It may surprise a few folks to learn that Uprising is actually the third album from drum & bass duo Evan Short and Matt Harvey, better known as Concord Dawn. Having been at it in their native New Zealand for years, it wasn’t until they exploded onto the international jungle scene with massive releases on imprints like Timeless, Freak and Renegade Hardware that their name has filtered down to the masses. Familiar bits like “Morning Light,” “Tonite” and “Zulu” represent here, as well as fresh treats like the Slayer-inspired “Raining Blood,” the pile-driving “Don’t Tell Me,” and the Bristol-flavored “Ninja.” All are instant anthems with catchy hooks, tough beats and an innate sense of the dramatic, firmly securing Concord Dawn’s place among the d&b elite.
