Mined & Forrest make their third appearance on Breakbeat Paradise Recordings and shortly after picking up their match ball, they dropped their huge Glitch Hop EP ‘Fire Back’! In total there are 6 tracks to get your hands on, four brand new ones from Mined & Forrest and two remixes from Mr. Ours and Crash Party.
Leading the way on this action-packed EP is a demonstration of the guys on point production skills as they serve up their glitchy rocker ‘The Big Mama’ that brings big brass stabs, Hip Hop vox and a vibe to make the party come alive. Following on is ‘Acting Like You Know’ and although there’s a noticeable drop in tempo on this one, it’s still a nasty piece of work thanks to the rock-influenced guitar, pitched vocals and heavy broken beats. ‘Gimme That Beat’ is a supreme slice of super cool Glitch Funk that’s gonna sound so damn sweet on those hazy, lazy summer afternoons. The final track from the duo is the title track of the EP and although it’s another slick Glitch Hop number thanks to the stunning vocal of iamLawn, it’s still got a decent bite and plenty in the tank should you choose to drop it for the dancefloor faithful.
The first of the equally heavy remixes comes from Mr. Ours and he flips ‘The Big Mama’ into a big bouncy-ball of a tune that’s big on upbeat Glitch Hop vibes. Crash Party bring things to an end with the second remix of ‘Acting Like You Know’ and acting like we know those guys do, they’ve given it the full beans with a tearout DnB spin that’ll create some proper carnage!
Mined & Forrest are up next for guestmix duties on BBP’s ‘Powehour’ radio show and their mix will be available on BBP’s Soundcloud very, very soon, so keep em peeled for more phat and funky beats coming your way.
