New D&B Releases





DIS062 – Break & Survival – Stano / Going Over – 12″ Vinyl
When Break & Survival pair up its always something special that gets laid down and the A side of this release sets a a fine example; “Stano” has already racked up 5 plays on Friction’s BBC Radio 1 show and the flip “Going Over” has been aired on the same show as well, in fact come to think of it even the digital bonus track “The Year 2133″ has too on Ant TC1′s Radio 1 guest mix… It’s looking like a big release already arriving fresh and hot on the heels of Octane & DLR”s recently released long player. Support also from the likes of Noisia, Artificial Intelligence (On BBC Radio 1), Octane & DLR, DJ Marky, Youngsta, Silent Witness, Lenzman and Kasra.

CRIT067 – Xtrah – Soundclash / Discordance – 12″ Vinyl
Xtrah Xtrah! You’ll be reading all about this one for a long time to come as Yasin Elgohary delivers his very first outing on Critical Music and what a debut it is. Having smashed the living daylights out of little sister label Modulations with ‘Set The Levels’, his new offerings are nothing short of devastating. Get the vibes in, this one’s ready to rip a hole in it! Summer soundsystem inspired ‘Soundclash’ is possibly the rudest cut of drum & bass you’ll be hearing this year. From the soundboy vox, the heinous thudding b-line and mid-range pops, it’s easy to hear how this dubwise piece of musical mastery has been hammering clubs across the globe. Original junglist material for 2012, there is no doubt. Wheel it up! Straight no filler, this next one is a killer! ‘Discordance’ sees Xtrah rolling hard once again with frenetic percussion and morphing bass that harks back to some vintage Ram Trilogy for a proper full force effect. Prickly drum edits and the massive ‘I know it sounds deep’ vocal make this a great way to end one of the most hefty D&B releases of 2012. Much more to come from this new Critical superstar.

CYN005 – Cyantific – Liberty EP – 12″ Vinyl
Cyantific Music is proud to present the ‘Liberty EP’. This is a perfect showcase of what’s bubbling away at the Cyantific Music Research Facility. With the man himself at the control desk, the ‘Liberty EP’ reflects the production skills of one of the seminal DJs within drum and bass. Cyantific is now pushing his sound, seamlessly moving between genres, tempos and styles. Please take caution and listen within a safe environment. Cyantific Music cannot be responsible for the misuse of this highly explosive material. ’Streets of Rave’ is a nod to a definitive time in dance music with rave edits, storming pads and an infectious lead brought firmly into the 21st century with raw and destructive bass. ’Streets of Rave – Bonus Round’ is a cheeky re-edit taking the original and uppercutting it into uncharted house territory. The bassline is so retro you’ll be drawing for glowsticks and an acid face t-shirt before you can say 1990. ’The Tomorrow People’ allows Cyantific to really flex his dancefloor muscles. Bringing you tomorrow’s future today, this lays claim to all in its path and has been an instant rewind at every party throughout the summer. ’Walking Away’ closes the EP with a classic slice of the sound people have come to expect from Cyantific. His knack for taming volatile vocal samples, emotive chords and rolling bass makes this a red hot catalyst for a dancefloor, radio show or iPod. Knowing his elements inside out, Cyantific’s ‘Liberty EP’ is a nuclear concoction of genre spanning dance music in 2012. Don’t sleep on it.

NARRATIVES003 – Escher – Rugged / Late Snare – 12″ Vinyl
In the short space of a year Narratives Music has gained a level of acclaim and support which belies the labels age. As a Drum and Bass stable it has secured constant support from A list DJs such as Rockwell, D Bridge, Kasra and BBC Radio 1′s Friction; and similarly it has a growing reputation amongst purveyors of other genres, with the likes of Kuedo, Rob da Bank, Laurent Garnier and Ulrich Schnaus offering strong support. The breadth of sound and style in the labels previous two outings pricked the ears of the highly regarded Resident Advisor website who described the Narratives sound as “capable of providing the soundtrack to a film as well as moving a dancefloor”. As the seasons change and the year begins to close, October witnesses the third release and in keeping with the label’s ethos, keeps the listeners on their toes; flipping the sound to something altogether more aggressive whilst maintaining the emotive tones of the previous single. Narratives 003 sees label co-founder Escher dropping his long awaited solo efforts “Rugged” and “Late Snare”. With a firm nod back to the 90′s golden era of DnB, Escher delivers a concoction of breaks and bass that do not contradict the title, its emotive intro setting up the most “Rugged” of drops. Having done the rounds at the summer festivals of Outlook, Sun and Bass, and Dimensions, this brace of tracks represents Narratives darkest and most dancefloor of sounds yet and found its way in to the record bags of the scene’s elite. DJ Support includes : Goldie, Friction, Loxy, Doc Scott, Skeptical, Rockwell, D Bridge

SW016 – Dub One – Lion Step / No More Games / Natalie’s Rhodes – 12″ Vinyl
This 12″ should come with a warning label. Lion Step proves that a tune doesn’t have to be amen to tear down the place. Heavily influenced by the more vigorous side of the dub spectrum, drum rolls, analogue synths, and even the lions roar combine to devastating effect. The flip side, No More Games, initially suggests a more relaxed affair with its lush intro and plangent atmosphere. However, the dark clouds soon roll in and the track morphs in to an all out assault on the senses, underpinned by switching amens, cutting edge science and a string line straight from dark side. Natalie’s Rhodes begins serene and beautiful and unlike its B side companion remains that way. A truly diverse and unique effort from Sci Wax stalwart Dub One. DJ support from: Equinox (Scientific Wax / Planet Mu), Code (Subtle Audio / Nu Killa Beats Kru), B-Key (Mute 8 / Scientific Wax), Tom Ravenscroft (BBC Radio 6)

SW017 – Champa – Torment / Soldiers of the Cause / 5:40 – 12″ Vinyl
Scientific Wax is very proud to present three slices of breakbeat chaos from label debutont, Champa B. First up, Torment fuses influences of Renegade Hardware and Metalheadz with Champa’s trademark sound to produce a post apocalyptic tear out that manages to effortlessly build from rolling breaks towards a deadly drop and back again. Soldiers of the Cause isn’t for the faint hearted. Dub samples, warping sub bass and Sci Wax’s trademark amen edits make for an intense dance-floor experience that leaves you too out of breath to shout “reload!”. 5:40 continues the reign of terror with brutal, switching breaks and eerie film sounds. Resistance is futile. DJ support from: Equinox (Scientific Wax / Planet Mu), Code (Subtle Audio / Nu Killa Beats Kru), Dub One (Scientific Wax), B-Key (Mute 8), Tom Ravenscroft (BBC Radio 6)

HES023CD – Pangaea – Release – CD
“Do your thing, just make sure you’re ahead of the game”, warns ‘Game’, the opening salvo of Release, Pangaea’s new double EP for Hessle Audio. It’s a statement of intent for the entire record, reflecting the increasingly idiosyncratic nature of his music. Release’s eight tracks are entities unto themselves, each a natural evolutionary continuation of the rough and rolling pirate radio techno he began to culture on last year’s Hex and Inna Daze 12″s. Since his early releases, Pangaea’s music has expanded to reflect the growing diversity of dancefloors, reaching outward to integrate jungle, hardcore, techno and house into its rhythmic axis. The result is an incendiary hybrid form rooted in UK hardcore traditions, where ruffneck MC chatter, static-addled voices and sinewy melodies slip in and out of earshot like ghosts channelled from raves past. These base materials are put to a variety of different uses across Release’s length. Foremost among them is a swung and sub-heavy vision of UK techno, informed by a love of pirate radio and soundsystem music. So instead of remaining locked to a four-to-the-floor pulse, rhythms are splayed outwards into vortices – swirling assemblages of kicks, woodblocks and shrapnel that weave in and around one another. ‘Majestic 12′ explodes from the blocks at blistering speed, repeatedly switching in intensity across its length. Hi-hats keep time above roiling kickdrums on ‘Trouble’ and the aptly titled ‘Time Bomb’, which detonates with a billowing thud at the start of each bar. Other tracks touch on ideas familiar from Pangaea’s earlier music, but twist them almost beyond recognition. Both ‘Game’ and the ‘Release’ are raw steppers’ tracks, but ruder and more abrasive than anything he’s released to date, while ‘Middleman’ offsets a halfstep shuffle with warm brassy melodies. Release saves its largest curveball for last, though, with the seething ambient of ‘High’, whose murky surfaces are pockmarked by bitcrushed screams. As co-head of Hessle Audio alongside Pearson Sound and Ben UFO, Pangaea’s exploratory approach on Release also reflects the attitude that’s characterised both his and his label’s approach so far. As dubstep has fallen away, they have refused to simply follow many contemporaries into straightforward house and techno territory. Instead they take their influences as jumping-off points from which to explore, a method that’s led them along new and distinctive pathways in ever-noisier surroundings. Release is no exception – the building blocks used in its construction may be recognisable, but they work in a way you might not have heard before.

HS003 – Mia Dora, HaHaHa & Raksha – Ill-Defined – 12″ Vinyl
For our third release, we welcome back the collaborative efforts of our three family members Mia Dora, HaHaHa & Raksha. Joining forces once again, they depart from the awkward rhythms and stuttered arrangements of their first joint outing and instead offer up a slab of relentless, dance floor shattering techno. From the opening,  an almost hypnotic drum pattern comprised of both live and synthesised sounds fills the track with atmosphere and instills a real sense of urgency in the listener. The moment the bassline is introduced, however, the purpose of Ill-defined becomes clear – to bring your warehouse party crashing to it’s knees one drop at a time. On the flip,  the ever adept Dam Mantle has take time to offer up what must be described as a re-edit in the truest sense of the word. Extending and re-imagining the track in his own unique way, he opens by somehow adding an extra sense of menace to the already unnerving original. As it grows, things move in a completely different direction and the final sexed up, key driven crescendo leaves you wondering how you got there in the end. DJ & radio support from BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM, Sinden, Sei A, Clouds, Jackmaster, Mary Anne Hobbs, Joe Goddard, Eats Everything, Dubbel Dutch, Toddla T, Tomb Crew, MJ Cole, Hannah Holland, Optimo, Sonic Router, Mash, All Caps, Greenmoney, Lone and more.

CHST022 – Tunnidge – Brixton Bass EP – 12″ Vinyl x 2
As one of Dubstep’s perennial heavy-hitters, the name Tunnidge has become synonymous with the suffocating levels of sub-bass ever present in his beats. October sees him step up to the plate again with the Brixton Bass EP, featuring four tracks of weapons-grade sound system punishment that will rock you from your chest right down to your feet. The title track ‘Brixton Bass’ kicks things off with a drop like a tonne of bricks straight to the face, accompanied with a grinding synth attack on your senses and a heaving, club-destroying bassline to give you a taste of things to come. ‘Empty Spaces’ is a low-slung and snarling roller, bristling with pent up energy and deliberate, probing kick drums that punch through your speakers like a young Mike Tyson. There is no let up with Wardrum, as it surges forward with jolting drum patterns and tough, industrial synths to keep your ribs rattling. The mood deepens on ‘Dark Future’ as Tunnidge creates a tense and malevolent atmosphere with a vivid technicolor backdrop of melody, vibrant drum samples and guttural growls of low frequency. Supported by the whole Chestplate gang and some of the Dubstep community’s biggest DJs, this is weighty sound system design at its best and perhaps the heaviest collection of beats to emerge out of Tunnidge’s studio yet.

MINDSET012 – Elsewhere – Trippin EP – 12″ Vinyl
Continuing in a strong and revitalised form that has seen widespread recognition for releases from Synkro, Troy Gunner, Szare and Stickman, Mindset Records return with a debut 12” for longtime friend of the label, Elsewhere. Hailing from the same rural locale as sometime production partner Stickman, Elsewhere’s infinitely technical productions bear the hallmarks of a studio obsessive, with production values of a higher level helping to deliver three tracks of a unique quality. With productions informed partly by seminal trips to London to stand in front of DMZ soundsytems, Elsewhere reworks the dystopian dread and power of that sound into something entirely new, with lead track Trippin already finding its way into the record bags of ∆kkord, Lone, Troy Gunner and more. Bott Bott displays intense dynamics with a smartly deployed vocal and a ruthless subbass underpinning a ferocious UK funky influenced drumtrack whilst The Espers comes with alternating slices of rude UKG swagger and some subtle atmospheric work.

HF035 – Shelter Point – Forever For Now – 12″ Vinyl
Up next on Scuba’s Hotflush Recordings is the stunning debut EP ‘Forever For Now’ from 20 year-old duo Shelter Point. Through the use of field recordings, upright pianos, their own chopped and screwed vocals and a varied palette of synths, the pair have created a lush and elegant four track love letter that’s bound to make their contemporaries stand up and take note. ‘Braille’ sets the scene, its wistful, haunting vocals delicately slinking along to emotive and complex analogue synths, only slightly changing course on the vibrating and discordant 80’s inspired ‘Hold On Me’. On the flip is the title track, a compelling and experimental piano ballad, rich with vinyl crackle and a bittersweet lyrical flow (‘forever burned your picture in my mind’) followed by the pop-inspired ‘Sleep Easy’, a sweetly composed bedroom soul production kitted out with filtered synths and dubbed out atmospherics. A unique and memorable debut from a very bright new talent, Shelter Point is here to stay.

LTECH002 – BMB – Where Pail Limbs Lie – 12″ Vinyl
‘Where Pail Limbs Lie’ is the unexpected but none the less welcome return of British Murder Boys as BMB. BMB is a collaboration between Anthony ‘Surgeon’ Child and Karl ‘Regis’ O’Connor. Equally notorious for their explosive live/DJ performances as for their productions, their powerful brand of industrial techno – rhythmically complex, emboldened by visceral noise and a dub sensibility derived from the Cabaret Voltaire and Mark Stewart and the Mafia school of confrontational electronics. Individually both O’Connor and Child have been cornerstones of the British techno scene for over 18 years, hugely influential and uncompromising. For the first time with this release for Liberation Technologies BMB have recorded outside their own fiercely independent network.

HBOOG03 – Fedka the Irritant – Fire at Will EP – 12″ Vinyl
For the first solo EP on Horror Boogie, Fedka the Irritant steps up, after his outstanding track on Horror Boogie 01.  Fedka the Irritant is probably best known as the trombonist in the excellent band Pest (Ninja Tune), alongside Ben Pest (Panic Bridge, Victim, Bonus Round). He’s also a seriously original and versatile producer in his own right. He has released on Panic Bridge, alongside the other Pest members and his “trombone techno” live sets are something to behold.  Here, he drops four varied tracks, starting with the behemoth ‘Words for Friends’. A heavy slice of wonky techno, with a big kick and rasping synth. Next up is One Uncertain Eyebrow. A building, funky, fuzzy acid-laced track that drops harder and harder as it goes on.  On side B, calypso-flavoured, jazzed up ‘Stick It’ progresses on to a become a warbling bass effort with a smooth hip-hop vocal.  Last but not least, is ‘You Only Die Once’, another funk-laden monster, with a killer slap bass line.
