1: Sam Binga - Mind & Spirit (Breakage Remix) [feat. Rider Shafique]

2: Breakage - Staggered Dub (Sam Binga Remix)

Binga and Breakage go head to head and remix each other for this very welcome 10” drop on Critical.

It’s great to see Breakage back pon the scene, it’s been quiet since Digital Soundboy shut up shop, save for a free download and a wicked guest appearance on the Metalheadz Rinse show last month, hopefully signaling a new wave of material…

Kicking off with a dangerous reworking of Binga’s album highlight ‘Mind & Spirit’ with vocals from the one and only Rider Shafique, Breakage laces the track with expertly chopped breaks and cavernous subs, still stripped back and leaving room for the vocals to breathe, reframing the original inna proper junglist stylee.

On the flip, Binga looks back to 2004 and without a doubt one of the jewels in the Breakage discography, and tackles the almighty ‘Staggered Dub’. If you’re familiar with the original you’ll know how big an undertaking that was – One that Binga handles with ease, flipping the rugged amens of the original into a digi-dancehall influenced  halfstepper that’ll rattle fillings loose and fill floors in equal measures.

Top-a-top plate this one, get involved.
