Hype and Pascal present the latest EP from Playaz’ young upstart, Tyke. Tyke has become known for his warm sound – honed on his beloved analogue outboard gear – and diverse approach, and this EP will not disappoint.
Hype and Pascal present the latest EP from Playaz young upstart, Tyke. Tyke has become known for his warm sound honed on his beloved analogue outboard gear & and diverse approach, and this EP will not disappoint.
The title track Do It Now was aired on Crissy Cris show back in March – its a sick tune with a crazy zombie-ish vocal and Tyke’s standout heavy bass vibes.
Up next is Big Sound, with a skanking dirty bassline and featuring the skatty vocals of veteran MC Daddy Earl (part of the Heatwave soundsystem along with Hype) and then Tyke teams up with Prestige Cat Knight on Keep Shining – a track which also features on his guestmix for Sunbeatz.
Hold a Thought in Your Hand is a futurish, intelligent dnb track. Hype played this one on his Kiss show recently and the EP rounds off with the fast paced, melodic mentalness of Bad.
Having played out all over Europe this summer, catch Tyke doing the big one this month in Room One at Playaz night at Fabric.

Utopia Music 16 out 29.10.14
A. Break, Mako, Fields & Villem – Shadowlines
AA. Chromatic – Found You
Utopia’s 16th vinyl single brings label stalwart Break into the fold once again for a hard hitting roller that has been getting reactions all over the globe since it got leaked into the top DJ’s hands. The A side teams up the Symmetry boss with Utopia label honcho and recent Metalheadz addition Mako, with his long term partners Fields and Villem. The production and weight are unreal whilst retaining a woody rather than plastic aesthetic.
The flip sounds like a Lenzman classic but instead is brought to you by rising stars Chromatic. Growing in confidence, they have recently been releasing on Hype’s Playaz label and are producing quality dance floor bass lines without the need for the screechy mid range bass that has become so prevalent in modern drum and bass. Warm bass, beats and keys and no need for much else.

Want to hear something out of control? The ruffians from Hype’s Playaz have come out to play for the seventh installment of the now legendary The Flavours series, and good gracious is it a scorcher. Featuring a tech-heavy stepper called “Very Exciting” (agreed) by newcomer Konichi to break you in, the second track is a deep, devastating roller courtesy of big man Philth with politically charged vox from P-Fine. The rest of the EP comes on strong with heavy-hitting tunes from Serum, the ever-gorgeous Chromatic and Nu Elements as well as some hugely promising newcomers. Do not sleep on this – you’ve been warned.
