Featuring some seriously heavyweight new beats from leading players and rising stars in the neurofunk scene alike, Mindtech’s Peace of Mind LP is a force to be reckoned with and then some; essential listening for fans of hard impact, forward thinking D&B sounds.
Melbourne’s Plasma Collaborative imprint return after a fairly lengthy hiatus with their second release, keeping the quality high and the beats innovative. A-side Yoga sees Sabre exploring the hip-hopy halftime sound with creepy bleeped up melodies and dark, grimey bass. Plenty of swagger on this one!
The flip comes from Cruel Culture & Keosz, who serve up a weird slice of atmospheric D&B characterised by a hectic and unconventional beat pattern and a fairly busy mix of musical elements. The title of Threat certainly captures the frantic, dangerous vibe of the tune. Check out the clips below and look for this one right now at all good digital stores.
Protect Audio take a break from their usual dark and minimal aesthetics for a softer set of beats from Cruel Culture & Keosz. Sorrow blends rolling breaks with microfunk-esque percussive touches and a nice piano hook for a great slice of deep liquid.
Thought keeps the vibe mellow with lush, shimmering ambience on the intro giving way to warm sub bass vibrations and a deftly crafted drum line as the musical elements fade in and out of the mix overhead. Those who like their D&B a little less dancefloor oriented should definitely give this release a look. Check out the clips below and watch out for the release dropping from March 31st.
