1. Hey! – Dub Elements 4:07
2. Like This – Dub Elements 3:43
Although it’s not just in the studio that Dub Elements have made a name for themselves. Their exclusive events brand has also brought some of the most sought after names to their hometown. Their ‘Dub Elements & Friends’ nights have given a pedestal for forthcoming releases on DEM Recordings and this next single from the pair demonstrates why their DJ sets have become notorious. Whether it’s playing alongside the likes of Cypress Hill, Justice, Orbital or Gorillaz, whilst detonating their sonic artillery across the global circuit, including SPACE Ibiza and the iconic UK festival Creamfields, they’ve caused widespread devastation. These two records will wield the same power.
‘Hey!’ powers you through an intro of crackling bass, shaking sub patterns and clattering drums, with its ragga-like sample presenting a call-to-arms against the mix. It’s an anthem, one which slams its way into a DJ set and fully commands any space it’s dropped within. Dub Elements go full throttle on ‘Hey!’, nodding to the unique power of running an independent platform like DEM Recordings. ‘Like This’ is more minimal in its roll out, with its percussion zig-zagging throughout the mix as you become acutely aware of the pair’s incredible production standard. Once again, Dub Elements go for the jugular, although the weapon this time is their expertly crafted, low lying bassline. It’s an explosive package and both tracks push a sound which is inherently Dub Elements. They channel the party vibes which make their own nights so unforgettable
