Breakbeat science of highest quality..
The label say: " The Higher puckers up a ravishingly rude debut for XL with ‘The Core’ - four lip-smacking love notes to the ecstasy of ‘Ardcore aerobics.
Coming on lush out of nowhere, ‘The Core’ introduces itself arms open and dancing into the wind of the soundsystem. Rinsing out precision tooled rave tropes, Detroit taught strings and spine-tracing breaks for their purest essence and hardcore swerve.
’Stick 3’ goes on nutty in a burst of ravenous, darkside energy with bags of UK warehouse swagger, while ‘Submarine 99’ lets the sweat cool a minute, lean and gangsta with the k-dub, then coming loved-up and boisterous in ’Submarine ’95’, a deeply classy but rugged rollers vortex that twists timeless influences into inexorable, new, rave music that's keenly aware of the original ‘90s format.
Gurny, strobing kisses and sweaty hugs to 4 Hero, Mumdance & Logos, Rufige Kru, Zomby, RAM, Overmono, Doc Scott, Special Request, 2 Bad Mice, Demdike Stare."
