Doomsday – Turn Up (Internal Frequency Remix) (NWSC011) [HNYBSS Premiere]

We’ve got a special one to check out today as I have the pleasure of presenting a fresh track from NWSide Connect‘s first vinyl release! The US label has impressed over the last couple of years by curating a catalogue of 140 material that I can only describe as ruthless. Hosting new talent from the likes of MAC to Doomsday, it’s developed a very recognisable sound and now, after ten unmissable instalments, the NWSide gang curates it’s first physical record in the only way they know how – with five dangerous nose bleeders! All five tracks come in the form of heavyweight remixes from their fully loaded roster and today I’m happy to present the Internal Frequency‘s remix of ‘Turn Up‘, originally from the mind of Doomsday.

Bodie‘s ‘Camp Blood’ is one of my favourite tunes to come from NWSide Connect‘s growing catalogue so to see a MAC remix on here, my mouth was watering at an instant! The label mainstay dials up the pressure with opening dystopic drones – huge and all compassing before the grittiest sliding synths come in like Leatherface and his chainsaw, ripping the track to shreds in the best way possible. The already filthy ‘Illusion‘ by Subclever gets filled to the brim of the bass bin with the nastiest lingering reese bass to be squeezed out of your subs, courtesy of Uncommon Sense. And that comes alongside his interesting take on the original eerie melodies and the wonkiest of wonky LFO manoeuvres. Flying the flag for the UK, Birmingham’s Jamzigg returns to the label for his take on MAC’s ‘Ruff N Tuff‘, taken from the label’s inaugral release. The track name is a succinct description of both producers’ growing sound, however this production is a little different to what we are used to from Jamzigg; a little more stripped back, a little more sharper and controlled, but still possessing all of the face punching sub-low power that Jamzigg regularly attack us with. Uncommon Sense gets a second feature on the record but this time it’s his track ‘Checked Out‘ getting the darkest of remixes by SHVPE SHIFTER. For me, it’s the meanest cut on here. A remix that snarls at you throughout, carrying those cold tones and clean, perfectly mixed percussion – an element that shines throughout this record.
Doomsday‘s huge ‘Turn Up’ from NWSC004 is given a feverish remix by Internal Frequency, which concludes this heavyweight set. The Canadian takes the apocalyptic sounds of the OG, slices it up like a fat sirloin steak and throws it onto the plate with all the juices. Through Internal Frequency‘s pounding restructuring, ‘Turn Up‘ is transformed into the epitome of a dancefloor heater, ready to crumble the walls of the club and shift the shoulders of the dance.

It was never in doubt that NWSide Connect could come up with a no skips record for their first physical piece. The all remix affair is a thoroughly affective concept, not only does it remind us what the label and it’s roster has already accomplished but also what’s still to come.

The Remixes Vol. 1‘ is out now on vinyl and digital from the NWSide Connect Bandcamp.
