01. Mean Teeth feat. Kerizma MC – Gutterfunk [5:43]
02. Mean Teeth & Skylark – Hydra [5:19]
The Mean Teeth duo reigning from Estonia and Lithuania are a name making serious waves in the Drum & Bass scene, seeing recent releases on Renegade Hardware and Bad Taste to name a few. For this release they’ve teamed up with British Kerizma MC for Gutterfunk, and young French production prodigy Skylark for Hydra.
The first track up "Gutterfunk" backed up by the host from the UK’s South Coast ‘Kerizma MC’, sets the tone for the start of the single. Brighton’s own brings the fire on the vocals, whilst the collab smashes the airwaves with deep burly bass and hard-hitting drums; these guys really are firing a weapon. The break then takes you to another dimension, all while maintaining the dark vibe of this masterpiece, before taking you for another ride - lock, stock and two smoking barrels.
Next, "Hydra" brings it down a notch. More instrumental in vibe for your ear holes, expect pounding beats and slick shuffles. A driving groove grips you through the track, with menacing grunts as if a beast itself jumps out from the abyss. This one’s a true stomper and still certain to get the dancefloor moving.
Setting a precedence for the future, there’s no doubt that this combination of artists is a treat to hear, a landmark release for the label, and certainly one you should have in the collection.
