Crystal Culture, a stellar new London-based imprint co-ordinated by rising star Pedro 123 and Get Some's Bobby Pecotic, today celebrates it's debut release in the form of a 4-track monster from Bristol's 'Stuff'. Entitled 'Gun Ho', the EP features remixes from Liminal Sounds' Elsewhere and label head Pedro as well as 'Spider', a jump-up, synth heavy club joint full of dance floor swagger.
Title-track 'Gun Ho' is where Stuff really sings though. Rugged, thugged-out bass carries relentless momentum and energy, with classic vocal chops and whistles bringing the track firmly into 'club banger' territory; reminiscent of some of AC Slater's party joints, it is unashamedly good fun.
Pedro's remix is further evidence of his undoubted talent on the buttons, taking the original down less raucous routes, working a refined and intricate 2-step groove to good effect whilst Elsewhere explores a more stripped back, guttural approach that packs plenty of punch.
The verdict? A great start to life as a label.
'Gun Ho' is out today on Crystal Culture and available from all good online outlets.
