Scattermusic unleashes it’s 15th official release, a heavy-hitting bashment tune better known as ‘War Dance’ by London’s: Heatwave and Serocee. You may have heard this track already, ideally outdoors, in the sun and directly in front of a very large stack but despite becoming a staple of dancehall and bashment sets worldwide, War Dance was never officially released. Now Scattermusic and The Heatwave are working together to make amends, not only by properly releasing this certified heater, but also packing the single with some brand new remixes. First up Mat Cant trades the outdoor carnival vibes of the original for a heavier, basement ready workout. Sharkslayer & Top Billin then up the tempo while skillfully lacing the unruly vocals over a winding bassline and some expert synth chords. Thirdly Voltergeist, the winner of Scattermusic’s ‘Heatwave remix’ competition flips the mood completely for a dubbed out housey take.
'“War Dance” is a super hype slice of bashment energy that’s destined to be a dancehall anthem. The singalong whoops of the chorus and Serocee’s killer ragga flow make for an unstoppable combination.' - Discobelle.net
