Dabs brings another pair of innovative beats to the ever busy Horizons Music roster. Stentah sees MC Kwality step up on vocal duties, providing a ragga style toast to a distinctly dub and dancehall influenced riddim. Hints of jungle peak through the unusual drum arrangements, keeping the energy D&B while refusing to drop into an obvious rolling break.
Half Truth brings HLZ and Need for Mirrors into the mix for a deep, melancholic roller. Crisp, insistent high hats and hefty sub provides the backbone of the tune, with a liberal sprinkling of piano and strings giving the beat character and soul.
Head over to the Horizons store to grab this on vinyl or digital now.
Dabs steps up with some seriously deep beats for his latest release on Horizons. Skull & Bones combines a creepy rasta vocal from MC Kwality with intricate, tribal percussion and what sounds like a sitar sample to create a creepy, cinematic vibe that could just as easily be used to soundtrack a ritualistic movie scene as to large up the dance.
Over on the flip Hourglass changes it up, teaming up with Mortem and keeping the beat rolling but muted on more of a deep liquid tip. Harmonic chimes sit delicately in the mix alongside soulful echo’d vocals and an insistent bass growl that gives the tune teeth without overpowering it.
Grab this now on advance white label from the Horizons shop and look out for the full digital/vinyl release later in the month.
