"This heavyweight release from Narco.Hz features three of the Bay Area's finest producers with two superb tracks. Both selections are rich in musicality and dance-floor intensity, with top-notch production. On the A-side is 'Wind Up,' DJunya's latest dubwise rumbler. Punctuated with half-step snares and persistent bass wobbles, 'Wind Up' is a mélange of reggae horns and processed skanks, all presented with an atmospheric dub treatment. DJunya's tracks are consistently thoughtful productions, often deriving their musical sensibility by blending strong, interesting reggae elements with deep grinding basses and great dubstep beats. 'Wind Up' is no exception. 'The Tide,' DJ G and Antiserum's latest opus, is a powerful track, epic in scope, and conceptual in nature. From its digi-reggae intro, 'The Tide' drops into a very strong (dare i say anthemic?) synth melody with strong supporting bass work. As the track rolls on, the bass work is greatly expanded upon, with interesting counterpoint elements. The break re-introduces the soaring melody line, which contributes to a compelling build and exciting second drop. 'The Tide' is masterfully produced and wonderfully composed."
