Javano – Truth / Reverse Gliding [Sub:mission Audio]

Sub:mission Audio are back with a pair of fresh new liquid rollers from young London-based producer Javano.

There’s also a big wobbly jungle-tinged roller in the form of Brighter Days which you can grab from Soundcloud; can’t say fairer than that! Check out the clips below and look for this dropping at all the usual digital outlets from April 1st.

Mitekiss – Vaxe / Deltica [Sub:mission Audio]

Leeds based imprint Sub:mission Audio continue to impress with another great new single from an up and coming talent, this time in the form of new addition to the label Mitekiss. The Croydon-based producer serves up a pair of effortless liquid rollers – Vaxe on the A-side proves a melancholy, piano-led slice of emotion straight from the school of Tokyo Prose, while Deltica heads for slightly more unusual territory, combining soft pads with odd little FX hits.

Both tracks show an appreciation for the “less is more” stylings of deep liquid D&B and a thoughtful musicality that’s difficult not to engage with. Check out the clips below, and watch out for this dropping from October 15th at all good digital stores.

Hex – Grey Skies / Weightless [Sub:mission Audio]

DNB Dojo’s very own Hex touches down on Sub:mission Audio with a pair of deep liquid rollers. Grey Skies sets a moody tone, the sound of rainfall on the intro giving way to deep sub and a crisp, rolling break, with a halftime switchup in the second half providing a change of pace. Weightless shifts the vibe into sunnier territory, with rapid arpeggios and warm, shimmering synths set to a a classic liquid style beat.

To celebrate the release, Hex has put together a tasty mix full of deeper D&B from the likes of Tokyo Prose, Seba, Technimatic, Blu Mar Ten and LSB. Check that out below, and grab the release from your favourite digital outlet now!

Malk – Finally Loner [Sub:mission Audio]

Sub:mission Audio returns with their 5th release, with something of a coup for the label as they sign a tune from Invisible Recordings alumni Malk. Finally Loner brings together lush pads, sometimes eastern sounding synth swells, warm bass and an energetic, rolling break on a tune which successfully straddles the gap between musicality and dancefloor sensibilities. Definitely one for the deep heads.

Over on the flip label co-founder Altered Perception keeps the vibe rolling and melancholy, with soft strings, echoing chords and warm bass growls all melting in and out of the mix over a backdrop of crisp breakbeats. Fans of Klute’s work should definitely check this out – watch out for the release hitting stores from August 11th.

Get To Know…Transmission Audio

Regular readers of the blog will probably already be familiar with Leeds-based upstart Transmission Audio. Altered Perception, Peak and Sanction have been busy over the last year building a fierce catalogue of dark, edgy D&B from up and coming producers like Komatose, Skepsis and Xsetra, and they’ve even found time to start a sister Sub:mission imprint to put out some more melodic beats.

With the labels moving from strength to strength, and the releases dropping all too quickly, the Dojo crew decided it was time for a wee retrospective on the last few releases and what’s to come over the next few months.
