IN YA FACE (SECLUSIASIS)
Dev79 has been smacking it out for almost 10 years with an unparalled hunger for that fresh good and lo-freek vibe.
His numerous releases have dropped on labels like Slit Jockey and Dead Homies, and his ruckus DJ sets are famed for keeping dancefloors raw and sweaty with a unique blend of bassline, hip hop, grime, electro, and dubstep.
Along with The Mayor Of Starktown aka Starkey he invented the sonically-demented 'Street Bass Anthems' mix CD series, and his signature track 'In Ya Face' is often referred to as the first to fully identify Starkey & Dev79's patented Street Bass sound.
It's been doing serious club damage on dubplate for the longest times, getting spins on their Philly home turf and beyond from the likes of local big hitters AC Slater, Dirty South Joe and Sharkslayer for over a year now.
Finally hitting the streets on banging vinyl on Starkey's own Seclusiasis imprint, 'In Ya Face' is power packed with remixes from Edu K, Pharaoh & Peach (of Todosantos), Egyptrixx, and Willy Joy.
The original version of this xtra-heavy tune starts out with a throbbing and lurching rhythm to set the mood before the full on 4x4 dancefloor action kicks in with cut-up girl rapping the title hook.
Brazil's wildman producer, MC, DJ and Diplo-collaborator Edu K turns out a raved up jackin' house mix that breaks down into a crunked tempo switch.
Venezuelan Pharaoh drops a slab of dub weight on the people, with some help from his Todosantos band mate Peach on keyboards.
Thick synths and a nicely developed composition make this a standout, and definitely the cut the dubsteppah heads are getting hype for.
Finally, Toronto's up-and-coming producer Egyptrixx delivers a big electro re-work sure to keep the fists pumping and bodies gyrating.
