2 Bit Thugs – Drama (b/w Major Havocs Rave In Da Hood remix and DJ Enfusions Deep J-tek Remix)
iDJ 9/10 *RECOMMENDED* “this is a tune you must have, and play at least once in a set!"
2 Bit Thugs mash-up the genre boundaries even more with their debut Fly Beat Music release – Drama.
Drama fuses tough crunk beats with a maddening bassline running at breakneck drum and bass speed to create and energetic yet cool half-step monster. Taking full advantage of the boundary less club scene the Thugs have created a tune that characterise everything that’s great about Hip-Hop/Drum and Bass/Dubstep/Breaks/Fidget…. I could go on. If you play just one particular style, or a multitude, this track works wonders either way, and if you prefer a more standard tempo, we’ve slotted in 2 heavy remixes for you too.
Major Havoc comes hot on the heels of his stupidly fresh debut release on Fly Beat Music. Scoring a commendable 4/5 in DJ Mag, he splatters the same hip rave brush at his take on Drama bringing the tempo down (or up) for a more contemporary mid-tempo rave-up.
DJ Enfusion sneaks us a look into Fly Beat Music’s new dub and tech sub-label, Flytronik7. Dropping the Jungle tempo to 150bpm and moving into J-tek territory, DJ Enfusion creates a remix brimming of old and new school influences alike. Being from Coventry DJ Enfusion is no stranger to the laws of the jungle and his deep bass, spacious sound and tight drum editing make for a fully law abiding stepper to finish off an all-round immense package.
Ben & Lex, Pete Jordan, Mr No Hands, Adam Fogerty, Outrage, Pilgrim and Hubie all think this release is the boom-diggy! So don’t mug your sets off, treat the dancefloor to some half-step bass insanity!
