The prolific Dubstep pioneer Youngsta returns to self-run imprint Sentry Records, this time delivering the wax treatment with a murderous collaboration featuring the dons Killa P and Long Range. Title track ’Progress’ starts off innocently, before slowly dragging you into a field of melody that quickly turns into a warzone: Infectious stabs resemble heavy arms, which do serious damage thanks to the genius square- and sawtooth bass lines as its core. This engineering is backed up by dons Killa P and Long Range, who both pack that extra punch, to conclude their joint effort with Youngsta remains part of one deadly formula. The power of the track ultimately lies within the short bursts of thunderous percussion, ruff vocals from the very underground - and the ton of pressure avid listeners of the tidy Dubstep culture love unmistakably. Tested thoroughly on systems across the globe, both the vocal version as the instrumental have the power to stir a serious crowd. With this thirteenth release of the label, catalogued as 'SEN013', to be set in stone, it is as bulletproof as all preceding releases of this very imprint.

Rider Shafique, Ishan Sound, and Kahn need no introductions. As individual artists and fellow members of Bristol’s Young Echo collective, they are responsible for some of the most crucial music to come out of Bristol in the last decade. We couldn’t be prouder to deliver this powerful message music in these extremely dread times.
In a catalog overflowing with lyrical majesty, “When Shall We rise” is one of Rider Shafique’s most direct and moving missives yet - a critical dissection of the racist foundations of dominant culture - whether UK, EU, or US - and the struggle of the racially oppressed within it. The plea to abandon assimilation into Babylon system, in lesser hands could easily be cliched or flat-footed, but with Rider’s pen and voice it is a revelatory spiritual call-to-arms - there are no saviors coming - we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
The riddim is classic Kahn & Ishan- uncompromising rockstone mid-tempo steppers that is at once orthodox and utterly, inimitably their own- plucked strings, haunted pipes, pounding kick and heaving bassline in propulsive amalgamation. Straight off the desk, “When Shall We Dub” strips the vocal out entirely, focusing on breaking down the incredibly militant riddim, crafting a dark, roiling ocean of reverb, swells of delay breaking the surface in blackest night.
A closely guarded dub for several years, “When Shall We Rise” is now free to circulate and become the anthem that it demands.
Peace, health, & strength to all.
