To celebrate his latest release on Steve Lawler's renowned VIVa Limited imprint, we asked Ammo Avenue to join us with his own Hot Picks selection:
TIM TAYLOR - TWOGETHER
Just nasty. Always showcasing a different sound, this time Tim Taylor’s wicked sound design shows us a dark raw track, perfectly contrasted by melancholic vocals.
AMMO AVENUE - THAT’S OK
Already championed by Jamie Jones, Steve Lawler, Reelow and more, it’s always good to see what you envisioned inside your studio, working so well at the clubs. Swing on point for this groover driven by acid sounds.
JAMIE COINS - STILL FLEXIN’
True to my hip hop roots and early inspiration, it’s always good to see fresh and bouncy cuts. Jamie delivers a solid 6 min head-bumping tune.
DIZ (UK) - GO TIME
The vibe on this one is just fire. Been playing this one in most of my sets and the tension it builds up is just wild. Great work on making an instant classic sound!
CHINONEGRO - MY MOMENT
So great to see my brother from another mother delivering his mystic vibes on a wicked label like CR. That breakdown is simply crazy.
