Review: Longstanding Finnish pair Aeon Four serve up never less than crucial drum & bass weaponry on the always vital Finnish label Straight Up Breakbeat. As plays the pair explore a range of different moods and grooves within a contemporary drum & bass framework. Opener 'Tremor' is a floaty light groove that is filled with airy hi hats to start, then dark and heavy bass arrives later on. There is a real raw heart-of-the-rave intensity to 'Reflector Dub' and its hardcore breaks, then 'Intercept' manages to pair celestial keys and lush chords with another drilling riddim that pins you to planet earth. Closer 'Hold Water' is a fun closer with a hefty low end wobble.

Review: It's not so grim up north... Straight Up Breakbeat dig deep into the archives and tell the not-so-well known tale of Finland's long-standing, deep-running drum & bass scene. With roots that go right back to the mid-90s with the likes of Samuel & Nasley (who famously didn't release any of their material - until now), the Nordic country has consistently represented and these are the most important people who pushed it in those formative days; from the raw funk and disco feels of Dharma's 'Starts Up Above' to the gnarled mentasms and Headzy rush of Muffler's 'It's The Way' via the acid psychosis of longtime Loxy collaborator Resound's 'Ghetto Funk', it's a unique insight into one of drum & bass's most northern outposts.
