Q&A – Cause4Concern

When it comes to legends in the scene, they don’t come much bigger than Cause4Concern. Releasing their own music for nearly two decades and more recently nurturing new talent via their C4C Recordings and C4C LTD digital imprints, Mark and Edd have maintained a position at the forefront of the tech and neuro scene. We caught up with them to find out what keeps them inspired, how they sign music and what lies ahead for the labels. Get to know…

Dojo Damager: C4C – Time Stopper (Impak Remix)

Rising neurofunk star Impak brings us today’s Dojo Damager as he delivers a storming new remix of Cause4Concern’s Time Stopper. The new remix makes great use of the 2002 original‘s hypnotic lead but amps the tension right up with futuristic synths on the intro and an absolutely hammering array of sub hits and percussion on the drop. Relentless business! Check out the clip below and hit up Beatport to grab this one right now.

Duo Infernale – Closer [Infiltrator]

Berlin producers Duo Infernale return to the scene with a great new single for German label Infiltrator Records. Closer provides a chunky teched up stepper with plenty of soul and some lush vocals from Panic Girl; a nice dancefloor warmer for that middle part of the night before the heavy hitters amp things up.

Over on the flip Cause4Concern’s Make Me Wonder gets a great new remix. The original saw release on the now defunct Shadybrain imprint and proved an unusually mellow number compared to C4C’s usually banging output, and this new remix does the original’s vibe justice while flipping things around with a rolling break and techy bass underpins. Nice!

Check out the clips below and look for this on vinyl and digital from June 15th.

Task Horizon – Evolved EP [Cause4Concern]

Cause4Concern’s releases through their own label have been packing a serious punch of late, and their latest from Task Horizon is no exception. The EP sees Task Horizon giving the remix treatment to two Cause4Concern tunes and two of their own tunes.

Control Freak and Kill The Pain see Task Horizon going in *hard* with bone shaking snares and tearing reese action a plenty. Things are dialed back slightly for Droidz which has a tasty off kilter-ness to it, and the EP is rounded off nicely to the glitched up head banger that is Letting Go. Huge tunes

Cause4Concern – Jinx / Lowlife [C4C]

Cause4Concern have been bashing out top notch techstep bangers on the Drum & Bass scene for well over a decade but this latest release on their own label proves they haven’t even remotely lost their touch.

A side Jinx brings the fire in classic techstep style with a signature C4C warping bassline layered over a stomping drum beat. This is dancefloor slaying material and no mistake. Flipside Lowlife doesn’t disappoint either with hard hitting kicks and skittering snares giving the track tons of movement. Look out for this one on the 31st of December!
