I’ve been waiting for this since I saw it make an early appearance on Drone’s Soundcloud a few months back. Why? Cos it’s brutal. Brutal like, well… a drone strike on a wedding party, and, as it’s finally out on January 5th backed with a heap of remixes, I thought I’d cast an eye over it and see what what was on offer.

Out now, Moony moves away from his usual more garage inspired sound and goes back to the earlier style that he displayed on his “Full Moon” EPs. There are a mighty 6 tracks on this EP, with the original song backed with 5 remixes courtesy of Notion, Lemzly Dale, Dubzta, P Jam, and Mr Dubz, which means there should be at least one or two remixes in here that you’ll rate.

With remixes provided by a stellar line-up of producers including the likes of Spooky, Moony, Flava D, and Mr Dubz original banger all on there, this is yet another EP off the Project Allout production line that deserves your attention.

avatars-000003129227-mvwjor-t500x500

When I spoke to Project Allout Records head honcho Skillzy a few weeks back, he told me that the label “have a lot to come”, and just a few days later, he backed that up by giving out “Project Allout Records – Volume 1”, a free zip file of 25 instrumentals that vary in style from pure grime bangers, UK garage inspired riddims, and, of course, a few trap/hip hop influenced tunes as well. I thought I’d run the rule over the whole lot and pick out the top 5 songs in the zip so that you can see just why it’s worth the download, so here they are in no particular order. Continue reading
