Essential Tuff Love Dubs Releases
Static Function Returnz! Uplifting but haunting, “Retrace” makes the hair on the back of neck stand as Avielle Breen breaks straight through your defenses with her stunning voice and Static Functions’ signature dancefloor storming drumz and face searing synths! It’s equal parts coffee and herb, both directions never felt so nice. And stacking the deck in his favor even further, Adam Crewes-Meyer (aka Static Function) EXPLODES into the B-side with a Drumstep stormer so nasty it could turn ‘Hari Krishna into a badboy’! Melding Dubstep pressure with the 174BPM flavor of Drum & Bass, Static’s ‘DRUMSTEP’ monster “Do You Feel It” is an unstopable titan of dancefloor havoc!
One of TUFF LOVE DUBS most successful and celebrated artists returns with a sprawling Multi-Gera remixes EP of his hit single: “BANG BANG”.
Static Function sits upon the throne with the EP’s opening cut, a ruthless VIP Remix of his storming original whose middle section just HAS to be heard on the dance-floor first hand - it’s pure DEVASTATION!
Following suit, 6 completely fresh mixes from artists around the globe covering styles you’d never have imagined fill the floor at any party:
Setting speed on the change-ups and getting the party started is uAnimal’s “Festival Trap Remix” on cut #2 with a straight to the point bass heavy TRAP killer. Then, newcomer A1 Voodoo sets the time machine to way back mode for a 140BPM “Future Jungle” hardcore anthem mix. Next up Tuff Love mainstay Geoff Bukk returns to the darkside and presents a mental “Dark Dub” remix that you’d better be on your Ritalin before hearing! Shifting into 5th gear, DAVR comes in with a 100BPM Drumfunk / Dubstep transition track that’s so ill! We’re huge lovers of the 100bpm funk DAVR brings to the world, and it’s up in the spot heavy here. Closing out the remixes is Sub Pirate’s amped-up-fast-paced DRUMSTEP mix that just cant stop, wont stop make that body rock!
And finally, closing this label changing EP is Static Function’s original, the one that started it all - remastered and polished to perfection for the 2013, and a fresh generation of Dubstep headz everywhere!
After quickly becoming a California Bay Area legend (while still a teenager!), and debuting on TUFF through his collabo with WE BANG “Bad ‘Tingz” in early 2011 - GETTER returns to TUFF LOVE DUBS with the VILE ‘ish!
“Vile Orchestra” is the sort of nasty nasty Dubstep we’ve come to love from GETTER and it’s brought the freaks out with it - THE JUGGERNAUT comes along for the ride with their rework of the man’s tune, taking the filth to a whole other level.
