Artist: Ego Scene ft.Dj Lighta
Title: Hold On/Aiden's Tune
Format: 12"
Label: Horrific (@)
Rated: *****
After the banging blast-off by the signature of Notthingham-based bigwigs of dnb scene like Julian "Dramatic" Flowers and James "Dbaudio" Maltby, Dj Jess, the go-getter behind the newborn vinyl-only dnb label that has been established in Bethnal Green, London, mde up his mind in order to keep on flying high by putting the second Horrific knock in the hands of another bicephalous signature, the one from Mancunian Dj Lighta and Ego Scene. These guys from the vibrant Machester, which is gradually becoming the real lighthouse of dance music in UK, radiate a pleasing liquid tune, "Hold On", by blending warming tones, a booming bassline, an hypnotic female vocal sample and housey shimmering clot of piano and synth, but the real surprise is lying on the flipside, where they easily bring old school jungle as well as some T(ips)'N'T(ricks) from 90ies rave-breakcore scene such as splashing hi-hats, cartoon-like chipmunk voices and other funny mnemonics over a spotless Amen break on the nice "Aiden's Tune".
