Lowriderz - Back To Business EP

‘Back’ is one dangerous lead to this EP that would no doubt take anything in its path and give it a good bashing. You know the vocal sample already and wrapping this around a single sine wave is the perfect complement alongside the regular breakbeat switches.

Distant Future and Steppa Style link up for the ride on ‘Dub Stye’ and ‘No Shop Talk’ respectively. Both feature heavy ‘96 influences with pitch bent basslines, tons of vocal shots and bubbling beats that will have you sticking flyers from the past all over your bedroom, flicking up a lighter and trying to invent a time machine.

‘Dubplate’ and ‘Stop’ could have been a double A side release and their stark variations compliment each other perfectly. On one hand you have a tough roller with a singalong style riff. The flip, more of a flexed out riddim, however, both contain that all important Serial Killaz element. Original roots and foundation.

The flavour for 2020 is without a doubt full circle from the mid 90’s and if Lowriderz have anything to do with it, long may it continue.

New Release: Exile & Mark XTC - Back 2 The New Skool EP

Mark XTC and Exile are back at it again with their New Skool EP series. The first EP featured one of the biggest drum and bass anthems of the year ‘Take Me Away’ which is still shelling down raves across the world so expect big things from the second instalment.

‘Soothes My Soul’... you don’t even need a prompt regarding this vocal. Think early happy hardcore meets Serial Killaz style upfront jungle and you’re onto a winner here. If Slipmatt isn’t playing this in 2030 then... I’m sure he will be. A perfect example of how to cross over genres and make it work. What next, event promoters bringing back multiple genres in one arena? We can but dream.

Late 90’s house vibes and some clever time stretching feature on ‘Burning Up’. Certainly more of a tribute than a bootleg, this one kicks off with some lovely pad work, one hell of an iconic vocal and unexpected grotty basslines. It works well and delivers a solid punch in the gut and some hands in the air moments all at once. Magical.

If acid vibes are your thing then ‘Morse Code’ would certainly fit into a clash between bleeps and drum and bass. Marc and Exile fired up their MC-3030 for this one, circuit bent the hell out of it and added a vacuum bass motor for fun.

It’s no doubt the intro of ‘Oh Yeah’ harks back to the good old days of Mark XTC’s production career with superb breakbeats and memorable vocal stabs. It’s not only a love letter to ‘95 but a shout to 2020 in respect of the styles and flavours yet to come. Twisted basslines come to do serious damage here so watch your sub levels.

New Release: Mozey - The Lady Killaz EP

Mozey is on fire right now and with a string of pending releases it’s no wonder he’s back at Serial Killaz HQ with another batch of fully stocked rounds, a ton of unreleased dubs and a few guests along the way.

Taking hardstep into 2020 with ‘Weapon of War’ where the main riff goes from -2 on the octave scale right up to plus 4. Pushing boundaries, fighting the bad guys and flinging down all kinds of indirects. Ultra combo at it’s finest. No doubt fans of Call of Duty will appreciate the various mentions of the enemy melting P-90.

Title track ‘Lady Killaz’ is nothing short of a production masterclass. Mozey licks off shots with classic r’n’b vocals, crisp breakbeats and hammer drone bass notes. Time travel reinvented, vibes from the past, production from the future.

Talking of Lady Killaz and up steps Gino to the mixing desk followed closely by The Ragga Twins who all join forces with Mozey for ‘Oh God’. An instant lick of the Gino sound does wonders for the strength of the track and additional brute force supplied by RTC is an obvious welcome. Tough drums combined with gut wrenching bass and expect lyrical delivery are certainly the order of the day here.

Latin vibes a run in ‘Lapa Drums’ and drums are certainly what you get here. It’s a bit of a theme for this EP but in all seriousness, this is how Mozey produces his breakbeats. Rough, tough and dangerous in ever sense of the word. If the drums don’t get you, the militant low end will.
