Potential Badboy – VIP EP
With a long and rich history in dance music, from the early days of UK raves, right through to roadblock Playaz events at Fabric, that leave hordes of drum & bass fans queuing for hours, Potential Badboy can be counted among the longest serving soldiers around.
Having just unleashed an immense new single for DJ Hype & Pascal’s Ganja Records, Potential Badboy offers up something special for the digitally inclined. An exclusive digital only extended player packed with VIP versions of some of his most loved tracks in recent years.
First up 2005’s ‘Off Road’ gets the VIP treatment. The chunky, rolling breaks of the original are replaced with skipping swing beats that work perfectly with the familiar vocals from long time collaborator, Yush.
Potential Badboy takes things on a half-time tip for his reworking of ‘Girlz’, another track featuring vocals from Yush with the addition of MC Fats. Booming subs and dubbed out FX turn this into a seriously heavy alternative to the original.
Clattering jungle breaks and a stripped back vocal keep ‘Sun Is Shining Bright’ rolling along perfectly, offering some rolling respite for the dance floor. This one will have the girls bubbling in the rave.
Rounding the EP off is ‘I Choose You’ VIP. Starting off slow with soulful samples, it’s not long before the stepping drums pick up the pace. Sticking with his signature sound, this one rolls out effortlessly and smoothly and is sure to put some smiles on faces this summer.
