SQUALID SQUAD is a DJ/Producer duo from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. These two always keepin’ the club bouncing as their 4 Deck Live Mixes prove to be what the crowd craves. These two have played alongside artists such as Zeds Dead, DJ Marky, Stagga, Ashburner, DZ, Cookie Monsta, Roksonix, Nero, Borgore, Downlink, Vaski & Flux Pavillion.
With CBZ on the forefront they began producing music through Ableton Live. Just under a year of producing and their music is supported by artists such as, Bryzergold, DJ SnipaZ, Ashburner & Juggernaut to name a few. A VIP of the infamous Requake – Waterdrops, and a more recent remix of DJ SnipaZ – Gloworm have also gained the Squalid Squad considerable attention. With a few releases already lined up for 2012 expect it to be a big year for SQSQ. They show absolutely no sign of slowing down anytime soon and say “We are coming harder than a virgin this year. We love ya.”

This EP was released yesterday exclusively to Beatport. It features two tacks, “I’m Really Hot(original mix)” and “Helicopter High (Original Mix)”. Both tracks are full of energy, bass, and everything else that makes dubstep great.

The first track and the EP’s name sake, “I’m Really Hot” kept my head bobbing the whole time i was listening and it is definitely a song i am gonna keep around for a while. However, the drop doesn’t stand out as much as I usually prefer when listening to dubstep.

The second track “Helicopter High”, had an awesomely filthy and modulated bass line. The drop had a lot of distortion and as always with SQUALID SQUAD I was in love with the lyrics. I can already see the great remixes that will become of this and I honestly can not wait.

Overall, it is a great EP, though it leaves me wanting so much more.This will definitely hold me off until their next release.
