AutomAte Tech break their silence with an absolutely savage new single from Fortitude. Turn Bad dials the aggression up to 11 with hard metallic snares and a snarling bassline leading the charge. Throw in a cheeky half-time breakdown and plenty of tension building cymbal action and you’ve got one big bad slice of up front tech D&B.
Over on the flip Kiwi neuro badman Dose teams up with the mysterious Dual Focus to turn in what AutomAte describe as a “trademark peak-time headbanging remix” (according to this Dutty Audio podcast tracklist DF = Dose & DJ Meltdown, for anyone curious). The remix certainly fits that bill, swapping in a slightly more rolling break and a riffier approach to basslines that fans of Gridlok and the like should enjoy. For me the original mix takes the gold, but they’re both worthy dancefloor stompers. Check out the clips below and look for this from Feb 2nd at all good digital stores.
