"K-Lone's signature UK fruitiness matched with a killer vocal from LA rapper Ill Chill. Look out for this one."
Talk about a transformation; in its original format, LA-4A’s 'Invader' is a decent slice of grungy techno with some eerie Konders keys, but it reaches a new level when Alden Tyrell remixes it. Hardcore samples screech in over militaristic claps, a grainy bass stomps like a skinhead losing it after too much Scrumpy and the end result positively exudes menace. Man of the moment Matrixxman is tasked with remixing another LA-4A track, 'America Kid', but even his hypnotic, acid-soaked version can’t compare to Tyrell’s apocalyptic meltdown.
Murky meanderings from Vuurwerk, who combine Sylvie Kreusch’s delicate vocals over dark synths and delicate drum programming. For fans of Walls and general shoegazing.
Here's a firing junglistic bassbin assault from the mighty King Yoof, featuring the legendary Ragga Twins vibing up the place like there's no tomorrow. The London-based producer drops heavily-delayed keys, blistering sampled breakbeats and dubby low-end for a booming soundsystem vibe that's guaranteed to get 'em throwing shapes in the dancehall. Sub Slayers has been a little quiet of late, but this is a hugely welcome return to the fray.
