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.

Dubplate’s Don Persian has repressed this Hardcore Breaks Techno Riddim, seeing there were only 100 in existence before going for crazy prices, now including a mix from S.Bell capturing a shimmering soundscape vibe, adding perfection to his unsung abilities. This E.P. has some speaker destroyer’s on there, introducing the MixMaster Max into the pot alongside the Persian doing what can only be called world dub music. Sterling breaks shuffling at a downtempo 8 bit vibe with a really heavy bass! MixMaster Max’s history is interesting to say the least...
Born October 1966. Break Dancer in 1984, under the moniker Mad Max, started a crew named The Back Street Warriors, busking all over the UK at places such as Covent Garden/Leicester Square Performing on stage & in clubs. They once jammed with The Rock Steady Crew in Camden Palace in front of an audience.
Then in 1987 he became a DJ, playing all genre’s of music, he first played on RJR Radio, playing Electro, Hip Hop, Soul, R&B & Reggae. Moving forward he started playing Acid House & Four to the Floor Music styles, by the early 90’s he played on Weekend Rush & then went onto Defection, Touchdown, Don & Passion FM, playing Acid & Hardcore Jungle.
In the early day’s, MixMaster Max was one of the Innovator’s of Jungle music by mixing Hardcore, Reggae & Hip Hop together, helping other’s to produce, fuse & gain idea’s in the music industry. He was by Far the most Original, Innovative, DJ anybody had ever heard.
In 1991 he played alongside John Saunderson at the Camden Palace on a Friday night, he also played at the Famous Hacienda Club in Manchester.
He was the first DJ to create the Topsy Turvey, which is one turntable on top of the other, he came runner up in the DMC World Championships in the early 90’s.
He played at some of the Biggest Rave’s back in the day, Pirate club 93, Fantazia 92, Dungeon’s 91/92, Turnmills 92, to mention a few. He also played on Avenues FM & People’s Choice, which were legal Radio Station’s, not forgetting Kool FM & Centreforce.
He performed on stage with the We Papa Girl Rapper’s in 1990 at the Notting Hill Carnival. This Legendary Cult figure is a Master of the Nunchucker’s & TurnTable’s!
His innovative Mixes were ‘legendary’ he was a pioneer precursor to the Art form known as Jungle Music, not to mention his Scratching abilities, which was ‘extraordinary’!
For those that listened to pirate radio back in the day, he was the legendary cult figure that inspired us all, giving us the freshest musical styles that had never been heard before!
He can still be heard on OriginUK.Net Radio today...What an inspiration this Unsung Hero has been to us All!

Back in 2015 we released the Pantherkatze for the very first time on our limited Social Sounds From Planet Dub CD. First time we listened to that monstrous tune by T-Jah and Kuriooki, we instantly felt in love with it. Surely we knew, if we ever start a label, this tune gonna be one of our first releases. We infected the two dubheads from Chemnitz with this idea.
Now, for our second vinyl release we can present to you a brand new version from that already classic Pantherkatze tune, which enters the gate with some rumbling basslines, hypnotizing skanks and nuff dubwise business. Dangerous like the path of a black panther, this tune surely makes it to any soundsystem session this summer. If the heavy T-Jah & Kuriooki tune is not enough for you, you'll find a killer version on the flipside by another german dub don called Jah Schulz, who already mashed some baldheads with his great releases on Railroad Records.

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.
