Radio 1Xtra and son of jungle legend Kenny Ken steps up with his next musical offering on Simon Bassline Smith's Technique Recordings. "Let Go" draws on drumstep and dubstep, with chopped up vocals, massive builds, Rusko style synth screeches and plenty of brostep muscle. The D&B Rollers mix ups the tempo to the 170-175bpm range, whilst L While shakes things up in his version. Then there's the "More Than Ever VIP" which is a synth sizzled, 8 bit bleeping frenzy before the NSD VIP rounds the package with style.
Radio 1Xtra DJ Crissy Criss shows off his skills in the studio here in the "Now More Than Ever" EP on Simon Bassline Smith's label Technique. The title track pairs a familiar sample (see Pendulum circa '05) with gritty, gnarly bass, jittery synths and pumping drums. "Need Me" is a Circus meets Dub Police style dubstep venture with chirping screeches, grinding b-line and plenty of fun factor. "Gangsta" strips it back a bit and focuses more on clipped percussion and grouchy, squelching bass, whilst concluding cut "Everybody" rounds things off with another dose of brostep.
