FREQUENCY EP (2X12 + MP3)
2x12" Vinyl UK 05.06.13
matt-u has achieved much in the dubstep sphere, with a concise catalogue of killer releases on some essential labels, from kryptic minds imprint osiris music to n-types infamous wheel & deal. to cement a solid 5 years at 140bpm, matt is now ready to drop his definitive release via black box.
every track of the frequency ep serves to showcase a different side of matt-us production, from the laser-guided ordnance of the title track, to the murky depths of killawatt collab the strangers, via the furious breakstep of backwards.
this 2x12 vinyl will be the first release in the black box xxx series to feature full artwork, as it develops from a stealth-themed dj tool imprint into a fully-fledged label in its own right.
comes with digital download code.

KAHN EP (2X12 + MP3)
2x12" Vinyl UK 24.04.13
in the space of two short years, kahn has made a deep impression on the electronic music landscape. starting with a debut on peverelists institution punch drunk, a rite of passage for any new bristol-based artist, kahn proceeded to release on a number of well-respected imprints including idle hands, deep medi and his own bandulu recordings. his music draws effortlessly on wide-reaching influences, touching on soulful uk garage, bristling grime and shimmering, technicolor hiphop. alongside his solo productions and busy dj schedule, kahn is also a member of the hotly-tipped young echo crew - a loose collection of musical collaborators, who broadcast marathon ustream sessions from their underground bunker, and whose debut compilation is due for release in march 2013.
now ready to deliver his most ambitious record to date, kahn has drawn on his rich and varied influences to build an ep which expands beyond grime and dubstep and into more classic bristol territory, inhabiting a musical space which shares direct lineage as much with nellee hooper and the wild bunch as it does more recent tropes. featuring a turn from grime legend flowdan as well as rider shafique and young echo emcee j a b u, this will also be the first record to showcase kahns own vocals.
comes with code for free mp3 download of all tracks.

GHOST SHIP / LOST
12" Vinyl UK 27.03.12
following on from his rugged track >difference<, co-produced with dj madd, tmsv teams up with fellow utrecht residents june miller for the second part of his collab ep on black box, exploring far darker territory than on his past releases for box clever. >ghost ship< is a masterclass in restraint, with mutating laser-bass hemmed in by trembling strings and subliminal pads as the rigid riddim track moves ever forwards.
>lost cause< creeps further still into the shadows, with dub techniques applied to modern soundsets, layering icy textures over crisp halfstep beats and rock solid subbass.
each record in the xxx series comes with black labels in a black paper sleeve - cut as a 10 inch on 12 inch vinyl, all artist & track info is etched into the record itself at the time of mastering.

CLONE / PROJECTOR
12" Vinyl UK 10.01.12
this is the one they ve all been waiting for! black box hits release number 20 in fine style, with the first solo 12 of proper headhunter material in some time. as his 808-riddled addison groove project gathers pace, its easy to forget that tony williams has also produced some of the most visceral 140bpm halfstep, so now he returns to stamp his authority on the scene where he first made his name.
supporters of black box and its subsidiary box clever include: mala (dmz), n-type (rinse fm), mary anne hobbs (xfm), j:kenzo (1xtra), pinch (tectonic), v.i.v.e.k (deep medi), appleblim (apple pips), jack sparrow (tectonic) and countless others.

POWER SURGE (DESTO REMIX)
12" Vinyl UK 12.10.11
there must be something in the water out in finland, as the country that s produced such prodigious and forward-thinking talent as teeth & tes la rok is also home to the latest member to join the black box family, las. >power surge< channels both the earthier, more vital tones of mala and the techier aesthetics of icicles productions, or youngstas dj sets for rinse fm. built round a lean beat of razor-sharp hats & snares, las constructs a heavy roller from live-wire basslines and ice-cold atmospherics. on the flip, fellow finlander and futuristic b-boy desto turns the track completely inside out, inverting the beats & bass to create a vacuum-formed y3k electro warper.
heavy support from rinse fm djs including n-type & youngsta, and repeat plays on xfm from mary anne hobbs.

ARCANE / CANT SLEEP (SCUBA REMIX)
12" Vinyl UK 23.08.11
taken from the kryptic minds sophomore dubstep lp, the youngsta collaboration >arcane< has been a favourite of many, and a popular candidate for a vinyl release. based around a rolling 808 groove and laced with the detroit vibes and techy flourishes that are the trademark kryptic sound, >arcane< takes the listener a late night ride through darkened subways and deserted moonlit streets.
on the flip, scuba reworks >cant sleep<, converting the powerful groove into a pacy 4/4 format around which he arranges a relentless midrange growl and delayed vocal refrains.

NO RESPECT
12" Vinyl UK 05.04.11
one-sided disc. having relocated back to budapest after his time in the uk, madd has taken the opportunity to team up with fellow countryman and veteran d&b producer chris su, with devastating results. >no respect< has been a permanent feature of youngstas weekly show on rinse fm and has all the hallmarks of a classic yunx anthem - dark, tribal halfstep beats, menacing atmospherics and speaker-test bass manipulation - this is a reliable dancefloor weapon that wont leave the bag for months!

to accompany the original track, berlin-based sound designer and ninja tunes hottest signing emika has provided not a remix, but a re-interpretation and response. >make you sleep< inverts the mood and aesthetic of the original, creating instead a low-slung anti-love song, full of quiet menace and veiled eroticism all delicately poised over emikas sultry, late-night beats.

DARK FREQUENCY / CONSCIOUS
12" Vinyl UK 16.02.11
original dubstep soldiers from croydon n-type and cyrus come together on black box to drop a double-helping of bassweight. >dark frequency< is a chiller of a tune, spine-tingling strings and ethereal vocals and vibrating mid-range synths drifting mist-like over a riddim track of crusty drums and stomach-churning sub bass movement. >conscious< goes yet deeper, the scaly serpentine bassline weaving its way around minimal bongo-laced beats and cold, wintry pads.
supported by n-type, cyrus, hatcha, walsh, youngsta ...

12" Vinyl UK 17.09.10
dj madds stock continues to rise with his latest excursion on black box. >on top< has become a dubplate anthem with consistent rewinds across rinse fms a-list shows. catchy vocal hooks, emotive horns and solid song structure propel this high above the standard dubstep bangers. >need this< continues the a-grade production quality with an all round more glitch affair. uplifting synth-lines punctuate a tidal bass surge and snappy vocal snatches keep fingers skyward. the dj madd global take over continues.

tough yet polished dancefloor weaponry from two accomplished producers on the increasingly bankable black box imprint. rave docu-samples introduce >unity<, the speech snippets giving way to grinding monolithic subs and hard-smacking drums as traces of psychedelic synths dance before your ears. syphon continues in the same vein, rock-solid beat patterns inter-locking with a reversing warp bassline, hypnotic filtered riffs and deep lfo oscillation. quality gear.
