* big, bad and heavy! two of pinchs biggest dance floor bangers, remixed by one of uk dubsteps hardest hitters, kromestar. guaranteed rewinds. * the boxer first appeared on tectonic back in 2010, fusing grime and dubstep with tribal drums and tearing squarewave bass. kromestar stays true to the original but switches his stance to swing hard with a left hook, southpaw style. after a moody build up, the intro breaks away into a brief moment of calm, before bass comes out fighting, throwing knock out punches hard and fast. tried and tested dancefloor damage of the highest order. * flip then for an equally dangerous remix of pinchs deep medi release swish, from back in 2011. simple, effective and deadly, kromestar gives this classic an update, setting it up for another few years of wheel-ups
for all of you that remember, kromestar was the first ever artist to release on deep medi with his game changing >kalawanji<. after a five year hiatus from the label kromestar returns with help from anti social crew member jay 5ive.
noiz is a step back from kromestars uptempo wicked wobblers, leaning more towards an anthemic banger. with slowly rising and oscillating mid-range siren like distortion juxtaposed by skittering 808 hi-hats and half-step kick snare percussion, this one will blow up a dance. you can even hear kromestar go mad for it and call it kromestep.
dark tantrums goes absolutely mental with the growler. mad oscillations and wonky wobbles litter a tense warzone atmosphere. 4×4 breakdown percussion gives the tune a dark bounce. this one is a neckbreaker.
the pairing of jay 5ive & kromestar have birthed a number of exquisite tracks, and as they grow and perfect their studio presence together this has become apparent in their new work, their third release bnl003 sets the scene for an exciting time for bass music and opens the doors for more enjoyable experimentation. deepest fears: an orchestral choir sings out while weird and wonderful synths flutter and float around the mix. an equally unnatural and charismatic bass line moves in and out of an excitable hat arrangement. as the ghostly haunts of the choir return theyre joined by new melodic content and the introduction of additional percussion opens a whole new dimension and exciting chapter to what seems like a book which may have multiple outcomes. backwoods: enter the 404, kick and claps, as backwoods tips its hat at the early 90s west coast hip hop era, an assortment of pads and melodies create an eerie atmosphere as bouncy bass establishment the theme, unorthodox strings and sweeps unite together to compliment subtle synth harmonies.
dubstep for deep heads are proud to present a stunning new record from one of dubsteps biggest names, kromestar! 2 tracks that are just mind blowing! >boookey< on the a side has kromestars beats flying all over the place with basslines and futuristic samples neatly slotted in between. then >alone< on the flip takes it low. dark and gritty and seriously weighty!
following from the cosmic bridge debut release a collaboration with label head om unit titled solar cycle / merkabah uk bass music heavyweight kromestar returns for the labels second release with a solo four-track ep titled parallel sounds. genre-wise we will leave it up to you just dont go crazy now!
the wait is finally over people, the 2nd and last sampler from the highly successful album >colourful vibrations< from kromestar is finally here on vinyl! the sounds kromestar has created for the album is not dissimilar to the type of atmosphere he executed so well for >my sound<. loads of pads and swirls, rich basslines, flutes and well thought out samples to match. it does sound a lot more polished though and the production has come a long way since the debut. he is an absolute master of his mix downs, each sound on the frequency spectrum has space to breath and enter your ear with ease. every track well rounded, offering crisp, clean production through out. >colourful vibrations< has a variety of moods within, but the main focus is kromestars genius ability to create ambient, soulful dubstep. there are a few more banging tunes on the album as you would expect from kromestar, but no pointless wobble what so ever! overall a stunning album that will go down in kromestar history!

cosmic bridge is the new label of om unit, the london based dj & producer. striding into 2011, cosmic bridge declares its debut with a killer release in the form of an om unit & kromestar collaboration. om unit says of the label: >i took this collaboration as a green light to start my own imprint for side projects to my own stuff. the name speaks for itself, just have a listen, we hope you enjoy!<

the second release on bass n love is another enormous release from jay 5ive & kromestar. a side >wishful thinking< is one of their most sought after tracks since it first aired on the anti-social show on rinse. heavenly low slung funk-step. dont sleep on this limited pressing, as this will sell out fast!
the first release on getdarker recordings was always going to demand something special! >mental universe< sees kromestar draw for the maximum weight line, with a beautifully produced melody that you will keep coming back to. backed with an absolute club banger ft dark tantrums >trianglez< with a fierce stabbing snare and errupting drop, general destruction is the guaranteed outcome.
what a way to launch a record label, bass & love kick starts their already impressive release schedule with the highly sort after >bass 96< backed with the equally impressive >hands in the air< produced by label owners kromestar & jay 5ive. bass & love is a fresh, new, exciting label setup by two of the scenes leading artists, kromestar & jay 5ive. kromestar & jay 5ive are looking to push the sound we love to a higher level, a musical, atmospheric, and ultimately different flavour of music while also casting aside the restraints of bpm and experimenting with different speeds there will be a vast array of music for everyone, a concept which has already seen this release supported by the likes of mala, n-type, joenice, heny g, von d, joker, silkie and many more talented established artists.
