Boomkat Product Review:
For D'n'B in 2009 we can't imagine it getting much tighter, heavier or effective than this plate from Instra:mental. Launched from D-Bridge's Exit Recordings imprint, the latest twelve features two versions of 'Thugtronik', one bristling with a concentrated tech-steppers energy coming from twisting drums edits and an almighty muthafu**er of a bassline giving some concession to the less hardy with slight moody melodic arrangements. But flip over for the properly ruff version, allowing ghoulish synthlines to roam free over a rebooted riddim making the bassline even more intense and generally creating an authentic shit-the-bed atmosphere. Totally sick rave weapons, these are crying out for big systems and skilled dancers. Tip!
