Vital Techniques and M.C Pean’s grime sheller ‘Snakes and Adders’ is on the receiving end of a huge remix E.P from some of the top producers in the UK Bass music game. The original, released on ‘Second to None Music‘ is a
head-bopping grime anthem from Leeds’ favourite producer and M.C set up.
When Vital Techniques and Pean link up you already know the tune is going to slap, and this hand-picked assortment of producers knew they had to deliver.
Stepping up first on remix duty is up and coming Bradford producer Bailey P.
Following the release of his single ‘Diamonds‘, Bailey, who has previously released on Wub Club and Deviant Audio, brings his stellar bassline style to ‘Snakes and Adders’.
Bailey wastes no time in implementing some classic 4×4 sounds in the buildup, combined perfectly with the vocals of M.C Pean. The vocals give way to a seriously punchy and unapologetically wobbly bassline. The bassline
twists and turns as the track progresses, with the return of the vocals retaining the gritty vibes of this track. Bailey’s last way showcases his talent as a producer, altering ‘Snakes and Adders’ so skilfully into a bassline banger. Expect to see him quickly climb the ranks and continue to grow an already impressive résumé of sets and releases.
2022 has already been a huge year for Samurai Breaks following the release of his album ‘XTC Generation‘ on Off Me Nut. Now, he continues to set the pace with his own jungle take on ‘Snakes and Adders‘. With this remix Samurai turns up the pressure. The raised tempo of the vocals is twinned with militant jungle breaks that continues throughout the track. Samurai’s remix feels 100 miles a minute, but there are no complaints to be had. It’s a rapid take on the grime original and sums up Samurai’s style perfectly: high energy, high intensity and high octane tunes. With heavy- weight releases and hard-hitting live sets, it’s no surprise Samurai Breaks has been playing at some of the biggest festivals and venues in the UK including Glastonbury and Phonox. You can expect to see him at many more in the future.
Last to turn his hand to the remix is versatile producer Fork and Knife. F&K has masterfully turned his hand at genres throughout the bass spectrum, from grime and drill to garage and 140. Having released on prestigious bass labels
such as 1forty, he shows his creative and skill with this fresh remix.
Fork and Knife transforms the grimey original into a bass driven stomper that is gritty and heavy. The top-tier vocals of Pean are truly showcased in this remix, taking the spotlight alongside the grime beat. There is no doubt that
Fork and Knife could have chosen any genre to flip the original into, but he definitely made the right choice here.
