Ayo – Single

Critical Music

Next up on the Critical Music Modulations imprint comes a showcase from one of the most talked about names in UK hybrid bass music right now. Heavily supported by the likes of Kasra, Shy FX, dBridge, Mark Pritchard, Rockwell, DJ Die and many more, Sam Binga talks us through this dance floor fire release in his own words…

“I guess the main idea behind AYO! was to make something crunchy and lo-fi, but still heavy enough for the floor. I think I was listening to a lot of Timbaland beats around the time I built this one – I have always loved the massive kicks and weird squashy snares he uses, so I wanted to try something along those lines at DnB speed. The rest seemed to flow quite organically and Redders brought his usual charisma and animation to the vocal. Like the man says, everyone knows he mashes up the show…

Freezy is a bit more straightforward – something like a tribute to classic bouncing-subs jungle, but with added southern crunk vibes and a chunky halfstep beat. If I remember rightly, there is a gun being cocked over each snare, and I brought the hardware sampler out to get the pads and synths sounding suitably 1995.” Sam Binga
