• adam f & horx feat. redman Shut the Lights Off (12" pic disc, £6.50)

    label: breakbeat kaos

    It’s amazing to think it was back in 2001 when Adam F released his flawless ‘KAOS: The Anti-Acoustic Warfare’ album that converted him overnight from UK Drum’n‘Bass/Jungle pioneer into one of the most in-demand Hip Hop producers of his time. That album featured heavyweight vocals from the likes of LL Cool J, Beenie Man, M.O.P, Pharoahe Monch, Guru, De La Soul and Redman, who featured on the now classic ‘Smash Sumthin’ single that went top 5 in the UK charts and gained Adam global fame as one of the most exciting names in Hip Hop. Having stepped out of the limelight in recent years to focus on building his powerhouse Breakbeat Kaos label, which has enjoyed massive success with Pendulum’s platinum selling album ‘Hold Your Colour’, Adam is now back with the new move… A key component in Adam’s return with Redman is long-term friend Nick Halkes (aka Horx), the man who launched both XL Recordings and Positiva, signing and most recently A&Ring The Prodigy's million selling return to form ‘Invaders Must Die’, an album on which he enjoys a co-write on the title track and a project which has given him the opportunity to DJ in support of the band at multiple arena dates earlier this year. When both Adam and Nick started out it was simply “the buzz” of making and releasing music that excited them and it’s this back-to-basics attitude that’s so important to this project. Off the back of their recent remix of The Prodigy’s ‘Take Me To The Hospital’ single, which received plays from Annie Mac and Rob Da Bank at Radio 1, Adam F & Horx now present ‘Shut The Lights Off’. Having united with Redman in Amsterdam to record the vocals the tone was set and with Redman fully on-board to record an album and take it on the road as a live act, it couldn’t be a more exciting prospect for next summer. In fact it was Redman (currently touring with Method Man for their latest Blackout 2 album) who said that in 2010 he wants to “get away from the big U.S arenas and get into some dark festival tents with lasers!” With ‘Shut The Lights Off’ likely to cement itself into DJ’s boxes for many months to come and sounding like a huge festival anthem for 2010, Redman’s wish will undoubtedly come true. It’s the start of something very BIG for all involved and as a straight up party starting smash – it couldn’t be much bigger than this. Get ready people, Adam F and Redman are back – blow your horns! Look out for more news on next year’s album and a remix from Caspa very soon. ADAM EAZY & FUNK DOC BACK WITH THE NEW MOVE!
