Hugh Hardie – Learning To Fly

Buy or stream ‘Learning To Fly’ here: https://HughHardie.lnk.to/learningtoflyyc

Soulful selector and skateboarder extraordinaire Hugh Hardie is back with his latest EP, ‘Learning To Fly’, consisting of four sublime cuts, hot on the heels of his recent ‘7 Tunes In 7 Days’ lockdown project. Produced from his home studio in Bristol, Hugh’s new release features collaborations with DJ Marky and singer/songwriter Cimone.

Named after the Indian mountain city in West Bengal, opening track ‘Darjeeling’ is a faultless embodiment of Hugh’s trademark jazz-inspired groove. Filled with transcendent piano chord progressions, rolling breaks and an enchanting upright bassline, ‘Darjeeling’ is a classic example of the soulful liquid beats the Bristol-based DJ has become known for.

‘Said & Done’ sees the commanding vocal talents of Cimone take the lead as Hugh Hardie and DJ Marky team up on the buttons to create a smile-inducing bouncer drenched in feel-good summer vibrations. Infectious descending bass wobbles lay the foundations below swinging piano licks and sharp-edged, shuffling percussions. With DJ Marky being an avid supporter of Hugh and Cimone’s initial link up on ‘Raindrops’, it only made sense for the trio to jump on a track together.

‘Learning To Fly’ with graceful strings and arpeggiated plucks, leads seamlessly into a crisp drum track and driving bassline. Hugh’s delicate yet powerful and uplifting pieces of music explore a broad range of emotions, taking the listener on a stimulating musical journey.

Drawing for original jungle sounds whilst staying true to his soul-heavy style, ‘Late Night Harp’ does exactly what it says on the tin as captivating harp melodies and acoustic guitar riffs are infused with fizzing sub-heavy basslines and steamrolling breakbeats generating a no-holds-barred banger.

His ‘Learning To Fly’ EP is the second project to emerge from Hugh Hardie in the 2020 lockdown. His previous ‘7 Tunes In 7 Days’ extended EP saw him create a track from scratch every day over the course of a week, and received support from DJs across the board including the legendary LTJ Bukem. With the success of both his ‘Shadows & Silhouettes’ and ‘Colourspace’ LPs under his belt, Hugh’s dedication to ensuring that soul remains the main ingredient in his productions is cementing him as a staple figure in the world of liquid drum & bass.

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

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.

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.

Satl – Sunshine

Skankandbass returns to London for their second event, 8th March 2017. Attend on Facebook: http://bit.ly/SNB2-FB
Buy tickets on UKF: http://bit.ly/SNB-UKF2 // Buy tickets on RA: http://bit.ly/SNB-RA2

Released 20th February 2017.

Drum & Bass has always been an interesting phenomenon in Poland. Although not often attributed as being one of its primary bases in Europe, it’s produced some of the most exciting talent to come forward across the scene. And one of these artists is 20 years old 174bpm stalwart Adrian Rybka, who also goes by his pseudonym Satl. Having had regular support from the likes of heavyweight DJs Fabio & Grooverider, Friction, LTJ Bukem, Artifical Intelligence and DJ Marky, he’s become a staple on the European club circuit.

Having already had releases on the likes of Innerground, SGN:LTD, Integral and more, ‘From Time’ sees him move onto the Soul Trader imprint. Alongside collaborator Harland, his first offering ‘Alone’ takes you into sub-terranean levels, moving away from any of the more commercial sounds which have littered drum & bass and instead provides an intimidating soundscape. If this track is anything to go by, neither Satl nor Harland are prepared to wind down their production standard and instead go in all guns blazing, with smashing kick and a sub bass that ricochets from start to finish.
