Boomkat Product Review:
Punch Drunk drop the blazing debut from Guido! With two hugely acclaimed singles and only just as many remixes, Guido has achieved a level of respect within the bass-music scene usually reserved for long standing vets. Alongside the other G's, Ginz, Gemmy and er... Joker, Guido has developed a unique fusion of heavyweight R'n'B, dubstep and electrofunk, more commonly known as "dat purple Brizzle sound". With the grimy strings and starburst synth of last years 'Orchestral Lab' he injected the sound with a charismatic melodic-but-melancholy personality that refreshed the overtly dread style the scene was headed into. This is fresh club music that learned an important lesson from dubstep: 90% of female dancers don't want darkstyle badman tracks all the time! With this perhaps subconsciously in mind, Guido makes polychromatic fresh-step, using heavyweight subs and considerate gangsta rhythms to get the whole club bouncing. Tracks like 'Beautiful Complication' and 'Mad Sax' are becoming anthems from Glasgow to Athens, and we reckon that the highlight, 'Way U Make Me Feel' featuring Yolanda is potentially one of the years biggest anthems. Everyone from Pitchfork to Fact magazine are big into this. A must check!!!
