third track may sound familiar to some - SMTS’ UKG reimagined by Bakey as skippy breakbeat, with funk-inspired brass stabs injecting playfulness and dynamism into an already-classic tune.
Daffy is up next with a raucous breaks number undergirded by the growl of a warped reese bass before Groovy D strips things back with some tuneful UKG, complete with vocal licks and a piano melody. Finally, it’s up to Japanese jack of all trades Stones Taro to close proceedings. ‘Rise Up’ is an assertive electro-inspired track with an acid melody and cosmic soundscape.
