"Lisbon-based Octa Push are the newest recruits on the Iberian label and here they come up with the goods on this very distinctive international flavoured 3-tracker - following their debut vinyl release on Soul Jazz Records' Stepper's Delight 2 compilation. Having blown up the Red Bull Stage at this year's Sonar in Barcelona and wowed people at Fabric and the Glade Festival with their unique flow; which sees them combine the Portuguese and African sound spliced with elements of UK garage, dancehall and techno. Both 'Deixa' with Toni Clean, resident in Portugal and from the Cabo Verde Isles, and 'Baila Mundo,' with the legendary MC Zulu and his distinctive randomized dance hall cadence, show Octa Push as accomplished producers - having already remixed the likes of Buraka Som Sistema, Debruit, Mochipet and DJ Znobia, to name a few - and skilled at using original vocals over their bass line driving funky beats; whilst 'Dubshh' is a marvelous bustling and punchy instrumental rub perfectly illustrating their bass and groove style. All three tunes are sure players and seem destined to bring the Portuguese style to a growing fan base and providing Iberian with yet another non-UK produced bass continuum vibe."
