Hailing up from Vancouver, rude-bwoy producer Jay Tripwire links up with the Worship family to debut his awaited "Fever" EP. With a slew of records out on various labels such as Tango, Big Chief, Swag and Fine Funk among others, Jay Is a leading player in today's dub house sound.
A1. The long side cut features crisp driving drums, a sub-bass line that creeps in like some fine bio, rippling synths stabs and of course the dub factor working the vocal drops.
B1. This features chunkier drums, a quirky and catchy synth line, and yes, bass. Mr. Tripwire takes his time giving it to the massive, opting to break it down first, but then unleashes a gritty and deep b-line that opens up the track.
B2. This is the track the Worship crew has been wheeling up. All the elements are there, with an extra dosage of dub. A versatile mix, this track works the big floors yet doesn't overpower dem tight and sweaty dances.
