Sam­ple Magic – 2-Step Garage | £19.90

Future Music - - REVIEWS - Roy Spencer

www.sam­ For a hand­ful of years at the end of the nineties, 2-step garage ruled the club and pi­rate ra­dio land­scape. If you missed it the first time around and want to ex­plore the twitchy drums and soul­ful melodies of this dance­floor-ready genre, Sam­ple Magic has got you cov­ered. The drum loops have the cor­rect skip and shuf­fle; the pro­cessed claps ring through, while the kicks have enough meat on their bones to hold it all to­gether. The cone-trou­bling bass loops roll, too, and are sure to get a few cham­pagne flutes raised in the air when they drop. Add poly chord synth play­ing, some tasty DX7 keys, and au­then­tic vo­cal st­ings to layer on top, and you’ve got a rather classy re­lease. VERDICT 8
