Backdraft - Rock the Mic / Pole Dancer

Check audio clips including both the VIP Instrumental mix of Rock the Mic at the official Passenger / 777 shop:

Taken from the forthcoming album ‘We Know Where You Live!’ The wait is nearly over. The original Labrat’s have been in their lair for the last 12 months working hard on their song writing skills and developing their sound, ready for the release of their debut longplayer released in November on Passenger.

Paul and Karrie have been an integral part of the breakbeat scene for the past 6 years. Supported by everyone from Meat Katie to Rennie Pilgrim, FreQ Nasty to Tayo, this Stockport duo are one of Passengers most successful bands with a loyal and avid fanbase. Whether they are fusing ragga vocals with electro wobbles, reggae blessed grooves with syncopated beats or just having a laugh, trying to melt the globes bass cones… one thing is always obvious, they do it in style and with passion.

On the first single from their album they have teamed up with Passenger’s own The Ragga Twins for what could well be one of their finest vocal outings to date! As with all of the Twins work, this has a catchy ‘call and response’ chorus and some straight up vocal anarchy that will twist around in your head long after you have returned from the club.

The flipside is true Backdraft madness… doing the rounds on dubplate for the past few months, this tune has a proven track record of ‘doin da biz’. Ladies and gentleman, strap yourself in and get ready for the next 3 months of super dope, straight up cold lamping, head bopping beats that are fresher than a 4 finger gold ring rocked with iron flat fat laces.

IDJ magazine review: Backdraft enlist perennial mic controllers Ragga Twins for a manic excursion on Aquasky¹s prolific imprint. A full assault of ragga breaks, goes for the jugular and is not something for the faint hearted to say the least. Energy packed and aimed at purely for the peaktime, if this is your thing you'll like this a lot!

DJ support: This is one of the strongest breaks releases we have put out on Passenger. Support coming from Annie Nightingale (Radio 1), Jay Cunning & Joe Ransom (Kiss FM), Crystal Method, Aquasky, Tayo, Beat Assassins Jimi Mofo, capoeira twins, Dan Rice, Leeroy Thornhill- Prodigy + more

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
