First track off the EP “Turn Up” feat. Jamaican Dancehall favourite Konshens, is an amped up high vigour powerhouse from the cut-up wasp’s nest of thrashing bass on the first drop to the perfectly weighted featherlight snares, fine-grained synths and oceans of space creating a whipping pace that never feels busy.
“Madness” drops in deep as the ocean slowly rolling waves of beats on a quiet day floats a huge melody spreading across a high production pitch-kick selection of liquid scything bass and velvety undercurrents of tech nodules across a deep ethereal soundscape, DnB vocal specialist Pat Fulgoni puts you under a spell with a spaced out heart felt vocal delivery explaining that what we are looking for is indeed Madness, all the elements wed together via a dreamy, weaving DNB aesthetic.
Driving a steam train of pure energy through the original “Madness” brings the drama of trumpet techy instrumentals that roll out into a powerful drumscape of snares over a tightly filtered bass line from DJ and producers K-i & Phuture Dee who wastes no time letting you know what time it is, to get on down to the floor! Amongst the breakdown and killer second drop makes this track a real hidden chest of treasure!
Last but not least “Turn Up” a weighty remix from label mate Loggi whose firing on all cylinders for this one, with an array of twisted liquid beats a sci-fi tech scudder suddenly emerges halfway through chomping at the ready, making way for a jungle amen adding a fierce fire in the mix.
