This their third dubstep release, after previous tracks on Bristol based Immerse and as their alter-ego Relocate, Zumo and Fantasmas is already getting props from key players Skream and Breakage, and is set to be a key release in 2009. Zumo kicks off the A side, a wailing banshee impregnated with a filter-bomb, rides atop a bulging sub and pulsing electro refrain which nags and rolls with hypnotic effect, a tell tale sign of the duos production style. Its not all about bangers! And these guys know how to develop a mood and pocket of rhythm up their with Digital Mystikz. Skream has been opening sets with this builder! Fantasmas on the flip is a bassbin destroyer! The phrase how low can you go should have originated from this track. A bouncing bassline that could have been stolen from a grotty jungle record dominates, accompanied by a haunting Mediterranean-infused vocal refrain.
