Killbox consists of two names which have become synonymous with drum & bass – Ed rush and Audio. And after decades playing out in countries across the world, as well as a string of releases which litter the music collections of listeners everywhere, it’s no surprise they’ve become such legendary figures. This year, they’re about to bring their extensive experience together for a formidable new project, one which will sway the genre’s tide and once more see them standing at the helm of its creative direction. The underground overlords are here to filter your entire world into darkness.
Even as a standalone artist, Audio is revered across all circles. From his hard-hitting productions, to his inked love for 174bpm, he’s remained uncompromising throughout his career. With an ethos that’s stretched through a continually impressive output, which has seen 5 albums, countless 12”s and over 15 years of production, he’s solidified his position within the scene’s core.

No one would argue that Ed Rush changed the face of drum & bass, breaking out of every paradigm which was set up before him. After being an influential part within London’s burgeoning nightlife, he began to craft a sound which marked a new era in hardcore. Extracting darkside jungle classics from a realm which hadn’t yet built its foundations, the producer pushed its developing forefront alongside Optical, his partner at Virus. Moving into new territories, he soon teamed up with another heavyweight. What followed was an album with huge historical implications, ones which carry forward into today…

And this forthcoming EP from the duo represents exactly what they’re about: a no compromising return to the sound which made their era of drum & bass so recognisable. Whilst opening track Bound to Others is eerily foreboding with its extra-terrestrial samples and aggressive LFO, Hype Cycle is a metallic, clanking riddim, one which throws down to darker, techier depths – otherwise known as Johnny L – See Red on crack. Pitch Fork channels a skittering, old-school vibe, with pounding drums and a climatic drop into chaos… And lastly, Surge ends on a climax. Hitting harder with every break, you’re taken into a chasm of snapping beats and cascading drum patterns. This EP is the introduction you’ve been waiting for.

Together, they present Killbox. The merging of two intimidating musical minds, prepare for a union like no other. With Ram Records acting as their platform for debuting new music, this is about to be a defining moment for drum & bass.

Optical & BTK – Infection [Dutty Audio]

Beatport Exclusive 29th Jan
Release Date February 12th, 2016

Infection jumps straight at you, jumps straight into life, and you’ll catch the virus immediately. The initial repeated sample makes way for a banging beat, which in turn draws you into the surrounding atmospherics. Everything builds up nicely, with warped electronics launching into massive swirls of menacing bass. As fitting a composition courtesy of BTK and Optical, the production levels are high, with layers of sound sweeping in and out. The producers isolate things at the mid-point, before ripping the track back up to finish strongly. The beats’ll grab you, the firing low end’ll hold you, and you won’t be able to escape the Infection.

HLZ – Duel

Out 20th April.

Debuting on Warm Communications last year alongside Need For Mirrors & Mikal, HLZ has gone solo & we can’t think of a better release to announce it. “Dying Memories” combines psychedelic guitars with punishing Optical style drums and bass. “Duel” on the flip is a straight up no frills roller with it’s relentless momentum. Double a side drum & bass if we do say so ourselves.

Ed Rush – Boxcar [Piranha Pool]

Ed Rush
‘Scarabs’ / ‘Box Car’
1. Scarabs
2. Box Car

Label: Piranha Pool Recordings *LAUNCH*
Cat #: PPR001
Genre: Drum & Bass
Full Release: 06-10-2014

An artist synonymous with Drum and Bass, Ed Rush has become a byword for cutting edge, forward thinking beats. Moving through the sounds of hip hop and electro in his early musical years, Ed Rush soon became interested in the emerging London jungle scene. Showing his innate ability to manipulate chopped breakbeats and piles of sub-low bass, it wasn’t long before Ed Rush and Nico dropped the huge ‘Bludclot rtattack’. The first classic to Ed Rush’s name, this proved to be a platform for another collaboration with DJ Trace. Simultaneously developing his own style whilst pushing the boundaries of a genre, classics such as ‘The Mutant’ and ‘Guncheck’ put Ed Rush’s attitude injected productions firmly on the map.

One of the pioneers of new sound dubbed Techstep, Ed Rush soon teamed up within another leading light, Optical; to form what would become one of the most progressive production teams in the scene. In 1998, Ed Rush & Optical released an album universally recognized as changing the landscape of Drum and Bass forever with the legendary, ‘Wormhole’ on Virus Recordings. Still regarded as one of the main catalysts for the Neuro and Techstep sound, ‘Wormhole’ paved the way for household names such as Noisia, Bad Company and many more.

Since then Ed Rush has released a plethora of genre-defining tracks and albums, both solo and with his partner in crime, Optical. Still busy at work on a new Ed Rush & Optical LP due in late 2013, Ed Rush is not merely content with helping shape the scene and remaining one of its most consistent producers. Beginning his own venture, he now looks to the future with the birth of Piranha Pool. An outlet for showcasing new talent and veterans alike, Piranha Pool represents what will be the future of Drum and Bass; so it’s fitting that its first release comes from its creator, Ed Rush.

‘Boxcar’ [Drum & Bass]
The flipside sees Ed Rush change the pace but lose none of the attitude. Featuring rolling drums and ethereal vocals, Ed continues to bring the pain with serrated bass keeping the rave in check. Maintaining the same top level production as the A-side but pushing a different vibe, ‘Boxcar’ shows the versatility to Ed Rush’s productions and caps off a stunning debut from Piranha Pool.
