New Release - KIR259 - Sneaker & The Dryer - Tribute to Jack w/ Remixes by Exodus & ReepR, Johnny Dangerously and OLMEC

Following the wicked success of Karetus’ “Loudness War” Kick It Recordings returns with their first release from Sneaker & The Dryer for KIR259.

Bringing you the business in a big way, Sneaker & The Dryer light things up with a massive Broken House stormer in “Tribute to Jack”. Paying homage to the recently departed long time activist and author Jack Herer, the S&D boys start things off with heavy kicks and wicked synths leading into the first break which is quickly followed by the rolling Electro bassline and original vox. Wicked edits abound and ravey stabs keep the energy building as you work your way into the main breakdown. Trancey leads and heavily verbed zaps combine with filtered vocals for an epic hands in the air moment before it all comes back in like a freight train with lasers taking ya back, that’s the Real Jack!

Peak Hour Music’s Dj Exodus & ReepR are up first on remix duties and they’ve turned in a guaranteed chart topper of the 4/4 kind. Slick beats and pristine production are paired with vocoded vox and a jammin bassline complimented by the immense trance leads for a feel good groover with plenty of umph.

Keeping  things popping,  OLMEC returns to Kick It with a massive remix and proves why he is quickly rising to the top of the Electro House charts with his tough and driving yet upbeat version of “Tribute to Jack”. Big time bass and glitched out vocal samples make for a wicked and funky tuna that will keep dancers feet moving straight through to the end. 

Rounding things out with a proper Breakbeat workout, Johnny Dangerously delivers the goods with his funked up “Kush” mix. Old School flavor meets Nu Skool vibes lighting ya up with talking bass that wobbles like a top gone mad from one too many rips. Big Trance stabs and pitched down vox roll you into the super dubby breakdown halfway through before a final dose of low ends finishes you off.

Broken Robot Madness - Free Tune, Mixes and Remix Competition

Ah yes, we've arrived at that glorious day known as Friday again, how about a little bit of free business to sweeten the pot! Today we've got a plethora of stuff for you from Broken Robot so we're gonna get right down to it starting off with their latest release from Hedflux, Neurodriver and Luqas, both of which tunes have been riding high in the Beatport charts.

First up is the highly anticipated collaboration between Hedflux and Neurodriver entitled "Energy Vibration". This track is the perfect showcase of both artist's style, fusing Hedflux's driving Tech-Funk Psy goodness  with Neurodriver's intricately crafted synth work to create an acidic peak-time of a monster guaranteed to get any dancefloor moving! The first half of the tune builds hypnotically, introducing the sample from which the track takes its name and midway through there is a deceptively serene breakdown, right before the full force of the second drop is unleashed in a moment described by one of the Freerange DJs as "The Epitome of Rave"!

On the flip-side is a darker, more alien workout resulting from Hedflux's teaming up with new Broken Robot signing and Psy-Breaks pioneer LuQas. "Reptoid" chugs along menacingly, with tripped out blips and squarks underpinned by a relentless bassline, twisting and turning until finally reaching the main breakdown. At this point the most twisted lead line is introduced: sounding something like a cross between Hallucinogen's infamous Gamma Goblins and gray with a stomach ache! This is one tune that will positively devastate those night-time floors!

   BRR016 - Energy Vibration / Reptoid by BrokenRobot

Next up is the Tech-Tastic and Psy-rific one hour Burning Man Mix from Neurodriver. Fans of the Breakbeat mastermind have long been waiting for a new mix from him and you will not be disappointed when the hard and heavy basslines and supersized acid riffs start melting your mind and pulsating your body. Packed full of massive tunas like "In the Rough", "Teleport", "Trompeta", and of course "Energy Vibration", this is sixty minutes of maniacal madness that will leave you wanting more, grab it for free!

Exclusive Free Tune - Calvin Harris - Feel So Close - Kwerk Re-Rub

Ah yes, another Hump Day is upon us and another free tuna is up for grabs. The one like Kwerk returns to the Kick It Blog with a wicked Exclusive banger  you can't get anywhere else. Completely re-Kwerking Calvin Harris' "Feel So Close", this one is more of a remix than a re-rub and should have been released with the original in my opinion!

Starting things off your kicked in the ass by all new drums with that signature Kwerk sound giving you a nice chunky breakbeat backed by filtering vox and arps to set the tone. The first breakdown takes you into a big hands in the air moment featuring the vocals and keys from the original and then it's time for the bass! Heavy on the low ends and packed with punch she's beefier than a double quarter pounder with cheese!  Big edits and wicked sampling from the original mixed with little female stabs keep the energy rising right into the main break where you're treated with another round of vocals and epic cheekiness to keep things kicking. This one is sure to rock any crowd it's faced with so cop it for yourself and check out the video for the original while you're at it.

2 Videos - RC Sparks and Tapolsky & VovKING

Starting things off for us today, we've got a little something different. Did you ever play with RC cars and what not when you were a kid? Have you been longing to get back into it having seen some of the bad ass stuff that is out there? Or, maybe you are an RC enthusiast yourself and you're looking for a good place to meet some like minded people. Well my friends, today is your lucky day because RC Sparks and RC Adventures are just what you're looking for. 

My man Aaron AKA Dj Medic has been working hard day in and day out since 2008, building his RC Empire. Realizing back then that there was a niche to be filled in the world of RCs when it came to Hi-Def Videos, build videos, and really just quality footage all around, Aaron got down to work with his first video which has received 80,000 views since it was first posted. Since that time Aaron has produced over 300 videos and his YouTube channel "RC Adventures" has received more than 19,000,000 views and that figure is growing by 1 million per month!

Aaron has also put together a wicked website in RC that has everything from the Sparks Blog to videos, tons of pics, and the Sparks Apparel Store. Not to mention Aaron recently started the RC Sparks forum which in a very short period is already nearing 2,000 members, largely due to their no "Dickheads" atmosphere they have cultured.

To celebrate the 300th Episode of RC Adventures, Aaron teamed up with Kick It Recordings for a no holds barred 1st Ever mash-up of new, old and unseen footage. Lupo's "Star Raging Havoc" the Access Denied Remix (Previously Released on Kick It Recordings) provides the soundtrack to this high energy and fun filled video. You may laugh, you may cry but you will definitely smile and you may even pick up the keys when it's done and head out the door to your local hobby shop, I'm just saying, this shit looks fun!

Next up we've got a bit of utter madness coming at you from Tapolsky & VovKING. If you haven't been keeping up with the VovKING, you need to get over to his Soundcloud page and check him out! Tapolsky on the other hand I can't quite figure out and not speaking any Russian doesn't really help. All I know is the guy is out of his gourd and he was involved with this video so big ups to him!

To tell you the truth, I'm not even sure of the full name of this song but I know it has something to do with Moombahton, maybe one of our readers can post a comment and help me out ;)

New Release - KIR258 - Karetus - Loudness War w/ Dilemn Remix

Holy crap what do you know, I have internet again!! Sorry for the lack of posts in the past week but it's kind of hard to get them done with no connection to the web! I'll try and make it up to you guys in the coming days with some good freebies. Today we are talking about Kick It's latest release which just dropped worldwide on Tuesday and man is it a monster, one of our biggest releases to date for sure!

Hailing from Portugal, newcomers to the game Karetus have quickly been establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with their unique and in your face cutting edge style. Making their first appearance on Kick It, the ones like Karetus have been smashing tunes with their aggressive and dynamic sound and this time they are hitting you with the “Loudness War”. Rough and rugged right from the get go “Loudness War” features crisp and clean drums paired with slick edits to start things off. Quickly making your way into the first breakdown you are immediately assaulted by intense sub bass frequencies that will resonate your soul as the massive and warping synths take hold of your mind.  A quick vocal sample and then it’s time for the face melting bassline and missile like  leads to do their dirty work as they pummel you about the ears knocking you senseless, you wanted a war, you got it!

On remix duties we have the French mastermind known as Dilemn bringing us an epic slice of techy business that has already been rocking dancefloors round the globe with it’s no nonsense heads down approach to “Loudness War”. Heavy kicks and shuffling hats take you into the first drop where you are greeted by wicked synths and a colossal build up to set things back in motion with authority. Electric and wobbling low ends provide plenty of bounce as you make your way into the wicked dubbed out breakdown before it all builds back up again with maximum intensity for another hands in the air moment leaving no one left standing still when the beat comes slamming back in like an earthquake, mission complete!

"Loudness War" has been Featured by both Beatport and Juno Download, here is what Juno has to say about this massive tuna.

"Although filed under breakbeat, the original version of "Loudness War" actually inhabits the no-man's-land between Breaks and Dubstep. It's loud, wobbly, intense and murky, utilizing the sort of colossal, over-the-top builds and spooky vocal samples that suggest nuclear Armageddon may be a matter of days away. If it was any more foreboding, John Simpson would be reporting live from the dancefloor whilst wearing a fetching flak jacket. Dilemn remix, opts for a grungy mix of grandiose War Of The Worlds builds, crunchy Electro House builds and bowel-evacuating bottom end."

Head on over to Beatport or wherever you get your digital music and pick up a copy for yourself and then see what else Karetus have been up to by following the links below.

Forthcoming Tune - Stylus Rex - Blatant Elephant - Official Video

I hope everybody's having a good week so far. Today we've got something a little different for you coming by way of Ground Level Records and Stylus Rex.

Stylus Rex made his mark with his first self-pressed vinyl "Boomstick" released in 2005 which was picked up by Hiedi Van Amstell to sell through Phonica and also by Ray Vinyl through Vinyl Addiction. Since that time the Stylus Rex sound has come a long way. Keeping his head down and his beats hard, Stylus has continued to release a plethora of material on labels like Punk Funk, Re:Connect, Control Breaks, Bronzerat, and BijouBeats, along with five singles currently on Ground Level Records. These have all worked to establish Stylus Rex as one of the heavy hitters in Breaks.

His latest work "Blatant Elephant" is due out on Ground Level Records on Sept. 19th and we've got the official video featuring wicked visuals by Purform, Rob Seward and Nicolas Deveaux. The track itself starts out with phat kicks, throbbing bass and echoed vox to set the tone. Wicked guitars provide the funk just before the blatant elephant sounds his trunk letting you know it's time to get up, way up. Super techy but packed with goodness, Stylus Rex takes you on a journey through the land of the pachyderm and it feels good!
