Slugrave 'The Complete 1st Year Archive'

Slugrave The Complete 1st Year Archive

We came, We saw, We slowed it down.

We are one! What an amazing year, big gigs like Glastonbury, Big Chill, Cultural Vibes, and smaller mini sized Slugraves in Exeter and London. We have been busy on the remix front to (soon to be revealed) and have released a ‘mixtape’ every month, give your take.

The good news is we won’t be slowing anything down on the mixtape, gig or music front, in fact, that side of things will keep going at a most un sluggy pace.

We will be playing some excellent festivals in 2012 and will be letting you know as and when we have more details (*STOP PRESS* Glade Festival information now in).

We’d like to thank everyone who has supported us so far. Huge thanks to Tom Middleton, Joe Muggs, Lex Shellard, Damon Baxter, Dave Green, Giles Looker, Martyn Riley, The Beat Hotel at Glastonbury, The Sound of the Cosmos at The Big Chill, Cultural Vibes, Freddy Pimms, Paul Mcgee, Oli Kenney, Chex, Biff, Glade Festival, Aeon Festival, City arts and Music Project and everyone else we have forgotten who supplied a mixtape, came to our events, danced and enjoyed Slugrave.

Please continue to support us by downloading, liking, sharing and spreading the sluggy word.

Richie & Benny

We have received many, many emails from you requesting re-ups from our mixtape archive and so we are pleased to announce that we have made the entire mix series downloadable to you again, so slug out your ipods.

Lethalness 'Jawbreaker / Rocky Dog' [APEM032] OUT NOW!


BUY IT NOW FROM BEATPORT :: http://www.beatport.com/release/jaw-breaker/859323

Continuing APE Towers' mission into the land of 140 Jungle and all things bass music n breaksy we are very very proud to welcome back the mighty Spanish bassmeisters Lethalness to kick off 2012 in style!!

First up 'Jawbreaker' a rolling nasty dirty techy 140 jungle behemoth that harks back to the dark and gnarly days of early Virus & Prototype badboys... Tight, punchy drums and twisted distorted bass so badass that will slay a mofo in a minute!

'Rocky Dog' no less of a beast and is a full on bassfest in its own right. Leaning towards the dubstep end of the 140 market but still sat firmly in the land of uptempo breaks it's packed chockablock with heavy beats, tight synths from electro leads to dubstep wobbles and the odd classic break thrown in for good measure. This is the perfect party shakin partner to Jawbreaker!

We looking forward to an even bigger year and this is the perfect way to kick it off!!
