Image: 1585626 It's long overdue but we are happy to announce the return of MC Jakes to the microphone. An MC who's unmistakable voice and unique style set the scene on fire back in 2006 with the smash hit "Deep".

Now back on DJ Die’s drum & bass juggernaut "Clearskyz" we see him team up with Critical Impact to produce one of the coolest slices of low-slung fun you’re likely to hear this year. Clearskyz no.12 sees the second release on the label by local Bristol boy Critical Impact. Already a massive part of Friction’s BBC Radio 1 show, this looks set to propel the new kid on the block firmly into the limelight.

Hold on to your peaks as ‘The Illa’ drifts in like the red mist, all horror pads and a crisp break pave the way for this rudeboy roller before the trademark vocal flow of Jakes takes control. Dirty, seething bass pierces the mix as some of the dopest lyrics fly over the top for this club system banger, that manages to straddle the heavy dance floor divide whilst keeping things a little left of centre. A sick, sick tune!

Things then get steamy on the flip as Critical Impact lightens the mood for a snappy liquid groove. ‘Specialise In Love’ is a fizzing, lush affair with a gorgeous vocal that cuts through the minimal arrangement of smooth chords and delicate guitar riff. One for all the late night dance floors out there, if Swerve was still going this would be its anthem of 2013. Available from 11.11.2013
