TERRORRYTHMUS - Dubcore Volume 16 [12" + Digital on Sozialistischer Plattenbau]

A1 - Something Unreal
A2 - Sike
B1 - Low Drop
B2 - Shake That
B3 - Depression

One of the best representers of the rave angle of Juke and Footwork is German based producer/DJ, Terrorrythmus, known of his unique style combining strong basslines, trancy elements, immense boucing as well as hardcore mentality into his tunes.

One of his latest and noteworthy releases came out a while ago on his locals Sozialistischer Plattenbau. This was the launching release of the label for this year, but never too late for such intense stuff like this 5-track bang in here.

'Dubcore Vol.16' presents Terrorrythmus offering 5 fresh personal vibes of him, stronger than ever.
Kicking off with the happy ravy 'Something Unreal' turning a happy hardcore vibe into Juke, while 'Sike' is maybe the biggest killa track of the whole release bouncing hard to the bone! Beware of that! On the flipside we got the experimental juke aspect of 'Low Drop', then it's 'Shake That', which is a certain junglistic beast with firing hardcore kicks, but if its not too much there's also another juke amen breakin vibe entitled 'Depression'
That's the right title when a record like this one comes to an end, isn't it?
This release is available on limited edition of 12" Vinyl and Digital too.

1/ Welome To The Asylum.
2/ Nuclear Disaster.
3/ Silent Hill.
4/ HeatWave (Part A).
5/ HeatWave (Part B).
6/ Ghost Of Jebedia.
7/ Jebedia Lives On.
8/ Temptation.
9/ Escape From Miami

The tune-making powerhouse that is Deadly Nighshade is back once again with another top notch collection of breakbeat hardcore cuts, from the darkside, with the release of the 'Welcome To tHE Asylum' album. It's time for the Strictly NuSkool Blog to face it's incarnation... and enter the "Asylum"!!!

We are first introduced to the sound of madness with the album's title track,
'Welcome To The Asylum' which layers rolling amen breaks, and burbling technoid synths notes over hysterical laughing and dissonant sound FX.  

Up next we reach critical meltdown with 'Nuclear Disaster', a claustrophobia inducing darkcore cut utilising 'Radio Babylon' breaks, swirling mentasmic snarls and blaring Public Enemy style air horns to create a perfect sense of unease. 
The darkness continues with 'Silent Hill', which sees Deadly Nightshade combine house of horror bell chimes, razor-sharp hoover stabs and relentless breakbeat patterns with choice, fight flick samples.

The pitch blackness abates for a short while with 'HeatWave (Part A)', which opens to the sounds of euphoric pads and trance style bleeps, before unleashing a flurry of breakneck beats, moody atmospherics and ominous synth stabs. 
'HeatWave (Part B)' provides an alternate take of it's other half, by extending the originals running time and injecting rasping, industrial screeches paired with a thumping, 4/4 backbeat.

The second half of the album introduces us to another two part musical saga, beginning with the haunting 'Ghost Of Jebedia', a thundering darkside cut which just oozes cinematic menace. 
The sequel soon follows with 'Jebedia Lives On' which offers up a slightly lighter touch in comparison to it's companion piece, yet still keeps it's dark tone.

'Tempatation' up next sees vintage hip-hop breaks do battle with Clive Barker's very own Hell Priest, set to a backdrop of pitch black, hypnotic synth riffs and Belgian style rave drones. 
It's at this point we reach the end of or internment and are presented with 'Escape From Miami', an adrenaline soaked, energetic hardcore number which expertly mixes together both euphoric and menacing elements with it's use of soaring pads and abrasive 'Anasthasia' stabs. 

In conclusion, Deadly Nightshade has once again come up trumps with yet another storming collection of darkside future classics. If you appreciate the more sinister side of rave music then you need this one in your collection!!!

The Breakbeatscientist's top pick of the bunch... 'Temptation'!!!

The 'Welcome To tHE Asylum' album is available to download now from Deadly Nightshade's Bandcamp page for £7.00, or more if you wish to support the label and artists to fund future releases.

[VMRDT122] Dr Prozak - Rude Boy EP [Viral-Mental Records Juno Download Exclusive Available Now!!!]

1/ Fuc The Beat 
2/ Rude Boy.
3/ Info.
4/ Rastafari.
5/ DROMA - Damaged Minds (Dr Prozak Remix).

Dr Prozak makes a welcome return to Viral-Mental Records and brings with him a quintet of heavyweight jungle and drum & bass bombs, with the release of the appropriately titled 'Rude Boy EP'.

Opening track 'Fuc The Beat' employs a furious blend of manic rave pianos, tearing amens and powerful Reese bass blasts to create an intense slice of oldskool flavoured jungle which is guaranteed to to raise the roof wherever it's dropped.

Title track 'Rude Boy' vertures into dancefloor friendly, drum & bass territory with it's utilization of a heavyweight, buzzing bassline, rolling Boymerang breaks paired with a compellingly catchy and gloriously uplifting, ascending piano motif.

'Info' up next takes inspiration from an early nineties, pop-ragga hit and gives it a 2019, dark jungle makeover complete with dub reggae, piano skanks rasping bass riff and scuttling, skeletal breakbeats intersepersed with adrenalising, amen inserts.

Things get outright rootical with the dubwise, jungle stepper 'Rastafari'. A track which expertly combines a selection of tearing amen breaks and droning bass notes over choice, Rasta vocal snippets and infectiously head-nodding, off-beat guitar licks

To conclude the collection, Dr Prozak remixes fellow V.M.R. labelmate DROMA's 'Damaged Minds' and gives it a fierce junglistic update, complete with jazzy Rhodes keys and monstrous, subsonic bassline set to a steady, stepping breakbeat.

Anyone who consders themselves an afficionado of authentic, contemporary jungle will definitely find the 'Rude Boy EP' ticking all the required boxes. No jump-up to be found in here, this one's for the serious headz out there!!!

Dr Prozak;s 'Rude Boy EP' is available to download now exclusively from Juno Download for 2 weeks, before being available to all good Viral-Mental Records digital and streaming stores.
