Julio Bashmore and T. Williams coming forward with some straight-up UK funky styled floor cuts, harking back at the early days when the genre rubbed heads and bumpers with Grime.

Across three tracks Bashmore & Williams present a iron-clad case for some much-needed revivalism. A-side Kuduro Test sees them identify and manipulate the musical similarities between the work of Portugese artists like DJ Marfox et al. and the addictive cross-rhythms of Funky.

On the flip, Porta-Time raises the heat levels on a grime-referencing tip, recalling the works of Lil Silva through the brilliant use of synthesised horns and strings. Final track 1302 rounds out the EP, a jacking drum tool that maintains the ridiculously high energy levels established earlier.

No-nonsense floor burners from one of Bristol’s most ‘international’ exports in recent years, and a welcome return to more ‘underground’ sides of dance music.
