Sentic Cycle lands in our premiere spotlight with a cut taken from Lost Recordings’ five year celebration release Five Years, Still Lost. Grimey basslines and a swaggering hip-hop influence seep through on this slice of dark halftime grit; wicked tune. Watch out for the release dropping Dec 24th, just in time for Christmas!
Stomping tech vibes from Subtle Element on today’s exclusive…grimey bassline modulations to murk up the dancefloor. ‘Nuff said. Look for this one coming via Engage Audio Dec 20th!
Grimey tech minimalism on today’s premiere as Kelayx delivers a thumping new dark roller for Citate Forms! Nuff said…look out for this coming Dec 9th at all fine purveyors of digital drum & bass.
Nurtured Beatz return next month with a very special release as the London imprint presses their first vinyl EP! Longtime label regular Kolectiv deliver a sick new remix of Withdraw, Hyroglifics’ gritty halftime stepper from the 2014 Brand New World LP, and the new flip has a tidy rolling groove while retaining the stark, techy sensibilities of the original. Super keen heads can grab white label test presses right now; full artwork vinyl drops at Bandcamp March 29th, other stores April 5th, and the digital will be available exclusively at Bandcamp on Apr 26th!
Forbidden Society is back with possibly his best (and certainly his most varied) album to date, so naturally we had to grab a premiere! Leech sees the producer harnessing his talent for grimey basslines and applying it to the halftime sound that’s been gaining traction over the past few years, with the result being a heavy head nodder with a ton of swagger. Sick! Watch out for the Fog Walk LP coming Feb 8th at Beatport & Spotify, with all other stores following Feb 22nd.
Sedo teams up with St.Iff for our latest premiere as the pair drop a dirty tech rumbler for Tesseract Recordings. Heavy hitting breaks, grimey bass and an infectious hip-hop hook make for a stripped back roller with more than enough weight to move a dancefloor. Sick! Look for the EP coming Oct 26th at Bandcamp with all other stores following Nov 9th.
We’ve got an exclusive free download for you today courtesy of London producer Taelimb! Intoxicated delivers a characteristically grimey take on the tech sound with scuzzy bassline riffs and crispy drums contrasting with tripped out, siren-like vocal echoes. Sick tune! Hit up Soundcloud or Google Drive to grab the freebie now.
Swiss label Drum Army are in our premiere spotlight today with a top new roller from Namarone. Taken from the label’s forthcoming Drum Anually 003 EP, Prey harnesses tribal percussion fills, deep sub and growling mid swells for an infectious slab of old-school techstep deepness. Wicked tune! Look for the EP coming Oct 25th at all good stores…
Lost Recordings serve up another sick slice of grimey tech D&B on our latest exclusive as we present the premiere of Dedman & Messenger’s Renegade! Leading the forthcoming EP of the same name, this is a classic rolling tech with a vicious lyrical flex to match, hitting like a roundhouse to the chest. Weaponry! Look for the EP coming Oct 19th…
Kolectiv & MEDIKA reunite once again on a fresh EP for Diffrent music bringing possibly their hardest hitting collaborations to date. Artillery brings together skittering, off-kilter beat patterns with a huge section of bass weaponry and a generally militant sensibility; seriously dangerous tune! Look for this one coming September 26th at all the usual outlets…
