Released 3rd May
Yo Falty why don’t you do the old school shuffle anymore? What happened, maaaaan? OK, held this one back from 2011. All the garage and 2-step workouts I made were inspired by hours and hours of listening to Horsepower Productions, Zed Bias, El-B, Darqwan… I studied them. This tune in particular inspired by Benny Ill himself. Ill Bent was never released, I always held back some exclusives for my sets. No one had it. Benny Ill remixed the track in fine style, both Straight up and with a Fat Larry spin. We were talking, Benny and I, and he mentioned he used to live in Brooklyn. So he submitted Is It Safe, a tune he made while living not far from where I live now in NYC, to conclude the EP. Heavy! (note, the first letter in Benny’s last name is a capitol “i”) Track A1 produced by FaltyDL Track AA1 produced by Benny Ill Track A2 and AA2 produced by FaltyDL, remixed by Benny Ill.

Schlachthofbronx celebrate 10 years of their existence with a new record on their Rave And Romance imprint. On this double single, the Munich based duo dives into all that interesting vibes, rhythms and sounds they have come to be known for over the last decade, exploring the hybrid fields between all kinds of Dub, Club and Soundsystem music. And: they even allow themselves to get a bit more emotional to fit the special occasion.
The A side TEN starts with a bittersweet synth intro that can only be described as epic before immersing in a dubby bassline world full of layered melodies reminiscing about club-romantic stories of raves & sunrises from the past – while always keeping you dancing to waves of bass tailored to big soundsystems, you know the drill.
The B side ORION takes you far away into an out-of-space Dub universe equal parts sultry & fragile and full of the highest highs and the lowest lows. It's deep.
It will be available digitally and on a limited edition run of 10" vinyl (full artwork disco sleeve) via Rave And Romance Records. Distribution via Unearthed Sounds (vinyl) and The Orchard (digital).
With this, Schlachthofbronx will follow up their 4 previous original albums (2009s Schlachthofbronx, 2012s Dirty Dancing, 2014s Rave And Romance and 2017s Haul & Pull Up), completed by Eps and singles for Labels like Zam Zam, Mixpak, Monkeytown, Mad Decent, Disko B and Man Recordings as well as production work for artists like M.I.A., Snoop Dogg or Bonde Do Role.

Hubwar is one of those artists who has been noticed by crossing the borders that previously separated IDM and bass-music. "Eikonoklastes", first album and cornerstone of his own imprint Noizion Recordz, already opens the possibilities : a subtle blend of electronica, dubstep, jungle and footwork.
If this first opus was rather cosmic, this new album brings us back to our planet, more precisely into the “Deep Earth”. In this journey with a thousand cultures, we wiggle on Brazilian rhythms with “Sambacraft”, enter a state of trance in the “Kudumbigala's” jungle, move our heads on “Northern Mali’s” trip-hop beat, regain the dancefoor on a furious dubstep entitled “Acid Ababa", get lost in the tribal drums of “Far From" and hover over the atmospheric dub of "Slow ".
In short, "Deep Earth" can be heard both on the living room turntable or on a big sound system in a dance hall.
