Drumsound & Bassline Smith- Booyaka EP [Technique Recordings]

We’ve barely had time to catch our breath after the shattering impact of “The Bomb”, Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s huge collaboration with Tantrum Desire. Even so, the Technique bosses are already back with a four-track EP containing ammo straight from their tried and tested dubplate armoury.

The title track “Booyaka” opens in an unsettling landscape of retro sci fi tension, as pads and bleeps ride the building percussion. The approach of mayhem is signalled by thunderclap kicks exploding through the system, and it’s time for all real ravers to step forward. Surging waves of bass crash into the dance, and as Drumsound & Bassline Smith add evolving layers of breaks into the mix to hype things further, it’s game over.

“Unity” is infused with the flavours of jazz, soul, and funk as horns, keys, guitar licks, and vocal stabs set the tone in the intro. Just in case you were expecting some laid-back liquid groove, though, DBS quickly dispel that idea with a kick-build that delivers us right into high-energy mode. Those infectiously bubbling basslines and rolling drums could only have come from producers steeped in the jungle foundations. This is a classic-style roller that’s perfectly configured for 2019 dancefloors.

Next, the soaringly epic opening of “Straight from the Underground”, made from subtle hints of percussion and sweeping choral timbres delivers a hands in the air moment that’s going to have deejays everywhere wheeling up to run it from the top. When Drumsound & Bassline Smith suddenly throw in an angst-inducing discord and a dramatic build that drops into twisting and modulating bassline savagery, absolute banger status is assured.

“Mash it Up” is a stone-cold killer. Militant drums and anthemic orchestral chords immediately let us know this is warrior music. Drumsound & Bassline Smith aren’t playing. As the eponymous vocal clip leads us into the drop, we’re assaulted with a multi-strike combo of evolving basslines and break-laden drums. Taking elements from jungle and neuro, they’ve created something fresh that’s going to hurt you whatever your sub-genre of choice. You’re going to want to check this.

Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s precision-tooled basses and high-energy break deployment are well known, and their craft really comes to the fore on this EP. There’s high-level studio science at work here, married perfectly with a natural, raw, junglist vibe. That’s why the “Booyaka EP” is going to connect with real DnB heads everywhere.

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.

Heres the sample :
