These guys keep on delivering vocal hardstyle anthems bordering on a commercial level, but that’s not a bad thing for the scene in general. Featuring a catchy male vocal and bleepy main melody, some clever pitch-bending sections give it that extra edge. This is one of those tracks that's made to be played at peak-time on the main stage at festivals of the harder styles this summer.
How often do you hear a club record that summons genuine euphoria? It’s what trance producers are constantly striving for, though Glaue catches lightning in a bottle here with ‘C Landing’. It all comes down to its epic two-minute breakdown, which he’s cleverly chosen to spotlight by placing it in the opening of the record. It eventually builds to a drop that establishes it as a mainroom melodic anthem, and the exhilaration levels are kept in the red for the duration.
Urrgghhh! And that’s pretty much all I can say, this one’s dirty! 'Blackjack' is a screwface riddim through and through. Versatile enough to appeal across the board, it’s filthy enough to slip into the gritty raves like Nu Era or Low Down Deep, but deep and powerful enough to stand out at a Ram or Shogun night. Throughout Rymetime reads the index of a smoker’s encyclopaedia.
Tasty and tough three-tracker from one half of Mista Men, now very much striking out on his own. Raw, no-frills dutty house music for those raggedy dances where you don’t mind a few spilt pints on your crispy creps and where you’ll enjoy the aroma of a cheeky biffter wafting through the air. Check 'Warehouse' for its flashes of grime simplicity and hypnotic roll.
