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!

New Release: Furniss - Questions EP

The Serial Killaz release schedule shows no sign of slowing down and with this latest release from Northampton’s very own Furniss, it’s totally full steam ahead. ‘The Questions’ EP is a rammed jammed affair of 6 heavyweight drum and bass tracks that take reference from the likes of ‘Raw Dogs’ relick, ‘Enta Da Dragon’ and many more flavours from that golden era of jump up.

The title track of the EP sets the pace firmly with a ton of clever samples that create a sense of apprehension before killer slices of drone bass cuts in and out of Furniss’ well polished snares. It’s a clever take on the traditional use of dubbed vocals which works incredibly well.

‘Here We Go Again’ is a fine combination of influences from the Joker Records era and up to date drum programming. The subtle introduction of additional elements provide a constant platform of switches and is testament to the fact that jump up isn’t just a case of blatant copy and pasting.

Moody vibes a run with ‘The General’, so much so that it’s one of those tunes that would easily fit into a beat em up video game boss intro. Furniss has taken elements of vocal samples, film scores and wonky drum programming to create a real darkside head nodder and with the addition of a proper sublow bassline, it’s certainly one to check.

A slight switch next (as expected from anything release via Serial Killaz) by way of ‘Lord A Mercy’ and this is where things really tie into the brand. Combining a single fire vocal sample and trailing bass that really holds the weight tightly in place.

‘Babylon’ is a monster, a REAL monster of a tune. Trailblazing bass from first to last drop, it’s a wonder Furniss managed to get such high impact from digital production. This is low end that you not only hear, but feel.

Finishing things off with ‘This Technique’. A murky stepper of the highest proportion which doesn’t shut the door on what Furniss has to over. Expect much more to come in 2018.

This whole EP is something of a masterpiece and will no doubt appeal to both old and new drum and bass heads alike. References in abundance from the mid 90’s, this is not only an education but a pure dancefloor destroyer for festivals and small back rooms alike.

New Release: Serial Killaz Feat. Ragga Twins - Duppy Sound EP

The Ragga Twins have been consistently involved in the underground dance music scene way before the birth of jungle so it’s no surprise that once again they are dropping some wicked tunes back to back with Serial Killaz. Two original microphone pioneers combined with two legendary jungle producers equals one heavyweight selection from the Serial Killaz offshoot label, Street Life.

Deman Rocker and Flinty Badman fling down an array of uplifting, high energy bars throughout which are complemented by that true jungle sound that only the Serial Killaz camp can bring.

Setting the pace from the off with the original lick of ‘Duppy Sound’. Driven by The Ragga Twins, it’s a mixture of rough and tough reggae fueled jungle and summertime vibes - perfect for both those rare real jungle events and ram jammed festivals. Some may notice the quirky time stretched vocals which pay a special dedication to that well known Akai sampler that was used more than a few times in the early 90’s.

The full vocal version of the dancehall tearout mix slams the door tightly shut on the EP and fires from all cylinders to maximum effect. Bringing that early 2000’s vibe into 2017 with total devastation. Crunching snares, aggressive bass and with the addition of reworked vocals from The Ragga Twins, it takes the original and flips it on it’s head.

Not only are you getting the full vocal version of this wicked tune and the dancefloor tearout mix but the instrumentals are also included with the EP. Perfect for dropping in and out alongside another slammer from the virtual record box.

When Serial Killaz and Ragga Twins link up, the vibes are off the chain!

Upgrade - You Ain't Well (Dominator Remix) Free Download

You may or may not know that a few months ago the scene lost a major talent, and we lost a fantastic friend and producer; Neil Aldred aka Dominator.

Originally planned as part of a remix ep, it was one of Neil's last wishes that we got his amazing remix of Upgrade's equally amazing "You Ain't Well" out on the streets, and so that is what we have done.

We have set it as a free download but you can pay whatever amount you want. All the profits will go to his family, so if you can please spare whatever money you have, it would be greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to share this link on all your profiles and pages, the more people that see it the better. Let's keep his spirit alive through the music that he blessed us with.

Many thanks.

New Release: Vital Elements - Pipes Of Thunder EP

Vital Elements, otherwise known as one half of the deadly Serial Killaz duo has been incredibly busy as of late. With multiple studio projects on the go as well as running one of the biggest labels on the circuit it’s a wonder he’s managed to finish this monster EP.

Not only has he finished it, he’s produced probably one of his best pieces of work to date with an incredibly versatile bag of tracks.

‘Pipes of Thunder’ lulls you into a false sense of security by the half time r’n’b swing step loop, however, it’s not long before sweeping classic breakbeats and deep vocal samples collide and the stand out horn blasts, making it pretty clear that the track means business. If there ever was a tune to kick off a set that shows to the crowd (and the DJ previous) that you mean business, then this is, without a doubt the one. Danger from the first blast of the horn.

Rebooting that classic Serial Killaz silky smooth sound with ‘Jump & Twist’ featuring one hell of a feel good breakbeat arrangement that rides alongside the gritty bassline in such as fashion that even the hard-nosed ravers would crack an approving smile.

Sampling mastery combined with major influences from 1996, Vital Elements really brings things home with ‘Where You At’. A fine mix of vibes from the glory days of jump up and everything that’s positive about modern bouncy drum and bass. Easily reloaded time and time again and for those who experienced it first hand, you’re going to beg for this to be pressed to vinyl.

Stepping things into a different direction, ‘72’ is a full on metallic blast of wobbling bass drones, hard hitting stabs and rough breakbeats. The stand out snare really drives this tune into another dimension and combined with reverberating bass tones, it’s one hell of a monster.

‘Yard Man’ is another up-tempo dancefloor monster that’s guaranteed to get things moving. Its breakbeat arrangement has something really quirky about it that instantly drives the track that little bit harder, especially during the half step arrangement.

Vocal talents from Ena Jules shine bright on ‘Are You Loose’ which bring a welcome slice of variety to this EP. It clearly demonstrates versatility and experience from Vital Elements who is certainly no stranger to delve into various aspects of the drum and bass genre.

Wrapping things up in fine style with ‘Waiting So Long’ featuring the vocal talents of Jenni Bellestar Matthias, song writing by Eugenie Matthias (The Belle Stars, Paul Weller and Adrian Sherwood among others) and trumpet playing by Duncan Mackay (Primal Scream, Tom Jones, Tina Turner, The Chemical Brothers and many more). This one is ideal for sound system crews, dance floor addicts and those who love reggae flavoured drum and bass vibes.

A great EP from Vital Elements that really proves that you can still create an anthem in drum and bass that lasts longer than 5 minutes. ‘Pipes of Thunder’ is going to be sitting in your virtual record box for a long, long time! Anthem business.

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

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.

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.

New Release: The Force - Pussy Sound EP

The Force, an artist that championed the ever changing jump up scene in the early 2000’s is back for 2017 with a corker of an EP via Serial Killaz. ‘Pussy Sound’ is coming live and direct to your speaker box and it’s taking no prisoners. If you loved ‘Welcome to Earth’ and ‘Drop Zone’, this one is for you.

‘Hipster’, a direct swipe at anyone still rocking the man bun or spray on jeans from Topman crushes mid to low end frequencies aplenty and in some respects, takes a hefty chunk of influence from that original Clipz vibe. Singalong riffs and smiling faces guaranteed.

Switching direction with ‘My Love’ presents a totally different take on things with an almost commercial friendly vocal hook and smoothed out intro. A few moments in though and it’s quite obvious The Force were not looking for a spot on the drivetime show as this one’s without a shadow of a doubt aimed at the bass bin crew.

The title track from the EP is a wonky affair of interconnecting beats and breaks that has a shuffle vibe all over it. If this was 1994 the MIDI clock would be going nuts over the amount of swing on offer here! Aimed at the comfy ravers in some sliders without a doubt.

Wrapping up with ‘Serious Music’ and some punchy snares that came straight from 2007. Combine that with a hefty slab of Casio influenced midrange bass and it’s an ideal tune to end the EP with.

Certainly something different from the usual Serial Killaz vibe and something that will no doubt ring home with fans of upfront and slightly older jump up (I’m in no way saying old school here!)

New Release: Beast Mode - Bossman EP

Beast Mode, the talented duo hailing from both the UK and France are back on the Serial Killaz label with a heavy slice of ragga infused jungle breakbeat with their ‘Bossman’ EP. If you’re playing this on a huge stack of speakers in the middle of a field 10 miles shy of the M25 or licking down shots at your local house party it’s sure to cause a multitude of reloads.

Setting the tone with the title track, ‘Bossman’ is a fine introduction to what’s in store. From the off it’s clear this really is a jungle EP and not something conjured up to capitalise on the roots of the scene.

‘Cool It Down’ beams sunshine, crashing breakbeats and singalong vocals before entering into a battle of the Amen breaks and rumbling basslines. It really is that perfect mix of uplifting vibes and destructive beats to please a multitude of audiences.

Beast Mode send a salute to all ‘Original Junglists’ courtesy of some legendary vocal samples. Mix this with roughneck beats and bass, twisted Amen chops and some lighter fluid and you’re back in 1994 in an instant. FIRE!

Lastly ‘Ganja Baby’ and let’s be honest, you can’t have a fully fledged jungle EP without mentioning the herb can you! This one has been specifically produced to make your head nod and the infectious vocal hook will entice plenty of erratic dance moves all over the place.

This EP is sure to sit at front of digital record boxes for many months to come and with a huge lineup of releases from Serial Killaz over the summer months it’s sure to set things off with a bang.
