Great grooving dance floor tune with quality production all around from label boss and Korby. Vocals flow through this track like a symphony in an upbeat manner while the Amen drums grip the darkest regions of your soul.
Jera – Bullits Inna Fyah
Giving off a very 8bit gangster feeling over some older school lyrical styling, this tune is sure to keep bodies moving. A lot of attack and release in the production of the bass which gives listeners time to catch their breath from the beating they take in this .

Puff-puff and don't pass on this! Arch and Dainjah kill it on this tune with the entire production. The melody is sure to get stuck into your head for days. Great use of the Amens and a wicked sub bass to boot.
Vick Vega – Duppy Or Gunman

A dark and sinister track yet playful with its lyrics. Great tune for the late nighters and at a little over 7 minutes long perfect for teaser drops and overlays. This is definitely a fun song to get into.
CRS? – Time Bomb
CRS? back at it again showing us why he is one of LA's OG's with this gangster riddim. Dropping that west coast synth line over a bass for the true playaz, this is a track that is a must have in your arsenal.
