DRS & Dynamite – Back & Forth (feat. S.P.Y) Official Video

Vocal veterans DRS & Dynamite present ‘Playing In The Dark’, the debut LP from their collaborative project released on Hospital Records. These two pivotal figures, who have stood at the forefront of drum & bass for over two decades, have now teamed up with an array of globally respected producers including Calibre, Roni Size, Nu:Tone, S.P.Y, DJ Zinc, Chimpo and DJ Marky, to create an uncharted 16-track LP. Following on from the success of the pair’s first single ‘Fix It All (feat. London Elektricity)’, sit back and get ready to embark on the lyrical journey of a lifetime.

Getting straight to work, ‘Back & Forth’ sees the flows of DRS & Dynamite effortlessly bounce off each other over a relentless S.P.Y instrumental. Cold bars and a fierce bassline set the track up to be timeless, that will ignite sound systems worldwide. Following suit, rave legend DJ Zinc lends his vast depths of experience for ‘Get Down’, a high energy roller with bouncing vocal hooks, energising drums and that signature catchy low-end that Zinc’s become so famed for.

Affirming his status as a true mic champion, DRS demonstrates an ability to complement his heavy hitting flows with dynamic vocal melodies in title track ‘Playing In The Dark (feat. The Vanguard Project)’, coupled with Dynamite’s sharp and meaningful lyrics, they explore the importance and inequality surrounding MC and lyricist culture within D+B. Reminiscent of their love for pirate radio, ‘Highrise FM’ sees DRS & Dynamite reflect on memories of spreading music and good vibes which still shines brightly to this day. The track is produced by none other than the liquid-funk, ambient and downtempo pioneer Calibre. Leading figure of the jungle and drum & bass movement Roni Size also steps up for ‘Not The Fakes Ones’. This remarkable link up of three legends within the scene culminates in a truly up front and in your face record, exactly what we’ve come to expect from the Reprazent pioneer.

DRS first came across Dynamite during his time in Roni Size’s Bristol collective Reprazent, the winners of the 1997 Mercury Prize ‘Album Of The Year’, now showing full circle movements in 2020. ‘Playing In The Dark’ pays respect to this collaboration and the combination of styles which is signalled so clearly throughout DRS and Dynamite’s sound. As Dynamite explains that “the producers [brought] their pallets” for himself and DRS “to paint on”, the duo were able to convey their message, history and wisdom in one of the most boundary pushing projects that drum & bass has seen.

Mitekiss – Tonic

Buy or steam ‘Object To Push’ here:
https://www.Mitekiss.lnk.to/objectstopushyc

Since the release of his debut album ‘Crate Six Seven’, that received support from liquid pioneers Technimatic, Makoto, Etherwood and BCee, Mitekiss has been cooking up his latest venture with Hospital Records, the ‘Objects To Push’ EP. Consisting of four sublime tracks that explore the soulful, deeper domains of drum & bass. The musicality and versatility of Mitekiss’ production are brought to light once more, drawing for his love of jazz, disco and 174 beats.

‘Matter (feat. Vonné)’ eases in with elegant melodies, soothing piano flourishes and the eloquent vocal hooks of London based singer-songwriter Vonné. Named after dark matter, “which represents the lyrics ‘gravity pulling me under’”, explains Mitekiss. Smooth liquid-jazz bubbler ‘Tonic’ follows, as hypnotising pads and sophisticated piano licks rest delicately upon a blues-style upright bassline and rolling breakbeats.

Teaming up with Bristol’s Ruth Royall, ‘Magic’ adds a touch of undeniable euphoria to the EP. A classic feel-good drum & bass anthem that pays homage to Mitekiss’ love for all things uplifting and heartfelt. Last but certainly not least, ‘Charter’ brings the EP to a close. Darker, spellbinding atmospherics and hard hitting bass stabs are a clear demonstration of the depths of the EP.

With ‘Objects To Push’ Mitekiss has continued to develop his soulful, liquid-jazz sound, further cementing his unique standing in drum & bass territory. The successes of his contributions to the scene include his regular ‘Mitekast’ podcast and weekly ‘Rhythm Roulette’ tutorial series, as well as releases on Shogun Audio, Skankandbass and his own imprint Goldfat Records, that have seen Mitekiss appraised as a producer’s producer who is here to stay.

Keeno – Old School Lane

Buy or stream ‘Troopers Peak / Old School Lane’ here: https://Keeno.lnk.to/trooperslaneyc

After setting his 2020 story in motion with the stunning ‘I Wonder’, Keeno brings his trademark mastery of classical inspired drum & bass with ‘Troopers Peak’ and ‘Old School Lane’ – his debut release since becoming an official artist on Hospital Records, following the closure of sister label Med School. With his impressive back catalogue of albums ‘Life Cycle’, ‘All The Shimmering Things’ and ‘Futurist’, Keeno continues to champion the more refined and elegant side to drum & bass.

Opening with a stunning cinematic reprise, ‘Troopers Peak’ is a showcase of Keeno’s ability to fuse the worlds of classical music with drum & bass in this sublime piano driven number, that rounds off with beautiful string atmospherics. B-Side track ‘Old School Lane’ takes a darker path to the clean-edged A-Side, layered with grizzly synths and dramatic string work for a formidable stepper that’s in a class of its own.

Keeno carries the torch for emotive, orchestral drum & bass into the new decade with a dedicated following for his unique, distinctive productions and for hosting his own Bristol Mix Sessions podcast. He’s received support across the UK airwaves with plays across BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and 6Music plus Keeno’s technical prowess in the studio has seen extensive features in leading tech music publications Future Mag and Computer Mag. He also continues to set himself apart as a DJ with a worldwide demand across Europe and a mainstay presence at Hospitality shows including Hospitality Returns To The Dock for a special Med School Graduation B2B2B2B set with Etherwood, Whiney and Bop.

Thread – Away

↪ Download for free – http://bit.ly/SNB065

Skankandbass is dedicated towards the official promotion of record labels and artists in the world of drum & bass music. Since inception in 2009, Skankandbass has unearthed some of the freshest talents in the scene and has opened many doors for unsigned artists. Now, through Skankandbass Introducing we release a series of free download singles which aims to spread the work of the best unsigned, newcomer artists who deserve more recognition.

Since emerging into the drum and bass scene in 2017, Bristol based up-and-comer Dan Hancox aka Thread has quickly established himself a talent to watch. Alongside being label manager of Riddim Records, which he co-founded with fellow DJ Mascot last year, Thread has quietly made a name for himself with a series of solo releases and free downloads. Now he shows off his versatility on SNB065, with melodic soother ‘Away’ coupled with the club ready ‘When I Feel’.

Skankandbass is dedicated towards the official promotion of record labels and artists in the world of drum & bass music.

Now, through Skankandbass Introducing we release a series of free download singles which aims to spread the work of the best unsigned, newcomer artists who deserve more recognition.

After eighteen releases last year showcasing the best newcomer talent, our first single of 2020 picks up right where we left off with Josh Schofield aka Dedman. While the Bristol based talent has been gaining traction with a series of accomplished releases on up-and-coming labels, he properly came onto our radar last year with his excellent ‘Stockholm EP’ on Lost Recordings. On SNB063 he shows off his dark sound design on A-side ‘Jackals’, and recruits fellow newcomer LNO on the heavyweight ‘Morsel’.
