Rat Records brings it again, as always! This time we have the main man, Deekline, contributing to 2 remixes of breakbeat royalty, Slyde. One with Laidback, one with Ed Solo. Seriously!? Dayum son!
With the Laidback remix, expect what you may consider trap, blur the lines a little, then call it breakbeat..Room shaking subs and drums slap you about while the lead jumps up and down, layers itself again with yet another room shaking sub into mad hands in the hair action.
What comes and slaps you in the face next? The Deekline and Ed Solo remix. Initially, the sub bass is ridiculously low, the lead is outrageously high! As the tune progresses you realise this is the work of two evil masterminds and it's all how it was intended. It matures on every possible level into a proper party anthem, would you expect any less!?
This label was founded by N-Type in 2009 and over the last four years it has released some of the finest dubstep from the deeper, darker end of the spectrum.
As time has moved on other genres have started to appear on the label and so it is that for this new compilation of all exclusive material the label dips its toe into the waters of house, breaks and garage, as well as demonstrating plenty of the sound that made it so revered.

Warehouse Wax has had a strong year so far. Releases from Odeed & Wish, Madcap, Pressa, Sanxion and of course the Massive single and video from Austin & Vinyl Junkie Ft. Rachel Wallace – Can’t Go Back.
After all that, the label is finishing the year off with a bang. And definitely with the style and class you have come to expect from this scene leading entity.
“We’re Not Dead – The 3rd Chapter” boasts an impressive line up of artists that reads like a “who’s who” of worldwide bass music in 2013. So, what better way to see the year out? Here is just a sampling of those involved.
Vinyl Junkie, Sanxion, Wizard, RadioKillaZ, Terry Hooligan, King Yoof, Backdraft, Flashback, 601, Odeed & Wish, Strange Rollers, Eddie Voyager, Schema, Madcap, 100me, Skanx, Billy 'Daniel' Bunter and loads more
But… As always, it’s the music that does the real talking here. Label boss Vinyl junkie has teamed up with Sanxion to co-curate this album and picked only the biggest noises. Floating somewhere around breaks, bass, 140 & future jungle. The genres maybe loose but the impact isn’t. If you love hard hitting bass music with both an old skool and new skool vibe… you will love this album.
The album will also be released on a two-disc CD pack with DJ mixes of the tracks from Vinyl Junkie and Sanxion.
