ShockOne is quite simply one of the hottest properties in drum and bass. 2009 proved to be a breakthrough year for ShockOne, first with the release of >The ShockOne EP< on Viper Recordings, featuring the huge anthem >Polygon< which received the stamp of approval from Annie Mac on Radio 1 (calling it >the biggest drum and bass track out<) alongside high rotation playlisting on Australias Triple J show.
ShockOne feat. Reija Lee ‘Polygon (Dirtyphonics Remix)’
When the debut Radio1 play for a track is on Pendulum’s Essential Mix and when its first outing at Fabric is from the executioner Andy C (getting an instant rewind!) you know its already destined for anthem status. Winners of the ‘Best Newcomer Producer’ at the 2009 Drum and Bass Arena awards, the five strong production and live act Dirtyphonics have in the past year created some of the most boundary pushing, genre hopping records in dance music. With a string of tracks already out on Shimon’s AudioPorn label, this remix of ‘Polygon’ for Viper is set to be their biggest track to date. Moulding ShockOne’s original into an electro stomper, which then morphs into one of the biggest DnB drops of the year so far, this track has sent clubs into a frenzy in the past few weeks and will delight those who like their bpm’s and minds twisted to the max.
ShockOne feat. MC Spyda ‘Chronic 2010’
A great MC once said ‘the original was a killer, but this one is iller, certified, bona fide, dance floor filler’ and never has this been more apt when considering ShockOne’s 2010 version of ‘Chronic’. Ragga tinged dancehall drums alongside huge cavernous low-end has made this track an instant favourite of the more grimy dancefloors and of those who like their Drum and Bass with a different step to the norm. The track features the unmistakable vocals of MC Spyda who as well as being one of the most in demand MC’s in the scene, has also been responsible for vocaling some of the biggest tracks in Drum and Bass, including teaming up with Pendulum and DJ Fresh for ‘Tarantula’ and Matrix & Futurebound for ‘Knite Riderz’.
