We’ve been eagerly awaiting new music from Boston since his last release for Symmetry and true to form he’s back on Break’s imprint with four new silky smooth rollers that glide along effortlessly.
As with previous releases, Boston’s compositions are characterised by live guitar licks, crisp percussion, rich synths and a hint of jazz. That hint of jazz is handled subtly too, unlike some of the rather sax-heavy “jazz’n’bass” stylings employed by other producers in the scene, and that subtlety really makes the music shine.
Treading that beautifully fine line between being musical enough for the living room and hefty enough for the club with style and aplomb, this is another superb EP from a producer whose style has found the perfect home on Symmetry. Absolutely lush. Check out the clips below and hit up your favourite store to grab a copy right now.
2015 is set to be a big year for D&B once again, with the scene looking stronger and more diverse than ever. With that in mind, here are our picks of five up and coming producers to watch this year, who are pushing the sound in interesting new directions.
Young Welsh producer Boston touches down for his second single on Symmetry Recordings with two slices of impeccable deep liquid. Taking the energy and melody back a couple of notches compared to his excellent label debut, both tracks exhibit the flair and musicality which makes Boston such a rare and exciting talent.
Catch Your Breath is an exercise in understatement; resisting the temptation to over-egg the elements, the bass is warm but not too aggressive, the melody poignant but subtle, and the breaks simple but effective. Jazzy licks round off a super deep slice of liquid brilliance. Over on the flip, For Grace takes the energy up a couple of notches for a more playful, less contemplative track with more warm bass and beautiful guitar work. D&B for a jazz bar perhaps? Beautiful either way. Check out the clips below and grab this from March 9th via the Symmetry Store.
Symmetry Recordings welcomes a fresh new talent to the roster with a great release from Cardiff producer Boston. A side Go With Me recruits singer-songwriter Solis for an absolutely mesmerizing deep liquid roller, tinged with sorrow and feeling. The soft vocals and shimmering guitar work on this are outstanding.
Over on the flip The Little Things touches down in jazzier territory, with another rolling break and a plethora of understated guitar and sax work providing the appropriate melodic chops. A fantastic debut release from a young producer who doubtless has tons more to offer! Check out the clips below and grab this on digital from Monday October 27th.
