Altitude – Levitate / Falling [Warm Communications]

Warm Communications’ new digital only line of releases has seen the label kick into a higher gear in terms of frequency of releases but thankfully the quality on show remains completely undiminished, and that’s never been truer than on their latest single from Altitude.

Having previously released music with the likes of Fokuz & Prestige, Altitude’s style channels the influence of fellow Warm Comms producers like Seba to create rollers drenched in reverb and mystique in equal measure. From the more up-front and entirely hypnotic vibe of Levitate to the deep, floaty synths of Falling, this is sheer class from start to finish. There’s also some nice use of classic sampling on the B side, with the vocal from Soundsource’s Take Me Up (most famously used in Omni Trio’s legendary Renegade Snares) making an appearance.

This single sounds like a producer confidently entering their stride, and we can’t wait to hear what else Altitude has to come! Check out the clips below and look for this one at all digital stores right now.

Infra Audientia Part 1 [Dark Manoeuvres]

London label Dark Manoeuvres return with a new four track EP showcasing some bright new talents from various corners of the scene. nScape turns in a tough but still melody-tinged roller, bursting with cheeky amens and warm sub, while Beaton turns to slightly moodier territory on the ominously named Cavern.

Altitude keeps the grimey flavour going with a dark stepper which alternates between sparse minimalism and hectic break choppage, all set to a background of creepy pads and warping bass texture. Victor Norman rounds off the EP with a tribal halftime number which fans of None Decay and the like will definitely enjoy.
