Hocus Pocus are now proud to present their 15th release, & first of 2016 in the form of two rough & rolling club smashers… The 15th release on Hocus Pocus see’s label chiefs Dawn Raid step up to the plate. Dawn Raid’s sound could best be described as real throwback/future rolling jungle/dnb, blended with a myriad of musical influences which serve to fashion the formula of their tracks! This release embraces those influences to the fullest.
A – Booby Traps
‘Booby Traps’ is a real no holds barred roller that combines all of the elements you would expect Dawn Raid to call upon when laying the beats & bass down for Hocus Pocus! Building with snappy off kilter beats, a piercing flute sample & cartoon vox. You will be hypnotised by the step out nature of the intro as it breaks down in to the vox crescendo!! Then out of nowhere a deep rolling bass drags the listener hook, line & sinker into the track! Deep booming basses combine with rolling beats to keep your senses & internal organs resonating at full throttle whilst the track rolls out in a big way! Quality!
AA – Amnesia
‘Amnesia’ is more of an elevating jungle track that gives a heavy nod to the amnesia house second summer of love raving heyday of the late 1980’s. Building in a very unassuming way ‘Amnesia’ injects a pure uplifting vibe to the riddim as the intro skips along! Deep soundscape like pads build the anticipation for the drop! Upon the drop, quality Dawn Raid production from a classic bygone Balearic era take the track naturally where it needs to go! Into the jungle with absolutely no compromise. Bad!
