Q&A: SW4 ORGANISERS

With 10 stages and over 100 artists, South West Four 2015 is going to be the biggest
Shatterz - Sleeper - Crucial Recordings

The second EP on Sleeper's own Crucial label continues the thick vein of quality, heavyweight halfstep pressure. ‘Reclaim’ kicks things off in style with a rootical roller, all sirens and lazer noises over a ruff bassline. ‘Kaya’ evokes the sound of yesteryear — Skream & Coki in their dubbier '06 phase — with an insistent 'Kaya' vocal snippet and a growling low-end drive. Finished off with ‘Shatterz’, a wasted narcotic rub with superb off-key percussive detail.

Toxin - Etch - Wisdom Teeth

After first appearing on Blackdown’s Keysound imprint back in 2013, Brighton’s Etch has been pushing his dark, skeletal identity via the Soundman Chronicles and Space + Time labels. On new label Wisdom Teeth, he offers up a typical anachronistic piece, an esoteric skin stretched across the faded bones of jungle’s past for a slow-mo bump. In contrast, label honcho K-Lone drops a chirpy little number full of jiggly rhythmic elements and slinky sub bass.

Overflowing (Instrumental Mix) - Michael Woods - Diffused

Do yourself a favour and steer well clear of the vocal cut of Michael Woods’ new single ‘Overflowing’, and head straight for the visceral dancefloor appeal that personifies the instrumental mix. A polished mix of electro and EDM, it’s the brute force of that bassline that cements it as a mainroom banger with enough brute power to wreck the joint. Executed with precision. 

Collecting Dust - Ed:it - Dispatch Recordings

Combining an old skool break with a dark, reverberating industrial sound and a biology lesson about tinnitus, ‘Collecting Dust’ is an ominous monster of a track. Pounding bass and a tumbling drum make this the most enjoyable science class you've ever had.
