New Release - KIR249 - Kwerk EP

Yes yes that's right it's new release time and let me say I am stoked about this one. Kick It Recordings is back with KIR249 featuring a four track EP from new comer to the scene and Kick It, Kwerk. Just recently relocated to London, Kwerk steps up big time with his first effort and is already receiving support from many of the top names in Breaks. Kwerk starts us off with "Bassline Punk", a heads down driving tuna complete with wicked leads, throbbing bass, killer vocals and a proper Old School vibe. Second in the EP is "Need You" which is another bassline banger. Ravey synths and rolling lows are combined with a super funky and fun main breakdown giving "Need You" an upbeat edge to balance out the grimey bass. Third in line is the massive "Switch That Bass" and if you like Nu Skool Breaks, there is no way you are not going to get down to this one! Thumping kicks and the switch that bass vox start us off on the right foot. Shuffling hats and a couple of sweeps get us into the short and sweet first breakdown and then it's all about the business and the bassline! Clean and crisp all around, everything about this track says dancefloor rocker. Tons of energy, a funky break and humongous sub-freqs, what more can you ask for. The final piece in the EP is "Light & Dark". Meaty kicks and clappy snares get us bouncing as the acid lead drops in to add the groove. Taking things back a step "Light & Dark" is a proper belter to get a gig started or chill peeps out mid set giving them a moment to breath but keeping them moving all the same. All four of these tracks will rock a crowd so head on over to wherever you buy your digital music and pick up the new Kwerk EP!
