Big things coming from the critical camp once again with Mefjus and Kasra teaming up to bring you some more ridiculous beats.
This still maintains the classic Mefjus flavour, but feels a little different. Hopefully He’s been working on a progression from his breakthrough sound, which, while awesome, has been heavily rinsed by him and his imitators.
release date: 18/03/13
Ok, so I’m a little late with this, but better late than never eh!?
You know Kasra’s a badman behind the decks and with an envious record crate to boot, this one’s a no brainer.
Up for grabs this christmas are some long awaited VIP’s and remixes coming straight from kasras dub-plate, sex-fest of a record box.
£7.99 will bag you a vinyl with So Real (Mefjus Remix) and Surface VIP aswell as 16 tracks over download! Not bad.
Not all these tracks are new, this is more of a retrospective on some bangers that have been lost in the years of new music and deserve a dust off from the archives for another rinse-out.
Critical are leading the way when it comes to keeping vinyl alive, I think Kasra understands that its turning into more of a collectors thing. I dont know many people that go out of their way to bag £30 of records each week, its much easier and cheaper to stock up on digital nowadays.
You can only bag this bundle from Surus: http://www.surus.co.uk/Critical-Music/Surface-VIP-So-Real-(Mefjus-Remix)-20167.aspx
from the 7th Dec.
The vinyl will be available from other outlets shortly after.
More new music coming out of the woodwork today, and its not even a monday!
Something a little different from usual coming from the Critical camp this time and if the names are anything to go by, you know its gonna be a smasher; Foreign Concept, Sabre & Riya. Nice.
Now Riya is pretty much the queen of liquid dnb, with a rock solid foundation paired up alongside Lenzman or Total Science. She’s not a total stranger to the Critical sound though with smash hits like Enei’s No Fear, but I wouldn’t expect to see her name next to these other two heavyweights on Critical.
Its a good combo though! She’s tamed the snarling beats of Foreign Concept with a smooth deep roller that still maintains touches of their tech dnb roots with industrial style percussion.
Sabre’s no stranger to deep rolling beats, and a really nice match to Riya. An upbeat jazzy number with elegant off key piano licks piercing and reverberating through Riya’s dulcet tones. I could picture this one in a jazz club surrounded by smoke and red lights.
Overall; lovely listening and a really different taste from Critical Music.
Out now on Surus! Only 50 Vinyl copies of this pre-release edition available, all come with a sticker and poster!
