New Release: Kastro & Scudd - LDN Ting

London certainly doesn’t need any long winded introduction as to its importance in the drum and bass scene and it’s no surprise that Kastro and Scudd chose to use inspiration from our legendary city for their first EP for Serial Killaz.

The title track ‘LDN TING’ reeks of intensity. If you were lucky enough to visit The End, imagine this going off at 2am next to a gang of gas and lighter equipped corner creepers. Its indestructible bassline riffs coincide perfectly with tough breaks, rolling percussion and a sneaky one liner vocal.

‘Ease Out’ takes a familiar and well loved stance, easily fitting into the Serial Killaz back catalogue. It’s flipped out, relaxed vibes of the intro combine perfectly with the rubberband style bass that certainly takes inspiration from vibes of an era gone by.

If there ever was a reason to kick back and skank out then the half step vibes of ‘Something About You’ is probably your one stop shop of 2019 and beyond. Showing their versatility in numbers here, Kastro and Scudd fire out a right old grumpy bastard of a tune with muddy beats, bass and a cheeky little arpeggiated riff.

Kastro and Scudd split into two for ‘Who We Are’ and ‘Forever’ respectfully. The first being a vocal led box of tricks, initial assumptions bring forth a commercial dancefloor track but that’s certainly far from the truth after the breakdown. Scudd takes the end of the EP and what a way to finish. ‘Forever’ jumps on the vibe of recent months with a bouncy house organ riff and skippy breakbeats.

A clever, well respected package that’s a fine tribute to the many genres, styles and flavours of our capital city. No ramping. Newcastle crew representing hard.

New Release: Dez - Dub Organizer EP

Dez and Serial Killaz have a great history together although he’s been slightly absent from our label for a while now. He’s like that long lost uncle who now and again turns up out of nowhere laden with dubplates which is exactly the kind of relative we like! Dez certainly lived up to expectations this time around with a weighty selection of 4 upfront jungle smashers for his ‘Dub Organizer’ EP.

Laced with Rodigan vocal shots and covered in reggae hooks, the lead tune ‘Dubplate’ takes a normal sub bass and reduces the threshold to below sea level. You would think with this level of low end Dez has some kind of superhuman hearing - that or a few SubPac’s strapped to his chest!

The title track ‘Dub Organizer’ rolls out huge chunks of beats, bass and vocals following the EPs theme of utter speaker devastation. ‘Shine Eye Girl’ throws out a lovely short of breath snare that perfectly slaps heads all over the dance. It also breaks through the mix to perfection, adding a certainly flair to the rumbling low end bass.

Locking things off with ‘Sound System’. A tune quite dissimilar to the previous 3 yet not out of place as you may be assuming. Technical switches in abundance and one potentially aimed as the crews taking it that little bit easier. We rollin’.

Exclusive copies now available on the Serial Killaz shop.

New Release: T>I & Saxxon - Sundown EP

T>I and Saxxon combine forces and team up with foundation label Serial Killaz to bring you one hell of a throwback EP. These highly anticipated battle weapons have been waiting for the exact time to launch and that time is now..

The title track ‘Sundown’ and ‘11:55’ have a ton of funk injected into them and no doubt take inspiration from the many big tunes of the golden era of jump up. This is a big bonus and certainly not one single fog horn in earshot.

From the immense mid 90’s vibes of ‘Tracker’ to ‘Silent Earth’ and it's a bucket load of wobble bass, this EP really does demonstrate both producers versatility on the buttons.

What you get here from both T>I and Saxxon is their history and roots wrapped up into one tidy package and who better than to represent them than the Serial Killaz label. A junglist match made by the bass bin.
