Everyone loves the word dubplate. Itâ€™s something thatâ€™s bashed about the scene pretty loosely these days but whatâ€™s serious amiss is that actual dubplates were pressed to promote tracks before promo copies were even considered.
Taking that fact into consideration you wouldnâ€™t think Serial Killaz would even touch a release under the title â€˜Dubplateâ€™ without it being of serious quality would you? Of course not!
This EP from Limited is firing all kinds of shots - bring forth the flamethrowers.
The title track, â€˜Dubplateâ€™ provided a staple amount of reggae infused new school jungle although the switch here is that the bassline layering is a combination of hefty subs and glossy metallic tones that physically rip through metal speaker mesh. If youâ€™re watching the red lines, this one is a serious warning to sound engineers.
â€˜Gang Relatedâ€™ has been bashed to bits by DJs currently supporting this EP and for a valid reason. Itâ€™s a nasty piece of filth that belongs in the gutter, the type of track you would only dare to drop in a really moody dance. Not one for the festival, not one for the radio - just smoke, lazers and darkness.
Switching things 360 degrees with â€˜Colourâ€™, a bright and upbeat number with plenty of funk and wobbles. Itâ€™s screaming out to be sandwiched into something equally as devastating and for those that understand the true meaning of double dropping, itâ€™s going to be right up your street. Dangerous on itâ€™s own, murderation in a link up.
â€˜Hit The Streetsâ€™ brings the vibe into new territory with plenty of panic ridden vocals, rumbling basslines and skippy swing breaks. Another moody track yet totally different to â€˜Gang Relatedâ€™ due to itâ€™s upbeat breakbeat structure and vocal driven atmosphere.
Lastly â€˜Readyâ€™ and boy is this tune a big one! Incredibly well known vocal samples, gunshot effects and no-nonsense production make this an amazing end to the EP. The reversed speech effects combine effortlessly with the recurring â€œone twoâ€ which will have any crowd humming along (which certainly seems to be the in thing at present!).
Shots from the double chamber, Limited is set to cause a ruckus with his new EP this year and Serial Killaz are certainly not standing in his way!.
