"When Skream came up with his 'Lets Get Ravey' version of La Roux's 'In For The Kill,' he was inspired by the sound of early '80s rave days, and for his first contribution to Shy FX's Digital Soundboy label, the Croydon producer takes his homage further into jungle territory. 'Burnin Up' has got it all: female vocal sample, mid tempo amen breaks, booming bassline all combined to perfection, with an awesome switch half way. Skream has lovingly updated the exhilarating sound of early jungle to stunning results. If 'Burnin Up' is a tribute to jungle's debut, 'Memories of 3rd Base' is all about the birth of dubstep. A highly potent minimalist groove with technoid blips and mutating sub bass, it pays tribute to the club that shaped the scene in the mid '00s. With artists like Benny Page and Breakage constantly producing genre defying music, and high flying contributions by Caspa and Skream, DSB offers a unique insight into the incredible talent of the UK Urban scene."
