NEW RELEASE: DJ LIMITED – DUBPLATE EP

Everyone loves the word dubplate. It’s something that’s bashed about the scene pretty loosely these days but what’s serious amiss is that actual dubplates were pressed to promote tracks before promo copies were even considered.

Taking that fact into consideration you wouldn’t think Serial Killaz would even touch a release under the title ‘Dubplate’ without it being of serious quality would you? Of course not!

This EP from Limited is firing all kinds of shots – bring forth the flamethrowers.

The title track, ‘Dubplate’ provided a staple amount of reggae infused new school jungle although the switch here is that the bassline layering is a combination of hefty subs and glossy metallic tones that physically rip through metal speaker mesh. If you’re watching the red lines, this one is a serious warning to sound engineers.

‘Gang Related’ has been bashed to bits by DJs currently supporting this EP and for a valid reason. It’s a nasty piece of filth that belongs in the gutter, the type of track you would only dare to drop in a really moody dance. Not one for the festival, not one for the radio – just smoke, lazers and darkness.

Switching things 360 degrees with ‘Colour’, a bright and upbeat number with plenty of funk and wobbles. It’s screaming out to be sandwiched into something equally as devastating and for those that understand the true meaning of double dropping, it’s going to be right up your street. Dangerous on it’s own, murderation in a link up.

‘Hit The Streets’ brings the vibe into new territory with plenty of panic ridden vocals, rumbling basslines and skippy swing breaks. Another moody track yet totally different to ‘Gang Related’ due to it’s upbeat breakbeat structure and vocal driven atmosphere.

Lastly ‘Ready’ and boy is this tune a big one! Incredibly well known vocal samples, gunshot effects and no-nonsense production make this an amazing end to the EP. The reversed speech effects combine effortlessly with the recurring “one two” which will have any crowd humming along (which certainly seems to be the in thing at present!).

Shots from the double chamber, Limited is set to cause a ruckus with his new EP this year and Serial Killaz are certainly not standing in his way!.

NEW RELEASE: UPGRADE – TEMPER TANTRUM EP

Upgrade, well known for his skills creating huge dancefloor bashers returns to the Serial Killaz label to unleash his brand new EP ‘Temper Tantrum’. He’s obviously been taking his recent automobile frustrations out on the mixing desk as this collection of tracks bangs harder than a head on collision on the M1.

The title track ‘Temper Tantrum’ provides the perfect introduction to the forthcoming mayhem with an infectious synth hook which is swiftly mimicked by a roughly layered bassline and Wild West vocal stabs.

‘It’s Possible’ keeps the pace rolling with the promise of virtual bombs exploding across the rave. It’s another heavily riff driven track that’s screaming anthem and will no doubt have had ravers humming that gritty patten way after the 6am cutoff.

Next up on the agenda is ‘Terrorick’. Guided by a ton of excellent vocal samples, it’s the perfect quick turnaround that any DJ looking for snappy devastation will need. With no let off from the word go, it’s another addictive track that will leave you within an inch of exhaustion, no matter what your dancing style.

Toning down the initial pace, ‘Blow’ provides images of a more glamorous setting but this is obviously a false pretence as it’s quick to change into a throbbing monster of a track. The trick here is the switch at 1:30 which takes the pace to another level. A perfect way to change the style and direction of a tune and it works so well. Forget your key changes, this is where it’s at!

Finishing off this immense EP is ‘Run This Again’. The sublow guiding element to the intro will have any die hard ravers in pieces even before the ever so popular drop, and what a drop it is! Layers upon layers of drums, bass switches, more bass switches and everything in between make this final track an absolute killer from Manila.

This EP from Upgrade really does show why he’s a notch above most in the drum and bass scene. If you sleep on this, you really are missing out and with DJ support from the likes of Andy C and Skrillex to name a few, it’s time to unleash your temper.

NEW RELEASE: DEZ – ROCKERS EP

One half of the drum and bass duo Bass Brothers, Dez had a busy year in 2016 releasing an onslaught of tracks, all coming with huge DJ support. Kicking off 2017 he’s bringing the ‘Rockers EP’ to the legendary Serial Killaz label and quite rightly so – it’s packed with 4 wicked tunes that do the brand justice.

Kicking off with ‘Full A Ganja’, a track that fuses house synth stabs with reggae vocal samples, an odd combination you may think? One thing is for sure though, it works so well and blends directly into full on beats and bass that are guaranteed to make the dance floor explode into a frenzy of arms and legs all over the place.

Totally flipping the script on the next tune ‘House of Madness’ is way off the radar when it comes to the vibe left from the previous 3 tunes. As the title may suggest, it’s a war riddim surrounded by B movie vocal samples, crushing synth stabs and ever pounding basslines. Maybe Capcom should have picked this one up to coincide with the launch of their new Resident Evil game… BIG!

‘Mr Kali’ featuring Turno follows up with smoothed out reggae vocals and pads which effortlessly roll out into huge growling bassline and tribal beats. Certainly one for the smokers and ravers alike! This one has been doing so much damage on dub over the last few months it’s no wonder the reaction has been spot on.

Last but by no means least is ‘Rockers’ featuring a barrage of vocals, funked up percussion and rolling bass. Experimental business that will leave your head nodding hours after the track has finished playing. Hardstep crew, this one is without a doubt you!

If you’re looking for a collection of 4 smashers and no fillers then this EP is 100% for you. From radio to rave, every one of these tunes fits as you would expect it to.
