Specops has made a strong debut with there first three releases. I am excited to hear what they rinse out in the future. In the Meantime check out what they have out now

DJ Harp - Gran Torino
DJ Harp - Jakes Bit

Gran Torino - Made me feel like I was in a 40's gangster movie. I'm trapped in a secret room in a big house on a hill. There is a sample in this tune that sounds like somebody tapping Morse code on a metal door. Dark, Deep, the soundscape to a gangster movie from hell.

Jakes Bit - Started out like dubstep then moved into a more bass heavy minimal groove. Very tech. The Grungy Bass still screams DUBSTEP! and makes you want to pump your mean fist!


DJ Harp - Twin Peakz
DJ Harp & Ryze+Fall - Rap as a Weapon

Twin Peakz - This tune runs! The first part of the bar brings me back to the raves of the early 90's while the second part of the bar snaps me back into the present with that very familiar half-stepped snare, and half stepped breaks. Then the bassline slams you in the chest. Dubstep is a very distinctive 21st century sound. Again with the pumping of mean fists!

Rap as a Weapon - Very Smooth. I like the dark undertones on this one. It is still dancy but has a very dark message intertwined and gives off some bleak vibes.
Solid releases!
