scientific wax is very proud to present three slices of breakbeat chaos from label debutont, champa b. first up, torment fuses influences of renegade hardware and metalheadz with champas trademark sound to produce a post apocalyptic tear out that manages to effortlessly build from rolling breaks towards a deadly drop and back again. soldiers of the cause isnt for the faint hearted. dub samples, warping sub bass and sci wax’s trademark amen edits make for an intense dance-floor experience that leaves you too out of breath to shout reload! 5:40 continues the reign of terror with brutal, switching breaks and eerie film sounds. resistance is futile.

this 12 inch should come with a warning label. lion step proves that a tune doesnt have to be amen to tear down the place. heavily influenced by the more vigorous side of the dub spectrum, drum rolls, analogue synths, and even the lions roar combine to devastating effect. the flip side, no more games, initially suggests a more relaxed affair with its lush intro and plangent atmosphere. however, the dark clouds soon roll in and the track morphs in to an all out assault on the senses, underpinned by switching amens, cutting edge science and a string line straight from dark side. natalie’s rhodes begins serene and beautiful and unlike its b side companion remains that way. a truly diverse and unique effort from sci wax stalwart dub one.
