This one is pretty special…we’re incredibly excited to bring you an exclusive mix today from the one and only Hybris! Packed full of cuts from his own label Pseudoscience alongside classics from the man himself for Subtitles and Metalheadz, plus cuts from imprints like Sofa Sound, Guidance and Invisible, this is an hour long masterclass in the intricate, technical end of D&B. Sick selections!
Hybris gives us the first glimpse of his forthcoming album for Noisia’s Invisible imprint, due to drop in September. Timeloop features lush atmospheres on the intro leading up to a savage tech-funk drop; the main verse features some ultra-detailed percussion work too, and the precision of the whole thing is impressive to say the least.
Over on the flip Mind Grind opens up with eerie looped samples, gradually giving way to a menacing rising bassline which drops into a robotic drumstep riddim that should get your head nodding!
As if that wasn’t enough, Hybris and Invisible are giving away a free download to promote the release in the form of eWaste. Bringing together savage neurofunk bass, sci-fi soundscapes and a heavy hitting scattershot drum pattern, this one should shake things up on the dancefloor. Head over to the Invisible Soundcloud to grab a copy and watch out for the Timeloop single dropping July 14th at all good stores.
Noisia’s Invisible imprint continues to showcase the experimental side of drum & bass. Nickbee opens the salvo with the sublime Third Entity; beautiful atmospherics on the intro give way to monstrous bass stabs and some super crisp percussion work throughout the track gives it that polish that separates the 1% from the rest of the D&B scene.
Axon moves things along with the hyper syncopated trap-infused sounds of STTR – comparatively stripped back but packed full of rhythm and an infectious groove. Noisia themselves contribute the cinematic sounds of The Tower, drenched in gloom and a beat pattern so sparse it’s almost non-existent, and Fre4knc closes things out with a tidy sub-heavy stepper.
