Horsepower Productions To the Rescue

London trio Horsepower Productions seems to occupy a unique space in the UK garage scene where they can make whatever they want and not get flak for it. This is a good thing, as Horsepower's second full-length, To The Rescue, is in a genre by itself. I'd like to call it dripcore, as the constant between the ten tracks is oozing, dubbed-out Depth Charge-style bass, which snakes its way through bumpy drums, beating congas and curious African and Middle-Eastern touches. This is real jungle music-of the Heart of Darkness variety-but while tracks like "Golden Nugget" and "Synbad" could shake backsides, To The Rescue isn't purpose-built for the two-step dancefloor. Rather, place yourself between the bass speakers, smoke ten spliffs, and take your brain to another dimension.
