Critical Impact set to release ‘Sound Boy Killa’
Every now and then, circumstances, talent, and hard work align perfectly to catapult an artist to stratospheric levels of recognition. Critical Impact has been killing it for quite some time, but right now is his moment to step up to Drum & Bass household-name status.
Even before he began producing his own music, he was intimately connected with the scene. Working with Dread Recordings and ATM Magazine, putting in the hours serving customers in Windsor’s Menace Records, all while honing his skills as a DJ, the young Mr Impact put the graft in. An early break was becoming involved with the V Recordings’ Movement nights, where he fell under the expert eye of Bryan Gee, who persuaded him to get in the studio.
His work ethic paid dividends as, almost immediately, his productions were lauded by the likes of Fabio & Grooverider, and he was signed (under the alter-ego “Will.I.Ain’t”) to Twisted Individual’s Zombie label.
Progress has been fast since then. The Critical Impact name has been seen on a series of releases on some of the most respected imprints in Drum & Bass. Formation, Chronic, Metalheadz, Playaz, CIA, and Clear Skyz have all played host to his brand of deep, dark, dancefloor rollers.
After months of teasing with the singles ‘Pitch Black’, ‘MK Ultra’ and ‘Pretty Girl’, the fully fledged debut LP from Bristol’s Critical Impact drops on RUN on 6th December.
‘Sound Boy Killa’ is a no holds barred dance floor drilla of an album, that draws on a whole host of guests all underpinned by CI’s distinct bass weight production.
“I’m so happy to get this out there!! I’ve always loved working with vocals so wanted to make an LP that incorporated a lot of them but without compromising on the dance floor. We had a blast making it and hope people enjoy when these drop in the clubs!” Critical Impact 2019
