Debut Transmission: Karma – Saturation Point
Shogun Audio has long been home to many of the modern titans of drum & bass; Icicle, Rockwell, Alix Perez… the list goes on. But head honcho, Ed Friction, isn’t one to sit back and rest on his laurels – particularly now he’s the public face of the genre over on BBC Radio 1 – he’s always keeping an ear to the ground, hunting for the next heavyweights.
Hence comes Point Of Origin Vol. 1, a brand new Shogun compilation celebrating the heroes of tomorrow, such as Paul SG, Safire and Posij, and a few of today’s top dogs, like Nickbee, Zero-T and DT favourite, Need For Mirrors.
The album offers a varied selection of styles, but sat firmly at the ten-tonne tech end of the spectrum is Karma (who is also the only producer to land two tracks on the release). A stone cold stepper built around twisted, retching sonics, ‘Saturation Point’ will undoubtedly cause absolute turmoil on the floor. We smell a Shogun Warrior in the making!
