Hadouken! return with their first single for new label Ministry Of Sound Records on 5th August 2012. ‘Bad Signal’, produced by up-and-coming Aeph, confirms the band at the very forefront of the new wave of UK Bass, unquestionably the most dominant and exciting sound of 2012. As Zane Lowe declared when awarding Hottest Record In The World status to their free download Parasite in April, “Hadouken!’s evolution has come through all forms of club…and this is their most authentic run at Bass culture yet.” In the space of a month Parasite has been downloaded over 55,000 times while the video has racked up an impressive 150,000 hits and counting.
The reason for this wild-fire word of mouth response is simple. Bass is the underground club sound that has swallowed the mainstream and as such it's the last great British youth movement. And while there are producers and DJs such as Chase And Status, Nero or even America's Skrillex who convey that very successfully, there hasn't been anybody who has crossed the sheer whumph of Bass music with the pent-up energy and personality of a break-neck rock gig. That's exactly where Hadouken! come in. If ever the stars have aligned for a group's return then it's for Britain's hardest working, most switched on young band.
‘Bad Signal’ comes backed with radical remixes from three of drum ‘n bass and British house leading lights – Xilent, The Prototypes and Wideboys.
Hadouken! have also just announced a very special show at Ministry Of Sound on 26th July that they will be curating. Support comes from the Skrillex championed M Machine who will be making their much-anticipated UK debut. Hadouken! also take their must-see live show to a series of festival dates throughout the UK and Europe over the summer.
