In German Schroff translates to all manner of words: rough, harsh, abrupt, sharp, curt and gruff to name but a few. Meanwhile in the tender tongue of dubstep, Schroff simply translates to badman producer.
Theres no better home for this London-based engineer, then, than the exciting bass-bulging imprint Demon Dub. Now 13 releases deep, their repertoire is scorched by white hot names of tomorrow such as Street Creeps, Rakta, 1point5 and Byterate. Adding to the labels demonic discography, Schroff follows up his recent chart success on Trap Sessions Volume 1 with this fiery five piece.
We screech into vision with Smoke Scream. A dramatic opener waftswith an eerie Halloween stank that builds and builds before were plunged into a pool of screaming bass terror via a cheeky banana smoking sample. Expect serious carnage as the screams grizzle with high end panache.
Then we ignite with Bring The Heat, a swaggering stepper that launches with a horn-hooting leap and a drop distinctive enough to warrant a million reloads.
Rebel Sound adds a whole new twist to proceedings thanks to a resplendent hook that puts the dub back into dubstep and a spitfire vocal hook from MC Killa Zorro. Head rocking, body shocking vibes abound as we dive from deep swing to a more sizzling bass flavour later in the track.
Up next is Bax Beats, a perky, party-minded piece that combines the dub bass techniques displayed in Rebel Sound and the more vibrant, sharp-edged sonics showcased on Bring The Heat. A prime-time skank joint, this cant fail on any bass-minded floor.
The grand finale Make It My Own sees Schroff buddy-up with previous vocal collaborator Loni Lincoln. Loaded with a tribal beat pattern and some serious sultry vocal demands, its yet another game changer from one of dubsteps most exciting new faces.
With DJ support from Rusko, Reid Speed, Pendulum/ Knife Party, The Prodigy, Bassnectar, Black Sun Empire, Schema, Drumsound, 601, Bare, The Qemists, Calvertron, Document One
