Fantastic under the radar 10" that dates back to 2007 and packs some serious bass weight.
A-side is home to "Stand Up Strong" from CounterAction Warriors which is a super tough slice of UK roots with a wicked stripped back driving bassline that really shines through on the excellent dub and gives the whole thing a pleasingly distinctive post-punk feel. Give it a listen - it's seriously good!
Flip it over and the tempo increases as we head into steppers territory. However this is no standard run-of-the-mill steppers business. Things get seriously wild here with some Tubby-esque mixing desk manipulation combined with influences from the broader electronic music spectrum resulting in a sounds that sits somewhere between steppers, UK funky and techno. In other words, it's brilliant.
Top 10". Highly recommended.
Unplayed stock copies of the original 2007 release.
