The clue's in the title with this one: jazzy, soulful liquid vibes these are not!
If you like your D&B on the harder side, then we've got a treat for you today in the form of this free download from Beat Assassins.
For anyone that doesn't know, Beat Assassins started out as the duo of Jimmy Mofo and Joe Lenzie AKA Wooz, putting out a string of breakbeat releases throughout the late 00s, mostly on Mofo Recordings. The two went their separate ways amicably in 2010, but in the past year or so Jimmy's revitalised the Beat Assassins moniker for his solo D&B productions.
Solo D&B productions such as the gnarly offering below, about which the hype sheet says: "The third release of 2016 sees Beat Assassins get right back to basics. No featured vocalists, no remixes and no gimmicks, just a straight-up banger aimed directly at creating hedonistic dance floor behaviour. Drop It Hard delivers full-throttle bass, electro laser synths, big strings and epic cinematic pads, all gagging to get played on the big rigs."
Are they right? See what you think...
