Specimen A & Atomic Drop - B2b EP



Specimen A team up with Atomic Drop and go Back to Back with Cheshire Cat to make a 3 track EP of all things Breaks and Bass. Keeping the focus on a retro sound the lads mix elements of garage , house , breaks and bassline into this EP to make something truly ‘UK’ in flavour. All weighing in at 128 bpm, they kick off the EP with 'Back to Back'.

Eerie pads, distorted bass booms and a vocal chant cue you up for a 4x4 onslaught of basses before it quickly makes way for a broken beat and more vocals. Next up, ‘Bust up the speaker’ is a more light hearted affair. Kicking off from the get go with a simple bass hook into a garage beat.The breakdown is packed with old skool rave stabs and breaks from another era before all making way for a 4x4 drop re interpreting the main hook. The 3rd and final track is a big song for all the weed smokers out there. ‘Ganja’ is a heavy weight breaks roller with a broken beat and super low basses rolling up the EP in a truly dope way.
