Diffrent are back with another essential release for those of you who like your D&B on the leftfield end of the spectrum. Kolectiv return to the label after their contribution to last year’s Giraffe LP with their first dedicated release and they’ve brought their A game to the table.
Lead track Immortalis blends influences from hip-hop and footwork with grimey D&B bass and twisted vocals for a crisp, detailed drum workout. Make Me sees Diffrent boss Dexta join the trio for more detailed percussion edits alongside squelchy bass vibrations and a vocal cut that sounds like it was lifted from a classic rave 12″.
Sleeper Cell brings some jazzy influences to the table alongside a militant kick-led beat and a dark, stabbing bassline that should provoke a few screwfaces in the dance. Last but not least for the digital release Kolectiv team up with Mauoq for a hard, nasty slice of dark D&B appropriately titled Killer Instinct; bleak, menacing stuff here.
You can pre-order the album on CD (with two exclusive bonus tracks) from the Diffrent Store now, with discs shipping from November 10th; digital will follow on Juno from the 17th and everywhere else from the 24th.
