16Bit - Cobra

1. Cobra
2. Jump
3. Can You Show Me What Head Is

Three thunderous dubs from 16Bit launched from Kromestar's Southside Dub Stars imprint. Lead cut 'Cobra' picks Indian tablas and sitars as its source material before mangling them into shape on a rugged display of dynamic halfstep for the rave. 'Jump' on the flip is our pick of the bunch, setting the riddim with skanking piano stabs which 16-Bit duly fills in with growling synthlines while managing to keep a heavyweight flow. 'Can You Show Me What Head Is' flips this formula inversely for a out-and-out nasty riddim flecked with ragga samples to provide a neat textural counterpoint. Nasty, Nasty,

  2. Thank-you, this is brilliant. Reminds me a little of Chase n Status' 'Eastern Jam' - ridiculously heavy and inventive bass styles with Indian influence!
