New Release: DJ Hydrid - Puff Puff Pass EP

Sharing his extensive knowledge of upfront jungle production, DJ Hybrid falls back into the Serial Killaz camp with a fully blazed selection in the form of “Puff Puff Pass”. A street tough onslaught of authentic jungle breaks combined with familiar basslines and snappy vocal samples that will no doubt have you calling for the gas canister and a lighter.

Skippy breakbeats and reggae infused vocals set the pace well in the form of the EPs title track and although the tempo is somewhat more relaxed than you may be used to, it’s certainly one for the head nodders, party starters and bassbin huggers.

Intros are most certainly back for 2018 and “Ready to Rumble” doesn’t disappoint in this and every other aspect of the track. Combining elements of 1994, vibrant vocals and one hell of a crushing low end, Hybrid is certainly bringing all the fighting talk to the studio.

“I Challenge You” screams that indirect vibe, sending lick shots to each and every upfront jungle producer across the globe. Featuring a well used vocal sample that really needs no introduction, rolling basslines that are enough to make your toes curl and that ever so popular siren from way back when. Warning!

Layering up vocals and using them as the driving force of a track isn’t something that’s heard as much as it should be. Thankfully “BeatBox” satisfies all aspects of this with some cleverly laid out chops, twists and rolls, all based around some wicked vocal samples. This one is certainly a new take on the current jungle sound.

“Hear The Drummer” is every self respecting junglists dream. Dread Bass inspired reverse basslines, chopped up breakbeats, damn this thing could have been on every Ray Keith set in 1994! If you’re going to draw for an air horn or lighter in the dance, then pull it out all the way through this.

Finishing off with an exclusive VIP mix of Hybrid’s previously released “Moving On” from 2016. A similar take on the original which, in essence is what a VIP is all about.

A high value selection from the Serial Killaz camp with each release offering something different. If you can appreciate authentic jungle, upfront beats and everything in between, this one's for you.

New Release: Jaydan - War Clash EP

Returning to the Serial Killaz label with a bang, Jaydan unleashes a monster collection of tracks for your ear. It’s been a minute since he locked himself back in the lab and already he’s been churning out more of that trademark production than ever before. He also made some big promises leading up to this and with no hesitation, Jaydan delivered.

‘War Clash’ brings forth an intro jacked straight out of 1995, brushed up to date with modern flair and slammed straight into the speakerbox. Rolling drums, abrupt bass and twisted out amen breaks - a true recipe for success and a devastating tool for any well respected DJ.

Influences in abundance in the shape of ‘The Whistler’ and it goes without saying that Jaydan has certainly pulled on some previous memories with this one. Jump up from 2005 mixed with upfront jungle breaks that shouldn’t really work as well as it does.

‘Babylon’ features one hell of an atmospheric introduction that slides right into a full on pattern of steppy breakbeats and aggy basslines. This one brings forth the danger!

Reminiscing on the supply and demand era of everybody's favourite media, ‘Vinyl’ is one serious beast. A sense of frustration conveys from not only the vocal samples but the aggressive, spine tingling bassline that comes shortly after the intro.

Certainly a mixed bag of styles and flavours from Jaydan. No doubt after hearing you this you will also agree that he’s back on top form and ready to rumble. Here’s to more from this talented producer and DJ.

New Release: Xyphon - Back To The Roots EP

Tom & Harry AKA Xyphon have a big career in front of them and this EP is nothing but total showcase of their talents. Taking influences from early Pendulum and Muzzy, a stab of Sub Zero and a whole load of Serial Killaz vibes, this release ‘Back To The Roots’ is nothing short of exactly that.

Hitting hard from the off with ‘Never Go Down’. An atmospheric introduction begs the lighting engineer for more fog, more haze before the infectious bassline lick rises into a chopped up concoction of rubber ball low end that will no doubt cause skull reverberations aplenty.

‘Murda’ is where the real influences of the past blast through with this release. What more could you ask for from the Serial Killaz label than a mix of feel good reggae keys, soundbwoy vocals and terradome bass? Lottery winning ticket right here!

For those that know, the infamous ‘Now Here Dis’ vocal has done the rounds on more than one occasion, however this release by Xyphon delivers in a totally different light. Flexed out breakbeats relentlessly combine with a mixture of striking mid range and true low end sub bass. It’s a perfect combination of jungle elements and upfront rollers.

‘Sinkhole’ takes the pace of the EP and ramps it into another dimension. For those that appreciate real drum and bass to get your head into, this one delivers and then some. Play this in a dark, smoke filled basement and watch the crowd literally sink into the floor. All head nodders, all floor gazers - this one you.

Outro vibes a run in the form of ‘Gotta Leave’. A fine end credits to the EP and a great mixture of real Serial Killaz vibes, moody basslines and potentially an undercover message for perpetrators of the jungle scene.

Warning lick shots back to back feel good vibes, the only way the label operates.
