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.

Exclusively available on the Serial Killaz shop for one week!

New Release: Veak - Born In The Jungle EP

Killa Dubz, a label known for it’s brash, unfiltered jungle music is back once again with a non stop supply of real music for the underground. This time taking onboard Veak and his ‘Born In The Jungle’ EP. Expect a ton of hard hitting Amen beats and bass as this Serial Killaz offshoot sends fe de hacksaw.

The EP’s title track ‘Born In The Jungle’ sets the tone firmly and cranks up the roughneck dial to 11. Combining an onslaught of metallic vocal loops and risers, this is Amen devastation at its finest and will no doubt fit right at home at your next squat party or warehouse rave.

‘Coca Cola Bottle Shape’ links some very known lyrics with ‘94 breakbeat flavours, mixes it all together and outputs a very distinctive riddim that screams nothing short of a jungle anthem for 2017. One for the ladies crew!

Talking of anthem, just wait for ‘Shadow’ to unleash! A total war tune filled with more snare rolls than a 60 minute set from Grooverider in ‘93. The beat programming on this tune is certainly something else.

Finishing the EP with ‘Veak and Vini Selecta’, a somewhat self titled tune, once again aimed at the dancefloor. Amens, Amens and more Amens all chucked together at various pitches alongside that deep sublow bass which sends warning shots left, right and centre.

Veak has really raised the bar for proper jungle production with not a jolly, bouncy breakbeat in sight. Rough, rugged and raw from start to finish.

Exclusively available on the Serial Killaz shop for one week!
