It’s currently (at the time of writing) up to number 18 in the Itunes Electronic chart, so lets try get it even higher!
Extra Curricular have been pushing their unique brand of soul-driven music on the UK underground live circuit since early 2009 and now serve up a new EP Wont Stay Down on Doorly’s Pigeon Hole this label with help from the boss himself.
The group combine soul with elements of rock, hip hop, and modern bass culture and are fronted by Thabo, with a live horn section, electric guitar, bass and drums all coming together in mesmerising live jams with boundless amounts of energy all supported by BBC 6Music, 1Xtra and more.
As well as an acapella version, the lead single by EC and Doorly is a dancefloor aligned version of the original that shines bright and kicks hard somewhere between jungle and dubstep. It’s a maximalist sound with rave inducing drums and classic rock rap vocals that will surely blow up on release.
‘Wont Stay Down’ the original grows out of raw guitar notes, swelling synth sounds and a fizzing electronics before an emotive voice sings about the troubles of being knocked down and bouncing back again. It’s a dense network of dubstep energy, live horns and saw tooth synths that combines the best of rock noise with bass energy.
