New Release: Java - Original Ruffneck EP

Jungle, in its rawest format is certainly not about a kick, snare, kick and a floppy bassline. You can forget this one note bassline nonsense too. Java has obviously answered the call to educate the masses and quite rightly linked up with Serial Killaz to put together this amazing EP for their Killa Dubz imprint. ‘Original Ruffneck’ is coming to conquer, taking down all pretenders in the process.

Metallic timestretched vocals straight out of an Akai sampler, mashed up Amens in abundance and a ton of ragga infused vocals all mix perfectly together to provide one hell of a time warp back to 1993. You can forget your ‘94 or ‘96 influences as this really is a trip back to Dance Trance, The Edge or Love of Life and a real education in how to produce jungle in 2018.

Authentic to the core and with certification from both Graham and Tobie, this EP sits in high regards. It also needs to sit at the top of your Serato crate, don’t sleep on this.

Exclusive to the Serial Killaz shop for one week prior to general release. - Format: WAV - Artist: Java - Title: Original Ruffneck EP - Label: Killadubz Recordings - Catalogue: KILLADUBZ010DIG - Release Date: 14th December 2018 - Words: Jamie S23

New Release: Steppa Style & Lowriderz - Underwater

Lowriderz, fresh out of the jungle war comes another heavy slab of unfiltered breakbeat goodness in the form of the ‘Underwater EP’. Featuring the vocals of Russian Dancehall and Reggae MC, Steppa Style, this is another wicked release from the Serial Killaz offshoot label Street Life which once again shows how dedicated these guys are to authenticity.

Lead vocals from the one like Steppa Style kickstart proceedings straight away featuring one hell of a catchy hook that will have crowds chanting for days. ‘Underwater’ is a direct onslaught on the senses with a ton of mashed up breakbeats, dub effects and a short ranged lead bassline that bangs.

‘Eva Load’ delivers some real lyrically education. A great feel good message, excellent double timing all wrapped up in glossy production that this dynamic duo are well known for.

Reminiscent of ‘94 yet as upfront as you could possibly wish for. Street Life and its artists really are a winning combination for die hard junglists of all ages.

New Release: AJ Mutated - Uneasy EP

AJ Mutated, one half of the popular duo Mutated Forms, sets his sights on the Serial Killaz imprint to launch his ‘Uneasy’ EP. A clear choice of label considering the style of fashion of the content. This is a rare selection of jungle breakbeats, hard as nails sublow bass and some wicked lyrics from the one like MC Busta. Rough to the core!

‘Uneasy’ certainly is just that. From it’s precisely filtered out breakbeat intro that delicately flows into a drop it’s total opposite that sets the pace and tone for the EP immediately. Vicious digital bass notes connect almost effortlessly with rolling undertones and short but snappy snare claps. You’re also treated to an extended breakdown halfway through, just for that extra breather. Right?

Wonky, off pitch keys lead straight into ‘Swerve’. A proper dedication to a messy night if you ever heard one. The brain melting synchronisation will either have you reaching for the lazers or camping next to the corner of the bassbin stack.

‘Petty Boulevard’ knocks on the experimental production door with alien like sub bass that would rip through wooden dance floors like a knife through butter. Old school hardcore heads will no doubt appreciate the cleverly adapted samples in this belter!

A ‘PHD In Junglism’ you say? That’s no doubt reserved for the likes of Serial Killaz themselves no? MC Busta would certainly have something to say about that and this killer track which is totally lyrically led is sure to be one of the biggest hits of the year for any self respecting junglist.

Licking off the EP with nothing short of the brutal ‘Pipe Dreams’. A solid head stomper of a riddim that knocks off any preconceptions anyone might have had about AJ Mutated going soft after all these years.

A certified roughneck EP. No further comment.

New Release: Leaf - Night Time Vultures EP

Leaf makes a welcome return to the Serial Killaz label with a 6 track monster from the depths of doom in the form of ‘Night Time Vultures’. A true mix of atmospheric beats, darkside basslines and a huge slice of jump up vibes. No stranger to the label and with a host of previous releases, it’s no wonder he’s been welcomed back with open arms.

The growling menace that is ‘Night Time Vultures’ barks its angry bassline continuously in true Leaf fashion. Combine this with some clever use of vocal samples, chuck in some skippy hats and you have yourself a well created weapon of destruction.

‘Dodgy Dealers’ takes even more of a darkside stance than its predecessor with it’s robotic, almost machine like structure. If anything created by Leaf was a trip into his mind, this one would probably be it.

Linking up with Too Greezey for ‘Lower Down’ which contains one of the roughest snare slaps known to man. It’s drum programming really rolls this track along at a considerable pace and when you link in some of the other elements, it’s one certified riddim of terror.

‘Gangsta’ features a certain well renowned Mad P sample that’s cemented into the history books of jungle music. It’s a clever refix (as such) that does well to represent its origins whilst creating something completely different. One for the lighter crew - go on, dig them out - that gas ain’t expensive.

Coming to the end of the dancefloor vibes with ‘Sidewobble’ which, in some respects is pretty self explanatory. This track will no doubt hit the spot for the crew that love to ride that twisted bassline vibe. Short and snappy reversed low end that will take down even the biggest of sound systems.

Ending this wicked collection of tracks with ‘Air’, a relaxed trip into the unknown that shows Leaf’s opposite side. One hell of a chilled out vibe that will appeal to the Sunday morning crew coming home on the motorway.

New Release: DJ Vapour - Kingston Jungle EP

DJ Vapour continues to steamroll his jungle train across the globe in an attempt to educate the masses as to what REAL jungle should sound like. The ‘Kingston Jungle’ EP is nothing short of a flagship for this conquest and what better home than Serial Killaz’ sister label Killa Dubz, with it’s 100% dedication to the foundation of the Jungle sound.

From the rough and ready breakbeats of ‘Damage Your Sound’ to the rhythmic flow of ‘Back To Skool’, it’s clear this EP was a labour of love for Vapour. It’s about an authentic as you’re going to get in 2018 and bearing in mind the true jungle sound is about 25 years old now so both times and equipment have changed dramatically.

‘B Boy Style’ features a great selection of vocal and riff samples that would have really been at home on a Jungle Mania compilation, it’s slick production and arrangement shines heads and shoulders above any imitation jungle tat that’s been doing the rounds. Fans of mashed up to the point of unrecognition Amen breaks will probably love ‘The Devil’s Lettuce’. It’s unapologetic rave influenced stabs lick the walls of every grimy basement across London and stick to it like a ton of trodden in chewing gum.

An impressive selection of tracks from one of jungles veteran producers who sadly sometimes goes a bit too far under the radar. Underrated and probably underappreciated, Vapour is relentless in his quest for authenticity - and why not?

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.

New Release: DJ Limited - Ganja Time EP

DJ Limited is no stranger to the Serial Killaz imprint with a string of previous releases to his name. It’s no wonder that his latest release ‘Ganja Time’ feels so at home here as its chockablock with bubbling beats that are as versatile as the label itself.

Introduction vibes a run in the form of ‘Ganja Time’. A stripped back, relaxed intro quickly whips intro crushing basslines and chopped up breakbeats that really set a great tone for the EP.

Revisiting ‘Colour’ from 2017’s ‘Dubplate’ EP, Limited adds a great deal of toughness to the mix which will no doubt please fans of the original. Reworking but not overstating which is kind of the idea with VIP releases.

‘Sun’ is a real flip of the script and it’s certainly a track full of summertime vibes, glossy vocals and rolling beats. A diverse tune that will no doubt rank highly in both DJ crates and streamed airtime. Those that know their reggae will no doubt be familiar with the samples used to perfection in this one! It’s also worth noting that this release comes with an instrumental version.

Both ‘Sound’ and ‘I Know You Know About Me’ really ramp up the temperature whilst maintaining that certain vibe of the whole EP. Aimed strictly at the dancefloor, these bangers really are handcrafted goodness that would certainly be at home in any DJs crates.

‘The Way I Do’ wraps up the EP and really needs no introduction. This box of tricks is a can of worms waiting to bust out and that’s exactly what it does, and in a fine fashion too! No doubt this one has already been wrapping it’s moody bassline rumbles around your ears for a few months already as it’s been cained on dub by everyone that’s worth a mention.

New Release: Bassface Sascha, DJ Phlex, Feindsoul and MC Spyda - Babylon Herbalist EP

A junglist dream team featuring Bassface Sascha, DJ Phlex , Feindsoul and MC Spyda unleash a worldwide onslaught courtesy of foundation label Serial Killaz. ‘Babylon Herbalist’ is a slab of pure good vibes and prompts reload after reload, no matter what track has been selected from it.

‘Imitation Soundbwoy’ is nothing short of anthem status. The vocal talents of veteran MC Spyda are always a welcome surprise and he’s done it again with another ultra catchy hook. Combine this with a jolly bassline riff and you’re well on your way to a cult classic before it’s even been officially released.

Providing an additional truckload of feel good vibes, the title track from the album licks down concrete basslines that chug along at a hefty pace, twisting and turning in and out of inhaling fx and memorable vocals that any self respecting junglist will no doubt appreciate.

‘Yard Clart’ takes it way back to the original days of soundclash with a ton of vocal samples that scream both passion and energy. Tearing bass creeps out of nowhere and literally takes this track to a whole new level. Dangerous!

Flexed out sunshine melodies in abundance with ‘Killa Instinct’, a track that leads from the get go with all the intentions of a chilled out roller. That may well have been the initial idea however, what this turns into is something of a different beast. Aggy, destructive vibes take full control and when the Gloc click, it’s dancefloor destruction.

Wrapping it up with a dub version of ‘Imitation Soundbwoy’ and it’s another complete package from the legendary Serial Killaz camp.

Warning - this is one highly addictive selection of tracks.

New Release: Lowriderz - Jungle War EP

Junglists worldwide rejoice as Serial Killaz’s release schedule for 2018 is ridiculously heavy. To add further heat to the fire, Lowriderz bring forth ‘Jungle War’. This EP is already causing a storm on dubplate with its varied hard hitting flavours doing all kinds of things to the dancefloor. Murderation.

‘Jungle War’ kicks off proceedings with cinematic intro vibes, orchestra hits and filtered out breakbeats. Heading straight for the drop and you’re already into a full between battle of electronic basslines, storming kickdrums and hard slapping snares. Rough, tough and dangerous from the outset.

MC Steppa Style brings his natural talent to ‘Like This’ which could easily be at home in a huge aircraft hangar filled with 1,000’s of ravers circa 1995. It’s an much a flexed out roller as it is a real head nodder. Literally flooding with good vibes.

‘Sound D Pot’ takes things straight to the murkiest of corners with some real distorted bassline that haunts this riddim like an obsessive poltergeist. It’s one hell of a heavy track that begs attention, smashes the hell out of the makeshift basement sound systems and tears down festival security barriers. Relaxing the vibe a little with ‘Spy’. A nod to ‘94 with mashed up breaks, sublow bass and an array of filtered effects. A great interlude if you’re one for playing a collection of tracks in the order intended or if not, a cracking jungle riddim for the crates!

‘Dose’ continues with the jungle vibe, ramps it up a notch and adds some real head nodding beats that deliver like nothing else. The slight additions of percussion shots really adds to the mood and have been cleverly combined to take this tune up another level.

MC Smoky Dog closes the EP with ‘Monsta’, a credible take on the Serial Killaz original vibe and a worthy anthem to anyone's record box this summer. One minute you’re treated to reggae infused melodies, the next some roughneck jump up basslines. It’s a fine ending to this huge EP from Lowriderz.

Smashed out the park once again. Hold tight the original junglists, the new school jump up heads and everyone in between - this one you!

New Release: Salaryman and Veak - On Fire EP

Salaryman & Veak launch into a hyper jungle state with the much anticipated Serial Killaz release of the ‘On Fire’ EP. Reggae influences aplenty with enough dub fx, lazer shots and reverb soaked vocals to force feed even the most resistant junglist. This package is as roughneck as them come and a real battle between two foundation producers.

Intro business with ‘Be Careful’, originally released by Salaryman via Serial Killaz in 2015. This time around Veak has taken the production state to another level with crushing Amen breakbeats, reworked vocal programming and much more. If you liked the original, you’re going to love this.

‘Champion’ sends lick shots across all 4 corners of the dance, blazing fire from the word go and combining some really well known samples with hectic drum programming, vocal chops and rumbling basslines.

Not content with a single offering of ‘Champion’, Salaryman brings forth the relick to end all relicks. A solid take on the original whilst offering what some may say as a B side equivalent. It’s certainly got a rougher edge with an abundance of mashed up breakbeats and is one hard as nails track.

Salaryman & Veak team up, bringing with them a few cans of petrol to add to their sampler which in turn, creates ‘On Fire’. Imagine slicing up that legendary Mad Skillz vocal, twisting and bending it into a cheese grater and you’re pretty much on point with the outcome. Mind bending arrangements combined with a devastating kick drum that makes up everything you need for a bassline.

‘Why Did You Leave Me’ finalises this excellent offering from Serial Killaz. It’s another remix from Veak that presents itself as one hell of a fine festival anthem. Sunshine licks, killer vocals and an abundance of feel good vibes (despite the title!). Finishing the EP off in real style.

This whole EP was made for the original Jungle Fever days. Just pause, rewind and come again.
