YCO001 - BLURED - IT'S QUITE ( OVERPOWERING )
300 x limited vinyl only release, hand stamped and numbered
'It's quite overpowering... no point in standing round'
The first release from a new producer rarely sounds like this. Swaggering through your speakers with a distinct lack of concern for weak hearts or brittle bones, the first record from Blured is a focused combination of dirty funk and malignant, pig-iron bass.
Not operating quite in line with any current dance music trends, 'It's Quite' cuts the cerebral malice of UK techno with some suspicious-smelling substances that you'd usually find squashed into your sweaty palm on a dancefloor in Berlin during the tail-end of a weekend that's gone on far too long. You're left with a dark, physical, club weapon.
On the flip, Luv-Jam takes the original somewhere else altogether, into that inner space where you probably shouldn't spend too much time. Layers of analogue-sounding bass warp about on a real old school Chicago jack track, and the original's club-commanding vocal gets deranged into madness. One downright uncanny body groove for the wrong 'uns.
YCO is brand new label that has forced itself into being from the unstoppable passions of the City Bass collective. In two years their wall-banging Cardiff basement parties have created an utterly dedicated following that is rare in these days of internet hype and dry raves. This is about realness, rawness, and proper dedication to the underground.
