Break – Soldier

Buy: https://t.co/VzIU5glz6F

During a career that has spanned over a decade, if there’s one producer in the world of drum & bass who constantly and consistently delivers top quality output then you need look no further than one name: Break. When it comes to A-list beat makers it doesn’t really get much bigger. Owner of Symmetry Recordings with an exceptional catalogue of music spread across some of the scenes most respected labels, Sigma and Life Recordings are extremely excited and proud to present their latest single from the man himself. Soldier switches up the mood yet still retains that heavyweight trademark Break sound. Shuffling two step breaks and gut wrenching low end, a staple of much of his material, give it more of a darker edge.

Soldier is reminiscent of Break’s material on DNAudio and is proof that when it comes to the raw basics of this music: just drums, just bass… there is no one who does it better. Let it be known that Soldier is definitely one for the heads and those bass stabs on the second drop. You have been warned.

With the stamp of approval coming from one of drum & bass’s highly regarded musicians it’s more evidence that Life Recordings is moving in the right direction and there’s more exciting stuff to come. For now though… it’s time to Groove With It.

Mob Tactics – Alcatraz

Buy: http://btprt.dj/UwSoq2

It’s time for some no nonsense drum & bass on MTA Records, courtesy of Mob Tactics with ‘The Answer’ EP. The duo seem to be a name on people’s lips more and more of late. Already renowned for their own inimitable style of techy – yet very funky, dance-floor orientated drum & bass, the duo appear to be going from strength-to-strength with each release, and ‘The Answer’ EP takes them in to a musical world which they have not yet explored.

‘The Answer’ EP is set to turn some heads, with the tracks already firm staples in the sets of Chase & Status, Andy C & Friction to name but a few, and the demand for them on the DJ circuit is rapidly gaining momentum. ‘The Answer’ EP will be released as a Beatport exclusive 28th July.

Cern & Dabs – Alter Ego

Buy: http://smarturl.it/DIS082

With two stellar EPs for Dispatch already under his belt, the next release sees the Italian virtuoso Dabs return to the label with “The Constant EP”, featuring two exclusive and original productions, plus another two fresh takes on previous Dabs tracks for Dispatch.

Kicking off where the last EP left off, Dabs has reworked previous title track “Objection” into a neck snapping menace of a VIP, with bleeps of the original jittering fervently over thumping new low ends. Following this is the next collaboration with Cern, ahead of his own album for Dispatch. With an air of extra-terrestrial isolation to the start, “Alter Ego” showcases the pair’s incredible technical prowess, with a fierce and uncompromising stomper for the dancefloor.

Need For Mirrors – Food

Buy: http://bit.ly/HZN078_beatport

Need For Mirrors head up Horizons 078 with the ‘Food EP’. A symposium of sound that grips you from the very start. A array of brutally hard hitting elements dominate the tracks, whilst not detracting from the musicality and invention of them. With plenty of nods to the past, in particular to the golden era of tech step tunes in the late 90’s – this is a modern take on a classic recipe. ‘

Food’ : Title track ‘Food’ blends a big rolling sub layer with intricate drum shuffles and layered pads to bring out a slightly deeper flavour. With interesting vocal samples sprinkled around, ‘Food’ is a reflective yet powerful piece of music.

Once again Need For Mirror’s demonstrates his obvious talents over the course of the 5 tracks for Horizons. Uncompromising in approach yet still retaining musical elements. Full of swing, groove and energy, this is quintessential Need For Mirrors.

Annix – Take It Back

Buy: http://realdnb.com/1mAoMTO

Annix – aka Konichi and Decimal Bass – are currently one of the most exciting prospects in dnb and this month sees their latest release for Hype and Pascal – the much anticipated ‘Past and Future’ EP.

‘Take It Back’ is a spluttering tune that spits fireworks in your face and Decimal Bass ‘Near Me’ is an awesome switch up of rough and smooth sounds. Finally the wall smashing ‘Entrance’ from Konichi rounds this ep off with a big exit.
