It’s the return of that Kid Sublime to Dopeness Galore with the excellent 12″ The Return Of The Basehead brandishing the producer’s most jacking material to date! We kind of feel Kid Sublime gets passed over when discussing Amsterdam’s enduring club music heritage and this four track release should turn the heads of those that don’t know. Early Masters at Work, Mike Dunn and Moodymann are offered up as reference points for the four tracks here and it’s a comparison that rings true, with the bumping of «Takin’ Me Over» a real highlight. A killer vocal hook and an equally deadly string sample diced up from the Psycho OST show the Kid’s edit chops are in good form and crucially the track’s complemented by a sublime groove. The string heavy «World Tour» hits the spot too, whilst «Keep On» sounds positively possessed when you pitch it up a few notches. Big tip!
