teddy_killerz-killer_squadSince its inception, the ‘Killer Squad EP’ was going to be undeniably huge. Featuring some of the most resounding names across drum & bass, it’s a meeting of titans bringing together the scene’s most mind-breaking production standards. Using these collaborations to pedestal their extensive experience across all musical platforms, this EP is a monumental landmark for Teddy Killerz journey.

Up first, sees a return of the formidable Teddy Killerz and June Miller super group. Deviating from the sound of their last joint single release and demonstrating the vast repertoire they’re able to tap into, it’s a driving riddim which ducks, dives and dashes between breaks. Unrelenting with rave-style reece and a stocky baseline taking you forward, it’s the perfect starter for what’s yet to come.

‘Sputnik’ sees Teddy Killerz partner with historical figurehead Gridlok, who heads up this nitty roller underpinned with distorted bass and lofty stabs. Teddy Killerz bring their techy, crunching personality amongst systematic breakdowns and elevating beat patterns. Nefarious, yet ingeniously built, ‘Sputnik’ will take you into the morning’s earliest hours.

The merging of Teddy Killerz and Audio’s fearsome talent brings expected results, but they’re no less devastating. Flipped samples and clanking percussion dip between reverberating kick drum. Nastily slick, ‘Bugs’ is robotic in design and remorseless in its application.

Then comes the enormity of Icicle’s brooding, cleverly progressing dynamic for ‘Louder’, which rolls out next. It’s lumbering yet tight in its composition, proving the Eps versatility whilst also demonstrating why Teddy Killerz brought Icicle on board. Amongst chaotic pits of LFO, it’s stocky and clanking, adding more weight to the track listing. Alongside Dj Craze, one the the globes most talented turntabilists but also an esteemed producer in his own right, they stand as a super group of artists seldom seen across the industry.

The long awaited Annix collaboration announces itself. Angry, undiluted and the type of jump up which detonates any drum & bass, this fresh cut explodes on impact. Sophisticated yet littered with warbling synth and percussion which acts as a call to arms, it’s a dancefloor anthem for the globe most notorious spots.

And lastly, comes the Czech supernova Counterstrike. Well known for administrating a darkly eclectic style on the decks, he brings the same energy for ‘Horror Show’. Aptly named, your aural nerves are grated by its foreboding intro, launching you head first through a mix of pounding kick drum and distortion. A final gasp before its climatic ending, it’s ends the EP on ricocheting crescendo. The message is clear. Teddy Killerz are back, and they’ve brought with them a host of new toys to play with…

Release Date: 24.06.2016
Rounding off the Shogun 100 project is part 4 and as you’d expect the levels are well and truly ramped. Including ‘Unchained’ by up and coming French trio Signs, a hard-edged collaboration
from Friction and Karma alongside Ed:it and a beautifully produced label debut from Manchester’s North Base, EP 4 is a fitting end to the 100 series.


“We are delighted to have reached our one hundredth release on Shogun audio, when Friction started the label in his front room back in 2004 we could have never imagined we would still be
here 100 releases down the line! To celebrate we’ve pulled together a fantastic package of music from the existing Shogun roster and from our friends and family within the scene that we
have been lucky enough to work with over the years. We can’t wait to share it with the Shogun faithful…. and yes we are already working hard on the next one hundred releases! Enjoy!”

New Release – Icicle & Safire – Suction Cap / Rido – Barking (Plasma Audio)

Plasma Audio is back again. They’ve already caused widespread damage with recent releases from Proxima, Cursa, Gamma and now Icicle and Rido.

Icicle produced a remix, which Plasma released on their first Vinyl in 2014 and now he is back for his second outing on the Australian label alongside Safire. If you know Plasma Audio so far you know that this is going to hit you hard. Industrial, lean and energetic, Suction Cap is a vertical take off tune. Icicle’s unmistakeable flavour sits well with Safire’s sound.

The B. Side, Barking barking by Czech producer, Rido, comes at you fast from the side with a huge wonky lead and shovelfuls of atmosphere. Rido hasn’t pulled any punches and this one is bound to catch the dance off guard.

Plasma Audio has also recently teamed up with Japanese Artist MHAK to create some unique apparel, record sleeves and caps. This release is the first to feature artwork by MHAK. Check out more info on that here . . .

Release will be on label’s soundcloud with B side going up on 2.11 and the A side going up on 9.11

There will be a full playlist live when the release comes out on 15.11

FabricLive Interview - Icicle Studio

FABRICLIVE INTERVIEW – Icicle talks the mechanics of his new Live Show

FABRICLIVE June 6th Flyer
FABRICLIVE June 6th Flyer

World famous producer and DJ Icicle has been speaking to our friends at Fabric London before his forthcoming live performance on 12th June 2015.



Preview text from the full article :

As a producer, Icicle’s technicality is kind of unparalleled. Poised and measured he’s impeccably frequencially balanced and ever so meticulous. In short, his attention to detail is impressive to say the very least. It’s a style of proficiency that the Dutch producer has demonstrated consistently throughout his discography of critically acclaimed material (which includes two phenomenal artist albums, Under The Ice and Entropy, which were both released on Shogun Audio). The latter work has since recently been transformed into a brand new live show, thoughtfully entitled Entropy Live. Described by the Ice Man himself as his motivation to “bring what I do in the studio to the stage” the live show promises to be an hour long performance of live sequencing and analogue mixing that’s channelled through via his plethora of hardware, controllers all set to stunning visuals that’s hosted by the lyrical talent of Manchester emcee, Skittles.
