“Harder Than Hell/The Shivers” – Eddie K (Hench) [SINGLE] September 3, 2009Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.
Introducing the first 12” from Eddie K on the HENCH imprint, two chunky slabs of dubstep from this young, talented Bristol-based producer. This is already a big favourite of Caspa and where this man leads, everyone else follows.
First up is ‘Who’s The Hardest’. Staying true to his D&B roots, Eddie K brings us some fresh, fruity jungle flavours, with ‘Who’s The Hardest’. With a ragga vocal sample and repeated clicking of a trigger in the background, the tune smashes into the drop with some heavy bassline action and hard-hitting beats. Bringing the jungle influences into the dubstep sphere, ‘Who’s The Hardest’ has a very strong presence about it – so, beware cowards!
Flip over for ‘The Shivers’. Kicking off with a bold, brash opening, orchestral strings, and booming beat, the Dr Who-style synth lead, and faded ominous vocal sampling, are spooky and atmospheric. The tune almost twists into the drop with a sudden drum roll spasm as the sci-fi vocal sample repeats, “this is a journey into music and sound”. With a pounding beat and classic sci-fi effects, ‘The Shivers’ is a fantastic piece of badness.
Already a favourite of Caspa’s, this is getting big support from other big dubstep players, including Plastician, N Type, Hatcha and Rossi B, get hold of this as soon as you can – it’s going to be a massive hit.
