Today we present the second of our Headsbass Volume 7 premieres with Dojo boss Hex on the buttons alongside fellow Scottish producer Frustrate! In The Wind blends melancholy melodies with upbeat amens for a deep, old school liquid feel. Look for this coming Oct 29th, and as always all proceeds will go towards mental health charities.
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.
Dojo boss Hex returns with more of his techy stylings for Transmission Audio’s new TA:LTD sublabel. Winged Foes opens up with creepy atmospherics and then drops into a metallic neurofunk assault with tearing midrange and heavy kicks and snares clattering down from all sides.
Over on the flip Frustrate provides a tasty new remix of Slugproof, adding plenty of grit to the bass and locking the track into a weighty, rolling groove. Check out the clips below and grab this one from Digital Tunes right now!
Up and coming producer Frustrate unleashes his debut EP for Chaos Audio, showcasing range and versatility for someone comparitively new to the game. Alongside D&B rollers like the titular Chaos Elevator and the deep and dubby Digital, we’re also treated to Breakbeat and Dubstep beats before Endloop brings things to a close with some nice techy business.
