A1. Keep It Up
Back by popular demand is DJ Crisps with his third solo contribution to the Time Is Now catalogue: the fierce 4-tracker which explores the many flavours of garage and justifies the Rotterdam producer’s ever-growing ubiquity in today’s UKG circuit.
Kicking off proceedings is “Keep It Up” – a high-octane speed garage banger, prepped with intervals of slamming reverse sweeps which carry their own rhythm. After “Alright’s” unique blend of old skool grime samples and diva-esque vocals which play in dialogue beneath a sharp two-step beat, “Today” strips things back a little with a modest bassline melody and ragga vocals. Finally, with pitched-up, syrup smooth vocal licks “Bounce” captures UKG at its most soulful.
