Rock It Science Laboratories levels up again with their 2nd release of 2012: Roy Davis Jr & Bear Who’s Automatic Principles. All mixes play off of Bear’s inventive B-Boy style hip house vocals, with Roy leading the way with two fantastic takes. His “Autoelectrik Speaker Killa Mix” goes straight for the big floors with huge bottom-heavy electro synths over drums reminiscent of his release on Thomas Bangaltar’s Roule. His house mix is straight up classic Chicago house, masterfully weaving together a tapestry of samples. Leonardus cranks the filter disco goodness vibe up to 11. His Majesty Andre departs from his norm, developing a spacious sound scape with shuffled percussion and dark gritty tech house synths. DJ Gantman busts out a slowed down juke groove clearly made for the ladies. Finally Eric Sharp takes us back to the ‘90s with a speed garage remix replete with big open hi-hats, warbling bass and energetic horn stabs.
