Mitekiss – Crate Six Seven [Hospital]

We first came across Mitekiss here at DNB Dojo back in 2014, when he released a crisp little single for now defunct Leeds imprint Sub:mission Audio. From there the young producer moved on to running his own label Goldfat, before catching the attention of first Shogun Audio and now Hospital Records. Now he lands on Tony Colman’s legendary liquid imprint for his debut album, and we’re pleased to say it’s everything we’d hoped it would be.

Naturally there’s plenty of that emotive liquid that we’ve come to know and love over the years, with higlights coming via Goolab and it’s effortless cascades of piano, the sultry licks of Body Move and the crispy breaks of Hutan. There are also tasty outings into different stylistic territory to enjoy though; rumbling tech aptly vocalised by frequent collaborator Mr Porter on Lenz and a nod to classic jungle on Human being the highlights.

At first glance Crate Six Seven could be dismissed as just another selection of D&B rollers, well-produced but forgettable, but there’s a lot of depth hidden away in these compositions; give it a few listens and we’re sure that the album will get under your skin, just as it has for us here at Dojo HQ. Check out the clips below and hit up the Hospital Store to grab a copy on vinyl, CD or digital now.

Premiere: Elementz of Noize – In Aether

Elementz of Noize returns to his own imprint for a release of more mellow material and we’re proud to present the premiere of lead track In Aether. Following on from the absolutely sublime The Grand Escape earlier this year, the new EP is full of melodic explorations at the deeper end of jungle and that couldn’t be more evident here; classic breaks, hypnotic synths and a zen-like calm pervade the track. Music for the mind, not the dancefloor…watch out for this coming to Bandcamp from Nov 30th.

Premiere: Frame – Unbreakable

The scene in Italy continues to go from strength to strength with another sick release from Frame as he lands on Delta9! Unbreakable blends an ear for melody and atmosphere with a chunky backbone of warping tech bass and heavy hitting breaks for a fine balance of heft and soul. Wicked tune! Look for this one coming Nov 23rd at Beatport with all other stores following on Dec 7th.

DYL – Infinite Dylays EP [Alphacut]

Alphacut has always been a great source of the deeper end of D&B, and their new EP from DYL is no exception. Infinite Dylays (do you see what they did there?) spans a wealth of deep and atmospheric 170 sounds, presenting DYL’s finest work to date, at least to our ears here at DNB Dojo.

From the spacey cinematic halftime of We, through the microfunk influences of Ioana and into the harsh, beatless industrial soundscapes of Space Program, DYL plays with both light and dark and a variety of different sonic textures. Over on the flip we’re treated to the ominous tones and skittering percussion of Mechanism, techno influences on Undefined and spooky halftime vibrations on final track Alpha.

Overall Infinite Dylays presents a proper journey through some of the richest experimental D&B you’re likely to hear this year, and it’s definitely worth your time. Check out the clips below and hit up Redeye to grab a copy on wax right now…

Premiere: Yahna – Seinfeld (Clothcutter Remix)

Party Guy return with another top release working around the fringes of the 170BPM spectrum and we’re pleased to present the premiere of the Clothcutter remix! Taking the unusual textures of the original and flipping them around with the addition of dubby baselines and cinematic synth swells, this one is deep and majestic in equal measure. Look out for this coming Nov 19th…

Premiere: Geety – In Love Before

Eagled eyed (or should that be eagle eared?) followers of the Dojo podcast should recognise this one, featured on episode 24 as a dubplate…so obviously we’re extremely pleased to now present the premiere of Geety’s In Love Before! Dropping this Friday on Nu Venture Records, this is a deep, emotional slice of liquid D&B from a Brighton based producer we’re very much hoping to hear more from. Yes yes!

Premiere: Sicknote & Escher – Trouble

Something pretty special in our premiere spotlight today as we present the exclusive on Sicknote & Escher’s phenomenal new track Trouble. Combining crunchy breakbeat programming with ominous orchestral samples, the sense of drama and tension across the track is really special and the tone is pretty much unlike anything else we’ve heard this year. Wicked stuff. This one is strictly vinyl, and limited to 50 copies – head to the Clashmouth record fair on Nov 10th to snag a copy, or keep a close eye on their social feeds to try and grab any remaining after that…
