My first taste of Ill Blu came on that Kode 9 mix a couple of weeks back and I've got to say that I was pretty impressed by what I heard. Most of what's been branded 'UK funky' so far has been a tad ropey in my opinion but these two bring a little bit of toughness to the highly danceable broth with their sharp drum sound that hits as hard as it swings. There's also a bit of that ubiquitous-of-late South African DJ Mujava thing going on too, particularly in the simplicity of the melody. It's a catchy one, for sure. The flip goes for the conga approach, applying different sounds and a more prominently placed sub-bass to what is fundamentally pretty much the exact same beat with the result a more subtle but still highly pleasing variation. Good shit.
