Magnum - All Over Me

Magnum
All Over Me EP
92 POINTS

Following the huge viral success of Boiler Room anthem, Mr.67, burgeoning Brixton-based imprint 92 Points deliver a barrage of beastly 808 flavours from Puerto Rican newcomer Magnum, with French Fries on remix duty.

Title track All Over Me unfolds with a mesmerising array of off-key synth stabs and discordant arpeggiators, coupled with the vocal samples of a severely anguished woman. All at once, those synths drop away to reveal a tough snare-heavy drum pattern and dancehall-esque swing - one that’s made this a true club favourite in recent weeks. The second drop’s brutal growling bassline show Magnum’s ability to create militant tracks that are both emotive and destructive. 

Dense takes much the same approach, kicking off with a pitched-down amen break and hauntingly beautiful pads made up of layered and harmonised incantations, before stealthily mutating into a weighty jungle-tinged roller. But it’s the return of the spellbinding melody that makes this track the pick of the lot and one that’s guaranteed to stick in your head. Parisian hybrid-house favourite French Fries maintains most of the original’s brooding spirit in his remix, stripping it down to a half-step grime instrumental, complete with sirens and a bassline straight outta Pulse X.

With distinct sounds of ‘90s d&b and jungle euphoria, Magnum has managed to fuse an interesting combination of influences together, with a distinctive touch of his own, into a strong collection of futuristic bass-heavy music. Another top release for the promising South London label.
