Single Review: It's Not Right - 10 Rapid

If you are still not feeling Christmas at this point you may as well give up and, well, 10 Rapid just might help you forget all about the festivities. Following up on the rather infectious single 'Minor Riot' that we covered earlier this year comes 10 Rapid's new track 'It's Not Right'.

And it's a boisterous affair. If 'Minor Riot' reminded BlackPlastic of Justice then this latest track is Boys Noize, which is to say it's harder and totally uncompromising. Its five-and-a-half-minute length is a harsh lesson in wobbly basslines and tweaking acid but it certainly does the job and would get the floor moving. It lacks the defining structure that makes some of 10 Rapid's contemporaries, or even previous single 'Minor Riot', as ideal for home listening as dancefloor fodder but it is certainly likely to get a dancefloor moving.

'It's Not Right' is available now, with the original mix on Juno, the Streetlife Rough Mix on Beatport and both the Mixdown 100 Remix and the Streetlife Smooth Remix on iTunes.

Single Review: Minor Riot - 10 Rapid

Having recently got props from Evil Nine and Streetlife DJs you might know what to expect from 10 Rapid, and you'd probably be right...

'Minor Riot' is a dirty little hand grenade of a track.  With horror movie synth strings and a lovely little bass line that builds and builds to the crescendo it's all quite reminiscent of Justice's 'Phantom', if with a little more subtlety.  It's also clearly been built for the dancefloor, with the kind of pacing that will slot right into the build-up of many a DJ's set.  The beauty of this kind of track is that it is pretty much genre-less, happy to slot right into a breaks set but just as happy within the kind of nasty house set that the likes of Adam Freeland now tends to make.

'Minor Riot' is out now over at Beatport.

Also worth checking out is 10 Rapid's mix of Caged Baby's track 'Forced'.  It's a nice, messy little track and there's a fantastic bassline that breaks through every now and then, sidelining the vocals before they gradually filter back in.  It's a catchy track and shows that 10 Rapid can work with vocals and definitely builds on the original.
