why, we are sure there is absolutely no need to introduce deekline and ed solo to you rowdy lot, so we will save ourselves and you the bother… oh except to let you in on a few little secrets about their personal lives…
this latest release on jungle cakes comes courtesy of canada’s, house of david gang. proper chilled out, but incredibly funky reggae vibes on this jam, as the name suggests. serious bass shakes your sub out of its box, and your windows out of their frame. all the classic elements melt into one big pile of funk. rhythm guitar, ragga stabs and vocals provide the laid back groove and are spurred along by sensational guitar licks. ed solo and stickybuds turn up the heat, and the tempo with their remix. keeping somewhat true to the original with many of the original stems in play, they add some super tight drums, some heavy bassline wizardry and smash out an absolute gem that is impossible not to groove to. when we say groove, we mean dance uncontrollably with arms flailing and a big grin from ear to ear!a house of david gang –

if you ever wondered where all the really mammoth dnb tunes went, the ones designed to have you bouncing off the walls (rather than reaching for that mug of filter coffee and stroking your hipster beard) deekline & ed solo have the answer in the form of a double header of future-retro classics cut from their preposterously rocking forthcoming 21-track double album, bounce n shake. first up, vocalist top cat drops in on the frenetic jungle-flavoured bad boys, the duo freshening up the famous reggae classic with tearing beats, dubby soundscapes and the beefiest of bassline dirt: drop this and watch them hit the ceiling! on the flip, you can be my night is a piano-fuelled dnb roller with a heavy jump up influence, sounding like the bastard offspring of aphrodite and omni trio. deep but driving, heady yet destructive, you would find yourself declaring: >they dont make em like that any more< if it wasnt for the fact that someone just did.
remixed from >always<, the donna dee & keatz vocal track. deekline & ed solo add the wobble bass and searing synths into the mix for a rapturous end-‐,,,of-‐,,, night floor filler. badmen eddie k & minus remix dustin things into full-on d&b euphoria, before hitting us with the bass for maximum impact in the club.
