NC-17 / The Upbeats / Smooth & more - Including 5001 / 5002 / 5003

Recording info

NC-17 is a Drum & Bass duo of talented producers based in Toronto, Canada. Their namesake refers to the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) rating system which undertakes that a film rated NC-17 would be one based around violence, sex, aberrational behaviour, drug abuse or any other element that
most parents would consider too intense for viewing by their children. The groups love of film reflects not only in their name, but equally in their music, combining both deep and techy vibes with a cinematic edge that has resulted in releases on an eclectic set of labels such as
Charge Recordings, Viper, Renegade Hardware, All Sorts, Proximity, DSCI4, MAC II, SOM Music, Vampire, Big Riddim, and more.
NC-17 have now formed their own label, Grindhou5e Audio, which is set to feature tracks from artists such as The Upbeats, Smooth, State Of Mind, Mr. Explicit, Treo, Grimm and more. Set up as outlet for music with attitude, Grindhou5e represents one of the only Canadian drum & bass labels representing international artists around the globe. Featuring two remixes from DnB scene veterans, The Upbeats and shining star Smooth, the first release from Grindhou5e puts a new spin on NC-17's 2006 hit, 'Slug Path' - a tune that quickly squirmed its way into the sets of DJ's such as Andy C, Noisia, Ed Rush & Optical and DJ Hype upon its initial release.

NC-17 - 'Slug Path (The Upbeats Remix)'
A reworking from the legendary Upbeats, the first remix kicks things off with a bang. Featuring all the hallmarks of The Upbeats production, this track shows why the Kiwi duo are set to release a full-length album on Noisia's Vision record label later in the year. Combining all the atmosphere of the original with a relentless bassline, forceful drums and eerie synths, this gritty remix will be found in only the darkest raves.

NC-17 - 'Slug Path (Smooth Remix)'
The second reworking comes from Smooth, one of Viper Recordings brightest talents. Coming off his debut EP on Viper, the young Slovenian shows his prowess once again after recent remixes of Camo & Krooked and dubstep sensation Seven Lions. Full of adrenaline from the very beginning, Smooth transforms the morbid tones of the original into a dancefloor weapon, with soaring metallic synths clashing over an infectious drumstep beat. Definite rewind material here.
