Heist – “Genestealer”


If you love drum & bass but aren’t up on Heist, you might need to turn in your junglist card. Dude’s been grinding for a while, doing everything from winning over legends like Bryan Gee with his mastery of dnb production to doing engineering work for the mighty Goldie. He runs a few labels, and during the Fabio & Grooverider days on BBC Radio 1, you could ALWAYS hear Groove rinsing some new Heist bits.

To celebrate hitting 15K likes on his Facebook page, Heist dropped a textbook dancefloor masher for free. “Genestealer” contains everything that makes a proper Heist banger, from a memorable vocal sample that doubles as the title of the tune to the disgusting bass to the hypnotic elements he throws over top. This is one of those tunes that a DJ might drop mid-set, once the ravers are at a fever-pitch, totally sending them over the cliff. Rewind it if you need to.
