‘Spooky remix!!’ -Dubbel Dutch [Mixpak]
‘This is a lot!’ – Slackk [Nmbrs/UTTU]
‘Massive EP, love all the remixes’ – Mumdance [Mad Decent]

 

The first release of 2012 looks backwards but looks to the future with a huge set of remixes of Rossi B & Luca’s lost grime classic ‘Mind The Gap’ featuring original grime don Flirta D. The track was due to come out on the mighty A.R.M.Y back in the day but fate conspired against it and it has remained a secret weapon for a select few DJs.

 

This release presents the classic original for the first time and it bears all the hallmarks of classic grime with orchestral stabs, swirling samples and booming bass accompanied by Flirta’s signature wordplay. Grime remixes come from two of the best in the current scene, Spooky and Teeza. The former upping the ante on the original with robotic percussion and nasty synths, the former slicing together a classic break and booming 808s for his ‘Temix’. Mutant bass man of the moment Submerse wears his bassline rave hat for a bouncing bassline remix with just the right amount of ’92 and Sarantis turns it up to 160bpm for a menacing juke tempo missile. Old school, new school, bridging the gap.

2011 marks five years of Senseless Records, five years since the soundsystem culture of Leeds, UK inspired us to press the first Sarantis white label grime EP. In that time we’ve searched the UK and far beyond for international heat reaching out from Warsaw to Caracas. We’ve released almost twenty EPs and two albums of technicolour bass music from an extended family of artists including vocalists like Max Romeo, Warrior Queen, Badness, Foreign Beggars and YT and producers like Jack Sparrow, Starkey, Ghosttown, Phantom, Kanji Kinetic, Brackles, MRK1, Pocz & Pacheko and many more.

Pandemonium circus is a shadowy group of performers featured in time out who have been working on the underground for a number of years under various names and guises, with acclaimed groups such as the Invisible Circus, the Mutoid Waste company, Prangsta, Guerilla Zoo, and the Boomtown Fair.
