RELEASED: 20TH SEPT. 2010
2. ShockOne feat. MC Spyda âChronic 2010â
3. ShockOne âPolygon (ShockOne VIP)â
4. ShockOne feat. Metrik & Phetsta âTrue Believer (Phetstaâs Dubstep rework)â
ShockOne feat. Reija Lee âPolygon (Dirtyphonics Remix)â
When the debut Radio1 play for a track is on Pendulumâs Essential Mix and when its first outing at Fabric is from the executioner Andy C (getting an instant rewind!) you know its already destined for anthem status. Winners of the âBest Newcomer Producerâ at the 2009 Drum and Bass Arena awards, the five strong production and live act Dirtyphonics have in the past year created some of the most boundary pushing, genre hopping records in dance music. With a string of tracks already out on Shimonâs AudioPorn label, this remix of âPolygonâ for Viper is set to be their biggest track to date. Moulding ShockOneâs original into an electro stomper, which then morphs into one of the biggest DnB drops of the year so far, this track has sent clubs into a frenzy in the past few weeks and will delight those who like their bpmâs and minds twisted to the max.
ShockOne feat. MC Spyda âChronic 2010â
A great MC once said âthe original was a killer, but this one is iller, certified, bona fide, dance floor fillerâ and never has this been more apt when considering ShockOneâs 2010 version of âChronicâ. Ragga tinged dancehall drums alongside huge cavernous low-end has made this track an instant favourite of the more grimy dancefloors and of those who like their Drum and Bass with a different step to the norm. The track features the unmistakable vocals of MC Spyda who as well as being one of the most in demand MCâs in the scene, has also been responsible for vocaling some of the biggest tracks in Drum and Bass, including teaming up with Pendulum and DJ Fresh for âTarantulaâ and Matrix & Futurebound for âKnite Riderzâ.
ShockOne âPolygon (ShockOne VIP)â
Once again featured in Pendulumâs recent Essential Mix for Radio1, the forums have been ablaze with excitement about the forthcoming release of the ShockOne VIP of âPolygonâ. For the last few months the dubplate has been rinsed all over the world with the speculation being that this would never see the light of day. However with a track this infectious, it would have been sacrilege not to give it a release. Taking the originals instantly recognisable clipped female vocal and adding a huge, set starting atmospheric half time intro, the track builds on the awesome hooks of the original, adding extra intensity to the drop, and then switching up and adding an acidic twist to the b-line to make this another essential re-fix of an already classic track.
ShockOne feat. Metrik & Phetsta âTrue Believer (Phetsta Dubstep rework)’
Taking the piano driven old school rave bomb of âTrue Believerâ and turning into something even more insane and grimey was never going to be an easy task, but in his dubstep remix, Phetsta has delivered in spades. Turning the paranoia up to 11, the original vocal is retuned over metallic bass and skipping jittering drums. This is as futuristic and dark as it comes. With Viper Recordings first dubstep track (ShockOneâs âAdachigahara’s Themeâ) staying at No.1 on the beatport dubstep charts for over a month (and still currently in the Top 100 over 73 weeks after its release), to say this is highly anticipated is an understatement. Equally at home over a range of bpm, fellow Perth resident Phetsta has seen releases on Aquaskyâs Passenger recordings and a string of releases on Simon Bassline Smithâs Technique recordings find their way into the boxes of Annie Mac, Pendulum, Andy C and Grooverider to name just four!
