Smoke Notes

UK Garage, or two step to some, is a unique hybrid of other musical styles in much the same way as Dancehall is, with elements of dub, house, drum & bass and even techno thrown in the mix to create something completely its own. Of course as you'd imagine there are many sub-genres within the realm of UK Garage, everything from the commercial stylings of crews like So Solid Crew and Mystique through to the more leftfield sound of Horsepower Productions, who with their second longplayer are set make the impact they so rightly deserve. 'To The Rescue' is full of outstanding music - opener "Golden Nugget" is a tribute to the Spaghetti Western, complete with voice over. "Synbad" takes us through Aladdin's caves and on a carpet ride through sub bass and eastern instrumentation, finally giving way to a techno chord you'd expect to find on a Jeff Mills record. "Special 131" shows the group are just as good when bringing down the tempo, a near perfect combination of Warp style Electronica and dubbed up bass, while "Hand Of Death" features Kung Fu samples, squelching bass and tight breaks, and is perhaps the cut most firmly aimed at the dancefloor. Horsepower Productions are a group that make personal music that thankfully nearly all can enjoy, though fans of dub and drum & bass especially will find much to enjoy here, and frankly if anything ever deserved to be called "new-school" then this is it. Recommended.
