King Thing - Radiobeach / Different Spin
New release comes from KingThing, who brings you a mixture of 2step, breaks, dub, and techno. He is also co-founder of the Night Audio label, which pushes garage sounds and artists.

After the intro “Radiobeach” gets down to business quickly with 2step influenced beats and dark rumbling basses for a great jump up feeling. However, in the breakdown this tune turns into a hypnotic swinging bass orgy. Yeah, then we dropped it!
“Different Spin” starts off with a dubby riddim and moody elements, which prepare you for the breakdown with snippy beatbox action. The next drop combines a warbling bassline, techy synths and a hybrid breaks/4tothefloor beat. A tune that fits well into dubstep, breaks and techno sets.
Gella (Fat!): Radiobeach - this is great stuff, definately a player. Properly off the wall, love the really infectious swing on it. 4/5
Different Spin - nice moody vibes on the intro, like the FM sounds in there and the drop is quality. Deep and different, one for the late night crew. 4/5
A solid release, i'll certainly be looking out for this producer in the future.
Blackmass Plastics (Rag and Bone): Wicked release. Really like these tracks a lot, will def be playin em. Proper phuture 2step rave biznis.
DVNT (Mantis Radio): Sounding like some proper ruff stuff.
Dr. Schmidt (Maschinen Musik): I like Different Spin. Good sounds, great atmo, and groovy beats. It has many details and never becomes boring.
Jack Stat (Lucky Break): Cool release, especially Radiobeach is one awesome piece of crazy music.
DJ Ratling (BFM/dubplate.co.uk): I’m nodding more towards Different Spin. Definitely getting a play on my dubplates radio show.
