About this item

Simply put by Machinedrum himself, "Gunshotta" is the theme for the "Gunshotta Ave." district of Vapor City. Filled with crime, paranoia and darkness, Gunshotta Ave is a street you don't want to walk down alone."

The "Gunshotta Ave. EP" opens with "Gunshotta", which combines rough junglist rhythms and ragga rap loop with a swampy acid bassline, enveloping pads and a soul-tinted vocal refrain. Remixes come from Fracture, who pushes the atmospherics and tightens up the breaks, dropping wicked compressed acid along the way. AMIT slows the pace right down for a proper dubwise version featuring melodica and organic percussion. Righteous! Lastly we get dancehall-junglist mash-up track "Stirrin" which dices up Barrington Levy's vox and drops the pieces over a thunderous bass rumble and break. This is an original track not featured on the album.
