Serial Killaz – Jungle Came First EP [Streetlife]

Serial Killaz return to their legendary Streetlife Label with their aptly titled Jungle Came First EP, featuring 5 wicked riddims that will cater for everyone looking for that feel good vibe. It really spans across the board from brand new flavours, chilled out vibes to a mixture of 90’s meets 2016. This EP is nothing short of an education for the masses.

The title track Jungle Came First slams straight in with a bassline heavy horn intro which builds into something that can only be described as full on bouncy upfront jungle. Percussion patterns link effortlessly with elastic bass that will no doubt appeal to previous fans of Serial Killaz production.

Switching into beautiful atmospheric pads and reverbed vocal samples, the intro of Sub Dub certainly sets a different tone. The progression from the intro is effortless and the whole track has a certain element of calm and tranquility which takes the listener on a rolling journey while still forcing them to nod their head to the infectious kick and snare.

Tubes and Springs is in a similar style to Sub Dub and although slightly more upbeat with its drum patterns and driving bass, it’s easy to hear how well both tracks compliment each other. What really makes this track though, is the crafty under the kick bassline that will shake you to your core.

Taking elements of various Serial Killaz roots, Prophecy follows that familiar route of reggae samples aplenty and jolly organ samples before crashing down with chopped Amen breaks and plenty of wicked drum programming. This one is certainly for the original die hard junglists!

African Drums finishes off the EP and provides a nice blend of everything so far and tosses them into a big mixing pot. As the track moves forwards, so does the elements of production as if the longer you listen, the more things develop.

Prestige – Insane People EP [Serial Killaz]


To get more of the very latest news faster than anyone then subscribe to our feed : CLICK HERE

Alex Prestige has a string of drum and bass hits to his name and now he brings that almighty force to the legendary Serial Killaz label with the ‘Insane People’ EP. Full of B Movie inspired samples and a combination of dancefloor smashers and head rocking beats, this EP will fit into any DJs virtual record box whatever their requirements.

‘Flea’ kicks off proceedings with its grungy bassline and simplistic beat structure that gels with the overall tune structure like Super Glue. It’s a relentless piece of jump up that rarely stops to give you a breather.

You have no doubt already heard ‘Way It Is’. It’s been almost impossible to get away from this tune over the last 3 months and to be honest, it’s had such a well deserved reception it’s no wonder why. With its DJ friendly intro and crushing swing beats it’s certainly a deadly weapon and will have crowds bouncing like nobody’s business.

‘Stressed Out’ takes a totally different approach with vintage oriental samples leading the way for a mere 20 seconds before crashing into a deadly drop of destruction. This one is certainly firing on all cylinders!

The title track of the EP ‘Insane People’ gives a false pretence of calm, building up with pads, and soft hi hats but that’s about as relaxing as it gets. When Alex Prestige makes a bonkers track he really does set his mind to it and this one is certainly no exception.

‘Injury’ has a similar build as ‘Insane People’ although leads into a totally different direction. Rather than crazy midrange bass lines, this one opts for growling, sliced bass notes, crunchy snares and haunting pads.

Don’t sleep on this, it’s a massive collection of brand new beats for your ear.

T>I – Circuits EP – Part 2 [Serial Killaz Recordings]


To get more of the very latest news faster than anyone then subscribe to our feed : CLICK HERE

Following on from the success of Micky Finn and Vital Elements anthem ‘So Good’ the Serial Killaz label isn’t letting up and now hits you with a two part EP project.

T>I, one of a handful of producers responsible for bringing raw 90’s vibes back to drum & bass without following the same old route of ‘back to the old school’. Championed by DJ Hype and DJ Rap, T>I has already had a huge amount of hits on the underground and his latest pending releases under Serial Killaz will be no exception.

If you know your upfront drum and bass or not, you will have most certainly heard plenty of T>I’s tracks being supported by most if not all of the A list DJ circuit. Virtual record boxes have continued to be stocked with dubplate after dubplate by one of the hardest working producers our scene has seen for years.

Don’t get it twisted, this isn’t a ragga jungle explosion with a plethora of Amen beats – this is pure rolling sublow drum and bass and it’s coming in not one but two parts! Sample spotters hold tight.

High energy beats and bass combined with mid 90’s production influences are in abundance. Top scale bass lines that flip the script from ‘Changes’, deep and dark vibes in the form of ‘Hammerhead’ and music to make even the stiffest of ravers shuffle in the form of ‘Watcha Man’. This EP has it all and it’s taking no prisoners.

‘Circuits’ is being released as two separate EP’s, part one incoming 10th June followed by part two later on 24th June. Watch out for a bonus track from the album which is soon to be offered as a free download via the Serial Killaz Soundcloud. This is a massive package and certainly not one to sleep on.

Coming soon on the Serial Killaz release schedule is an EP from their very own Yorkshire ripper, Kitcha.

Watch the ride..

General Levy meets Bonnot - Forward
General Levy meets Bonnot – Forward

General Levy needs no introduction, just shout ‘Booyaka booyaka’ at any rave and listen to the roar of the crowd chanting ‘When the General ah pass’. Mix a legend like this with a true Italian underground soldier Bonnot (Multi award winning artist who DJ’s & produces for Dead Prez) and you really can expect music of the highest grade for all Junglist dem.
If that wasn’t enough the album also features Serial Killaz, Ed Solo, Ricky Tuff, MissMykela, Numa Crew & DJ Ferro – got your attention now right?

Switching seamlessly between Jungle, Drum & Bass, Drumstep and Dancehall ‘Forward’ is all about Levy celebrating 20 years at the top of his game and with the help of some friends this album really shows what a formidable team Levy & Bonnot are, onwards and 4ward indeed.

Highlights on the album are many from the infectious Jungle vibes of Like A Train & That’s What We Blaze to the match made in heaven collaboration with Jungle kings Serial Killaz on Success to the Drum & Bass banger ‘Jah Alone’. The vibes don’t stop there as Put It Pon Dem (mixed by Jamaican artist/producer Alborosie) & Genuine Woman come correct with a true Dancehall flavor. Amongst the many great future classics we also must mention Playa Hata, a forward thinking Drum & Bass / Dancehall hybrid which really shows the diversity and direction of this album.

20 years on and the legendary General Levy along with Bonnot and friends continue to bring havoc on the dance floor and keep the jungle vibes alive.
