Ruff & tuff collection of 'ardcore / grime / dancehall / UKG / junglist tracks from Bristol-via-Berlin operator Low End Activist -

Kicking off with a killer Flowdan lyric over hardcore-reminiscent, 2K21 proof step-tekkers, and into the instrumental cut for extra rhythm-guide, and into a killer UKG/Breakstep thing entitled 'Torsion Field Tech' (remember those early Toasty productions? This gives us good vibes like those did) - you can tell Low End Activist means business from the get-go, and he serves that bizniz with a keen ear for detail in the arrangements and the production, and - equally important here -
no shortage of screwface bassbin readyness.

On '19STR8BK' that early 2000's bounce is back for more, with a wickedly stretched bassline vs vocal snip juggle. Fuck, where's that Soundsystem at right now - this would be doing good things (and no doubt will!) at good volume, to a crowd of decent people.
On 'Flip' the shuffle intensifies, as staccato breaks and thumping kick step in the ring, shaolin style, doing martial arts with shadowy vocals and sinister pads - proper eerie junglist teksteppers on this one - stealth moves for real.

Cannibal, next up, goes a few shades darker stretches that darkside ambience into infinity for the intro section, before loading up some properly well-executed breakbeat choppage, on a kind of Source Direct type sorcery, before breaking down into some judgement day Memphis Rap bloodshed for a minute, before going ice cold on us again. Serious stuff.
After that refrigerator excursion, we're loaded up with one last bit of bounce, whipping up another bit of UKG / Search & Destroy wickedness, for waist-wigglers and screw-facers alike.

Big, and wickedly executed re-fresh UK dancefloor and bassbin headspace vibes on this.

Thankfully, this record comes served across two discs, so each cut gets the dynamic on the wax that it deserves -
Time to put those speakers to the test once again.
