Shit Bangs / Language Barrier
Only one release in and Hashtag have already stamped
their authority on the D&B world. No surprise, when you
consider that this combo consists of Erb n Dub and KG,
already scene veterans in their own right. Tracks from their
debut release, the Hurt and Pain EP, have been blowing up
raves and radios worldwide. And now theyre back to prove
it wasnt a fluke.
First up, we have Shit Bangs. This plays by its own rules.
Its the sound of trap music being broken down and reintroduced to its UK dance music heritage.What results is a half-speed D&B workout that will quickly gain a rep as the one to draw for to
induce involuntary skanking.
And, just to remind you Hashtag have more than one trick up their sleeve, then we have Language
Barrier. This sneaks into your consciousness with filtered synths and a rolling beat before opening up into hands-in-the-air stabs. Emotive arpeggiated figures flicker into the scene to herald a drop that ravers wont be able to resist.
This is dancefloor manipulation material.With airplay on Kiss 109, Radio 1 and 1Xtra already achieved for this release, Hashtags music has quickly proved to be an essential part of all bass-conscious DJs sets.
