Ed:it – Flake

Buy: http://btprt.dj/1IANjFC

Enter Subtitles Music. Run by Teebee, one half of Calyx and Teebee, it’s a label that’s managed to survive the transition from old world to new in fine form. They’ve been been around since the year 2000, playing host to everyone from Break to Fanu to Ulterior Motive and pretty much anyone in between. Their sound has edged towards the heavier end of the spectrum, nicely interspersed with some deeper, more experimental vibes.

In comes Ed:it. Flake’s the more techy of the two tunes on the single. The percussions that eponymous thick, deep and rounded perc that’s really in vogue at the moment, and its sparring partner is a gently undulating bassline with the whole thing accentuated by slightly ethereal, delicate pad work. You’d be forgiven for think that this was just a deep roller, but it actually has quite a lot of development in its 4 minutes 17 run time. It snaps to attention halfway through the verse, gaining a wicked cheeky edge, set off by some subtle drum edits. It’s bold, but subtle. Perfect A side material.

Klax – Amnesia

Donate to download: http://bit.ly/1MvMTLr

A Critical Music charity fundraising album project for Oxfam’s refugee crisis appeal, featuring tracks donated by Current Value, Enei, Foreign Concept, Halogenix, Hyroglifics, Klax, Sam Binga & Signal. Over the last two Christmas’ the team at Critical huddled together and decided that rather than let some sought after unreleased music sit idle on their hard drives they would put it to use and offer people the chance to download the tracks in return for donating something to charity.

This year is no different and we at Critical have all gone through the vaults and put an album together, again for an important cause. We have chosen Oxfam’s Refugee Crisis Appeal which is something close to all of our hearts. Millions of people have been forced to flee their homes, to run for their lives and risk the safety of their families. Oxfam urgently need to help more people in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and closer to home in Europe, too. You can read more about the appeal here – http://bit.ly/1NC8wOe

100% of the proceeds go directly to the charity.
Please give generously and enjoy the music!

Merry Christmas from all at Critical Music

Mob Tactics – Jaw Breaker

Buy: http://btprt.dj/1Jjh1cT

Technicians at the powerful EATBRAIN label have spent the last year researching ways to step beyond the now legendary TALES OF THE UNDEAD LP chapter of their history, roaming the lands to uncover new technologies to deliver the future of electronic music into our hands. This journey took them to the theory of the mirror universe – the implications of which are about to invert the DnB spectrum, deeply disrupting the minds and ears of the vast Eatbrain audience.

Delivering 18 tracks x 2 across both releases and featuring scene giants such as OPTIV & BTK, MAZTEK, STATE OF MIND, MOB TACTICS, DUB ELEMENTS and MINDSCAPE, this is an LP sets a bold statement. Noisia-favourite DISPROVE makes his debut on the label – with Eatbrain fans having been ravenously piecing together fragments of his outstanding contribution FRQNCS to hear it in its entirety. He appears alongside a diverse array of well-respected Eatbrain artists such as L 33, QO, SIGNS, TELEKENESIS and many more. This backed by hard-hitting material from newly emerging artists and label boss JADE himself, who delivers new solo material with ‘They Are Mutants!’ that cuts to the core of the heavy groove of the Eatbrain sound.
