"Hanuman and Atki2's (aka Monkey Steak) Steak House Imprint will be the label to watch in the next 12 months. Steak House are about to unleash a devastating series of 12"s of pure carnival fire from both established and up and coming producers. STEAK 001 brings together the hottest Global Bass talent from the Iberian Peninsula: Octa Push and Mr Gasparov. Mr Gasparov - '1975.' Mr Gasparov is Lisbon's premier purveyor of intelligent bass music. Using graphics tablets, midi controllers and a synth made from an old McDonalds till point, Mr Gasparov makes intricate, bass heavy dub techno/two step crossovers that will destroy any dancefloor with enough detail to keep the experimental heads' attention. '1975' is a slow build 2step workout with skittery beats and thumping sub that delivers in all the right places. Think El-B meets Aphex Twin under a tropical sky. Support from Scuba, Emma Warren, Freak Camp, Conspira. Octa Push - 'Ai Nadia' & 'Laika Likes It.' Octa Push were formed when Portuguese bass music pioneer Conspira challenged producers Mushug and Dizzycutter to join forces and create a totally live dance music project. Their unique fusion of Bashment, U.K. garage and dubstep with other elements like afrobeat and techno has put them at the forefront of the Iberian electronic music scene with explosive performances at places like Sonar, Glade and Fabric. 'Ai Nadia' is a throbbing afro-step monster. Shuddering sub bass and chanted vocals collide to create something very special indeed. 'Laika Likes It' combines sweet female vocals, broken garage beats, and pounding bass to devastating effect. This is a tune firmly for the hips. Support from Buraka Som Sistema, TRG, Jahcoozi, Ghislain Poirier, Ben UFO, Cardopusher, BokBok, Reso, Sinden, Sub Swara."
