NEVER BEEN / CODEC (2018 REPRESS)
12" Vinyl D 31.05.18
2018 repress in plain white sleeve.
critical come extremely correct once more with what is bound to be an early summer smash as a certain dub phizix picks up where the almighty marka left off. teaming up with fellow manchester scene stalwart fox proves an inspired choice here which critical just couldnt ignore, so invited him back to drop these two more astonishingly fresh tracks for this, his second outing on the label. simply put, >never been< is baaaaaad man business. a lean, stripped back percussive intro leads us to a breakdown where fox greets us with the sickest of vocal hooks that you will be trying to decipher until the end. when the tribal half-time break drops its time to bounce as the undulating b-line rolls heavy throughout with dub phizix teasing with awesome drum edits and amen shakedowns. riddim! cinematic soundscapes and a solid beats combine on >codec<, a more bass-led slab of equally dance floor drum & bass that retains the dub phizix air of originality with an experimental break the kicks like a mule. another winner without doubt from a very exciting splinter cell coming out of the north of the uk right now.

CHAMPION EP
12" Vinyl NL 03.11.17
“i’ve said it before, but dancehall and its influence on uk music has been a massive inspiration for me, going way back to hearing chris goldfinger on radio 1 playing music that was like nothing else i’d heard before. i love that fundamental rhythmic pattern, and i love how within the same world you can have some tunes that are built around the sweetest melodies and harmonies, and others that are built around super-tuff minimal drums and crazy squeeks and bleeps.
when it came time to build another ep for critical, i decided to link up with my good friend and long-time collaborator rider shafique, who has a much deeper knowledge of this music than me, and together create something that references both old and new dancehall, while still being playable in the kinds of sets i ve become known for. there’s no halftime and no chopped-up jungle breaks here - we wanted to make something really focussed and even disciplined - and hopefully we’ve succeeded.
big shouts to the vocal collaborators - super hyped to work with stush on a tune, irah came through with the righteous fire, and tiffanie malvo absolutely bodied her beat - but ultimate biggups have to go to rider. this wasn’t a project where i made the beats and rider voiced them - for pretty much every tune, we worked and reworked the riddims together. we’re both stoked on the results, and it seems like people in the dance feel the same way.” - sam binga

ALL TALK EP (BLACK & BLUE VINYL)

in advance of his attendance as a participant at the 2016 red bull music academy in montreal, rising uk producer hyroglifics has prepared the “all talk ep” for release in september via london’s drum & bass purveyors critical music. that title might under-promise, but on tracks like “persuade”, debuted here, hyroglifics certainly delivers.
featuring verses from long-running british rap crew foreign beggars, “persuade” eschews hyroglifics junglist tendencies in favor of more linear hip-hop. following a mellow intro, it explodes with energy off the back of vocals that are paranoid, partially uplifting, and certainly boastful (“this is what you want / let me show you what you need”). there are shadowy slips of sound tucked throughout, with woodblock rhythms knocking at the door of otherwise fragile, glassy details that compete with the verses for attention. it’s not jungle, and it s not drum & bass, and maybe it’s not really hip-hop, either - it’s just hyroglifics.

SIGNALZ / CYPHER
12" Vinyl UK 15.03.13
emerging last year as austria’s latest drum & bass talent to take the world by storm, martin mefjus as been on a serious roll with his music featuring heavily in the sets of the scenes biggest players. never ones to rest on their laurels critical were listening and snapped him up all for themselves as the latest to join the critical roster alongside enei, foreign concept, xtrah and emperor. now as he readies his debut solo release on the label, mefjus looks set to take things up a gear. ‘signalz’ has been damaging dance floors at critical events across the land these past few months and now it’s time to get up close and personal with this utterly disgusting beast of a tune and see what the fuss is about. the build up is all epic pads and smattering percussion but it’s the main event with its colossal bass drone and frenetic drums that’s gonna grab you and never let go until the next tune drops in. watch for the sick edits and switches to keep you on your toes. truly big, stinking and nasty! next up label boss kasra joins forces with the young austrian on another absolute belting slice of technoid drum & bass that’s been getting critical’s fabric sessions in all sorts of bother of late. ‘cypher’ is pure future with the synth stabs to match and bassline to smash, showing some strong sturdy roots for possibly a few more collaborations from these two. wait and see ...

NEVER BEEN / CODEC
12" Vinyl UK 29.05.12
critical come extremely correct once more with what is bound to be an early summer smash as a certain dub phizix picks up where the almighty marka left off. teaming up with fellow manchester scene stalwart fox proves an inspired choice here which critical just couldnt ignore, so invited him back to drop these two more astonishingly fresh tracks for this, his second outing on the label. simply put, >never been< is baaaaaad man business. a lean, stripped back percussive intro leads us to a breakdown where fox greets us with the sickest of vocal hooks that you will be trying to decipher until the end. when the tribal half-time break drops its time to bounce as the undulating b-line rolls heavy throughout with dub phizix teasing with awesome drum edits and amen shakedowns. riddim! cinematic soundscapes and a solid beats combine on >codec<, a more bass-led slab of equally dance floor drum & bass that retains the dub phizix air of originality with an experimental break the kicks like a mule. another winner without doubt from a very exciting splinter cell coming out of the north of the uk right now.

after what many would consider one of the most meteoric rises to d&b infamousy in recent times, mefjus gets set to deliver his debut album emulation through critical music. an extension of his explosive trademark production style, the music of mefjus stands tall as an aggressive powerhouse of some the most deadly dance floor drum & bass seen in 2014. drawing on a handful of carefully selected collaborators from the jaw-dropping phace & misanthrop to the hip-hop infusions of dope d.o.d, emulation looks set to shatter dance floors for years to come, marking a clear-cut arrival of one of the most gifted producers in the d&b game, mefjus.
