Premiere: Frame – Unbreakable

The scene in Italy continues to go from strength to strength with another sick release from Frame as he lands on Delta9! Unbreakable blends an ear for melody and atmosphere with a chunky backbone of warping tech bass and heavy hitting breaks for a fine balance of heft and soul. Wicked tune! Look for this one coming Nov 23rd at Beatport with all other stores following on Dec 7th.

DYL – Infinite Dylays EP [Alphacut]

Alphacut has always been a great source of the deeper end of D&B, and their new EP from DYL is no exception. Infinite Dylays (do you see what they did there?) spans a wealth of deep and atmospheric 170 sounds, presenting DYL’s finest work to date, at least to our ears here at DNB Dojo.

From the spacey cinematic halftime of We, through the microfunk influences of Ioana and into the harsh, beatless industrial soundscapes of Space Program, DYL plays with both light and dark and a variety of different sonic textures. Over on the flip we’re treated to the ominous tones and skittering percussion of Mechanism, techno influences on Undefined and spooky halftime vibrations on final track Alpha.

Overall Infinite Dylays presents a proper journey through some of the richest experimental D&B you’re likely to hear this year, and it’s definitely worth your time. Check out the clips below and hit up Redeye to grab a copy on wax right now…

Look out for this coming Nov 19th…

Visages – ONYX008

Toulouse production crew Visages are only on to their second release, but they’re already making waves; following on from a top debut for Impact Music earlier this year they’ve just dropped a follow up for Flexout’s Onyx series and it features three cuts of razor sharp dark techstep that are well worthy of your attention.

Kicking things off is Para Days, featuring a simple but effective vocal hook from Messy MC; this one is a classic stepper with a solid progression and an infectious vibe. Next up the crew join forces with fellow Toulousian Trail for a hypnotic, techno-infused roller. Shifted is a proper earworm with one of the best synth leads we’ve heard in some time; subtle but absolutely vibing.

Last up, Mellow Honey brings a more soulful edge to the proceedings, keeping things minimal but adding some soft pads and sultry vocals to the crisp drums for a deeper workout. Overall it’s a great statement of intent from a crew that clearly have a lot of talent; we’re already looking forward to their next outing, wherever it might land. In the meantime, you can grab ONYX008 right now over here.

Premiere: Conspired Within – Bad Intentions

Hard hitting amens and dark atmospherics a plenty on today’s exclusive as US producer Conspired Within lands on Ronin Ordinance! Bad Intentions lives up to it’s name, blending halftime kick patterns with the kind of battering amen chops which characterised early 2000s releases on the likes of Tech Itch Recordings. Throw in some growling reese danger for good measure and you’ve got a darkside weapon sure to smash up the dance. Sick tune! Look for this dropping exclusively at Beatport from Nov 30th, with other stores following two weeks later.
