Patrol the Skies music has had some pretty serious releases this year. The Divided EP follows suit and some! HammerZz (formerly of Kryteria) out of FL, is making major waves in the north american dnb scene with some massive releases already this year on Icarus Audio and Onset Audio. Checkmate is one of the deeper cuts out of the 4 diverse tunes on the EP, bringing the sound of dnb back to the basics. It’s not flashy, it’s not commercial, its just f**kin groovy, make ya wanna get on down, Drum and Bass! This tune….well, the whole album will be a staple in many dnb dj’s playlists for this summer. Buy it now on Juno and Beatport.
