Vital Elements & Micky Finn - So Good / True Guidance







For those lucky enough to be at the birth of Jungle in the 90’s you’d have undoubtedly come across the legendary Micky Finn who, packed with his arsenal of dubplates, led the charge and paved the way for Jungle and Drum & Bass as we know it today.

After a brief production hiatus, Micky’s back on the scene to lead the way once again. This time he’s teamed up with Vital Elements, one half of today’s Jungle pioneers Serial Killaz, who brings something very different to the table.

So Good certainly has a nod to Micky’s past, with vocals taken from the personally influenced jazz funk classic ‘Don’t Make Me Wait’ by the Peach Boys. Let’s make this clear; there’s nothing else nostalgic about it, So Good is a forward thinking, feel good beast that will be as infectious on the dance floor as it will on radio. With early support from S.P.Y to Logan D, So Good is set to land heavy with the masses.

On the flip we have True Guidance, a rare moment in music where barriers are smashed down and classics are made. It’s clear Micky & Vital Elements went all in on this one. It’s got bounce, balls and enough energy and vibes to rock festivals to sweaty basements. With vocal samples from the 80’s yard classic ‘Country Man’, these two once again show how moving forward with a glance to the past is done properly.

Not content with smashing up dance floors worldwide with their unique brand of Jungle, Serial Killaz have been building their foundation label; Serial Killaz Recordings. With prolific releases from the likes of Upgrade, Turno and Jam Thieves in the bag they continue pushing the movement forward with a slew of artists both new and established. This latest release drops just after the huge success of Cain1's and Angelo Pantin's lovers anthem "Young Love" with the ever talented works of T.I. coming soon.

Smooth - True Grit EP - Viper Recordings






Out Now :

Beatport direct: http://bit.ly/eraserbp


Smooth has laid a steady foundation with his Drum & Bass productions of late. Between his work as one half of Telekinesis with releases on labels such as Blackout Music, Eatbrain, and Mainframe – along with his last release on Viper, ‘WTF / Revenge’ which wrapped up 2015 with monstrous noise and support from: Wilkinson, Matrix & Futurebound, Calyx & Teebee, TC, Audio, Metrik, Mob Tactics, and more. Starting of 2016, Smooth’s ‘True Grit EP’ brings plenty more dance floor destruction to continue the Slovenian’s mark in D&B.

Leading the charge on the EP is ‘True Grit’. With occasional glimpses to the early days of rave, this track is nothing but forward thinking madness. You’ll need bags of energy to keep up with this one as ‘True Grit’ switches, changes and turns and every possible musical turn. Packed to the brim with attitude and balls this one’s not for the faint-hearted.

Next up is ‘Eraser’, which opens with a spacey atmospheric intro, only to get stripped back into a chunky underground banger. Going sparse on the riffs and heavy on the low end, ‘Eraser’ is a perfect draw for the early morning sets to get the crowd jumping.

Switching gears, ‘Oxygen’ rolls deep with the melodies and high on that feel good liquid vibe. Subtly epic in its own right, ‘Oxygen’ gives us an early peak to the coming summer vibes. It has weight, presence, and the ability to make you tingle all over.

Rounding off the EP is ‘Tinnitus’, a condition normally associated with the perception of noise or ringing in the eardrums. Smooth’s version is quite the opposite. After a brief intro, the full impact is laid out for all to bear witness, thundering drums and a huge bassline. A peak time dancefloor weapon has definitely been created here.

Cockney rudeboy King Yoof’s rooftop dub shack serves up fifty-seven flavors of dubplate in just over an hour of mixed musical madness. 

The smell of fresh acetate oozes from the speaker. Two thousand and sixteen percent pure and impossible to dilute in any fashion, doctors worldwide are calling for immunization using the King Yoof dubplate method. 

Well known in underground dancehalls, this powerful phenomenon is only recently being discovered by the public at large. When asked immediately after a clash, 9.5 out of 10 selectors preferred being killed by King Yoof than all other sounds combined.

The versatility DC Breaks deliver time and time again has been solidified with

this next output. After igniting festival stages worldwide with the heartfelt

crescendos of ‘Faithless’ and ‘Breathe’, which they dropped to crowds of

thousands last year, they’ve decided to flip the switch. ‘Bad Flow’ and ‘Bambino’

are fiercely reminiscent of the records that made the duo infamous. And they’re

returning to this signature sound, after reigning over the drum & bass genre’s

musical diversity.


‘Bad Flow’ is up first for the listener’s rude reawakening. Cut up by a robotic,

ominous vocal sample which slips between grinding subs and jutting drum

patterns, it’s a foreboding example of what to expect from the pair this summer.

A grating construction of fluctuating beats and snapping snares, yet pumped full

of stocky bass, it’s one of their most ominous records to date…


Rolling out next is ‘Bambino’, a clever take on its classic predecessor, one which

still detonates crowds even years after its release. Similar samples are spliced

and thrown into its mix, presenting a revamp that peddles itself on top of

snapping kick-drum and steroid driven distortion.


After closing the sold-out Alexandra Palace ‘Andy C All Night’ show last month,

anyone who wasn’t present for their tear out assault will wish they had been.

This single not only prepares you for their forthcoming shows – it also

demonstrates what the producers have to offer in the coming months.
