Groves lands back on Deviant Audio with a weighty halftime head-nodder for their new Deviations LP. Easy Slugger is all about those basslines; simple but heavy, layered over sparse drums and tripped out bleed melodies. Look out for the album coming April 7th.
Halftime bass fiya on today’s premiere as Groves drops a fresh new EP for Unchained! Stomping beats, infectious hooks and low end weight…can’t argue with that formula! Look for this at Beatport and Bandcamp from Mar 28th.
Hot on the heels of a great EP for Exit Records, Groves lands on Lisbon label Skalator this month and we’ve got the exclusive on lead track Clinik! Blending deep atmospherics with intricate drum rhythms, this feels like a love letter to the days of Photek and Source Direct…pure funk. Check it out and look for the EP coming May 14th at all good digital stores.
We’re hyped to welcome Canadian D&B foursome Vortex to the Dojo decks for our latest exclusive mix! With an LP dropping on Deviant Audio next week and a ton of beats in the works, the super team of Stranjah, Groves, Captivate and David Louis are set for a big 2018.
For their Dojo mix the guys have dished up a selection of 100% original material from the Vortex project and their solo aliases, including tons of cuts from the Flow State LP and a handful of dubs to boot. Sick! As always you can check out the mix via Soundcloud below or head to Youtube or iTunes to stream. You can also grab a download from Google Drive.
Canada’s D&B supergroup Vortex return this month with a full length album for Deviant Audio, and we’ve got the exclusive on one of the LP’s highlights, Defcon-5. Blending halftime grooves with jungle-influenced production, rumbling sub bass and a tight bleep lead, this one is subtle but deadly. Look out for the whole album coming Feb 21st…serious business.
Another brand new exclusive for you today and we’re in on a jungle tip for our latest premiere from the Ronin Ordinance camp, taken from the label’s 10th release. Vortex is a new collaborative project from Toronto artists David Louis (Repertoire), Stranjah (Critical, 117, Deviant Audio), Groves and Captivate and the team’s love of the classic jungle sound is evident on this release; old school pad sounds, chunky breaks and a 90s aesthetic, while taking advantage of the modern production techniques that give D&B it’s punch in 2017. Fans of Andyskopes should definitely check this one out…watch out for the release dropping at Bandcamp Dec 22nd, just in time for a jungle Christmas.
