Newschool garage is well and truly back at the forefront of UK dance music as we conistently see heavyweight line ups across both releases and live events grace our fair shores. We have been truly blessed over the last few months to come across heavyweight regular releases from the likes of Conducta, Limita, Movement, Moony and many more, with each party bringing something original and still classic to the table.
Two of the leading lights within this extensive revival movement for us have to be London based producer Witchdoctor and newschool UKG specialists: Strictly Flava. As a producer, we have seen Witchdoctor take the scene by storm, with a bag of well recieved releases on heavyweight labels such as Slime Recordings and Hausmade. Strictly Flava have done the same but in label format, with their releases recieiving critical acclaim from some of the top dogs in the scene, bringing serious vibrancy to every drop they put out.
We were beyond chuffed therefore when they approached us about hosting an early listen to Witchdoctor’s brand new ‘From The Inside’ EP, which showcases him at his very best from start to finish, incoorporating exciting grooves and nostalgic chord progressions across with mammoth originals. We have been given a sneak peak into the EP, exclusively available for you guys to stream ahead of time via this post and this post only.
As a composition, ‘Ecstasy’ in a modern garage masterpiece, pulling in all the originale elements of the genre that make it such a heartfelt area of UK bass music for so many of us. From the bright, exciting melodic chord movements to the perfectly processed skipping drums to the subtle, yet spicy sub leads, lurking in the lower reigons of the mix. You can check out the track below for yourself, before the full three track releases becomes available.
