New Release: Salaryman and Veak - On Fire EP

Salaryman & Veak launch into a hyper jungle state with the much anticipated Serial Killaz release of the ‘On Fire’ EP. Reggae influences aplenty with enough dub fx, lazer shots and reverb soaked vocals to force feed even the most resistant junglist. This package is as roughneck as them come and a real battle between two foundation producers.

Intro business with ‘Be Careful’, originally released by Salaryman via Serial Killaz in 2015. This time around Veak has taken the production state to another level with crushing Amen breakbeats, reworked vocal programming and much more. If you liked the original, you’re going to love this.

‘Champion’ sends lick shots across all 4 corners of the dance, blazing fire from the word go and combining some really well known samples with hectic drum programming, vocal chops and rumbling basslines.

Not content with a single offering of ‘Champion’, Salaryman brings forth the relick to end all relicks. A solid take on the original whilst offering what some may say as a B side equivalent. It’s certainly got a rougher edge with an abundance of mashed up breakbeats and is one hard as nails track.

Salaryman & Veak team up, bringing with them a few cans of petrol to add to their sampler which in turn, creates ‘On Fire’. Imagine slicing up that legendary Mad Skillz vocal, twisting and bending it into a cheese grater and you’re pretty much on point with the outcome. Mind bending arrangements combined with a devastating kick drum that makes up everything you need for a bassline.

‘Why Did You Leave Me’ finalises this excellent offering from Serial Killaz. It’s another remix from Veak that presents itself as one hell of a fine festival anthem. Sunshine licks, killer vocals and an abundance of feel good vibes (despite the title!). Finishing the EP off in real style.

This whole EP was made for the original Jungle Fever days. Just pause, rewind and come again.

New Release: Upgrade - Bad Frequencies EP

Upgrade is back in the Serial Killaz camp with some certified heat for 2018 in the form of the Bad Frequencies EP. If you thought the Temper Tantrum EP from 2017 was big, this forthcoming release really is on another level.

Straight from the word go Upgrade releases a hailstorm of beats and bass in the form of the EP’s title track ‘Bad Frequencies’. Distorted and filtered out low end combined with those snappy drum patterns you instantly expect from this talented producer provide the perfect expectation for what’s in store.

‘Steel Drums’ really requires no introduction as it’s currently being caned by everyone on dub. Synthesized stabs provide some real energy here and with a roaring drop it’s a no holds barred rush of disjointed basslines and uptempo jump up flavours that really takes no prisoners.

‘Spit it Out’ consistently causes all kind of shoe throwing activities and it’s of no surprise as to why. Everything about this track screams of Upgrades distinctive style and flair, from the way it’s imminent crescendo slaps you around the face to the crushing bass drop. Ruthless.

‘Consciousness’ wraps haunting stuttering vocal samples around wonkey breakbeats which effortlessly combine with rumbling basslines and vicious stabs.

Finishing off proceedings and switching the pace in the form of ‘Get Excited’, a track that when presented in the mix, will no doubt accelerate vibes in the dance!

Riddled with signature sounds, this EP from Upgrade contains 5 killer cuts of fresh drum and bass ideally aimed at the jam packed dance floor and with the backing of the legendary Serial Killaz label, this release is set to do bits. Big fucking bits!

New Release: Ozma - The Adventure EP

Fresh out of Russia, Ozma delivers a action packed EP to the Serial Killaz camp. With a total of 5 upfront tracks, it's a big offering to DJs who play across the board. If you like your drum and bass fused between sub genres then this really is one big sonic adventure for your ears.

Ozma's EP kicks off with a slab of synth chords which some may reflect on being very 'Piper'. The progressive element of this tune really does take effect from the first beat and it's dynamic range is something else.

Who would have thought that hip hop vocals, grunge and drum and bass would fuse together so well? Well in the case of 'University' it sure is a winning combination. Knock your block off bass combined with a real stick in the mud breakbeat selection provides the ultimate chemistry here.

The sounds of 'Iron Hammer' resonate hard through the speaker box as this tough, rough and ready tune smacks 7 shades of bass across the dancefloor. It's mid section structure change will knock even then most experienced MC in the game momentarily. Drumstep meets industrial drum and bass.

'Hybrid' is exactly that, a mixture of styles and flavours that combine into one almighty wallop of funk.

Finishing up the EP 'Plutonium' does a fine job at scattering wide eyed ravers pupils into oblivion with it's hectic, drum fueled supersonic bass riffs. A high octane ride into the world of Ozma and his wild imagination.

Something a little different from the Serial Killaz camp and maybe a sign for future releases. Drum and bass really is a worldwide offering and with a bucket load of influences from across the border, this EP really does show how far we have come since the early days of the scene being locked down.
