Enter the Portal: Zombie Cats

Major League DNB hits a homer!

Major League is a heavyweight in the party scene of the Netherlands. Their events are true to Drum & Bass and have brought amazing acts such as Pendulum, The Upbeats, Ed Rush, John B, and many many more. The promoters have now come through with a record label that will showcase the quality of sound the events will have.

On their listing is this amazing release featuring one of our favorite producer duos, Zombie Cats. They bring on Safra with their track Portal that is absolutely smashing. The drop is AMAZING. The wide, unisoned, pitched up bass just brings you in and through the wave of craziness the switch drops into sick neurofunk. Deep and cerebral baselines, acid style synth blips in the back, and super tight drums. Who could ask for more?! But then they give us more!!!!!!! Oh my good ness, the Joe Ford remix… Lets let the track do the talking:

From the label:

Drum & Bass nightlife operation turned label, ”Major League DNB” offers their third outing in a string of thoroughly curated releases. This time around international twosome ”Zombie Cats” make their re-appearance on the Holland based imprint. The 3rd installment (MLDNB003) in the label series opens up with a rework of ”Portal” by household ”Shogun Audio” name ”Joe Ford”. The opening track is a somewhat brutal effort that showcases ”Joe Ford’s” signature high energy approach whilst cleverly re-assembling the main elements of the original. The original version of ”Portal” kicks in straight after the rework. The title track of the EP is actually a collaboration between Zombie Cats and Berlin Based ”Safra”. Whilst the rework is somewhat of a frenzy, the original effort proves to be a little more on the technoid side of things.”Little Monsters” is not only the closing down track but also a bonafide dancefloor destroyer.
