Last year Leon Atter made his debut as Xtra Brux on CoOp's third "Selectors Assemble" compilation, following it up earlier this year with a track on Dance Regular's debut EP. Here he returns to the latter label with his first solo EP. First up is "Dubz 4 Dancerz", a deliciously dirty fusion of heavy, garage-style bass, crunchy broken beats and sweaty vocal snippets. It's followed by the similarly inclined "I Need U", which sounds like the kind of weighty, loose-limbed roller that we can imagine Toddla T dropping, and the UKG/broken beat fusion of "Hush", whose cut-up vocal snippets doff a cap to Todd Edwards. To round things off Atter reaches for the wobble bass and organ stabs with great success on "Deep Down Inside".
