Having spent much of the past two years orchestrating stadium-sized crowds to lose their marbles whilst touring the world as the lead support for The Prodigy and Pendulum, South Central are now back on home soil and readying themselves for the release of their much-anticipated debut LP Society Of The Spectacle. Having given the world its first taster in October 2010 with their single ‘Demons’, the duo now present ‘The Day I Die’, the lead single from the forthcoming album and another indication that this is an act destined for big things.
‘The Day I Die' only underlines this as Rob and Keith laugh in the face of genres; successfully merging the rib-cage-shaking bass-wobble of dubstep with euphoric trance stabs, tough breaks and as close to a pop vocal hook that b>South Central have ever sung. It’s unsurprising that this has already become a real fan favourite. This is South Central’s closest moment to a crossover single so far and with a video to die for(!)(Check it out below) and a heavy hitting remix package from The Toxic Avenger, Rhythm Masters, Qemists, Baxen and a rare rework from The Prodigy (the only other recent remix by them was for Jay-Z!), it makes it all the more juicier.
