[LP] Stabilizer - Canine (Plastic Raygun)

Stabilizer - Canine – Plastic raygun

Long awaited debut LP from plastic rayguns prized asset - Canine is more than just a collection of singles, Stabilizer uses the opportunity to spread his classy production skills around the edges of the broken beat; tasting the flavours of hip hop, house and electro.

Album opnener ‘what it takes’ harks back to the days of early chemical brothers likewise ‘Nitzer’ peps up the chemical beats with a nitro break and catchy hooks. ‘One Ton Truck’ is reminiscient of the avalanches – quirky smile inducing samples, horizontal pianos and a seriously groovy hip hop backbeat.

There are lazy summer downbeat tunes to get you into the festival vibe (‘shakka’ and ‘downtip’), and are electro house-breaks stompers to get the Ibiza hardcore shaking. Unsurprisingly though it is when the breaks are combined with vocalists that the album shines. Unbreakable uses dynamo dresden’s vocalist to add an ethereal vocal to a chunky tune.

The standout track on the LP though is the gritty dub-enriched booty bumper that is ‘Bounce’. The magnificent MC Chickaboo provides one of her best contributions to the breakbeat scene with her changes in pitch, tenor and hooklines. Bounce is a confirmed dancefloor killer, and will make you shake it wherever you are.

Thanks Mike.

Everyone must believe me when I say that this album is a grower of massive proportions. After Stabilizer himself I've probably listened to this album more than anyone else on the planet. It just keeps getting better for me....

Eclectic and full of Stabilizer's brilliant production. It's a winner - you have my word...
