Premiere: Seas of Grease – Sojourn

Today’s premiere comes courtesy of Melbourne electronic artist Seas of Grease.

That softer atmosphere is retained on this track too though, with lush synth work set to a driving D&B backbone. Check it out below and hit up his Bandcamp to grab the whole album right now.

Premiere: Peshay – Capricorn

Today’s premiere is a little special to say the least; we’re honoured to have an exclusive from legendary Drum & Bass pioneer Peshay! Taken from his first D&B album in over a decade, album opener Capricorn builds slowly with epic pads and soft piano, eventually breaking into a wash of jungle breaks, warm bass and melodic overlays; liquid that takes inspiration from the glory days of the scene while also looking forward to the future. Beautiful! Watch out for the Reflections LP coming on triple vinyl and digital via Belgian imprint De:tuned from June 1st.

Premiere: Sirus – Arashi

Sirus returns to Detached Audio with a big new single and we’re hyped to be premiering the A side Arashi! Soft chimes, skittering breakbeats and rich pads on the long intro lulled us into a false sense of security on first listen, expecting a soft liquid roller; then the drop hit us like a ton of bricks! Serious amen hardstep business…savage bass snarls and machine gun snare rolls a plenty. Look for this one dropping tomorrow at Bandcamp and other digital outlets.
