Gridlok & Dieselboy – MDMX [Project 51]

When two legends of the scene come together in the studio it tends to lead to something special, and MDMX is no exception; Gridlok and Dieselboy combine their fearsome energies on a massive tech roller which might not win any points for originality but wins all the points for dancefloor destruction. Over on the flip Gridlok gets another collab on with Jamal, keeping his usual twisted bassline stylings but opting for a stomping, swung beat rather than the usual full tilt rolling break.

Gridlok – American Dream [Project 51]

While drum & bass is well known for it’s dark side, it’s still unusual to hear of tracks inspired by real-life tragedy. Gridlok‘s latest release for his own Project 51 imprint came about via a rooftop suicide heard from his studio; doesn’t get much darker than that.

Gridlok’s original delivers a melancholy roller which is well worthy of your attention, but the remixes are even better, with the best coming from Sinistarr who delivers a chopped up jungle-esque edit, SPKTRM who brings out the industrial half-step darkness and Mesck who drops the tempo for a warped, gritty dubstep refix. You can even pick up the SPKTRM remix as a free download.
