SR drops his ‘Squat Rave’ LP on Locked Up Music
Locked Up Music are extremely excited to announce the label’s first solo artist LP. SR’s ‘Squat Rave’ LP encompasses everything they love at the label and as a result, have decided to press a limited 4 track vinyl release. The vinyl includes the title track ‘Squat Rave’, ‘Clockwise’ alongside ‘Vinyl Junkie’, ‘Deepest Soul’ with label bosses Section and a vinyl exclusive ‘Jungle Bass’ alongside SR’s Metalheadz sparring partner Jem-One.
Opening up SR ‘Squat Rave’ LP is ‘A to the Z’. A frantic drum workout with cleverly peppered hip-hop samples to start the LP off with a bang. ‘Rubber Neck’ is a funk-driven roller with a hard enough edge to satisfy a wide spectrum of Drum & Bass purveyors. The title track is a bouncy stepper, which pushes SR’s sounds to the next level. Our premiere ‘LSD User’ harks to the mid 90s with mentasms and amens. This sees SR and Jem-One at their darkest best.
‘Clockwise’ welcomes Vinyl Junkie to ‘Locked Up’ and provides a perfect balance to the project with liquid vibes and funky hooks. Solitaire combines ethereal pads
With dark drums and pounding bass, complemented by ‘Deepest Soul’ alongside label bosses Section. ‘Magna Carta’ has driving breaks and old school stabs which is guaranteed to devastate the dancefloor wherever it’s played. ‘You Understand Me’ features SR’s long-time pal Fync and you can hear the chemistry in the production, arrangement and most importantly the vibes. ‘Summer Flow’ highlight’s SR’s diversity. As the intro builds to a sublime drop it keeps building with distorted sound juxtaposed with soulful vocals. To top off this amazing piece of work is ‘Out There’. This is a track that will sound familiar to many yet it’s drenched in SR’s unique take on chopped breaks, sci-fi fx and slamming basslines.
