    Deekline & Ed Solo step up with their debut LP, the insanely eclectic,
    genre-defying, zeitgeist-defining Bounce 'N' Shake. Some albums are
    for introspective listening, others for putting on in the background
    while you do the housework or homework. This one is for dropping on
    the turntables when you've just opened the doors on the hottest house
    party in town and need to get the evening started with a boom.

    Rifling through booty bass, jungle, soul, breaks, dubstep, drumstep
    and drum 'n' bass with the kind of assurance one might expect from DJs
    who have sent bodies flying round the room at club venues across the
    globe for more than a decade, the UK production duo drop a no-nonsense
    selection of bass music anthems to get your hands in the air as the
    low-end frequencies move your derriere. This one is the very
    definition of all killer, no filler: a boisterous, brazen and
    occasionally barmy trip into the world according to Deekline & Ed
    Solo. An antidote to chin-stroking hipster beats that are about as
    likely to get anyone on the dancefloor as Jesus is to be elected the
    next president of Switzerland.

    First up, balearic-tinged opener Gloria, featuring Christina Nicola,
    is all girls' night out energy: the perfect summer sizzler to keep you
    warm as the nights draw in. Next, Top Cat drops in on the frenetic
    jungle-flavoured Bad Boys, freshening up the famous reggae classic
    with serious aplomb. The gorgeous Always, with Keats on vocals,
    ventures into atmospheric dubstep territory, while All Gravy sees
    Brighton rapper Darrison taking over the mic for a dubby rudeboy
    breakbeat roller. Recent single Reload is a balls-to-the-wall booty
    club stormer with the mighty Million Dan blowing up the place, while
    Hey Mr DJ sees Nicola back in the vocal booth for another
    satin-smooth, sexygirl anthem with mic support from Florida rapper
    Sporty-O.

    The album's meaty mid-section belongs to Gala Osborn, who provides
    driving, confident vocals on the ravey, deep and atmospheric Take It,
    steps in for the legendary Dawn Penn on dubby drum 'n' bass
    party-starter No No No and finishes with the piano-fuelled breakbeat
    killer Hold Head. Sandwiched in between, Countdown shows off Deekline
    and Ed Solo's ability to flex garage-style with the badboy hype coming
    from legendary old skool 2-step MC combo Nu Jam.

    Wipe the brow. Have yourself a glug of ice cold water, because after
    all that firepower in the space of just 10 songs, you definitely
    deserve a break from the fyah. What's that you say? We're only half
    way through. Okay … deep breath and on to part two.

    First up, Dancehall Tribute takes things in a deep and dubwise
    direction, with the legendary Tenor Fly reminiscing over supremely
    funky breakbeats on a track that recalls his chart-topping mid-90s
    period with The Freestylers. Christina Nicola returns for the classy,
    lush dubstep number Weekend Lover, and there's more half-time
    roughness with rapper Hardy Hard sending down a p-funk flavoured vocal
    on the tough and rolling Ridin'. Million Dan, Kidd Money and MC
    Flipside combine forces for the garagey dub-house of Champion Number
    One, before Sweetsounds turns up to rock the mic on the synthy,
    disco-tinged Together. You Can Be My Night is a piano-fuelled d 'n' b
    roller with a heavy jump up influence, while I Like Girls, featuring
    Sporty-O and Vic Bynoe, is a straight-up electro breakbeat booty
    killer about the joys of dem ladeez. Blaze It Up, featuring Million
    Dan, sends ballearic guitar over fearsome d 'n' b beats and the
    dirtiest of basslines, while Gimme a Piece of that Booty, with vocals
    from the legendary Assault, is another roughhouse booty bass anthem.

    Rounding out the album, City to City employs the vocal talents of
    Darrison and Rubi Dan, blowing up the dancefloor with tearing jungle
    flavours for a track that takes no prisoners. Finally, Shake the
    Pressure (Martin Horger remix) sends us off into the night with a
    blinding tech-fuelled booty destroyer.

    A spectacular achievement, and an album likely to join the pantheon of
    great dance music long players, Bounce and Shake is a rare beast in
    these times of throwaway singles, a 21-track double album that bears
    repeated listens and works just as well in the home as in the club.
