Impulse is Berlin's weekly Dubstep party presented by various crews within the scene. This week presented by re.titled.
Ninja Tune artist King Cannibal wasnâ€™t always as beastly as youâ€™d think. Dylan Richards a.k.a. â€œNinjaâ€™s first (and only?) hard manâ€ has a snaked history, rubbing shoulders with personal heroes and all of it preemptively flagged for greatness by numerous taste-makers publications, based on his trilogy of under-the-counter mix CDs recorded under this former name - â€˜ZILLAâ€™
Comprised of hundreds of tracks, these hand-sprayed CDs sold out in days and earned high praise on a global scale, so much so that Warp Records took note and invited â€˜ZILLAâ€™ along with DJ partner Buddy Peace to compile a retrospective of the label. Released late September 2004 as part of the 'WARP VISION The Videos' DVD, the mix entitled 'Watch And Repeat Play' was a startlingly original tour-de-force, over 70 minutes the two DJs reworking and rewiring the label's back catalogue, twisting the already twisted into sonic maelstrom.
Richards began exploring solo production, perfecting an industrial take on dancehall, dubstep & drum n bass with a number of well-received, increasingly darker remixes. The Eureka moment, â€˜Aragami Styleâ€™, came to be in 2006, and with it a new alias was born. â€œWhilst 'ZILLA' sleeps at the bottom of the Pacific KING CANNIBAL IS KING OF THE DANCEHALLâ€.
Falling in to the hands of the legendary Amon Tobin, â€˜Aragami Styleâ€™ took pride of place as the secret weapon King Cannibalâ€™s sets, destroying dancefloors for years whilst Radio 1 DJ Mary Anne Hobbs championed the track giving it heavy rotation and inviting King Cannibal to prepare for her Experimental show an hour-long soundclash with proto-dubstep producer Scorn.
