Serum – Ramparts

Follow Skankandbass on Spotify and listen to its playlists: http://bit.ly/SNBSpotify

Buy ‘Ramparts’ – http://bit.ly/2omtqbG

On first listen, it’s no surprise that Serum has received support from the likes of Andy C, Friction, Bryan G, Fabio, Shy FX, Dillinja, Ray Keith, DJ Marky and many more crucial tastemakers. With records like title-track ‘Black Metal’ doing damage, alongside its clinking metallic hi-hats and winding bassline, Serum’s sound was certainly created for the clubs. Punchy drums and crackling bass helps to underpin his signature, a staple production style which has made him notorious. Then comes ‘Ramparts’, crashing forward on clattering breaks and an undeniable groove which sifts mercilessly through the mix. Serum delivers blow after blow, with kicking drums and distorted sonic creating a disjointed roller which becomes more imposing with every layer.

Flaco – Set You Off

Follow Skankandbass on Spotify and listen to its playlists: http://bit.ly/SNBSpotify

Buy ‘Set You Off’ – http://btprt.dj/2oh0wx6

Following on from the successful releases of Specific and Atom in the second half of 2016, Influence Records kicks off 2017 with the third and final part of the Fort Knox series. First up, we have a producer that has built up a reputation as being one of the best producers of liquid drum and bass in the game. Having released music on labels such as: Liquid V, Chronic, Good Looking and Co:Lab, we are excited to have Flaco make his debut on Influence Records.

‘Set You Off’ is a classic from the late naughties and if you attended Swerve you will know that this track was a firm favourite with Fabio. Lovely pads introduce the track before the main breakbeat and vocal snippets set the pace. A warm bass takes you on a journey and that saxophone hook keeps the listener engaged throughout. Flaco switches style with a half-time, hip hop influenced breakdown which drops back into the 174 bpm tempo that we know and appreciate him for. This track works well on the dancefloor or just appreciating the music in the comfort of your home. Supported by LTJ Bukem, Marky, Fabio, Bailey, Flaco, Stunna and Aaron Jay.

Satl – Here With Me

Buy: http://lnk.to/NewDirections

Sgn:Ltd delivers another significant debut artist as Satl comes straight out of Poland with a beautifully crafted EP full to bursting with blissfully soulful drum & bass. With only a handful of releases to his name so far Satl has already had support from the likes of Friction, DJ Marky, LTJ Bukem and Fabio to whom Satl pays an ode to on the EP with ‘Creative Source’. Without a doubt, one to watch.

“Creating the EP was really natural and easy process. In past couple of months I’ve spent a lot of time outside, in a cottage near a lake, surrounded by the sounds of nature – that really inspired me to make something fresh. The best part of making the music was that I have explored new direction of my production and I hope you can hear that when you press play on this EP.” Satl 2016

Artificial Intelligence – Is This Real

Buy: http://bit.ly/1WyBS7v

BIG EP. Is This Real harks back the hey day of Fabio’s Swerve weekdays, rolling and soulful. It has a lovely female vox that plays out over its reversed counterpart. The bass is an interplay of the live sounding mid and deep sub bass with shuffling drums and dream like pads providing the soundscape.
