A1. Response & Pliskin remix 'The Flood' by Drum Cypha & Champa B to devastating effect - rolling out with bonecrushing amens, sombre pads and earth-shaking bass resulting in a haunting ambience that will stay with you long after the track has finished.
B1. Champa B goes in on the breaks with the none-can-test riddim of 'Eradicated'. Pinpoint drums and punchy FX roll along until it breaks down into an amen onslaught, sitting atop sludgey hunchback bass squelches and naaasty mid-range growls.
B2. Acid Lab's debut on Holotype is the sublime and aptly titled 'Steamroller'. Opening up with light, Vangelis-esque keys and atmospherics it soon gets down to the nitty with crunchy breaks, powerhouse drum patterns, mentasm echoes and teeth-clattering bass stabs. Cavernous pressure to get the whole dancefloor screwfacing.

Absolute carnage on this release, kicking off with a mighty bang as Triple Sickz face off against Raw Science resulting in the aptly titled 'Bruiserville'. A serene intro with rolling breaks builds up using lush, soaring pads before breaking down to the drop: chunky stabs pave the way for a wall of drums and bass to swing through like an out of control wrecking ball to completely annihilate any dancefloor......No prisoners.
Brand new signing DC-N5S from Virginia, USA comes correct with the 2004 horseman vibes of the big nasty stepper 'Emitter', causing seizures with its incessant mentasm stab and stop-start drum patterns to keep you on your toes.
Closing things off on the flip, Grief brings the pain with the pure cyberpunk robo-funk of 'Bishop'. Drawing on the classic tech-step sound of the late 90s, this one could be a soundtrack to a dark future anime short; rich in atmosphere, weighty in beats and oozing class through every bar, this is an epic piece of music rounding off a punchy, nasty slice of wax.

No time to fuck about. From the T-O-P we have bonafide jungle legend and producer extraordinaire, dubzilla himself Digital teaming up with the master of the low-slung dub-flex Morphy, together with deadly rhythm technician 9 Tails, to bring you the chunky bar-brawl beats and earth-splitting bass quake of 'Rhino Gun' on the A side.
Next up we have the B-boy break extravaganza of 'Culture' by Champa B & QRE8R, slicing up the dance with its switch-hitting drum patterns and warping mentasm riddim in an unrelenting fashion for the pill munchers.
Raw Science (Drum Cypha & Skru) close off this monstrous EP with 'Deicide', a reese-led beast that tumbles along with crunchy sledgehammer breaks and robotic stabs, building into a hectic crescendo of synths and relentless bongos.
To sum up this 12" in one word? Weapon.
