Shakedown EP

Saucy Records
Who said UK bass had to be all dark, brooding and mysterious? Southampton's Pelikann steps up with a trio of raw but rambunctious bangers that should keep everyone smiling in the dance. 'Shakedown' is all burlesque rap samples, scatter-shot garagey breakbeats and over-the-top synth stabs, while 'Calm It' goes for an Eastern vibe, sending down twisted bass motifs to compete with unusual percussive drops and a gorgeously unsettling synth breakdown. Finally, 'Badboy Sound' fires up the big guns and destroys the rave with a madcap kick and clap riddim topped off with roughouse ragga stylings, bruising distorted 808 bass stabs and lashings of spacey, video game-style synthwork.
