Following their recent North American tour, Never Say Die residents Dodge & Fuski hit the studio hard to produce their innovative new EP Bad Meaning Good.  Dropping worldwide October 8th, Dodge & Fuski are thrilled to share this eclectic mix of meticulous tracks that they’ve been pouring themselves into for months.

This 5-track EP starts off strong with the anthem-esque “Got 2 Come Together.”  With a catchy melody and genius use of sampling, this song builds into bass-filled frenzy that could be mistaken for electronic warfare.

“Bad” is a high-energy banger reminiscent of Pendulum’s DNB sounds of yore.  Finished off with rousing vocals from Messinian, this track is sure to get everybody moving.

We get an extra-sweet taste of that Dodge & Fuski sound that we all love on “Turn It Up.”  A smooth blend of samples and sounds, this track is a glitchy, bouncy, feel-good dubstep jam for any occasion. 

With its slow, mellow feel, “Call My Name” definitely stands out from the rest of this EP. This end-of-the-night jam gains some weight as it progresses, but the soothing piano and mesmerizing vocals keep it calm and strangely serene.

Completing this solid EP is a remix of “Bad” by Circus Records bad boy Brown & Gammon—a track that mains the heavy glitch of the original with a sound that’s all it’s own.  This compilation stays true to the duos quirky, genre-blending style, but is definitively better than anything we’ve heard from these Bristol boys thus far.  By orders of magnitude.
