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.

Ulterior Motive – M.I.R

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

The two minds from the south of the UK return with a 12″ that shows all-the prowess that you would expect from the pairing, an original track and much requested for the VIPs only fusing of previous works by Ulterior Motive.

Reminiscent of the other great techno influenced pairing Kemal & Rob Data. M.I.R stands for Make It Roll and so it does…Paranoia, tech and funk in one track. It’s a great mixing tune that is bursting with energy and Ulterior Motive’s trademark stabs, pulses and mid-range acrobatics keep the energy very high throughout.

Bass Brothers – A Little Mad

Buy: http://realdnb.com/alittlemad

Hype and Pascal present the new EP from Portuguese duo Bass Brothers, who are pretty much on fire right now. Title track ‘A Little Mad’ is freaky-cool: sampling ‘Psycho’ before the mid tempo breaks come in. Up next is ‘Blastin’ – which Annix dropped at Innovation in the Sun – and then ‘Bolivian Yeyo’ which is a dark and growling beast of a track.

Digital – Midnight Moves feat. Stepa (Trei Midday Mix)

Released 6th July 2014.

If you want a list of Digital’s achievements in the D&B game, well, unlucky, there just isn’t room for them all here. We can give you the headlines though: part of the original rave soundsystem scene since day one, nearly two decades of production experience, releases on virtually every well-respected label including Metalheadz, Reinforced, 31 and his own Function and Phantom Audio imprints. And now his uncompromising dubwise style has arrived on Technique.

TREi steps up on remix duties. The New Zealand DJ and producer has already proven his credentials with releases on labels as varied as Viper, Commercial Suicide and Shogun and consolidated his position with a second album last year. His “Midday” mix draws out the melodic underpinning of “Midnight Moves” while maintaining the percussive integrity at its heart. Then his “Midnight” mix takes things into the big room, delivering a mighty build-up and drop that’s bound to get the party moving.

Anyone who knows their bass music will need no persuasion to find room in their set list for this release. Digital’s name alone is all the seal of approval that a true aficionado will need.

Villem & Mcleod – Dutch Oven

Buy: http://btprt.dj/1x4UMCC

Villem and Mcleod have been making a lot of quality noise for a while now racking up releases on Metalheadz, Symmetry & Dispatched between them. So we are very happy to have them grace CIA Deepkut with these, as always with these two well executed examples of fine drum & bass.

Dutch Oven – Sees the guys on a more dancefloor tip, the beautiful keys of the intro are just the calm before the storm as they roll out a classy hypnotic bouncing bass work out reminiscent to the Full Cycle sound of days gone by with a hint of old skool flavour to put the cherry on top.
