Blow the Roof is the second EP by English dubstep artist Flux Pavilion.[1][full citation needed] It entered the UK Albums Chart at number 60 and the UK Dance Albums Chart at number four.

Blow the Roof represents a slight evolution of Flux Pavilion's typical production style while keeping it the same; according to Connor Hartley of the music blog Reigning Beats, "In the EP, Flux plays with his musical styles, performing some trap, some electro-hop, and some faster dubstep rhythms, but refuses to compromise the depth of his sound."[2]

The first song that could be heard from the EP was "Double Edge" due to its inclusion in the video game Need for Speed: Most Wanted, which was released about 3 months before the EP. "Do or Die" (featuring Childish Gambino) was later released as a single alongside remixes from Flosstradamus and FuntCase.[3] An official video was also filmed to accompany the release. The artwork for "Blow The Roof" was created by Jono Hislop.[4]

The title song of the EP is featured in both the 2013 video game Saints Row IV and the 2012 Arrow episode "Unfinished Business".
