Culture Shock – ‘Renaissance’

Culture Shock

Arguably drum & bass’ most ground breaking producer, CULTURE SHOCK continues his upward trajectory with the sixth entry in his acclaimed SEQUENCE SERIES – ‘Renaissance’.After a string of dancefloor focused singles, the track mirrors his 2018 Hottest Record ‘There For You’ by bringing his musical side to the forefront. ‘Renaissance’ is a vocal driven, melodic masterpiece which sounds just as comfortable on the radio as on a club system. 2019 is already shaping up to be a pivotal year for the London producer, as in May he brings his SEQUENCE SERIES to room 1 of the iconic fabric nightclub.

↪ Pre-order SNB050 –

Through its 10-year history, Skankandbass has been dedicated to the official promotion of drum & bass, and providing a platform for up-and-coming talent. It was through the launch of its record label that they took it to the next level, and since its first release in late 2015, Skankandbass Records has provided an exposure platform that is second to none for some of the scene’s most exciting newcomer producers.

To see the successes of the label alumni, you need not look any further than the tracklist of SNB50. Skankandbass’ most ambitious release yet, the various artists EP features the reworking of five of the most distinct cuts from the label’s short history.

Recent Metalheadz signee Grey Code’s excellent track ‘Veilig’ is given a hypnotic rework by Data 3, while Mitekiss (fresh off the release of his debut LP on Hospital) is remixed by Shogun residents Deadline. Critical signee Cruk, the extremely talented Klinical, and Particle (whose Original Nuttah bootleg tore through the scene last year) round off the release, all with stellar efforts.

Releasing on Friday 19th April 2019, SNB050 is a testament to the incredible talent which Skankandbass has always attempted to shine a light on, and will be celebrated with a takeover of room three of the iconic fabric London on the same night of release.

Kings Of The Rollers – On The Run (feat. Queen Rose)

Buy or Stream ‘Kings Of The Rollers LP’ Here:

Leaders of the new generation and purveyors of dancefloor chaos Serum, Voltage and Bladerunner return to the frontline of drum & bass with their debut, self-titled album ‘Kings Of The Rollers’. Whilst each has their own high-grade production style, these three royals have managed to create a sum greater than their parts, as they steamroll through all the rules to deliver an absolute bruiser of an LP.

Across seventeen tracks expect up-front rollers, techy 2-step beats and pure knockout D+B bangers, complemented with slick jazzy numbers and a wide variety of vocal-lead tracks. It’s safe to say they’ve lived up to the hype with their most dynamic and diverse release to date.

Amongst the carnage highlights include ‘You Got Me’. A towering tear-out beast ladened with thrashing amens and a thundering bassline that’s ready to push every speaker to it’s limits. Low frequency growler ‘Shella’ is peppered with steppy jungle nuances, with Mancunian dance music innovator Chimpo featuring on both production and vocals for an all-round roughneck sheller. ‘Round Here’ is a brazen jungle prowler with Bristolian lyricist Redders at the helm for a future classic anthem.

Whilst being predominantly known for their heavyweight productions and outrageous D+B screamers, the new album also showcases a variety of different flavours. Jungle roller ‘On The Run’ features the smooth spoken word of Queen Rose and ‘Tisno’ brings a warm steppy swing, inspired by their time spent at the very first Hospitality On The Beach.

Hospital’s three kings have set the scene on fire with their electrifying DJ sets and headline festival performances. Their new ‘Royal Rumble‘ tour takes them all over the UK in 2019 with shows in London, Bristol, Brighton, Manchester and beyond.
