A - The Butcher Of Bakersfield.
AA - Predator VIP.
The Future Jungle Blog's label of the year, Switchblade Digital has been on fire this year, with 12 consistently excellent releases under it's belt so far. Label owner, Abyss has now ventured the Switchblade brand into the physical realm with the very first release on sister label, Switchblade Vinyl, 'The Ardcore Schwarzenegger EP' by Abyss himself.
Featuring two cuts heavily inspired by a certain '80's action movie star and heavyweight, bass and breaks focussed, 1993-1994 jungle tracks.
Opening with 'The Butcher Of Bakersfield', a rolling, and heavily chopped amen number complimented by a classic '80's sci-fi film score and dialogue (the clue is in the title!).
It's companion track, 'Predator VIP' hides it's influences in plain sight and pairs a panicked string section with rapid-fire, chopped amen breaks, a monsterous growling bassline and even more iconic movie samples.
To sum it up 'The 'Ardcore Schwarzenegger EP' is an incredibly cinematic sounding, double A-Side release, which like it's inspiration, takes no prisoners. It has been professionally mastered and cut by Curved Pressings, and is a strictly 200 limited run, 12" vinyl only release.
The 12" is available for £7.99 plus postage and packaging, and available to buy from the link below, so please show your support for 'The 'Ardcore Schwarzenegger EP' release, and here's to more Switchblade Vinyl 12" releases.
