Once again the sands of time have slipped past and we have another slew of top notch D&B to cover! Read on for all the latest from John B, J:Kenzo, Eighth Moon, Paradox and more…
LA liquid producer Eighth Moon is back with another pair of smooth, floaty rollers and once again it’s a blissful summery vibe to enjoy the last of the sunshine with.
Western Horizon hums along with effortless melody and a sense of unabashed glee, but still somehow avoids coming off as overly cheesy, no mean feat in the world of melodic D&B where many producers end up with a distinctly cheddarstep sound.
Celestial Flight follows suit, keeping the beats rolling and the tone warm and fuzzy, with a playful bassline unpinning soaring synth melodies and a childlike exuberance sometimes lacking from more po-faced dance music. The release is avilable now at Eighth Moon’s bandcamp, so check out the clips below and go grab it!
LA producer Eighth Moon comes correct with two upbeat slices of melodic liquid business. A-side Photosynthesis blends soaring, IDM-esque synth melodies with a driving liquid break and warm bass. Over on the flip, Archipelago heads for softer, jazzier territory, dialling back the energy a little to explore playful melodies via synth and piano.
With a melodic flourish that’s reminiscent of brain-dance producers of the Warp / Rephlex arena (Wisp springs to mind) the tracks both have a charm and innocence which is lacking from much of modern drum & bass. Have a listen to the clips below and hit up Eighth Moon’s bandcamp to grab the tracks right now.
