nachdem bereits die vorabsingle -loving me wrong- bei den tastemakern von mixmag über thump bis dj mag für furore sorgte, schieben die uk bass-legenden stanton warriors nun ihr siebtes studioalbum -rebel bass- hinterher. die zehn bassbanger und einprägsamen ohrwürmer entstanden in teils prominenten kollabos mit cause & affect (dirtybird), night-bass-king ac slater (owsla) und new yorks tony quattro (trouble & bass).
fifty first recordings was created in 1994 out of a small but very productive studio in london called state 51 using the down time and the very talented engineers who had been brought together for state 51 s existing clients. state 51 was the go to studio for the likes of x-press 2, sharp, amalgamation of soundz. the engineers we worked with included mark woolford, james brown, james reynolds & mark yardley. fifty first recordings soon found a name for itself and was very quickly at the forefront of the new generation of uk garage music. we produced and released music in the 90s, for over 7 years, with the likes of tuff jam etc. and later went to develop other imprints such as konnect / test press / unda vybe / spread love / tick etc., some in partnership with producers and managed artists.
shifting gears is a stand out track from headthrash. riddled with dj trickery the stanton warriors remix is already creating fever pitch amongst the djs lucky enough to have a copy. a fusion of funk riffs, urgent disco stabs and hip hop vocals driven by one of the warriors trademark basslines. heavy and epic, positive and optimistic. on the flipside rocket soul has the classic signature plump sound from start to finish. reminiscent of their hugely successful system addict and looking like it will rival in popularity. we have upfront copies in store now.
