The next chapter in the Pressed Records discography is delivered with the unique sound design of Belgian based producer and dubstep purveyor BunZer0 featuring his hard hitting tune “King Lion”, coupled with a forceful remix from Bristolian grime / dubstep forerunner Kahn.
BunZer0’s original mix of “King Lion” begins with a spacey intro, subtley building percussively into a broken pattern. Beneath BunZer0’s intelligent construction of drum work resides a heavy undertone of sub bassline. Punchy, militant kick drums stagger with force, sure to deliver crushing bassweight on a sound system. “King Lion” progresses steadily, growing off the minimalistic drum work, with elements of dub shining through with BunZer0’s use of reverbs and delays. This uniquely crafted tune is sure to catch many ears on sound systems around the globe.
On the flip, Kahn’s version of “King Lion” wastes no time in pushing the listener right into the chaotic presence of those stabbing kick drums. Swooping granulated mid ranges swoop across the rolling kicks while Kahn’s useage of the vocal samples are well suited within the progression of his remix. The militant vibe created from his drums brings together a solid perpetual energy that is best suited for a large sound system. Paying homage to the roots of dub, both versions are slick rollers, all-be-it broken, but very unique in design.
