The dynamic duo of DJ C and MC Zulu hook up again for another rugged bashment squeeze on ‘Darling’. The title cut tracks a similar route to their killer ‘body work’ riddim, rolling on the same mid paced bashment tempo but this time adding a rude grinding electro riff and industrial cowbell to rough it up some more in vocal and instrumental versions. Ghislain Poirier steps in on remix duties, adding a much needed slab of bottom end pressure and tweaking the rhythm with subtle phasing and flanging for a future bashment effect. Rugged rudeboy bizzle – KILLER twelve.
This single was first released as a Mashit MP3 download a couple months ago. Now it can be yours on 12-inch vinyl from shops like Boomkat and Juno Records in the U.K., Hardwax in Germany and Forced Exposure in the U.S.
DJ C & Zulu Gods & Robots Mixtape
Next Tuesday, April 29, 2008, get ready for the Gods & Robots Mixtape; a 31-track, 1-hour continuos DJ C mix of Zulu’s vocals backed by hype party tracks from producers the world over (Argentina, Belgium, Canada, England, Israel, Portugal, and cities across the U.S. are all represented). Guest vocal appearances by Los Angeles rappers Aceyalone and Jah Orah, plus Tel Aviv singer Onili, round out the productions by artists like Montreal’s Ghislain Poirier, Brooklyn’s David Last, Tel Aviv’s Sabbo, and many others.
The mixtape will be followed by the DJ C & Zulu Gods & Robots album featuring a number of their vinyl singles, which have continually sold out of the shops and have been getting heavy rotation from party DJs the world over. Add to that four brand new, previously unreleased tracks plus remixes by Ghislain Poirier and Chrissy Murderbot, and you’ve got Gods & Robots. It’ll be released in the Mashit shop on May 13, ’08 and soon after that will be available at iTunes, eMusic, Napster, Rhapsody and all the other usual suspects.
