|| The second Killa Bites compilation
project featuring new and classic tracks from an array of Moving
Shadow artists, as well as various choice cuts from some of
the scenes finest. Compiled by Technical Itch (aka: Mark Caro);
No surprises for guessing that this album contains some SAVAGE
Tech Itch is renowned throughout drum & bass circles not
only for his superb programming and production skills, but also
for his domination of some of the filthiest bass-lines, drum-sequencing
& full-on sound creations the drum & bass scene has
ever known. Over the past few years he's unleashed frighteners
like 'The Dreamer' (SH99), The Virus (SH101) and 'Stronghold'
(SH116), and his most recent release on Moving Shadow was the
strictly limited MSXEP005, in September 2000, which sold out
on day of release, and helped to cement his reputation as one
of the scene's leading producers.
For Killa Bites 2, Mark has searched out his favourite tracks,
dub-plates, DATs and white labels, as well as ringing round
that select bunch of DJs who regularly play out on the club
circuit, to find cutting-edge material for this, his first compilation
project for Moving Shadow.
Selected artists for Killa Bites 2 include household names like
Dom & Roland (showcasing brand new material) and Decoder
& Substance (aka Kosheen - say no more) make their presence
felt. Diesel Boy gives an American flavour to the mix, with
Stakka & Skynet from Under Fire Records and Konflict from
Renegade Hardware/Audio Blueprint Records also laying down the
beats. Meanwhile Calyx, Biostacis, Ice Minus & Tech Itch
bring their own particular brand of darkness into the proceedings...
There are also some excellent musical pairings in the form of
tracks from Dom featuring Keaton, Simon Bassline-Smith &
Drumsound, Kemel & Rob Data as well as Ice Minus & Decoder.
Add to this some brand new remixes: Aquasky's "Lords of
Motion" by Tech Itch, Dieselboy's Invid by Future Cut and
Tech Itch's own remix of Reborn and its starting to get really
interesting. Tech Itch also includes some new names on the album:
boys currently doing the business out there - DJ Hive and Cujo.
Lots to get your teeth into, that's if Killa Bites' razor-sharp
beats don't get you first!
