The Classified series on Total Science’s mighty CIA Records drops in heavy with four killer cuts. This first outing in the series sees some of the labels long time stalwarts & one of the finest new blood step up to the plate.
Total Science & SPY’s heavyweight classic ‘Whoonga’ was rinsed by all who had it – and starting off the EP comes a tough remix from Chroma, which is sure to be no different. One of the best classic breaks teamed with a weighty full range bassline form the backbone of this definitely dancefloor friendly track – a surefire number in the club.
The second piece sees none other than the music master Calibre, returning to the label once again. His numerous outings on CIA have always oozed class, and ‘Stoned’ is no different. The shuffling beats and trademark heavy, dubwise bassline precisely showcase the mood he was trying to purvey, the track drawing you deep into the zone.
CIA owners Total Science step up for the third cut with a renowned team-up, joining with Riya for the sublime ‘Walk The Same Lines.’ Already seriously rinsed on BBC Radio 1, Riya’s beautiful and touching vocals glides seamlessly over tight beats and glorious shimmers of melody – set to become another Total Science classic for sure.
Not wanting to leave any stone unturned, Metalheadz man of the moment Mako steps up for cut four – and it’s a stormer. Trademark chopped breaks, ripping midbasses and a hot vocal stamp this track as one to get heads turning and feet moving in the club.
An EP chock full of quality, the first outing in the Classified Series is a certified winner with a bit of everything for all discerning DnB heads.
