Pinch steps up with two dangerous steppers for his Cold imprint -

Furthering the clear-vision of modern dancefloor music via the Cold enterprise, this is the turn of label boss Pinch to provide us with a pair of dark, paranoid rollers, built for the moodier dancefloor.

‘Down’ harks back to ‘92 with its hardcore/ proto-jungle sonic.
Menacing pads impose themselves over a 126bpm, filtered breakbeat, peppered with ‘down’ vocal cuts - before a fully weighted, sweeping baseline smashes in - scanning the dancefloor and terrorising as it swoops.

Both sides come in like a jab to the chest, with enough heavy hitting sub frequencies to remind of the old dubstep days and assertive, leaner drum programming making them up-to-date for this decade. DJ support from Boddika & Joy Orbison among others.

‘Search Party’ takes in a garage/ 2-Step-like swing with 126bpm shuffling beats, dread sub bass and general ‘horror in the jungle’ soundscapes. A reverb’d mid- bass builds and rises like a panic attack before pulling back and rolling out. Darkside-stepper business.

Big tunes.

Served in die-cut sleeve, designed by Studio Tape-Echo.
