The sonic equivalent of the heat from a rocket launcher, RAE’s debut EP mashes Jamaican clash culture with old-school UK drum & bass to add a distinctive flavour to a powerful, modern sound.
Pristine production keeps things razor-sharp, but Kingston Bass is constantly looking West to the Caribbean or back in time to 90s d&b raves. It all comes together nicely in the shape of four almighty tracks – Good Body Gal’, ‘Mad Ting’, ‘Hands Up’ and ‘Fireface’ – each with its own cataclysmic bassline.
Kingston Bass is out now on London-based label Audio Danger Records. Listen below or head to www.audiodanger.co.uk to buy.
