Cool Hand Flex – Burn It Up [Default Recordings]

The latest from Default Recordings sees a true Junglist soldier returning to the label’s output. Cool Hand Flex has a discography stretching back to 1991 and he’s picked up some knowledge along the way, to say the least.

Burn It Up and Thru The Storm both carry an old school production style, bringing to mind old Full Cycle records and early Metalheadz. Aptly chosen samples, simple but effective basslines and chunky breaks are the order of the day here, and the results are pretty tasty. Check out the clips below and look for this at digital stores from July 13th.

West – Dark Soul / Where You Are [Default Recordings]

Default return with two new beats from label co-runner West. Dark Soul provides a solid slab of dancefloor worthy D&B combining melodic elements with rougher bassline sounds, but for us it’s all about the more soulful vibes of Where You Are. Check out the clips below and look for this at digital stores from April 27th.

Creatures – Raindrops / Everyday [Default Recordings]

Default serve up a fresh pair of deep liquid rollers from new signings Creatures. Raindrops leads the charge with twinklings melodies over a backbone of warm sub and crisp breaks, while Everyday recruits Majula to the studio for a softer collab with hints of jungle via some classic samples. Check out the clips below and look for this one from December 15th at all good digital stores.
