Kaiju – Justice / Creeper - FKOF Review

Kaiju – Justice / Creeper

FKOF Review

With a number of best-selling (and sold out) releases already in the hands of the dubstep faithful, the monstrous duo – and, yes, our good friends – hailing from Bristol town today announced the first chapter in their DEEP MEDi story.

Kaiju’s long-awaited, inaugural release on Mala‘s revered imprint marks the start of a exclusive relationship – the only one we’re aware of in the label’s existence…

Kaiju - MEDi086

In their first outing since 2013’s appearances on Osiris Music UK and Ruffcut, the Bristolian duo have launched what will undoubtedly be another invaluable edition to the vinyl collector’s war chest. Although Kaiju and DEEP MEdi announced MEDi086 with little fanfair, as seems customary with Kaiju releases, the pre-order sold out in a matter of hours – a clear indication of the hunger for the volume of unreleased Kaiju material…

The FKOF review

Justice opens up with haunting flutes, floating synths and crisp percussion. Collectively, these relatively simple elements combine to form one of the most contagious melodies in the DEEP MEDi catalogue. Each element in Justice carries the authentic flavours of dub – marking the sound with red, yellow and green. The drop announces Kaiju’s unparalleled expert crafting of subsonic vibrations; with a sultry and swinging low end that’s put the best bassbins across the world to the test. The weight coming off Justice‘s sub is of untold magnitude, welcoming smokey vibes and lighters sparking up on high.

“A fully dreaded second drop makes us trust in Justice, an A-side that reveals another flawless expeditions through rhythm and system sound.”

“The flipside is a Medusa-esque monster, one that has been lurking in the dark and hiding under the bed since Kaiju’s legendary appearance on Youngsta’s Rinse FM show alongside Toast and the mighty Flowdan. Creeper is one of the darker dubs to plunder the depths, reminiscing with its old-fashioned graveyard-style growls and sonic booms. The bitter taste of its mids blurs reality, while the right momentum of overshadowed elements and straight-edged rhythmic percussion makes this a characteristic Kaiju production.

“This release is just the beginning of Kaiju’s odyssey on DEEP MEDi MUSIK – two very different productions that together document’s the duo’s sonic abilities. And while it’s been two years since their last release, we’ve got it on good authority there’s lots more coming from the monsters…”
