With a new EP dropping for Detached Audio after a string of top releases across the likes of Skankandbass, Differential and Nu Venture, we thought it was high time we caught up with Linear (known to his mum as Charles Hague) for a quick chat. Read on for the lowdown on his musical background, lockdown compositions and all things Linear…
Detached Audio celebrate five years in the game with the first of a series of EP releases this month, and we’ve grabbed the exclusive on Livid Cheese’s contribution Pretty Simple Music. Featuring some fantastic sound design, the track combines jazz influences and slap-bass instrumentation with warping neuro basslines and hefty drums; putting the funk back into neurofunk! Hit up Bandcamp to pre-order the EP now ahead of the release on Friday 29th.
Regular readers will know we’re big fans of K2T here at DNB Dojo. As co-manager of Detached Audio he’s been a reliable A&R presence, bringing a slew of varied releases from up and coming names to our collective ears, and he’s an accomplished producer in his own right with a gift for soulful liquid rollers with an old school percussive flavour. As he gears up to drop his debut LP The Tranquillity of Being With The Self, we grabbed him for a chat about album flows, mental health and downtempo influences…plus we’ve got the premiere of the title track! Check it out…
Liquid vibes once again from the Detached audio camp as Kinaes steps in with a jazzy new roller featuring Sonny G. Warm bass, rolling breaks and those sax licks…lovely stuff. This one drops alongside a new Kinaes remix on Dec 27th!
Linear lands on Detached Audio with a new EP this month and we’ve got the exclusive today on deep liquid roller Droplets! Combining Linear’s flare for rolling dancefloor drum grooves with softer melodic touches and a hint of jazz, this one is deep and uplifting, exactly as you’d expect from Detached! The EP drops Nov 8th at all good digital stores.
So, Karma Kingdom, Echo Motion and Detached Audio. You know it’s gonna be a lush liquid roller. In the wise words of Echo Motion, “the combination of rolling breaks and beautiful samples will always be a winner”. Couldn’t have put it better ourselves! Look for this one coming September 13th at the usual digital stores.
Our latest mix guest is an artist we’ve admired for some time now; hailing from Hawaii and a regular contributor of releases to Detached Audio, we’re excited to welcome Option to the Dojo decks! As you’d expect from the man’s productions, the focus here is on soulful liquid rollers and emotional drum and bass, and we think you’ll agree it delivers in spades. Check it out, and keep your ears peeled for some unreleased music from the man himself.
K2T returns with the second sampler from his forthcoming debut LP, and for today’s premiere he teams up with Bay 6 artist Echo Motion for a playful, piano led liquid jam with hints of jungle in the breaks. Love the little downtempo bridge on this! Look for the EP coming June 7th at the usual outlets…
We’ve got a very special premiere from Detached Audio boss K2T today as he unveils the first Sampler EP from his forthcoming debut LP for the label! The Sanctuary’s Kingdom combines Karan’s love of old school tinged breakbeats with his talent for emotive melody and compositional depth, for a track that is mysterious and uplifting in equal measure. We can’t wait to hear the rest of the album…but in the meantime you can grab the Elder Spirit EP on Mar 29th.
All profits from the release will go to the charity Help Musicians UK which provides grants and support for musicians, including running the enormously important Music Minds Matter project to support musicians’ mental health. Great music for a great cause…get to know.
Soft liquid goodness on today’s exclusive as we showcase the lead track from Detached Audio’s brand new Delta 003 EP. Henry brings a deft melodic touch to the label, fusing those serene elements with jungle-infused breaks for a beautiful combination of rough and smooth. Look out for this one coming March 1st at all the usual digital outlets.
