The second the needle hits a Serial Killaz record you know it’s them. Rabble-rousing ragga vocals, bubbling bouncy bass, cut-throat beats, undiluted positive vibes: to have such a distinctive sound in today’s talent-packed game is a rare, rare asset. But with two careers that can be traced back to the earliest stages of rave, what do you expect?
Their back story has been told too many times: do a little research and you’ll find the names Tera and Vital Elements scrawled all over the scene’s history books. Now found scrawling Serial Killaz over the very same pages, the duo quickly established themselves as THE jungle and reggae legends’ remixers of choice since forming in 2005. From Cornell Cambell to Marvellous Cain, Wayne Marshall to Peter Bouncer, Damian Marley to Daddy Freddy, the Serial Killaz back catalogue is steeped in authenticity, joining the dots between classic soundsystem sizzlers, rave culture and the future.
