Calling all booty shakers!
Its not been long since Cornish DJs, =AVE=, Olly G & Hi-Fly stumbled on to the horizon as the Freerangers, yet theyve already made a big impression. Their latest and greatest, showcases their fidgety broken beats and sub-heavy wonk perfectly. Rammed with old skool scratches, trumpets, chunky ass drums and a think as muck bottom end, Old Jack will not leave your set for a while.
DJ Mag 4.5/5
West Country bods Ben & Lex are real troopers, and here they bring relative newbies The Freerange DJs onto their Ape label for a scratchadelic, jackin beast that is, indeed, riddled with old skool samples (Space Invaders, a neighing horse etc). The growling, scrunched up b-line powers it home, while Quadrat Beat expands on the bassline to take it into proper acid territory. Dom Almond goes a bit mental, and then exciting newcomer Eshericks really raves it up for the pick of the bunch, with peaking synths, wiggly 303s and true hardcore sensibilities.
Thisisbreaks.com Single of the week
Ape Music throws down the gauntlet on their latest release, which appears courtesy of festival-spanning threesome, Freerange DJs but takes our single of the week prize due to its impressiveness as an overall package. The original has a hint of an old skool flavour and stands up well as peak-time, booty shakin fun, whereas remixes from Dom Almond, Eshericks and Quadrat Beat offer tougher, breakier alternatives. Meanwhile, Jinx and Rektchordz add a dubbed-out feel to the release with their versions, whilst holding on to the originals deep low end. An exciting bundle, like a night on the town with some of breakbeats finest.
