Q&A – Mantra & Flight

Mantra should need no introduction; over the last ten years she’s left her mark on the scene as a producer with releases for the likes of UVB-76 and Repertoire, as a DJ with countless sets around the world and as a promoter co-running London’s seminal Rupture events. Now she’s teamed up with a gang of formidable names to start EQ50, an event aimed at giving a leg up to women and non-binary people looking to progress within the D&B scene. We caught up with her and Flight to find out a bit more about the project…

Premiere: Elementz of Noize – In Aether

Elementz of Noize returns to his own imprint for a release of more mellow material and we’re proud to present the premiere of lead track In Aether. Following on from the absolutely sublime The Grand Escape earlier this year, the new EP is full of melodic explorations at the deeper end of jungle and that couldn’t be more evident here; classic breaks, hypnotic synths and a zen-like calm pervade the track. Music for the mind, not the dancefloor…watch out for this coming to Bandcamp from Nov 30th.

Premiere: Trex – Manic Culture

One of our favourite imprints returns to the Dojo premiere spotlight; The Dreamers are back at it and this time we’ve got the exclusive on Manic Culture from London producer Trex.

Premiere: Fearful – Through The Mist

Fearful’s debut LP for Diffrent Music is almost upon us so naturally we had to snatch up an exclusive! Through The Mist goes in deep on an atmospheric tech rumbler powered along by some of the most detailed percussion we’ve heard from Fearful yet…taking a few leaves from the Amoss playbook while retaining his own unique take on the D&B sound, this is a cracking track, and the rest of the album is equally engaging. Look out for the Interference LP dropping tomorrow on vinyl, CD and digital…

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…
