New Release: Serial Killaz Feat. Ragga Twins - Duppy Sound EP

The Ragga Twins have been consistently involved in the underground dance music scene way before the birth of jungle so it’s no surprise that once again they are dropping some wicked tunes back to back with Serial Killaz. Two original microphone pioneers combined with two legendary jungle producers equals one heavyweight selection from the Serial Killaz offshoot label, Street Life.

Deman Rocker and Flinty Badman fling down an array of uplifting, high energy bars throughout which are complemented by that true jungle sound that only the Serial Killaz camp can bring.

Setting the pace from the off with the original lick of ‘Duppy Sound’. Driven by The Ragga Twins, it’s a mixture of rough and tough reggae fueled jungle and summertime vibes - perfect for both those rare real jungle events and ram jammed festivals. Some may notice the quirky time stretched vocals which pay a special dedication to that well known Akai sampler that was used more than a few times in the early 90’s.

The full vocal version of the dancehall tearout mix slams the door tightly shut on the EP and fires from all cylinders to maximum effect. Bringing that early 2000’s vibe into 2017 with total devastation. Crunching snares, aggressive bass and with the addition of reworked vocals from The Ragga Twins, it takes the original and flips it on it’s head.

Not only are you getting the full vocal version of this wicked tune and the dancefloor tearout mix but the instrumentals are also included with the EP. Perfect for dropping in and out alongside another slammer from the virtual record box.

When Serial Killaz and Ragga Twins link up, the vibes are off the chain!

Upgrade - You Ain't Well (Dominator Remix) Free Download

You may or may not know that a few months ago the scene lost a major talent, and we lost a fantastic friend and producer; Neil Aldred aka Dominator.

Originally planned as part of a remix ep, it was one of Neil's last wishes that we got his amazing remix of Upgrade's equally amazing "You Ain't Well" out on the streets, and so that is what we have done.

We have set it as a free download but you can pay whatever amount you want. All the profits will go to his family, so if you can please spare whatever money you have, it would be greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to share this link on all your profiles and pages, the more people that see it the better. Let's keep his spirit alive through the music that he blessed us with.

Click here to go to the download page.

Many thanks.

New Release: Vital Elements - Pipes Of Thunder EP

Vital Elements, otherwise known as one half of the deadly Serial Killaz duo has been incredibly busy as of late. With multiple studio projects on the go as well as running one of the biggest labels on the circuit it’s a wonder he’s managed to finish this monster EP.

Not only has he finished it, he’s produced probably one of his best pieces of work to date with an incredibly versatile bag of tracks.

‘Pipes of Thunder’ lulls you into a false sense of security by the half time r’n’b swing step loop, however, it’s not long before sweeping classic breakbeats and deep vocal samples collide and the stand out horn blasts, making it pretty clear that the track means business. If there ever was a tune to kick off a set that shows to the crowd (and the DJ previous) that you mean business, then this is, without a doubt the one. Danger from the first blast of the horn.

Rebooting that classic Serial Killaz silky smooth sound with ‘Jump & Twist’ featuring one hell of a feel good breakbeat arrangement that rides alongside the gritty bassline in such as fashion that even the hard-nosed ravers would crack an approving smile.

Sampling mastery combined with major influences from 1996, Vital Elements really brings things home with ‘Where You At’. A fine mix of vibes from the glory days of jump up and everything that’s positive about modern bouncy drum and bass. Easily reloaded time and time again and for those who experienced it first hand, you’re going to beg for this to be pressed to vinyl.

Stepping things into a different direction, ‘72’ is a full on metallic blast of wobbling bass drones, hard hitting stabs and rough breakbeats. The stand out snare really drives this tune into another dimension and combined with reverberating bass tones, it’s one hell of a monster.

‘Yard Man’ is another up-tempo dancefloor monster that’s guaranteed to get things moving. Its breakbeat arrangement has something really quirky about it that instantly drives the track that little bit harder, especially during the half step arrangement.

Vocal talents from Ena Jules shine bright on ‘Are You Loose’ which bring a welcome slice of variety to this EP. It clearly demonstrates versatility and experience from Vital Elements who is certainly no stranger to delve into various aspects of the drum and bass genre.

Wrapping things up in fine style with ‘Waiting So Long’ featuring the vocal talents of Jenni Bellestar Matthias, song writing by Eugenie Matthias (The Belle Stars, Paul Weller and Adrian Sherwood among others) and trumpet playing by Duncan Mackay (Primal Scream, Tom Jones, Tina Turner, The Chemical Brothers and many more). This one is ideal for sound system crews, dance floor addicts and those who love reggae flavoured drum and bass vibes.

A great EP from Vital Elements that really proves that you can still create an anthem in drum and bass that lasts longer than 5 minutes. ‘Pipes of Thunder’ is going to be sitting in your virtual record box for a long, long time! Anthem business.

Exclusively on the Serial Killaz shop for one week before general release.
