Dark Ops drop new music on Locked Up Music
Dark Ops were formed by Section and Flashback in February 2019 after the success of their ‘Return’ EP on Section’s Locked Up Music imprint. Soon after this release OB1 From Rebel Music saw a clip of their anthemic ‘Jungle Demon’ and signed it right away, which became the title track from the debut EP on Rebel Music.
2019 had lots of highlights for Dark Ops, with several gigs in London and Brighton, across clubs and radio. Dark Ops are on a mission and 2020 is set to cement them in the scene with plenty of releases already lined up on Skeleton, Rebel Music, Locked Up Music and their first vinyl release under their new alias on Soul Intent’s Dope Plates.
Their latest offering is a two tracker dropping on Locked Up Music on 9th March. Our premiere ‘Warlock’ starts as a melodic, rolling track that drops with hypnotic stabs and break edits. The track moves smoothly into the breakdown and just when you expected more of the same, in comes an almighty Reese, building like a tidal wave. We’ll let the track tell the rest of the story. ‘The Maze’ is a stepper. Live drums and edits move the track over a simple yet effective bassline. Once again Dark Ops aren’t satisfied with repeating the first drop and this time the second drop hits like a moving truck. Watch out for these two in 2020.
