#HeavyRotation – Urge feat. Abdominal & DJ Robert Smith “Brainwashed”

Available now on Oonops Drops!

Buy the 7″ on Bandcamp.

German hardcore band URGE drops their fiery single release »Brainwashed«. After one year of work on this remix, Canadian rapper Abdominal who is known for his work with DJ Format is rhyming over a heavy Mo’Wax-esque beat produced by Smoove including lots of skilled cuts by Berlin based turntablist and DJ Robert Smith.

Together they built a deep-sounding monster of a tune. The 7inch which sits in a Japanese Katta round inner sleeve includes the original song as well as bonus Beats’n’Breaks for all the DJs.

Furthermore this release includes a hand-folded and hand-sleeved eco-printed poster for the black recycled version and a special riso-eco-printed high-quality poster (with vegetable inks) on the limited colored runs. There are 80 copies each of recycled red, light blue and dark blue transparent with color matching posters for sale on Bandcamp only. Total edition is 90 each (10 copies are reserved for the artists). All hand-numbered and hand-sleeved. When they’re gone, they’re gone.

The artwork of the poster is designed by Anton Van Volxem.

»Oonops Drops« is not a guitar-driven music label or specialized in hardcore or metal but it’s an openminded label which finds ways to fuse and work until it fits with many different genres.
