Eastcolors – Mad Day (Ed:it Remix) [Addictive Behaviour]

20 02 2015


Nottingham-based producer Ed:it steps up on the latest release for Addictive Behaviour, providing a fresh lick of sonic paint for Eastcolors Mad Day alongside two fresh new tunes of his own. Super punchy and highly detailed drums are the order of the day here, with three techy stompers to choose from. The frenetic percussion of the Mad Day remix makes it our pick of the bunch – check out the clip below and look out for this on vinyl from Feb 23rd with digital to follow from March 9th.


Hyroglifics – Why Don’t You / The Forest [Vandal Records]

16 04 2014

Vandal Records have lined up quite a release schedule for 2014 with their latest selection of dark tech following hot on the heels of some big releases from Nickbee and Primal Therapy. This time it’s Hyroglifics at the controls who comes in with a pair of tasty collaborative tracks.

Ed:it collab Why Don’t You hits down with a heavy break and modulated bass, plus a nicely chosen vocal hook which brings to mind Break’s classic Slow Down. Over on the flip Philth gets in on the act, building atmosphere on the intro with eery synth work before a crisp drop and a big hulking bassline shuffle the tune along. Grimey! Check out the beats below and watch out for the release dropping from April 20th.

Ed:it – Sound Killer / I Would [SGN:Ltd]

26 01 2014

Ed:it ups the ante for SGN:Ltd with the monstrous Sound Killer. Dubby chords and a ragga vocal sample provide the icing on a warped, twisted cake of heavy kicks, reverb drenched snares and monstrous bass.

Over on the flip I Would shows the deeper side of Ed:it’s production, with a nice vocal cut up layered over a meaty package of bass and beats. This one doesn’t pull any punches either! Check out the A side below and watch out for the release dropping Feb 16th on vinyl and digital.

Ed:it – Defects / Ideology [Commercial Suicide]

29 08 2013

Klute’s Commercial Suicide imprint returns once again, this time with a techstep 12″ from promising up and comer Ed:it. Fresh from releases for Blu Mar Ten Music, Rooted Records and Alignment, the Nottingham based producer has come correct for Suicide with a pair of dark, rolling tunes with a dash of soul and plenty of character.

Defects leads the charge with an echoing vocal sample reverberating out over the chunky percussion and dark, warping sub bass. Over on the flip Ideology takes the beat to more stepping territory, setting the same warping bass style to calm pad work and a grimier vocal cut.

Both tunes do a great job of showcasing a duality with soft harmonic elements complementing the rough and tough techstep style to great effect. Check out the beats below and watch out for the release dropping September 2nd.

Ed:it – Cargo Dub (Total Science Remix) [Rooted Recordings]

8 06 2013

Rooted don’t seem to be in any hurry to get the beats out there but when they come to the table with a release it’s always top notch, and their third 12″ sticks to that theme. First up Total Science give their classic remix treatment to Ed:it’s Cargo Dub, adding emphasis to the melodic elements on the intro and bringing a dirty reese bassline to the table over some classic TS breaks.

Over on the flip, Mikal delivers a hard hitting break and some meaty bass stabs on Kick Back. Stopping short of the “full roll” of a traditional D&B break, instead we’re treated to a slightly more angular beat with tons of punch. Watch out for these dropping June 17th.
