Print Flinch and Infuze proved they are a tour de force with their 2013 collaboration, “Belly of the Beast.” Enlisting the ragga stylings of Elan, the original “Beast” is a stripped, reggae‐influenced trap tune boasting a resonating low end and hints of jungle sprinkled throughout. Trolley Snatcha injects his sonic-spanning sound on his remix, taking the “Beast” to a higher key range, offering a melodic overture amidst growling synth pads, sharp snare paradiddles, and a grimey dubstep beat. The fresh remix comes equipped with an awesomely eerie music video and while it might have you rethinking your next fishing trip, the video is perfectly soundtracked by Trolley Snatcha’s gnarly “Beast” edit.

photoContinuing his forever eclectic journey, Flinch returns to SMOG Records with a four‐track EP in Too Much.

Too Much starts out with the title track and gives healthy nod to old school breakbeats. Asking the question “How much is too much?,” the vocals, provided by rapper Dell Harris, bounce over a slick house rhythm and are joined by a bassline that’ll warm you up in no time. “Gypsy” follows, with a hyper‐trap groove and expansive melodic synths that have become synonymous with Flinch’s classic aesthetic. “Y’all Already Know” is a punchy, peaktime track that features Trouble & Bass talent Star Eyes. With crisp claps and rattling bass kicks, “Y’all Already Know” is guaranteed to make bootys move. Pairing up with I Need $$, the fourth track is “Deep” and brings the EP to close. Starting with transient effects that could easily double as a soundtrack to a space odyssey, Flinch cuts through the atmospherics using zipper‐distorted synths pads which, in turn, gives “Deep” its well‐balanced structure.

Never one to reside among the confines of one BPM range, Too Much is just another reminder of Flinch’s tastemaking capabilities, delivering a wide selection of tunes for both the house and bass communities.

Two_Fresh_BLIMPUS_SMOG053_FIN_webTwin brothers Kendrick and Sherwyn Nicholls , otherwise known as Two Fresh, have gained some serious momentum over the years. Though they’ve received endorsements from many industry heavyweights, it is their stellar catalogue of tunes that keeps audiences coming back for more. With instrumental hip hop as the backbone of their output, Two Fresh’s influences cover a broad spectrum and though it makes it hard to pin their sound into one genre, it is the way they craft their beats that make it all their own. Armed with vibrant synths and bass-driven beats, the boys captured the warm vibes of summer with the extended player Blimpus.

Check out the remixes by Starkey, Lil Texas, and Atlantic Connection, in stores now!
