Hot on the heels of the Luke’s Anger smash album ‘Live Wrong and Prosper’, Bonus Round brings you a very special various artists EP for it’s eighth release.
‘Round and Sturdy’ is a killer collection of tracks from a crop of artists all currently on top of their beat sculpting game.
Ben Pest opens the EP with ‘What’s with 1996’, a funky warehouse roller with a vibe not unlike classic Bangalter jams from the mid 90’s. After Ben’s storming EP on BONUSROUND005, he delivers once again with this fine track, which really captures the raw energy of his infamous hardware live show.
UK sample-maestro Michael Forshaw follows with a tuff tribal techno workout. ‘A Mild Stroke’ will fit in well with modern house and techno sets alike, the sample of an excitable American evangelical stroke victim has to be heard to be believed… Bizarre, hilarious and twisted, one thing is for sure it will bring some smiles and movement to the dance floor!
Bonus Round co-conspirer Al Tourettes is back on the flipside with some heavy UK bass pressure. Al has been seriously busy since his last appearance on Bonus Round and returns with a more refined and weighty sound, Vogel-esque synths and a pummelling bassline take this track down the rabbit hole and out the other side! Drawing influences from (proper) electro and melding this with his new dubstep-laced rhythms, ‘Body Logic’ is pure class and will appeal to DJs of the future garage sound and electro fans alike.
Rounding off the EP is Rag ‘n’ Bone label boss No Yeah No. ‘Ride it Baby’ brings a certain familiar house classic bang up to date with hard jacking beats and cheeky edits. Like all the tracks featured on the EP this has great cross-over appeal and is +10 on the freak-factor and positively dripping with funk.
