Badman Near Dark

A 4 track dubstep single (22m 20s) — released September 9th 2008 on Combat Recordings
South London beatsmith Dylan Richards aka. King Cannibal's tracks have been punishing soundsystems and causing structural damage around London for some time now. His unique take on dancehall bashment infuses it's infectious, brutal body-juddering riddims with the ferocious drum programming and dissonant, high-tech filth of late 90's jungle. Big things are happening for The Cannibal this year, having been recently signed to Ninja Tune, and with DJ support from right across the board and a load of gigs lined up. Expect a load of amazingly ferocious tracks that no labels have dared to release… until now. "You should know what to expect from Combat nowadays; hard-as-nails beats, apocalyptic bass, terrorising soundscapes, yet always balanced with a degree of sophistication. This is no different, with King Cannibal unleashing mutant dancehall-core in the shape of 'Near Dark'. Of most interest to the 140bpm-fans will be the remixes – Stormfield stutterers the drums and muddies the bass, whereas HENCHman Komonazmuk sharpens his tools and introduces spiky drums, war-machine bass and wraith-like synths. Scary stuff." - DJ ThinKing, iDJ Magazine "I liked the Komonazmuk mix best. Will give it a spin." - Surgeon (Downwards Recordings) "The Stormfield mix is awesome :) " - Strictly Kev DJ Food (Ninja Tune)
