Killjoy – Memories EP [TUM004]

Oi!  Hope everyone is good, yeah?

I want to bring the spotlight back to the Tumble Audio imprint today, as Monday saw the release of their 4th installment.  Killjoy (aka Core aka Ashburner) makes his return to the buttons with three original tracks, accompanied by remixes from Caski and Notion.  Killjoy put Tumble Audio on the map after writing the label’s debut release back in October of ’12 with his ‘XTC’ EP, namely (in my opinion) the track ‘Tiki’.  Killjoy brings an eclectic trio of music for 004, each tune embracing its own persona within the UK Funky format.  The 4×4 kick and pumping bassline in the title track offer up a instant party starter, while the groovy drum breaks and crafty vocal sampling of ‘Inaudible Badness’ bring things right back to the dancehall.  ‘Tangle Riddim’ is a breed of its own, sounding like some sort of brainchild of Coki’s ‘Goblin’ after a night of ketamine and Atari – a tool certain to set the energy off!  Ghost Records signee Caski puts a 140 spin on ‘Memories’, with a halfstep skeleton that leaves plenty of room for sub-bass flex and vocal intricacies.  Notion has outdone himself with his take on ‘Memories’, crafting an absolute slumper of a tune.  Infusing grime and funky to provide a track that will convulse your body through a state of boogie like no other!  It’s no surprise that such talent comes from Bristol.

Check the release below, and make sure to keep yourself locked into the Tumble Audio and Killjoy pages for future release/parties/etc.

Majora – Boss Key EP [TUMBLE AUDIO]

tum002

Big up fam’, Kinman back here with some fresh beats to put through your system.

Today I’ve got some funky future-bass music that I wanted to highlight.  Today’s EP comes from the young Bristolian Majora.  This cat has been turning heads lately with tunes like  his collaborative effort on 877 Records with My Nu Leng – ‘Hips N’ Thighs’ – that was released back in November of 2012 and also his remix of ‘No Reason’ that was featured on Loft Party Records.

This solo EP on Tumble Audio sees the signature take of bouncy bass grooves, chopped vocals, and brilliantly placed percussion of the high-end that Majora has been widely acclaimed for.  The two most stand-out tracks for me are ‘Satisfied’ for it’s club aesthetic whilst infusing slumping basslines and ‘Just Listen’ for it’s infectious reverb-soaked strings and percussive progression.

PR Words:

“The “Boss Key EP,” his debut solo release, takes up where “Hips n Thighs” left off. Weaving between and combining elements of UK Funky, House, Grime, ice cold Electro workouts and even Trap, Majora creates a wholly satisfying and unique inclusion into the UK Bass music cannon, injecting a fresh life and energy into a genre seemingly in stasis at the moment.

Wielding his infectious grooves and barnstorming bass line science as deadly dance floor weapons, Majora employs a subtlety and restraint that belies his young age. Utilising classic club sounds alongside more experimental and grimy memes, he creates a fully formed and well-rounded EP bursting with ideas and forward movement, just as you would expect from this talented producer.”

The EP dropped officially on Monday February 18th, 2013 and is available for download at all major online retailers.  I’ve provided a few links below for those who are feeling this sound.
