Ratatosk's Tree EP
"Monkey Steak are producers Atki2 and Hanuman, from Bristol & London, respectively. Over the past few years they've consistently been pushing the boundaries of dubstep and future garage, with a string of releases on Werk Discs, Shadetek, Punch Drunk, Death$ucker, & Immerse, including Werk's legendary
series. Their first release for Sleazetone sees them taking things in a more bassline oriented direction, with 5 tracks of forward thinking 4x4 anthems informed by garridge & dubstep, with some Latin American/Carribean vibes thrown in the mix. 'Warpath,' 'Sexypumpy,' and 'Voodoo is Everywhere' are absolute stormers, heavy hitting bassline cuts with an abstract bent that will keep the experimental heads' attention. 'Veuve Edouard' is a throbbing bass monster baile funk meets dubstep production quality. Rounding out the pack, 'History!' is a fast moving soca-influenced dancefloor smasher with some absolutely sick sub bass."
STEAK HOUSE RECORDS (UK)
"The newly formed Steak House Records bring some much-needed carnival fire, their sights firmly on the Trinidad carnival season. Label owners Atki2 and Hanuman take the helm on this release, enlisting the vocal talents of MC Zulu on the EP's standout lead track 'Hyped Up'. The party continues on the flip, with the psychedelic funky of 'Haarlem Drift' and the Arabic folky heater 'Tigris Riddim', already a firm favourite with Toddla T. Mashing up global riddims and bass heavy genre bending ruffness, they incorporate sounds from bassline to bashment, grime to dubstep to funky to soca and back again!"
