The PAR gang aren’t shy about introducing new talent and they’ve struck gold again
Burt Cope has been on our radar a long time, releasing consistently good music through free download platforms such as Pack London, Articulate Sound and Gassed Bristol to name a few and it’s no surprise to us he’s been picked up by scene heavyweights, Project Allout Records.
PAR have a good track history with bringing through fresh talent, most notably recently with Nadine’s debut EP, ‘Motions’, and this latest attempt looks to have the potential to be, at the very least, as successful.
The EP itself, ‘Call My Name’ contains 4 original tracks from Burt that consist of what is starting to be his signature sound – strong influences of old school Bassline and flashes of UKG blended together to create a more modern in keeping with the sound of today’s Bassline.
The title track consists of catchy vocals and pads, big shuffling 4×4 drums, wobbly basslines and fleeting dub effects. The breakdown is inspired, drafting in old school drum breaks.
The rest of the EP carries on in similar fashion with ‘Jank’ sampling an AJ Tracey song in a way that is gonna result in instant wheelups up and down the country. ‘Fiya’ draws yet more influence from the old school with dusty stabs and ragga samples over the top of a squelching bassline. Rounding things off, ‘Rude Boi’ is another wobbler based around clever use of the main vocal.
