SKisM Calls Out Disciple On Twitter

Never Say Die / Black Label founder SKisM has taken to Twitter tonight in a rare tirade, suggesting Disciple Records founders Myro and Dodge & Fuski have copied his own label’s tactics.

A steady flow of Tweets from SKisM commenced at 6pm BST, just moments after Disciple announced their new (and pretty awesome sounding) Round Table sub-label. First, a heads up that something was about to happen…

Then came a straight-up diss video…

Several hours of flame fanning later, the UK/Australia-based DJ/label owner/manager/long-missed producer returned to Twitter and added more and more fuel to the fire, all of which is revealed as it happened below. If you were doing something better than hanging on Twitter and missed this, grab some popcorn (or your preferred salt-based snack)…

The beef is real. And here’s the twist…. Go back to that first video checked out the website: discipleroundtable.com… Is that a Black Label XL 4 cover, along with a heavily requested Badklaat ID that’s been supported by the likes of Getter and recent 12th Planet signing 12th Planet (who posted about it last month) throughout the summer? It’s even called Knuckle Sandwich. Ouch.

Quite the punchline. Not only do we have a new label from Disciple that’s looking primed with some exceptional heavyweight dubstep, we have a brand new Black Label XL album, too. There’s some serious fall-outs happening behind the scenes (sadly) but let’s be real: this is a win/win for all bass fans…

For balance, here’s the Round Table announcement from Disciple. Whatever they have planned for the new project, it’s sounding sick…

We’re lovers not fighters at UKF. We have stacks of time and respect for all four labels to exist within our weird bass world. Granted, some of SKisM’s shots are pretty raw but Disciple’s recent promotional build up to 12th Planet joining them was a really innovative and fun. And, as SKisM pointed out himself, their roster is exceptional and the label’s output has been fire.

Bottom line: We’re looking forward to what Disciple Round Table reveals next and the inevitable KO of Black Label XL 4. It’s clearly shaping up to be a great month for proper bass music. Let’s just hope this doesn’t spiral out of control. Or if it does, then let it spiral into a massive soundclash where both brand’s talents go head-to-head in a bass battle that we’ll be telling our grandkids about in decades to come. In the meantime, let’s all chill and have a nice cup of PLUR yeah?
