April has been yet another fantastic month for Drum & Bass with so many good releases it’s been difficult to keep track! Here’s our pick of the best tracks recently released and forthcoming this month.
First up is the brilliant new EP from Nether, out April 16th on Space Cadets. Fans of ASC, dBridge and the more minimal styles of d&b should check this out for 3 tracks of atmospheric microfunk.
The Shogun release schedule has been packed as ever, with Rockwell‘s new single Tripwire dropping at the end of last month. This time they’re back with the first single from the forthcoming Spectrasoul LP. The A side is a nice piece of atmospheric liquid with a great vocal by Terri Walker but Shackles on the flipside is the highlight of the release, combining super tight amen breakwork with a tidy ragga vocal from Fox. The single is out today so go grab a copy from your favourite digital store.
Total Science & S.P.Y have cooked up a lovely piece of melodic liquid aptly titled Piano Funk which is out now on Tool Room Records. Riya’s trademark soulful vocals on top of a beautifully laid back melody make this a must have for those who appreciate the deeper side of the genre.
Last but not least the good folk at Neosignal have dished up another episode of their podcast which delivers the usual storming barage of neurofunk bassline and hyper compressed kick drums.
