This long anticipated debut EP from Domino Effect Records head honcho’s S. Jay & Ostertag has been months in the making and finally lands as DEFECT004. The EP introduces itself with a heavy original production ‘Have You’ focusing on the huge contrast of bass when it drops.. Beginning as they mean to go on, the following 3 productions feature a carefully selected choice of other Domino artists, including Filthy Rich, Kyle Watson & A. Lister.
‘Smoking Mirrors’ is another hard hitting garage lick with big reese basses and skanking rhythms, and these boys know how to provide just that, following that is a collaboration with South African bass pioneer Kyle Watson, ‘Let Me Down’ splits their 2 styles right down the middle as Kyle’s touches become apparent as soon as the track hits full flow… The epic breakdown is ear-grabbing and full of energy.
Finally, the last track with A. Lister, provides a great way to close the EP off, ‘Giving Me’ is another housey production with trademark A. Lister drums and grooving percussive elements to keep the feet moving from start to finish. Enjoy this great release from Domino Effect Records, an imprint that is fast becoming one of the most exciting labels in the UK this year.
