This week’s Dojo Damager comes courtesy of Lincoln-based production duo Soligen & Type-2 who bring a wicked slice of modulated tech funk to Nurtured Beatz. Amping things up a bit compared to some of the imprint’s deeper releases, It Gets Lively rolls hard and heavy with crispy breaks and a moving, scuzzed up bassline. Punchy business! Hit up the Nurtured Beatz Bandcamp to grab this one right now, with full release coming next week.
Agressor Bunx makes his second entry in the Dojo Damager series with another absolute stomper, this time for Bad Taste Recordings! The aptly named Total Destroy is a straight up neurofunk power play, building tension with hammering snare riddims and throbbing bassline gristle before dropping into full roll madness. The scuzz on the low end in this tune is just unbelievably satisfying; get ready for this one to wreck floors!
Total Destroy drops this Friday with B-side Crusader exclusively on Beatport, so check out the clip to wet your appetite and keep an eye out! If you’re hungry for more Bunx action then check out his mix for the Bad Taste Podcast here…gnarly business.
Tuesday rolls around once again so it’s time for another slamming dancefloor selection!

This week’s dancefloor weapon comes from Future Funk Music and Pulsate, who closes out his new EP with a storming remix of Minor Rain’s Villain.

The groove on this one is fantastic and the energy levels couldn’t be much higher; check it out below and grab the EP from the Future Funk bandcamp page right now.
Today’s Dojo Damager comes courtesy of French-born, Glasgow-based producer Phonograph who delivers a slice of chunky, rolling techstep for TA:LTD in the form of Check The Technique.

When names as big as Current Value & Maztek join forces for the first time you know the results will be special! Their collaborative efforts just dropped on Subsistenz in the form of the fearsome sounds of Feedback Echo, and it’s every bit as gnarly as you’d expect. Keeping the beats fairly sparse to give the throbbing, morphing bassline room, this one should induce more than a few bassfaces on the dancefloor. Danger! Check out the clip below and hit up Beatport to grab it right now.
Rising neurofunk star Impak brings us today’s Dojo Damager as he delivers a storming new remix of Cause4Concern’s Time Stopper.
