The drums, my God the drums on this are wild! US Alliance was yet another production from Dem 2, an alias that was infrequently used and mostly seemed to reference the duo’s smoother, sleeker original productions. “All I Know” is soulful but chunky in all the right places, slinky and choppy, pitch friendly and the percussion sounds like a fucking Army expeditionary force drum corps tap dancing on your head. “Da Grunge” mix is frequently cited by Grime and modern UK Garage-influenced producers as a key inspiration. The NYSC Dub (for “New York Soundclash”) could still lead and anchor a Deep House set in any city in Europe or North America circa 2017.
