The first of 2 heavyweight Bushwacka! reissues, essential underground business right here, from the streets of London. Matthew B aka Bushwacka! is a longtime stalwart of the vast London scene, with a career that would make most crumble, he’s been at the top of his game for longer than most in the booth and behind the boards. Having presented this collabo with DJ Vorn back in 1995 on his own Plank Records imprint, it’s obvious that Bushwacka! is a studio genius, the mix, the engineering, everything about these records is top shelf. ‘No Smoke’ is ridiculously deep, the ‘Deep Dap Dap’ mix on side A is absolutely killer, rolling tranced-out house music of the highest order, just devastating, and when that breakbeat comes in it’s game over. This is it. On side B we have the ‘They’re Comin’ For Us’ mix, which is totally different, yet completely essential, more breakbeat heavy than it’s predecessor it’s another finely crafted bass-bin troubler, how do these records sound like they were made yesterday, yet they’re over 20 years old? Absolutely in the bag. Do yourself a favour, and cop one of these!
