KUMO x PATEXX x LIONDUB – War Start – Liondub International
January 20, 2020
Liondub kicks off 2020 proper by adding the vocal talents of Grammy award winning Jamaican singer song-writer Patexx on two time tested DnB cuts produced by Manchester’s Kumo. Kumo shells with hard-hitting minimal bass heavy rollers that prove perfect for Patexx’s murderous lyrical styles. Liondub arranged, mixed and mastered both sound killing cuts adding his knowledge of dubplate culture and technical expertise into the fold. Due to popular demand, we included VIP versions of both riddim tracks for the die-hard DnB selectors.
Kumo, Patexx & Liondub – War Start
Delayed trap style horns create a militant soundscape that
grabs your attention immediately upon hitting play. With a high passed vocal and a quick drum
build the tune gets moving right away.
With a vocoder on the main vox and clever processing the quality of this
tune is one of the first recognizable features.
A steady and crisp drum pattern holds the tune down while a few
different bass sounds melt together perfectly to retain the militant vibe all
while moving all the bodies in the dance.
This tune is minimalist in the right ways but relies heavily on the
perfect mix and master to create an experience that leaves the listener
completely engulfed and wanting more. There is also a VIP version included in the
release without vocals for the djs that want it.
Kumo, Patexx & Liondub – Caan Touch
Resampled pads reminiscent of the late 90’s sound start this
one off with a simple high hat. Before
you know it a super clean break drops and the vocals start up, setting the mood
for the drop. The build disappears for a second before the drop letting the
vocals hang and breathe. When it drops
you get the clean break with some intelligent bass work and a vocoded vocal
that cuts through nicely. Nice and
steady as this one moves along, and the mix and master quality is top notch
making this vocal tune sound radio worthy.
Another nice dancefloor here that could translate to many different set
times depending on what its mixed with.
There is also a VIP version of this tune included in the release that
has no vocals for the djs that are looking for that.
