Kazakhstan may seem like an unlikely place for a prolific D&B producer to be based, but it hasn’t stopped the inimitable Command Strange from chalking up a ridiculously large discography over the past few years, on prestigious labels like Fokuz and Metalheadz Platinum. 2013 seems likely to see a slew more top notch releases, and among the first is a tidy little 12″ for Horizons.
A side Hyperbug sees the man from ‘stan bringing the dancefloor vibes with a dark stepper that features some nice jungle-tinged breakbeat fills but for me it’s all about the soulful, melancholy atmosphere of Regrets on the flip. Beautiful piano melodies and echoing vocal cut ups combine with a dark bass that gives the track enough edge to avoid formulaic liquid territory. One for the deep selectors.
To celebrate the release Command Strange has also recorded the latest episode of the Horizons podcast, which you can check out (and download for free) below. Grab the release from the Horizons shop, out now!
