Fresh from a string of releases on Monarch Records, drum&bass producer Mark Bionic comes correct for his debut on Inna Riddim with a pair of precision cuts. On the intro to the A side, 'Rancid Roller (What Matters)', it's all eerie pads and Weltanschauung as a sampled voiceover probes the big questions and builds up some serious gravitas. But then a buzzing lead cuts through the introspection like a circular saw, and the track title's promise is delivered with a rolling breakbeat accompanied by tight drum-rolls and the flare-ups of a tortured synth. Mark sustains the energy onto the flip, 'Hijack' with a stepping beat and growly bassline setting the scene for Slice MC's lyrical paean to pirate radio culture; half-time breakdowns and dubwise FX give the track a faintly nostalgic twist. Two hefty tracks make one rock-solid release.

Track Name: Hijack ft. Slice MC
hijack…transmit... frequency and sound
calling to the soldiers info to the battleground
hijack…transmit... spread from underground
musical offenders so the darkness gets around

All aboard the pirates greater London airplay
navigating sounds that flows like water on the airwaves
locked in to the station shouts were calling cards of fame
tower blocks as galleons they’re firing dubplates

reaching outer limits as the stars mapped the way
vinyl circling for hours on a magnetic plate
canon sound till rising sun with lots of replays
the number one flotilla was the kool with a k

Still reach the people but the setup has changed
straight from the clouds no climbing roofs in the rain
satellites now overshadow antennas reign, so please
don’t touch that dial you’re clicking buttons to play

Locked into the Rinse unless the buffer delays
podcast always handy you can catch up that way
listening at home or out in rugged terrain
Streaming round the world no matter which part you claim

Sailing forward till the caller shouts for rewind
waving swords like lighters as they flash in the night
overboard the captain kills the frequencies with vibe
pull the track back and play it one more time

Claiming outer posts invading turf infect the host
surfing airbourne waves the dials glow from coast to coast
message in this bottle holds a scripture full of flows
apartment blocks are triggers for the bill to rip down poles
