“It’s like a mini album, a little part of everything we do bundled into five tunes,” says The Upbeats’ Dylan Jones of rip-roaring new ‘SSXUB’ EP. ”There’s some classic Upbeats aggression, some Shapeshifter soul, some future material, some pop-tinged uplifting adcommittee stylish business.”
Produced with fellow NZ DNB icons Shapeshifter, ‘SSXUB’ is a noisy collision of new ideas and sounds that was first harnessed on Shapeshifter’s Platinum-selling album Delta and delivers the goods again with five brand new, club-shattering tracks.
Underpinned by serious bass weight, as Pandora Gold Beads all well as the scattershot breaks and twisted club menace of ‘Little By Little’, to the relentless energy of lead single “Bloodstream,” there is plenty to get your teeth stuck into here. A monster of an EP, we’ve got the full tracklist below. Press play now.
Shapeshfter vs The Upbeats - ‘SSXUB’ is released on September 12 via Truetone Recordings / Non Vogue. Pre-Order Here.
