Review of Circuits by T>I
Following from the success of Micky Finn and Vital Elementz anthem ‘So Good’ the Serial Killaz label isn’t letting up and now hits us with a 2 part EP project from respected producer T>I, one of a handful of producers responsible for bringing raw 90’s vibes back to DnB. T>I has a huge amount of hits on the underground scene and this latest release on the Serial Killaz label will be no exception!
1. Music Takes Me
Great intro to the EP, starts off nice and spooky, with a haunting atmosphere being built up, after the vocal ‘Music Takes Me Higher’ we are launched into a laid back shuffler of a roller style tune, full to brim of intricate production techniques that work to good effect.
This one is a lively bass driven roller that is certainly aptly named, watch out cos this one is gona Jab you straight in the mid-section, again full of T>I’s intricate production skills.
3. Watcha Man
My favourite track of the release! Total Dancefloor chaos when this one drops! If you like it big bad bold and stompy then this is the track for you, Stripped back drums with the occasional Zinc 138 trek style cheeky drum roll accompanied by the excellent bit of vocal and downright duttyness of the pounding bassline! Oh Gosh!
4. Them Bells
As the title suggests we got some bells on the scene, all I can say about this track is… Masterful… T>I went in on this, its like a Horror Movie transformed into a DnB track, defo one to unleash in the dance if you want to change the pace and terrorise those next to the speakers cos the bassline here is Dangerous accompanied by the acid stabs.
Does exactly what it says on the tin! An intricate minimal intro leads us to a rising vocal sample then we flow into a stripped back bass driven roller, with T.I’s excellent production techniques on display this one really is Relentless in a very nice way!
All in all one hell of a sick release from T>I and the Serial Killaz camp.
This is Part 1 of a 2 part release with a Free Download on Soundcloud coming real soon
