 DESCRIPTION

 "Graveyard Shift" is a track that travels down a path of night crawling action. The rhythm
 structure is made in a way that swings back and forth in a tight set of boundaries, bringing a
 haunting vibe to the dancefloor. The percussion rolls teamed with the sweeping and stabbing fx,
 really capture the mystique and darkness of after-hours music. This track is completed with a
 melody that is catchy but very deep and emotional, bringing life to the atmosphere. Altogether,
 this track will bring out the dancing machine in any clubgoer.

 Right from the vocal intro, "Nightbreed" lays the foundation of how people who are into
 electronic music feel most normal when being out amongst the sea of crowds getting down in
 the night, perfect for a djs intro. The rest of the track has a very aggressive percussion layout
 that carries into stabbing melodies. Two bass lines work together creating a real mean and
 tough walk. As this track picks up its pace, a true tribal hustle is created leading into a
 signature New York breakdown with all the makings of peak hour drama on the floor. The track
 then has an incredible streamlining building that slams back into the madness for an all out
 energy release.

 TITLE   "GRAVEYARD SHIFT / NIGHTBREED"

 KNOB004 Review: M8 Magazine, UK (December 2005 Issue) 
    m8magazine.com     DJ Apple 'Graveyard Shift/Nightbreed' (KNOB)

"I've been told this is the first published review of anything from Knob Records, so I'm very proud to be able to say that you heard it here first as your going to hear a lot from this fantastically named label. This is actually the 4th release but by far the best so far. First up is the Style & Zor remix of 'Graveyard Shift' which is set to raise a few neck hairs with it's powerful synths. Wait till you hear 'Nightbreed' though! Relentless tribal-tech which breaks into one of the best and darkest melodies I've heard for a long long time. You need this as much as you need to breathe!"
