The eighth release on Get Some Records, sees Lancaster teen Llesca make his debut with ‘Sharks’, set for release in June and accompanied by four unique remixes. The track itself is centered around a repeatedly chopped vocal stab, bouncing off-­pitched claps in a frenzied intro and with the drop comes a distinctive sci-­fi riff, heavily synthesised and given space in the mix for maximum impact. The elements combine and evolve throughout, shuffling above swollen bass notes in an up­ to ­date fusion of 140BPM grime and garage.

Promising newcomer Neana veers furthest from the original, delivering a mutant techno cut that drops out of nowhere with rowdy, stop­in­your­tracks drums. Fans of Randomer and the like take note. Pedro 123, is quickly becoming one of the most sought ­after remixers in grime, so far lending his hand to the work of Starkey, Youngstar, Stuff, Slick Don, Lakosa & iO and Don’t Panic. His interpretation adds energetic drum rhythms and urgent, steely synths in his increasingly inimitable fashion.

London­ via ­Sheffield producer, Checan’s ‘2 Sugars Remix’ takes the original into bassline territory. It’s raw and upfront, filling in the gaps with a lively mid­range. Liminal Sounds boss Elsewhere goes the other way and strips it to typically sparse arrangement with trap­-esque cymbals and rolling 808s nodding to the recent output of ClekClekBoom amongst others.

Release Date: 17.06.2013
