For the first 2 x 12" on Hotline Recordings, the elusive Bristol-based label welcome two of Young Echo's hottest talents -

Hotline008 features no less than 6 cuts from Ishan Sound & Rider Shafique.

Spread across two discs, the label reveal Ishan Sound's most in-demand dubplate artillery, with a high-grade selection of his less-dubwise, more club-orientated material.
Amongst the tracklist, we find the dancefloor-damager 'Militant Mindset' along with the sparse, heavy-hitting dub version by Portland's very own E3, mixed at the Boomarm Nation HQ along with label boss Gulls.

Just by itself, Militant Mindset should be enough to warrant a full release but for the labels first two-disc release, they rounded up a further three cuts of Ishan & Rider's most deadly gear – The dread, grime-tinged, dancehall-flavoured E.O.D. And it's frantic 140bpm companion 'Rivet' lay down the rules on separate sides of each disc, followed by the hotly-tipped 'Highest' and it's Instrumental version, with it's signature Ishan Sound palette and swaggering bassline making noise on in clubs, Rinse FM airwaves and getting full support from the likes of Commodo, Kahn, Gantz, The Bug, Sam Binga and many more.

In terms of quality, Hotline have pulled out all the stops once again, with each of the tracks undergoing the clinical stem-mastering process by Lewis at Stardelta, prior to the master lacquers being cut, for full physical impact upon deployment.

The Record comes in a vibrant yellow printed housing, with no less than 5 unique stickers plastering the sleeve and centre labels, sporting that boastful D.I.Y. Approach the label has been championing since day one.

Warning - these won't hang around for too long... If you want an O.G. copy - 'Don't be late'...

2 x 12", mastered and cut from stems, by Lewis at Stardelta.
Printed sleeve, designed by Studio Tape-Echo.
3 Die-cut stickers on front sleeve, two gold stickers on centre labels.
