Boomkat Product Review:
Tempa present the Allstars class of 2015 with volume. 8 of the seminal UK series.
Running yungers alongside relative veterans, it’s an acute summary of current action in the shadows of the hardcore continuum: a forging mongrel constructions form the stripping down bones of techno, hip hop, dubstep, footwork and jungle.
Epitomising what UK and Bass music means in 2015, this may well be their widest-angled selection to date, taking in the crooked, salty clonq of Acre’s Messages alongside the trap-dubstep hybrid of The Ville by Epoch, and the twysted techno axis of Cliques’ AUT, before spinning off into the future with Fracture’s dread footwork jungle prediction Excalibur, leaving Youngsta and Biome to rep four the deepest, darkest half step faithful.
