New EP out today through the recently re-launched label New Dawn Records.
’18 Showdown’ includes all the remixes produced by the legendary turntablist Krash Slaughta (DMC Finals / II Tone Committee) for the Belles in Monica crew which were originally released on 12″ vinyl with the addition of new cut “Venom”. All are now available to stream and download for the first time.
The DJ’s renowned production style fusing imaginative soundscapes, driving beats and immense scratch skills combine with storytelling rhymes and hard bars. From the fuel injected funk and cutting frenzy of “Meltdown”, to the sinister tension of “What D’Ya Need” and the sonic chaos of “Resistance is Futile”, the EP is a rare collection of artistically expressive and powerful hip hop immersed in a golden era just as a new decade comes in to view.
Krash Slaughta continues to release new material and perform live regularly. New Dawn Records will announce a new release schedule for 2020 by artists from the USA and UK shortly.
