ULTRAGORE #005: VARIOUS ARTISTS-SPIRIT ROAD E.P.
Ultragore Recordings is back with a who’ s who of talent for the SPIRIT ROAD EP. The bench runs deep
on this four track ep, trotting out some of the veteran players from earlier releases and bringing
some fresh talent into the fold. True to the style, label bosses Sluggo and Lank have been
pushing that tear-out murder business for some time now and this release is no different. Finally
stepping from behind the curtains, Borgore makes an appearance on the lead single, bringing a
little more star power to an already solid line-up.
On Borgore’ s remix of Spirit Road, Southwest desert rats Ultrablack, Sluggo, and Xian1 show
their true colors, grabbing an audio clip of a peyote trip from one of the 80’ s most memorable
Westerns flipping it in true Ultragore style. Metallic snare drums and short bursts of machine
gun bass are interwoven with a grinding drone, creating an intense, violent experience that will
leave listeners begging for more.
Not to be outdone, Los Angeles’ Bare let’ s ‘ em know how they do things in the 323 on Rocks.
West coast synths get the dubstep treatment as everybody’ s favorite Compton hustler gets
hassled by the Rampart patrol. Huge drops, rolling bass, and a well known narrator create a
monster of a tune that will have the kids begging for the rewind.
On Apeshit, Philadelphia based veteran mc Messinian teams up with the UK’ s Itchy Robot for
some vocal tear out madness. A distorted accapella intro drops to some heavy bass stabs, going
back and forth from half to double time and back and Messinian hypes the masses. Rough and
heavy, this one’ s sure to be a sing a long anthem for young rough necks on both sides of the
To round out the EP, F3tch and Sluggo drop the bizarre Burn It. Incorporating an old school
family pizza parlor organ ditty through the intro, things eventually make their way back to that
tear out murder bass we’ ve come to know from Sluggo. Muted videogame synth lines and dirty
bass will keep Ultragore fans happy, very happy.
ULTRAGORE #004: DECREE—SYNTHETIC COCKTAI L
New York dubstep producer Decree (aka Dylan Marcus) has been in the production game
since high school, producing drum and bass, dubstep, and even running his own label—all
before the age of 18. Today, he’ s gaining notoriety as a dub producer with heavy chops and a
tight production style. On his first single for Ultragore, Decree brings the heavy with Synthetic
Cocktail builds out of foreboding ambience into an abrupt drop where raw bass twists and grinds
over huge sub-bass reverberation. This sexy beast growls and purrs, riding the beat to summery
piano interludes and beyond where Decree breaks things down, taking the best of both worlds,
making their presence known, and then returning to the heavy bass in this twisting, turning dub
On the remix, Sluggo takes the aforementioned sexy dancer for a shift at the rave with
his Chuggo Sluggo Remix. A chopped up freight train wails down the tracks laid by
Sluggo’ s signature tear-out squelch bass. Think DJ Dan’ s Loose Caboose meets a strobe-lit
slaughterhouse. High energy tear-out with a warehouse twist, Sluggo makes a play for the big
room on this filthy rave dub.

ULTRAGORE #03: SLUGGO & BARE—SHY GUY
Ultragore Recordings is back with its third hard-hitting release, a collaboration between
Sluggo and Bare. Label boss Sluggo takes a trip across the desert to the surf and sand of sunny
California where Los Angeles’ Bare has been making major noise on the domestic dubstep
scene. With tunes recently landing in the sets of Dieselboy, Excision, Datsik and Trillbass and
with upcoming releases on Sub Human and Hollow Point, Bare’s been making an indelible mark
on US dubstep as of late.
On Shy Guy, Sluggo and Bare drop a chugging beast of a tune a in their first collabo together. A
pitched down pan flute warms things up to the drop where a heavy digital squelch evolves along
a bubbling bass line throughout. An aggressive top end and subdued bass create a versatile tune,
working as a bridge point between power cuts on the for the big room jock or something to pick
up the energy for your deeper minded DJ.
B-side has Bare going solo with Mmm Mmmm. This low-end burner has dances with elements of
skweee and hip hop, as 8-bit bleeps and battle wax sample stabs ride a tough mid-range grinder.
Everyone’s favorite beer spokesman stops in for a few minutes, signing off with exuberant
approval on Bare’s brand of dub.
