Telekinesis – Sleep

Out 9th March.

Slovenian Drum & Bass stalwarts Telekinesis are to kick off 2015 with a new five-track EP on Blackout NL. Scheduled for release on March 8th, the duo – comprising of producers Smooth and Markoman – return to the label for the first time since impressive 2013 EP ‘Judgement Day’.

Intro track ‘Bias’ – an unwavering onslaught of pounding bass – sets things up perfectly for title-track ‘Fight Club’, which delivers further punch with its hardbody drums and overpowering frequencies. Continuing the frenetic workout, both ‘Sleep’ and ‘Jab’, channel weighty kick-drums and quaking mid-range bass-lines before the distorted beats and deafening drums of ‘Bragger’ bring the EP to a close – neurofunk drum & bass at its finest.

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.”

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.

A short octave changing chord gets Into The Light underway before an urgent sounding phat kick and a huge cracking snare prime the track for the introduction of a full, thick, pounding, rhythmic bass. And with plenty of subtle background noises filling the track out, making this a big dance floor stepper, proper rolling vibes.

Opening with a sprawling, rich, atmospheric soundscape that although maintains the identity of the original takes it deeper and warmer. The tweaked sounds of the original combining with the new, whilst flickering high hats sit before the haunting and hanging vocal that dissolves away into the drop. An example of how to deliver clean but yet gritty drum programming reminiscent of classic MetalHeadz. Altered, enhanced and superbly re-licked for 2015
