Kosen Productions are back again with another killer release. And their return signifies that not only are they a hub for newcomers currently building their place within the scene, but they’re also a platform for artists who’ve already made themselves a name across the drum & bass world’s moodiest corners. Their first set of releases at the beginning of this year signified the importance of 2018 for the outlet. They have been determined to make their mark and every output so far has met a growing set of standards; standards which were already dizzyingly high. Their impact is felt this time through the cut-throat productions of Mean Teeth, a trio who have certainly created their own path and since introducing the drum & bass community to their music they’ve not looked back. Their reputation has grown and their electric live sets, alongside their explosive cuts, have ensured a path to notoriety. It’s one which was streamlined by an intimidating production that hasn’t gone unnoticed by the wider dance community.
Their forthcoming single ‘Stormer’ and ‘Evil’ presents an explosive A-side and a just as menacing reverse, showing the staples of Mean Teeth’s signature whilst also breathing fresh air into their back catalogue. ‘Stormer’ slices through with the upmost precision, becoming more and more heavyweight as the track progresses. The track’s fearless engineering is built layer after layer, before you are totally left powerless underneath its composition. Mean Teeth delivers a shocking blow and this is a trait they’ve become renowned for. It’s the perfect addition to Kosen Production’s already impenetrable set of releases and this is clear from the track’s first sixteen bars.
‘Evil’ on the other hand does exactly what it says on the tin. It groans into life amongst throbbing drums that act as a gear stick for the record’s first and most forceful breakdown. Every swathe of percussion take you deeper into its core before eventually you’re left to become fully enveloped by its collective power. Mean Teeth has provided a statement for Kosen Productions; considering its not even midway through the year, the label’s shown a hunger which is unmatched by many other independent labels.
