I Killed Kenny Featuring Slick Don - Crux
Release Date 25/02/2012
Following the success of their summertime party anthem 'Let's Go' with Jamie George, I Killed Kenny drop their second release on Four40 Records in the form of Crux EP.
At the forefront of the release and sharing the same name is 'Crux' a hard-hitting grime collaboration with hype Midlands' MC Slick Don. Consisting of sharp, snappy drums and a heavy electric bass-line, Crux was born to tear up dance-floors. The Original Mix sees Slick Don lace the track with slick lyrics and bubbly flow adding to the raw energy of the beat. The instrumental is also available on the EP separately.
Next we have 'HS1' a fast paced Trap-style track bound to cause havoc. 'HS1' will be fire in the clubs, sounding almost like a melodic siren in its approach, the gangsta-style synth leads are the main focal point of the beat. Complimenting that we have great percussion work - rolling hi-hats, stiff claps and heavy toms working so well together helping to strengthen the high octane energy in 'HS1'. IKK have made a killer with this track, its style and attitude is one that is bound to receive acclaim in the clubs.
Last but by no means least we have 'Crossover' - again this isn't a song that can be pinpointed in its musical style. Seemingly taking influences from a spectre of genres, it doesn't matter how you look at it 'Crossover' is a party riddim. IKK create yet another tantalizing and up-lifting drum line, blending it brilliantly with deep bass stabs and rhythmic metallic chimes to create a funky, bass-heavy beat guaranteed to crank the temperature in any dance.
Crux EP is a great showcase of the productive talents of the I Killed Kenny duo and also a great reflection of their creative energy which is without a doubt bound to long influence the Dance music scene
