John Rolodex – ‘Connector'
Catchy steppin' business with classic a reese bassline and punchy minimal breaks. ‘Connector’ is rounded out with a repetitive vocal snip and peppered with twisted bass bits. Set to damage all dancefloors it touches and stand out in any set.
John Rolodex – ‘Box of Snakes’
Heavyweight warehouse hardstep with deep brooding atmospherics on this classic no-u-turn influenced monster. Dropping with rolling 808 subs, ‘Box of Snakes’ launches a sneak-attack with a grimy reese appearing suddenly. The second drop takes you further with classic break fills and a hoover fill to round out the vibe.
John Rolodex – ‘Keep on Truckin’’
Conga-infused breakbeats roll through the night on this reesey tearout affair from Canada’s master of darkness. This lashing roll-out is punctuated with a kick you feel in your chest and one of the dirtiest reese basslines around. A nasty piece of business to be sure. One for the soldiers.
Amenizm – ‘Behind The Mirror’
Classic breakbeats chopped together masterfully, reminiscent of Source Direct and Photek’s darker material. Each section of the tune tells its own story with a different set of breaks and fills. True to the moniker, the last section is a challenging amen affair. This deep breakbeat showcase begs the question ‘what’s behind the mirror?’
Amenizm feat. John Rolodex – ‘Amenizm pt. 2’
This classic breakbeat workout will be available as a bonus for people who purchase all four tracks of the digital release. ‘Amenizm Pt. 1’ is now legendary among the choppage crew. This version continues where pt. 1 one left off. Supported by many of the top figures in dnb from Bailey to Pendulum.
