Muffler – Composer [Muffler Music]

When it comes to legends of the D&B scene, there are fewer more unsung (or at least under-sung) than Muffler. Producing since the tender age of nine and releasing music for nearly twenty years, Muffler has notched up releases with Spearhead, Hospital, Moving Shadow, DSCI4 and dozens more, flying the flag for Finland with a wicked cross-section of tracks that span the spectrum from dark to light and hard to soft.

Just before Christmas he dropped his fifth album, launching new imprint Muffler Music into the bargain, and we’re extremely pleased to report that it’s full of the sort of high class, emotional music that has made Muffler a Dojo favourite ever since we heard his 2003 Sounds of the Future LP.

The first few tracks of the album are an absolute treat for anyone who likes a charged piano roller, with Heavy Heart and Composer both standing out as masterclasses in key-work. Zürich Jungle lives up to it’s name with a nod to the more break-focussed style of days gone by, while Dark Funk and Low Frequency show that Konsta still knows how to lay down dark club bangers with ease.

While it might not be pushing too many envelopes, Composer is a love letter to the classic D&B form, and one penned by a supremely talented producer at that. Check out the clips below and hit up your favourite outlet to grab a copy right now.
