After a self-imposed break from the stage to spend more time in the studio, Bristol's premier rave wrecking rap/dubstep collective Central Spillz return with a new line-up and new project; 'The Overspill'.
Since 2011's 'Space Travel' album, producer Superisk and vocalist Shadz (now signed to PMR Recordings as Javeon) have departed for pastures new. Ably filling the gap is one of UK hip hop's best kept secrets, Sirplus, who links with original members Redders, Strikez, Skillzee and Koast to form the new-look 2013 Spillz.
Best known for their raucous live shows, which have seen them perform across the UK and beyond, including bookings at Glastonbury, Outlook, Boomtown Fair, Nass and Nozstock festivals, the Central Spillz boys are no slouches in the studio either. The collective’s unique blend of hip-hop lyricism and beats that recall a misspent raving youth has seen the guys collaborate with bass-music luminaries such as Starkey (for a release on Ninja Tune), Joker, Guido and Dev79, while as individuals they’ve notched up releases on labels including Black Butter, HENCH, Lobster Boy, Audio Zoo and Ramajam.
'The Overspill' is a collection of songs recorded over the life of the collective, and includes remasters of their earliest demos alongside some brand-spanking-new bangers. Collaborators on the mixtape include Gemmy, former Spillz man Interface, Rossi B & Luca, Temo and Isola Dusk.
With the mixtape ready to roll and a batch of new videos in the pipeline, Central Spillz are now ready to take it back to the place they know best – the stage. Preferably with a bottle of rum and a pint of Sambuca...
