Savage Rehab – 4WARD EP [V Recordings]
Posted by Adam on 29th March 2013
After releases from household names such as Serum, Artificial Intelligence and more recently David Boomah, V Recordings keep it moving with a slick release from Savage Rehab.
After a recommendation from Roni Size lead to their debut release on V Records in 2010 Savage Rehab continued to push forward, quickly gaining a following for their versatile production style. Last year’s 360 Degree EP on Liquid V saw the UK-based production team go up a notch – and now the pair are set to go one better with the stunning 4Ward EP. Making the jump to V Records with ease the 4Ward EP sees Savage Rehab turn their hand to all sides of the bass spectrum.
Kicking off with the funk-filled Grooves of Neck Funk complete with soulful samples, a rumbling bassline and rilling drums Savage Rehab keep things with the minimal Rare Groove. Dominated by an old-school bassline, Rare Groove see’s the old school vibes in full effect, whilst Rise Up takes things on a more tribal front. Wrapping up the EP is Step Inside, a sub bass driven track with carefully placed MCing effortlessly striding over the top. Touching on styles throughout the bass music spectrum, the 4ward EP sees Savage Rehab and V show their versatility once again.
