1st ep from australian dubstep duo. kito provides the bass heavy pop-infused production skills, blending perfectly with reija lees lively crisp vocals. dubstep has been in search of that perfect pop cross-over & they do it with class & flair.
bosco delrey is at once a thick combination of influences and a totally unique voice in current music. diplo describes him as >a sort of garbage can elvis from new jersey... teaspoon craziness, a pinch of rockabilly, and full cup of soul dressed in a leather jacket. he cant be topped as far as song writing... hes doin the music i wish i could if i had bought a guitar<, the fader called his song >round n round hillbillyhall, and boscos own myspace says >jerry lee lewis carol king of pop<. but whatever you call him, bosco delrey is making music that is instantly accessible, totally cool, and unlike anything else on our wide-sweeping mad decent radar.
space junky is the track that first brought bosco delrey to public attention, landing him pieces on the fader, rcrdlbl and elsewhere. it features his typical excess of influences- semi-psychedelic guitars, bedroom soul hooks, splurting dancehall reggae basslines- anchored down by solid songwriting and lyrics. it s a weirdly great combination that made us think this guy might be on to something. my my racecar is harder to pin down, but no less intriguing with a chopped up guitar lead, mouth pop rhythm section and zipping bass. the drop the lime influence shines on these two tracks, lending heavy bass, sound effects and making everything crispy.

r.i.p. hollertronix series, that club staple borne in philly by diplo and low b that, in its lifetime, has seen the pair rise from small time basement collaborators and underground party hustlers to major label players and arena rockers. it helped introduced the world to bmore and balie funk music and let djs know it was okay to embrace a pluralistic club experience where its more than okay to crunch up a set with indie, hip hop and dance music. the seeds of hollertronix are sown, but now they ve grown, with the departure of low b, diplo has nursed the growth into the full fledged mad decent label under universals downtown records umbrella. the last word from hollertronix is this, a four track banger from amsterdams the partysquad, which is the hollertronix 10 12inch. it includes potential future classics: pull up, crazyfunkystyle, murderer & rage.
