I have an expansive digital music library that was in absolute shambles thanks to iTunes metadata fuckery over the years. When the isolation period began in Texas I resolved that I’d use my free time to fix it file by file, folder by folder, and label by label so that it was accurate and correct. […]
Break and Kyo, the two minds behind Symmetry Recordings, were kind enough to answer some of my questions ahead of their latest release SYMM031 – The Edge Of Time / City Slickers (Workforce/Skeptical Remixes). As an aside…this might be a first in Symmetry Recordings’ discography; a release of just remixes. If that’s true, then there […]
Do you enjoy lush, cinematic soundscapes with a tinge of drum and bass? Do you like joyful, mind fucking ambiance that tickles the cerebrum? Do you like audio enlightenment? Well good news, Kimyan Law’s new album Yonda on Blu Mar Ten Music is for you. I find Kimyan’s music to be masterful, but it might […]
In Blu Mar Ten’s typically understated way, they announced a massive collaboration with BCee of Spearhead Records, entitled Grow, that also features DRS, Charlotte Haining, and Lucy Kitchen. I was so taken with the title track that I pre-ordered a vinyl copy before the clip was finished. Dun a thing with BCee, DRS, Charlotte Haining & […]
Another stormer from this year’s Sun & Bass festival. Doc Scott with DRS, Fox, and Visionobi was one of my favorite sets from that week with big, big choons and all three MC’s carrying the vibe. Reminiscing feels so good.
The Sun & Bass Podcast just posted this audio from the Total Science set with GQ from Ambra Night. Helluva set!
Jack Boston (formerly just Boston) has been a staple on Break’s Symmetry for the last couple of years. His sound fits well with the overall vibe of the label with a combination of heavy bass-laden tracks and a touch of soul. The Place is the aforementioned bass driven number with the sultry vocals of Vanity […]
In what could, possibly, be the biggest story in drum & bass circles is the apparent return of Kemal. If you’re relatively new to D&B, then you might not be aware of how big this is for the scene. Kemal and his production partner, Rob Data, aka Konflict, smashed every dance in the late 90s […]
You know what you do when you’re jacked up on caffeine and feel like you could move mountains with just your brain, but you need a suitably dark soundtrack to do it? You listen to a mix by techstep don, Technical Itch. If you like what you hear, hop on over to his Bandcamp page and […]
It’s been awhile since I felt strongly enough about a release to do a lil Beats and Pieces work, but for this release on Viper I’m willing to dust off my keyboard and thesaurus. Rituals/Beyond, by relative Viper new-comer Millbrook (along with Odure & Disprove on Beyond) has tickled my ear holes. The first “A” […]
