Rene LaVice – ‘Drop It’

Rene LaVice – ‘Drop It’

With the New Year beginning and having already released two critically acclaimed albums, Rene LaVice is ready to unleash yet another phenomenal LP into a discography which has grown him a formidable fan base. Following a slew of successes throughout 2017, which saw a hard grafted career path lead him even further under the spotlight, his singles on groundbreaking drum & bass imprint Ram Records have reignited the excitement which surrounded the artist when he was first signed to the label. As well as the announcement of his tastemaker Radio 1 slot, he’s levelled up since his appearance on the scene and continues to push the boundaries with every movement he’s made since.

Forthcoming in its lead up is ‘Drop it’, a dancefloor lead anthem which focuses on an epic build up and an even more cataclysmic breakdown. The track steps keenly into live drum instrumentals and slowly ticking beats, before Rene’s own vocal sample drives you deep through the track’s heart. The tell-tale Rene LaVice snare then kicks into play, before you’re weaved through an effortlessly tight mixdown, taking on hit after hit of unadulterated bass peddles. The producer reasserts himself as one of the most enigmatic and creative artists within the current climate, drawing on a host of influences to fully expose the music he draws inspiration from. ‘Drop it’ warbles like a siren, manifesting the image of all-out chaos when it’s launched from speaker stacks. Prepare yourself for the new sounds of Rene LaVice; 2018 has begun yet another epic chapter.

The album is pencilled for early summer and fans both old and new will be waiting patiently for the successor of ‘Play with Fire’. Set to be released on Ram Records, a label which has been twenty five years strong in the game and boasts some of the scene’s finest, it’s the perfect home for yet another game-changing Rene LaVice record.

Obeisant & Victim ‘Evacuation’

Obeisant & Victim ‘Evacuation’

New Zealand dance music producer Obeisant proves that the genre has its roots stretched throughout drum & basses furthest corners, whilst never watering down the production levels which have developed since its inception. And the producer’s list of influences is just as far fledged, having studied music for over twelve years whilst releasing on some of its underground’s most constructive imprints. They’re about to add to their back catalogue of labels with Ram Records’ sister-label Program, who’s helped pioneer the dark and twisted sounds which are prominent across the global circuit. The four tracks they offer up reignites the excitement which they’re shrouded in, nodding to why the New Year is likely to be the biggest yet in the history of Obeisant’s career.

From the minimal, percussive vibes of ‘ApiaKa’, to his collaboration ‘Evacuation’ with fellow Kiwi Victim, there’s a host of gears which continue to switch up throughout the EP’s entirety. If you’re a relatively new listener of Obeisant, ‘ApiaKa’ is the way to align yourself with his sound, one which moves you through his ingeniously constructed design whilst manifesting an understated yet forceful impact with each relaying pattern of pounding drum-lead undertows. ‘Evacuation’ is just as domineering with its intricate composition, bringing Victim onboard for a track which is sure to reverberate across speakers during the slickest of sets. And Obeisant’s next delivery ‘On Time’ pushes quickly stabbing beat flurries which flick between notes, drawing you into a climatic drop teetering you dangerously close to the edge before exploding on impact. It nods to the flipside of Obeisant’s repertoire and oozes with dancefloor appeal. ‘Hidden Voice’ brings the EP to a close, a track which bounces between each metallic break and adds an unstoppable addition to its track listing.
Obeisant is musically versatile and undeniably heavyweight, with each record highlighting why Program was so keen on adding him to their already groundbreaking roster.

Russia did it! Convenient scapegoat for almost any trouble

The US National Security Adviser has his knives out for the New Year – with a call to reveal what he describes as ‘insidious’ Russian meddling. H. R. McMaster says that ‘pulling back the curtain” might be a vital first step to prevent further interference.

The Russia-blaming trend hit full throttle almost a year ago with the release of a US intelligence report that kept the momentum going throughout 2017.
