Get To Know…Addictive Behaviour

2016 is a weird time for D&B labels. With the tendency towards more rapid release schedules and the increasingly crowded marketplace, it can be tough for a label to forge a distinctive sound and identity while fighting not to get lost in the wash. With that in mind, Addictive Behaviour’s accomplishments are all the more impressive.

With a commitment to quality over quantity, an eye catching visual brand and some seriously heavyweight artists on the roster, Addictive Behaviour are already floating to the top of the pack after two short years with no signs of stopping. Read on for our top 5 from the label’s back catalogue.

Fade’s Musical Inspirations

The ever prolific Fade just dropped the latest in a steady stream of singles and this time his work has landed on Leipzig label Boundless Beatz. Featuring the instantly memorable futuristic synth play of Taino and deep, tribal percussion of Lo-Fi, it’s another top release from a producer who constantly pushes the boundaries of D&B both on and off the dancefloor.

We wanted to find out a bit more about the inspirations for Fade’s music and what ultimately gets him going in the studio, so we asked him to tell us about it. Read on for the man’s top five in his own words. Continue reading

Versus LP [Free Love Digi]

US label Free Love Digi have been making moves recently with some top releases from both homegrown stateside talent and other producers worldwide, and their latest project sees them bringing together 17 tracks from the extended label family for a massive compilation showcasing all the styles of D&B.

Label boss Quentin Hiatus contributes a few tasty collabs, including a spacey footwork-tinged venture with Resound and the quirky rhythmic groove of The Struggle 2 with Sinistarr. Elsewhere there are chunky rollers from Fade, theStandard and Kaset, liquid from Stunna, and gritty halftime from Goreteks and Dominic Ridgeway.

There’s even space for some lush downtempo from AE on Forevergreen and Ghast on the absolutely serene New Lust. Overall it’s a fantastic selection of tracks, showcasing the breadth of FLD’s artists and the scene as a whole. You can check out all the tracks via Atic’s promo mix for the LP below; watch out for the release dropping July 20th at all good digital stores.

Ever the generous bunch, FLD have also teamed up with D&B Arena to give away a free track from Ghast to celebrate the release. Check that out below and head over to D&B Arena to check out their interview with Ghast.

Futurist EP Vol. 2 [Faded Music]

Faded Music return with a fine selection on their latest EP featuring beats from Fade, NotioN, KAI, Fawce & P Fine. Fade sets the tone with a big raved up roller on Graviton, with a high energy lead over a punchy rolling break. Next up are NotioN, who keep things rolling but take things a bit grimier on the insistent and robotic Find It Out.

Fawce & KAI team up with P Fine for another grimey number in the form of Vengeance, before KAI totally switches things up with Take Away; this one has a great combo of soft, floaty melodies and growling low end for a pretty unique and quite stripped back tune.

Last but not least, Fade explores the more minimal half-time stylings on the dark, industrial sounds of Molfar. Tidy stuff as ever from Faded Music! Check out the clips below and grab this one from your favourite digital outlet right now.

Rotation Part One [Addictive Behaviour]

Addictive Behaviour storm back to the scene after a selection of successful single releases with eight new tracks for part one of their Rotation LP. Kiev bass badman and Dojo favourite Fade leads the charge with the crisp, heavy hitting vibes of Danger, swiftly followed by the stomping tech funk of Artifact’s Discordant. Both these tracks deserve a special mention for the attention to detail and vibe present…serious stuff!

Elsewhere on the EP there are moody rollers from Screwball and Noel, a deep stepper from Nitri, Level 2 & Hannah Eve and more monstrous neurofunk bangers from nScape, TR Tactics and Nitri & Release. Tidy selections from a label that has impressed us fairly constantly since their inception; we can’t wait for part two!

Sadly there’s no vinyl release for this one but you can grab the release from all good digital stores right now! Check out the clips below and pick your favourites.

Fade – Acid Trip / Get Rowdy [Diffrent Music]

If the psychedelic artwork and track names haven’t already given you the hint, let us set this one straight for you; Fade is getting a bit ravey on his latest work for Dexta’s ever impressive Diffrent imprint.

Acid Trip leads with classic rave synths on the intro before pounding bass stabs slam down around the heavy hitting half-time rhythm. Get Rowdy meanwhile lulls you into a false sense of security with lush IDM-esque sounds before the frenetic percussion and chipmunk-pitched vocal refrain drop in to hype the track up. Cracking!

Check out the clips below and hit up the Diffrent bandcamp to grab this right now.

Fade – Discover Music [Faded Music]

Fade returns with a new EP aiming to meld the more experimental side of the 170BPM sound with dancefloor sensibilities for a selection of tracks that can make you think as well as move. Discover Music leads the charge with a superb wonky bassline and playful drums, taking fairly dark sounds but turning them into a light hearted composition. The amusingly titled Bass Burger is up next; I’m not sure how experimental this one really is but it’s a bit of a banger regardless! Catchy hooks and massive basslines, yes please.

Error glitches things the fuck up and no mistake; rapid fire stabs and skittering percussion work lead this one all over the place; you might see some confused faces on the dancefloor if you drop this one! This just leaves Quarantine and Utopia to close out the EP with some meaty tech business. As usual Fade is on top form; check out the clips below and look for this from April 20th!
