King Yoof

Warrior Sound EP

Sub Slayers

10
Yoof has really pulled out all the stops again for this EP. The lead track features young London-based Rasta MC Jah Mirikle vibing over a sweet skank, offset by dubwise horns and choice sample snippets. Ripe for Carnival, new Sub Slayers boys GOLD add some more wobbly bottom-end and percussion on their take, the Hellfire Machina mix is proper dubwise dubstep bizzle, and Shut Up & Dance step up da riddims on their raw, marauding renegade re-do. As if this ain't enough, Yoof supplies another two tracks: future jungle cut 'Every Night Is A Soundclash' channels the original 'Champion Sound' dub classic, and 'Call The Undertaker' - with its bobbly horizon bass and bad-ass beats - sends you to the cemetery. Great stuff.
