The Stanton Warriors' Punks Music label is definitely on a roll right now
Set up by Stanton Warriors over a decade ago as an outlet for their cheeky breaks bootlegs, Punks Music is now one of the biggest breakbeat labels around. But just lately, they seem to be hitting a particularly purple patch.
Last week, they dropped a certified monster of a tune in the form of Nixon's genre-hopping Subculture EP, and this week they're at it again. With its classic breakbeats, cavernous bass drops and ear-piercing stabs, Ubad owes a strong debt to rave anthems of yore, while on the flip, Protest Dirty ups the old skool ante even further with its one-finger piano riff, but features a hefty sub-bass growl that's 100 per cent up-to-date. Dancefloors will ignite, you mark our words!
Ravers of many persuasions should find a place in their hearts for these two tracks... and with another stormer from Plump DJs just around the corner, there doesn't look to be any let-up in quality from the Punks camp coming any time soon.
