New Release: Leaf - Pick n Mix EP Part 2

It’s as if Leaf never left the Serial Killaz convenience store as he’s back with the second part in the Pick ‘n’ Mix series quicker than you can devour a tub of strawberry squashy lips!

Straight in with the reggae infused vibes, ‘Jah’ is a sound system man's dream with growling, ferocious bass stabs which would lick down any of the competition. It’s also perfect for the summer festival season and mucky swamp dancing - basically one and the same.

Swapping the £2 cup for the extra large £5 business comes in the form of ‘Riddim’. Spooky pads and lick shots provide the perfect platform for that ever effective Leaf bass to wrap itself around your ears and coax you into a state of frantic shaking and trainer shuffling.

Fans of that 4/4 steppy minimalist vibe will adore ‘Get Down’ with it’s cheeky one two flavour and bouncing bass. If you’re a DJ it will no doubt grace a set or two and if you’re an MC .. even better as it’s a perfect slab of lyric friendly vibes. Either way, Leaf has you covered.

‘Tosh’ takes a ton of influence from one of the originators of the reggae scene and certainly pays respect in a fitting way. Hitting that distort button firmly in the middle, this one has fuzzy overtones aplenty and enough wallop to knock over a fully geared up riot squad.

Finishing the second part of the EP off with ‘Inner Connected’ Leaf shows his versatility with a downtempo, smokers riddim that totally changes direction. Keeping within the Serial Killaz footprint but switching that pick ‘n’ mix cup on it’s head, down the road, across the pond and into a tower block a couple of miles away.

Another big and bashy release from Leaf that once again, fits neatly into the sound that is totally reminiscent of nothing but Serial Killaz.

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

New Release: Leaf - Pick n Mix EP Part 1

Leaf makes a sticky return to the Serial Killaz label in the form of his 2 part Pick ‘n’ Mix EP. It’s an extra large bundle of frantic breakbeats that Leaf seems to have crafted into his own versatile sound. Trademarking to the point of recognition is no easy task, however, this EP really does showcase that it’s still possible.

‘Bumbaclart’ introduces the EP with some nice top ended brass samples, hectic reggae influenced vocals and jolly swing beats. Combine that with a humongous single note bassline that takes over the track to the point of wiping out the whole entire dance floor and you’re onto a winner from the off.

‘Wu Style’ comes freshly laced up with a VIP and will no doubt appeal to diehard fans that will instantly recognise the siren sample used in a ton of early 90’s tracks. It’s rugged vocals link perfectly into the breakdown and the short stab snare is certainly reminiscent of Leaf’s earlier influences. If you liked the VIP, check the Monsoon EP for the original.

Experimental rolling vibes by the bucketload in the aptly named ‘Rolls’ is up next. Spiked out basslines take a trip on trademark style beat composition which both really live up to the name of the track.

Switching things up totally in the form of ‘Horror’, Leaf takes us on an audio trip into the dark side not forgetting to add that all too familiar slice of vocal stabs and weird percussion effects into the mix.

‘Hard to Find’ featuring the vocal talents of Alice Winzar is probably the standout track on the EP for me. Combining Leaf’s destructive yet well thought out production with attitude infused female vocals works wonders here. Probably not quite commercial playlist ready, Leaf sticks to his roots and caters for the underground scene adding layers of mucky bass to the mix.

New Release: Gold Dubs Ft. Cheshire Cat - Bitter Creek EP

A brand new Streetlife release in the form of Gold Dubs & Cheshire Cat’s ‘Bitter Creek’ EP is about to hit the virtual shelves. It’s a massive mixture of heavyweight bass, moody vocals and destructive beats. Check it..

‘Bad Boy Deya’ proves that not everything has to be at 175 beats per minute with its mucky, cantankerous bassline that drones underneath Cheshire Cat’s crisp vocals. Certainly one for all the bad boys inna dance skirting the corners and screwing up their face.

Doubling up the tempo in the form of ‘Control’ with bright and bashy beats, summertime vocals and continually stabbing bass notes that demand even the stiffest of person to shake a leg. Can you guess the name of that classic break used in this? One for the original hardcore crew.

Don the camo sticks with ‘War Paint’ as the smoke fills the room and bass drones fire off all over the place. Cheshire Cat comes into his own on this with vocals literally flooding the speaker box. Instant ammunition and a sure fire hit - danger!

Lickin’ shots from the very top in the form of ‘Raise The Banner’, this high energy track is reminiscent of the vibes created by reggae sound system trucks and would certainly be at home at a clash. Drop this one in a battle and the claxon will sound in a second flat.

Concluding on ‘Steppin’, Cheshire Cat throws down some knowledge and wisdom combined with the lowest of bass which will no doubt force the speaker hugging brigade to the floor. Weighty in every sense and a fine way to end this EP.

Serial Killaz is quite possibly THE home of jungle, don’t squat with the minority and don’t watch face.
