Release 05 on Renegade Screw (RS05) - Vandalene - Spamula EP

Vandalene - Spamula EP
Year: 2010

The first Vandalene release on Renegade Screw 'Spamula EP' showcases his unique take on house and techno music with drops of African thumb pianos, Steve Reich inspired repetition and a whole lot of gritty character.

Opening the EP is the Four Tet indebted 'Back On Track' with its pulsing house bassline and driving drums exploding into a melody of kalimbas to end the track. The next track is 'Four Kalimbas' with obvious reference to Reich, this is more ambient than the previous track whilst continuing the African vibe.

The dark 'Get Me Our Money' follows with its dubby vocal cuts and funky bassline changing the mood of the EP. The next track is the very slow moving, ambient 'Trains' which continues the dub feel with nods to Basic Channel and Aphex Twin’s ambient works.

The EP climaxes on the stand-out track 'Mephedrone' which is dowsed in darkness. A droning bassline accompanies paranoid piano sounds crackling within a ferocious minimal techno beat.

The second in the series of Screw Session mixes, this one is supplied completely by Soundcloud artists.

Containing some of last years best tracks along with 2 tracks from Koknoz's recently released PK2 EP.

Release 04 On Renegade Screw (RS04) - Phat Koknoz PK2 EP

Phat Koknoz - PK2 EP
Year: 2010


1.Ghost Boxer 06:18
2.Long Walk Home In The Dark 04:24
3.Bumfire 06:36
4.Homeless 05:14
5.Secrets 04:17
6.Enter The Darkness 04:48
7.When I Think About You 05:31

This new release from Phat Koknoz sees him explore Luxembourg's winter beauty whilst touching on it's cold capitalist heart. Tracks inspired by travels to dubstep nights in London (Long Walk In The Dark) and Brussels (Bumfire) also feature.

Highlights include the ambient Flying Lotus sounding 'Homeless' and the rampant bass pumping of 'Secrets'. Deep bass tones and ambient vocals pass through twitching yet punishing drumbeats with dubstep undergoing a revolution at a variety of different tempos. The EP ends with 'Enter The Darkness' and 'When I Think About You' almost entering DnB territory.

More upbeat than his previous release PK1, this hears Phat Koknoz consolidate his sound further yet introducing an altogether rougher edge. The whole EP flows into one with each track mixing seamlessly between one another. Unmixed tracks are available upon request.

Available for download in various formats including the usual high speed torrent link (mp3 320kbps) and now available in FLAC with additional booklet of artwork in exchange for email address. See links below.

Release 03 on Renegade Screw (RS03) - Blind Foley - Leith Mindstate EP

Blind Foley - Leith Mindstate EP
Year: 2010


1. Rain On Leith
2. Cordoba
3. Swell Box
4. Penguin Parade
5. Mmm Banana Flats I Love You
6. Kung-Fu Kick

The first Blind Foley release on Renegade Screw sees him doused in jazz and set alight in a fire of funk on an eclectic musical journey through Edinburgh's dark wet streets.

This journey makes its way through an incredible number of genres and influences ranging from the ambient yet majestic 'Rain on Leith', the DnB tinged 'Banana Flats...' and ending on the magnificent 'Kung-Fu Kick' which showcases the artists very special brand of minimal techno.

Whilst comparisons can be made to artists such as Four Tet and Mr Scruff, this EP still manages to retain a sound of it's own and would certainly not sound out of place on the Ninja Tunes label.

The tracks are available to stream on the new music player at the bottom of the page.
