Buy: http://bit.ly/1CjlJZ7

The View is the most anticipated drum n bass track of 2015 and for good reason, it is pure and unadulterated soul, the likes of which is rare in this day & age. LSB provides the track while Tyler Daley gives us a heart wrenching chorus. DRS lays everything on the line with his bars and the honesty shines through without question.

Following the hugely successful debut of our ‘Dispatch Dubplate’ label, with the first two vinyl releases selling out across all stores, we’re proud to welcome #3 in the series, led predominantly by label favourite DLR. Much like the previous Dubplates, each vinyl will showcase a thicker set 180 grams in weight, hand numbered (1 – 300), hand-stamped, signed, with an added label sticker pack with all 300; never to be re-pressed.

Setting off the release, we’re pleased to release our most in-demand dub from the past year; the mighty Break & DLR rework everyone has waited for – “Murmur VIP”. With the original first appearing in 2012 on Octane & DLR’s “Method In The Madness” album, the Break & DLR VIP has revitalized the initial buzz of an already popular track, in spectacular fashion. Causing havoc on dancefloors worldwide, it has already seen heavy rotational support by Friction on his BBC Radio 1 show (with 6 plays on the show in total to date).

Boston – Catch Your Breath

Buy: http://btprt.dj/1Bj4tS2

Marking the 20th single on Symmetry, Boston returns with his second fantastic release. A deeper and slightly darker vibe for Boston, Catch Your Breath, lures you in with a summery but bluesy intro featuring Boston’s skills on the guitar and keys. Dropping with heavy sub bass and a techy groove, this track keeps the deepness with breathy pumping bass and sound textures, epic but refined this track exudes class and finesse.

Safire – Deep Architect ft. Morph

Buy: http://bit.ly/DeepArchitect

Shogun sister label SGN smash their way into 2015 with an EP from Australian drum and bass producer Safire. The Melbourne resident has been making waves throughout the scene over the last couple of years with releases on acclaimed independents Dispatch Records, Invisible Recordings, Mindtech and now SGN.

The A-side, Deep Architect, featuring Safire’s partner in crime Morph, is an up-front neuro groove with dark and techy interludes. Safire deconstructs this highly technical track: “The concept behind Deep Architect represents us overloading the computer beyond its capabilities. Logic brings up an overload message reading ‘Deep Architecture’. Quite a lot of work went into the tune with a lot of rendering of tracks; we counted it to be around 300 tracks bounced down into 100 upon completion.”

Additional Quote:
“SGN has released countless quality tracks released over the years and I’m really glad to be a part of it.”

The Classified series on Total Science’s mighty CIA Records drops in heavy with four killer cuts. This first outing in the series sees some of the labels long time stalwarts & one of the finest new blood step up to the plate.

Tantrum Desire – Shuffle

Buy: http://smarturl.it/TECH005CD

Yes, it really has been fifteen years since Future Tech (aka Drumsound & Bassline Smith) signalled the beginning of the Technique Recordings odyssey with their eponymous debut collaboration. Since then, the drum and bass sound has spread its tendrils from the dark corners of the underground into the limelight of mainstream appreciation. And Technique has been at the forefront of that evolution all the way. So, here’s an LP to show the world exactly what a decade and a half among the top tier of D&B labels sounds like.

Label heads Drumsound & Bassline Smith take pole position, dropping straight into the drama of the Friction-supported “Spring Heel Jack”. Then comes another of Technique’s most recognisable acts, Tantrum Desire with the low-down funk of “Shuffle”.

Vandera feat. Lickz – Ring The Alarm (Instrumental)

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

Expressions by Fokuz returns with a marvelous 12” record by liquid stalwart Vandera. He delivers three diverse but excellent tracks with plenty of groove for those who like their beats with soul. ”Ring The Alarm” features live guitar licks played over sultry rhode chords that could remind one of early Makoto. Next up is ”Sparkin Up” that has a slightly deeper, dancefloor edge with techy stabs and rolling, powerfull drums. Last but not least ”Make Believe” featuring Alicia Romero brings us a bit of melancholy with heartfelt vocals and soaring bass sounds. Best to pick this baby up, you won’t regret it.
