Dexta, boss of experimental drum & bass label Diffrent Music, teams up with Iliad, aka one half of Conduct, to deliver ultra-hype anthem 'Popcorn Riddim'.
Coming via the new 'Pick & Mix Vol. 1' compilation on Diffrent offshoot Sweetbox, the track is the very definition of a club banger, purpose-built for multiple rewinds.
Dropping in almost immediately, a tidal wave of hammering breaks and ruthless bass wubbs is unleashed, barely letting up for the track's four-minute run-time. The choppy arrangement, however, means there's a bouncy, upbeat groove throughout.
"It's an attempt at skatty, erratic jump-up in our own funky little way," says Dexta.
'Pick & Mix Vol. 1' is out now, with artists like Lakeway, D'TCH, Squane and Howitzer split over the collection's 15 tracks. Grab a copy from the label Bandcamp.
