Ben Sims aka Ron Bacardi feels so very right landing on the excellent Bass Culture opening this three track release with the devastatingly hot, â€˜Rock Your Body’. You’ll need some quality bass bins to handle the production’s fierce low-end theory or be left feeling bruised by its crushing beats and dirty bass. There are even a few subtleties too as the meandering, haunting vocal line twists around the rhythm section, though not that many. â€˜First Effort’ works the beats into a tribal fury which eventually explode into a hint of classic Disco. Leaving the equally killer, â€˜The Money’ to end with more of a Disco twist this time shot across blistering hi-hats plus straight-up and relentless House Music kick drums.

Have to confess that I’m glad I given this a second listen otherwise I might have missed out on this records rugged beauty and hidden depths. At a shade over ten minutes long this is all about the groove which certainly hits you hard and heavy, but there are also a wealth of other layers to discover too, like the swirling ambience and fiery snare programming that underpin this highly impressive arrangement. The Malin GÃ©nie remix then ads a slinky bassline alongside insistent hi-hats and jazzy keys to give the track a fresh, swinging alternative.
