AK1200, Gridlok and Dom & Roland - The Lycan Autopsy

With a meticulously and deliberately crafted sound harkening back to the days of jungle 0.0, AK1200 and Gridlok bring the world Autopsy. The latest full-length on the Project 51 imprint, the 2 x CD album is set to drop worldwide on August 12, 2008. Birthed from their unshakable desire to bring drum n’ bass back to the forefront of dance music, AK and Gridlok set out to deconstruct and rebuild the genre - retaining only its signature elements. They’ve invited everyone from George Clinton to a yet-to-be-named fan, to have a hand in the revolution. Welcome to drum n’ bass 2.0 (

The album title, Autopsy, is a nod to a theme reinforced throughout the two disc set. Disc one, The Examination, is a bi-coastal studio collaboration, in which AK1200 and Gridlok used Ableton Live to create a mix set of handpicked gems from the Project 51 (P51) back-catalog, piled high with remix, edit, and effects treatment exclusively for the purpose of this project. Disc two, The Diagnosis, is the duo’s response to the current state of drum n’ bass – ten tracks, brand new in every sense. Breakthrough elements include collaborations with George Clinton (Parliament Funkadelic), Shy FX (Digital Soundboy), JO'b of LA Riots (Fools Gold), and Pendulum (Ear Storm). Autopsy will be available in stores and online through retailers in certain areas as early as August 12th, with worldwide release by September.
