Killer hardcore beats from DJ SS and EQ‘s alter ego Darkman from a couple of decades ago, 1992 to be precise.
The standard formula is there: bouncing 4-4 beats, pitched up vocals (the same as used on Rufige Kru’s immense “Believe“) and the inevitable piano lick but this is more than just your average stomper.
Taken from a time when DJ SS’s long standing label Formation could do little wrong, String of Darkness is a perfect slice of early 90s old skool.
The rest of the As Dark As It Gets EP is well worth a look as well, but this was always the stand out track for me.
