PBR StreetgangShade EP
Closely following strong releases on both Futureboogie and Craig Richards’s Ship To Shore label this summer, PBR Streetgang make their debut on Crosstown Rebels with ‘Shade’, a collection of music that proves there is no stopping the UK duo right now.
‘Shade’ is a heavy bass-driven beast of a track complete with an incessant key line and spun-out spoken word samples that’s been going down rather well, whilst ‘Reading’ is a more hedonistic affair, infectious as hell as twice a groovy. On the flip I:Cube delivers a break-feast old school synth-stab-laden take on ‘Shade’ to maximum effect!
PBR Streetgang are Bonar Bradberry and Tom Thorpe, with a shared history that began in 2003 and swept through residencies at We Love Space Ibiza and Asylum in Leeds, a string of acclaimed remixes and originals for their friends at 2020 Vision, Futureboogie, and Hot Creations, remixes for Bryan Ferry, tours to Japan, USA and Brazil, a month long residency on Rinse FM and still finding time for enjoyment in between.
Prolific French producer I:Cube steps up to remix ‘Shade’, esteemed for his work on Versatile Records and releasing for over two decades. His brilliant take on the original perfectly compliments this great EP!
