"Ox Rider Records follow up the success of their first two releases with another scorching double A-side from label boss, DJ and producer Whistla. This release sees Whistla launching a swing offensive on a dubstep scene crowded by too much bland wobble-bass and not enough ideas. It's summer, dammit, and the people want to dance. 'Merkaba' takes us on a trippy journey through the heady days of garage. Vocal samples from a bizarre instructional tape -- 'deep breaths in, deep breaths out... feeling blissful' -- sit on top of addictive stabs of bass and drums that make you want to lay back in the sun for days on end. The skippy summer vibes go into overdrive on the flip with the hugely anthemic 'Sunlit.' From the outset, the tune is awash with lush old skool keyboard hooks, making it a nostalgic, sun-drenched number. But this ain't no chill-out track: thanks to Whistla's incredible ear for irresistible 2step drums, this is definitely one for the dance floor. Whistla is bringing back the swing, and with 'Merkaba' and 'Sunlit' about to tear up the summer, you need to get this plate in your bag before it's too late!"
