Toby Ross is certainly hot property right now and with a style perfectly suited to Nicky Blackmarket’s Kartoons, it was only a matter of time before we nabbed him for a 4 track EP.
Intro vibes a run with the title track ‘Musical Warfare’. With it’s moody opening and chopped up classic breaks, it sets the tone of the release perfectly and delivers something authentic and upfront at the same time. A perfect clash of roots and culture. ‘Right Now’ harks back to the glory days of jungle with its reggae inspired hooks and one shot vocal stabs however, Toby flexes his own 2021 vision in the mix with distorted bass and sublow drones to create the ultimate flaming cocktail.
‘All Sounds’ sends an audio salute to Rodigan from the off. Blending Amen beats, claxons and Ross’ signature short and choppy production can only mean one thing here - sonic devastation. Hold tight all sound system crew on this one!
Linking up with TEE for the final chapter as ‘Rudeboy’ signs off the EP with perfect form. One for the back of the room head nodders and everyone else who just wants to stick their head down, block out the lazers and immerse themselves in beats and bass.
