Shotty 4HF & Delirious (2010)
Shotty 4HF & Delirious, with “Rib Clutch”
After a long time out myself and delirious have finally linked up again. With some good results! I have personally been amazed by the likes of Noisia and Spor since around 2005 / 2006, first introduced to it thanks to UKBass Radio (DJ CJ), and a good friend of mine who produces and goes by the name of Ghost. It now seems that many DnB listeners are onto the tech / Neuro Funk styles of the Drum and Bass spectrum. So this is what we set out to chase with the next production. With some new techniques, re-sampling and recently purchased sample packs from Loop Masters and others, we’re nearly there with the first release of the new track. Still some work to do (02/07/15), and maybe next time the foundations will be a little different with focus on the sub bass levels and kick drum frequency combinations, but it is definitely on the right ‘tip’. It is an energetic, dirty bass sounding 172 bpm rolling groove. With typical horror movie sound effects and vocal pre-drops. And although I’ve been using techniques that are now becoming fairly familiar to me, DJ Delirious has definitely been influential throughout to the length, drop areas and atmospherics. With by far superior DJ and mixing skills than myself ‘D’ has been taking the track, queueing and mixing with the first drafts and feeding back essential analysis which has impacted heavily on the construct. Absolutely a co-produced audio track, with relatively simple production, making massive use of techniques including side chaining, limiting and output routing. It’s now at the stage (almost 4 weeks later meeting once or twice a week) to play close attention to detail, 1 more evening studio session should see it complete. Good effort. Will update here when complete, and the full track will be available from the home page. Also a DJ Delirious bio, gigs and bookings page to be added soon!

Shotty 4HF & Monique DLR
Shotty 4HF & Monique DLR! October 2015 latest track “Sayin Alright” featured on BBC Introducing with Dean Jackson and The Beat team! With some superb commentary! The track is ultimately a re-work of Monique’s original version “Sayin Alright” which was a 1 minute 20 second Ragga style high energy beat with what sounds like freestyle lyrics. As soon as Monique kindly sent the vocal track the rework came to life in less than a few hours! The entire track was produced over the course of a weekend and landed “as is” ready for listening. Absolutely superb project with catchy up-to-date urban lyrics! And to quote Dean Jackson @ BBC Introducing “One of the best yet!”. Hopefully Monique and I will be releasing more music together soon, as she is currently writing to a track specifically designed for her to work with. The track “Sayin Alright” is now available to download from the Beat Store! The download available is the original unedited rework, and a radio edit was produced for play on BBC Introducing which all being well should be available from other well known online music stores in the coming months! Good effort! Be sure to check out other work from Monique DLR:
