Boomkat Product Review:
Irrepressible pan-global ghetto bass music from Soot music's two brighest talents Filastine and Maga Bo in collaboration for the ressurected Shockout sublabel from Tigerbeat6. Filastine was the last name to show up on Shockout way back at the beginning of 2007, and has previously appeared as Sonar Calibrado, also the EP's title, with Maga Bo on their 2005 mixtape for Post World Industries, demonstrating their unique ability to mash and blend bass music and street beats from a variety of cultures and countries into a heavyweight whole primed for soundsystem deployment. 'Os Asassinos' sets up the EP for the club with a Diplo styled 808 snapping B-more/Miami bass pattern interspersed with Bollywood string slashes and a furious MC delivery from Mr Catra, while 'Se Liga' takes it down to a slower Cumbia tempo pinned down by ever descending bass drops, angular sample editing and stabbing pipes. Consistently shaping up to be one of the best records on the label, 'E Da' pushes more bass energies into intricate string samples, finding increasingly crafty grooves within grooves, and 'Alesh' feat. Jawad finishes with a Modeselektor styled robo-ragga-riddim formed from upturned gabber kicks and mechanoclaps like some hyper Timbaland production. Super good gear for the pan global bass travellers and fans of everyone from Radioclit to Ghislain Poirier or Dj Rupture to Diplo. Mighty Twelve.
