LD$$VOL003-1 - TrueSpirit - Kill It Properly [Liondub Street Series] by Liondub International published on 2014/01/25 01:52:34 +0000 Artist: Truespirit Title: Liondub Street Series Volume 3 : Kill It Label: Liondub International Catalog #: LD$$VOL003 Format: Digital Release Date: February 4th, 2014 File Under: Drum & Bass / Jungle / Ragga For the third entry for Liondub International’s Street Series, we are proud to present the production debut of Truespirit, a storied figure best known from his days in the jungle and garage days as Marga MC. A true spirit in the truest sense, his long history through the pirate radio scene and the raves, resulted in him working with a tremendous list of top talents and it is clearly reflected in his sound which references his reggae roots through later developments up to the present day styles. ‘Kill it Properly’ bursts out with deep, old-school referencing pads over rolling drums, before a rude bassline takes over to carry the tune through to the end over vocal snippets, echoed car horns, and crisp minimalist production details. Made purely for the dance, ‘Run Tingz’ runs fx-drenched vocal samples over heavy hard-hitting bass, clean drums, and high energy. One of legendary singer Johnny Osbourne’s famous tunes is refixed for ‘The Farda’, this time with deeper, headier treatments on the backing track that recall vintage dub styles. ‘Jungle Techno’ goes back to the bass bins and works dramatic orchestral & vocal samples against elephant-stomping bass. Finally, ‘Jah Loving’ is more playful with its hand drums, low-bit sounds, and classic dub bleeps. Another breakthrough for the Liondub label, Kill It from Truespirit will undoubtedly get heavy rotation on the Jungle DnB scene throughout 2014 and beyond. Classic.
