Makoto – Kosa (feat. Keeno)

Buy or Stream ‘Tomodachi Sessions’ here: https://Makoto.lnk.to/TomodachiSessionsyc

As one of the founders of Japan’s drum & bass culture, Makoto is a man who needs little introduction. On his sixth studio album, ‘Tomodachi Sessions’, he presents 15-tracks of exquisite, sun-drenched drum & bass soul. Each and every track is a collaboration with a close friend, that has played a part in his twenty-year career, with the likes of DJ Marky, S.P.Y, Bop, MC Conrad, Pola & Bryson, Degs, Karina Ramage and more.

The uplifting summer number, ‘Shine On Through’ is a collaboration with the young breakthrough producer Mountain from Osaka, Japan. Makoto’s signature sound is brought into 2019, soaked in a warm rolling bassline, energetic synths and topped off with vocals from the outstanding singer/songwriter Karina Ramage.

The instrumental masterpiece ‘Kosa’ features Med School’s orchestral maverick Keeno and is the perfect combination of powerful soul, epic strings and dynamic drumwork.

‘Morning Sunrise’, is a majestic dose of drum & bass and is the team effort of Makoto, Danny Wheeler and G Force. It also brings in the vocal powerhouse Blu James, also known from the Basement Jaxx classic ‘Red Alert’.

Having gained respect for the quality of his music since the days of LTJ Bukem’s Good Looking Records, Makoto has gone from strength to strength with an impressive discography that includes seminal classics like ‘Golden Girl’ ft. MC Conrad. Makoto can be found at a number of events and festivals this summer, including Hospitality In The Park 2019, Sun & Bass, Liquicity, Standon Calling, and more.

Urbandawn – White Canvas

Buy or stream here:
https://urbandawn.lnk.to/SleepingAwakeEPyb

Straight outta’ Sao Paulo, the funkmeister and production paragon Urbandawn has delivered a D+B quartet that’s ready to drop jaws and start wars. The ‘Sleeping Awake’ EP see’s everything we’ve grown to love about this Brazilian badman, soaked in musical brilliance with raw power and funk.

No messing around, ‘Roundabout’ likens to a bear punch in the face with a knuckle duster. This monolith stepper’s incredibly complex production will leave heads rolling across the globe. All producers take note, the devil’s in the detail.

The rampantly jazzy weapon ‘Sleeping Awake’ is as if LTJ Bukem, London Elektricity and Noisia got shoved into the Hadron Collider – playful with funk and exuding nothing but sheer brilliance. Rolling straight through is ‘White Canvas’, a crispy sub-shaker that draws upon the full 360 of the D+B spectrum. This techy masterpiece is poised for the dancefloor with energy levels high and quality levels higher. Seeing things home is ‘Gloria’ with a harmonious fusion of exquisite chords and empyreal vocals. A rich progression slowly fades out to see out this compendium of excellence.

L-Side – Dark Matter

Our next London event – 27th September: http://bit.ly/SNB-RA // attend on Facebook: http://bit.ly/SNB-FB

Buy ‘Dark Matter’ – http://bit.ly/plv076­-V_Store

After smashing out an awesome mix for Chronic Rollers Vol. 3 earlier this year, Brazilian producer/DJ L-Side returns to the fold with his stunning ‘Love Vibration EP’ as V Recordings prepares to release his debut album.

Starting his music career as a Hip Hop producer in his native city of São Paulo and taking his influence from the more soulful side of the sound, he became hypnotised by the sounds of Drum & Bass and gained fans in the scene such as DJ Marky, Bryan Gee, LTJ Bukem, Bailey, Doc Scott, among others. L-Side signed to the V camp in 2016, and has sneaked out a few choice cuts whilst working on his debut album.

The ‘Love Vibration EP’ is the perfect mixture of funk, atmosphere, soul, minimalistic in places and deep all the way through. Opening track ‘Dark Matter’ starts as the EP means to go on with a brooding bassline and heavy drums.

R1C0 – Lave (Free Download)

Download for free: http://bit.ly/SNB-019

Skankandbass is dedicated towards the official promotion of record labels and artists in the world of drum & bass music. Since inception in 2010, Skankandbass has unearthed some of the freshest talents in the scene and has opened many doors for unsigned artists. Now, a few years in to the game, Skankandbass decides to take on the role of a record label to put together a series of free download singles which aims to further help spread the work of the best unsigned, newcomer artists who deserve more recognition.

Introducing Henry Skinner aka R1C0, working out of London, UK, Henry produces drum & bass, with strong elements of liquid and vocals, but a wide range of styles from deep and soulful, to dark and steppy. Growing up in the south west of the UK, Henry has been producing music since the age of 14 and released his debut EP ‘On the Horizon’ on Subculture music, with follow up releases on Soul Deep Recordings.

R1C0 is heavily influenced by the early pioneers of drum & bass, such as LTJ Bukem, Goldie and Dom & Roland, producers such as Break, S.P.Y, BCEE and artists from many other genres including Burial, Massive Attack, Little Dragon, and Cinematic Orchestra.

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.
