Ben & Lex's Haterz is thisisbreaks.com's Single of the Week!

1 comments
 


Ben & Lex are two of the hottest breaks producers and DJs from the UK's south west, with a string of fresh, classic tracks under their belts.

They have somehow outdone themselves here with pure unadulterated stripped to the bone breaks and bass number, which takes the duo's trademark extended lead basslines and re-samples them to keep the variation interesting.

The rolling vocal hook is reminiscent of past tracks such as Raw to the Floor and syncs well with other leading rap-led dance. The beat has an underlying bashment feel to it, with some classic breakage running over the top. About two minutes in a pure "amen" break drops in to great effect, flexing neatly with the raspy bassline before dropping out into some infectious build up action.

Just to get the track pumping a bit more in the midsection, there is a cameo 4/4 and breaks mash-up. This is an outstanding floorfiller. (SS)

Is Ben & Lex's Haterz the tune of 2009 so far?

1 comments
 


This week for me sees the release of one of the strongest tracks of the year. Ben & Lex's Haterz drops on Future Perfect and it slams! A catchy re-sampled bass line sits under searing rap hooks and beats that vary in style but not in quality. It's impressed me so much that I've awarded it a rare five stars in the review section later this week.

Glade Replayed and Black Canvas Guest Mix

Hurrah its that time of year again when we dust off the Glade festival archives from last year and relive the memories. Over the past few years we, on the Beatz and Bobz show, have replayed classic sets from Will White, Plump DJs, Baobinga and ID and this year we bring you..... us :)


Big Rave Crowd Shot from glade 2008

Thats right its 'Rave Hat' time as we remember the cocktail fueled hour of rave that was me and Lex at Glade 2008.

And if the thought of listening to us isnt enough we also have a super excluive guest mix from Black Canvas whose album 'Rise' is out on Cool and Deadly very very soon.

So then tune in this Monday, 15th June, for 2 bumping hours of awesomeness on the one and only NSB Radio, also full details on the rest of the 'Glade Replayed' featuring sets from Deekline, Drumattic Twins, Chris Carter, Noisia, Rico Tubbs, Aquasky, Quest & Ken Mac, plus loads more can be found on nuskoolbreaks.

Myagi 'The Heat' + Remix Pack

0 comments
 


Lil present for all my readers today a free tune and the remix parts to the new Myagi tune :) yay

US producer Myagi and this guy's latest release is getting big support from the likes of Orbital, Utah Saints, Meat Katie, DJ Dan and more.

'The Heat' is all about big electro house, mangled breaks and chunky basslines. Dropping thick kicks, complimented by big builds and lots of drops, this one is another fat number with everything chucked in to craft a peak time track that is a fantastic suit to any progressive or energetic sets that need it.


Now the remix is just for fun but I'm going to get working on a minimal remix and maybe use the parts to do re-edits for the Ben and Lex sets.... bleep

Also check out Sole Claw 'Goth Chick Hand Job (Skool Of Thought Remix)' [Pure Phunk Recordings] which is quite old now but still kills it on the dancefloor :D

Anyways on to the downloads..... oooh and if you have a go and doing a remix and you think I'll like it whack it in my drop box.

Ben and Lex 'Haterz' [Future Perfect]

Ben and Lex 'Haterz' [Future Perfect]

Brand new release from me and Lex coming out on Future Perfect soon..

After the smashing success of RackRuin's acclaimed ScitzoVIP which has found its way into the boxes of top jocks such as Sinden, Fake Blood, Zinc, Boy 8 Bit and more - we are rolling out another smasher in the form of this killer double A side original release from non other than the South West superstars known as Ben and Lex.

First up is 'Haterz' - a gnarly, ruffneck belter with B-more styled beats, enough old skool breakbeats to make Run DMC and Jammaster J do the running man and a reese bassline which will blow your socks off. A side-swipe at the chinstrokers with its cheeky vocal sample and seamless blend of influences this tune has been destroying clubs all over the globe and is an essential battle tool to wreck the dancefloor.

Up next is 'Mugz' with a windy and edgy b-line, tech beats and a fusion of jazzy, detroit harmonics and atmosphere. A groovier addition to the release, its tight blend of electro-techno sensibilities with monster bassweight holds enough technical trickery to keep the ravers on their toes. Blam!






Released by: Future Perfect
Release/catalogue number: FPRR08
Release date: Jun 8, 2009
