Massive Attack – Teardrop (Contra Bootleg)

Free download: http://bit.ly/1b8gL2X

My mate Neal (big up Renfer) introduced me to these Bristolians who go by the name of Contra. Never heard of them before, but there’s some wicked music on their SoundCloud page. This remix was up for free download on their profile and it instantly grabbed my attention. Not sure if any producer has done a bootleg of ‘Teardrop’ before, but Contra have pulled it off wonderfully – amazing vibes. Check out their links below!

Gamma – Chavland

Out in February.

Plasma Audio mark the first step in their record label’s life with a huge remix of Safire & Amoss’ track “4th State feat Gusto”, from the Dutch production lord, Icicle, of Shogun Audio fame.

“Straight Up Like A Harrier”. Gusto’s words are not used lightly as Icicle’s remix wastes no time in warming up before firing itself straight upwards into a cloud of Neuro swirls and unrelenting synth stabs. A tune that guarantees to lay waste to any dance floor in its vicinity.

Safire and Amoss take the controls back again for the release’s flip side. After the dramatic entrance of the “4th State remix”, “Gamma” shows another glitchier and more minimal side to the Plasma imprint. Take a ride with the tune as it flows over peaks and troughs of progression and breakdown.

The NFM discography reads like a ‘whos who’ of the cream of Drum & Bass, having released on pretty much every elite label you can think of — Headz, Playaz, Shogun, Digital Soundboy, V…the list goes on and on and on and on. They now touch down on Horizons with the ‘Rotor EP’ which is some of their best work to date.

‘Pantheon’ is a more upbeat affair with some vibrant pads setting the atmosphere in the intro before it drops into a rich tapestry of supreme bass manipulation and sweet female vocal snippets.

Optiv & BTK – Zero Tolerance

BUY: http://bit.ly/1g7Hb4C

After an incredible 2013, stacked with quality releases from a mass of great acts, we’re proud to present the first Dispatch Recordings release of 2014. Who better to bring in the New Year than Optiv & BTK? The duo return to the label for the first time since their debut with us back in 2011 (“Get Ready / Submission”) and they’ve been on a production warpath ever since! We’re proud to have them back at Dispatch with two unrelenting dancefloor killers.

Starting off the single we have “Zero Tolerance”. This ferocious track is not to be taken lightly, it growls and progresses like a raging bull hurtling towards a matador. Receiving strong support from the likes of Andy C and Klute, it was also picked up by UKF for their YouTube channel on first listen. Prepare for damage.

Hope you had a great Christmas and have a happy new year! Treat yourself with this free download from Facing Jinx. I have uploaded a lot of drum & bass on the channel in 2013, just had a look and it’s all bloody gully. Thanks to all the labels and artists for constantly sending me the goodness.

Lockjaw – Vicegrip

BUY: http://btprt.dj/1bSHMpV

Brought to attention by another very talented Dispatch artist, Lockjaw’s music absolutely blew them away immediately upon first play! An Australian based producer you’ll be hearing a lot more from in the future.

“Vicegrip” sees an interesting take on neuro-funk, with clean and clinical drums deviating wonderfully from the dark and rumbling low end. The nucleus lies in the obscenely gritty guitar riff, which murmurs ardently beneath the track, holding all the elements together to powerful effect.

Break & Mikal – Status Low

BUY: http://bit.ly/META013

Metalheadz rounds off an incredibly successful year with an EP from core label producer Mikal, who also brings some friends along for the ride.

META013 is a project that shows the versatility of Mikal. His take on the Headz sound includes steam train steppers, halftime dancehall grooves and classic reinforced era jungle. The EP is an expansive project that includes collaborations with Break and Nymfo, from South Country UK across to Holland.

The dancehall and dub parts of Mikal’s armory are strongly on display here – his contribution to the long lineage of dancehall influenced drum n bass is a confident- take no prisoners attitude, typical Metalheadz. The package is broken down as a four track vinyl EP, with an exclusive digital only fifth track. There is also an accompanying video for the title track.

The EP is five tracks worth of intent and is the tip of the iceberg for Mikal’s future in terms of sound and presence on the label and we keenly await his next outing.

Detail returns to Commercial Suicide for his second release, I think you will find its pretty gully. With impending musical output on Dispatch, Metalheadz & CIA, this guy means business. Detail is Daniil Marin from Kiev, Ukraine – he’s one to look out for in 2014.

Mindscape – Rat Pack

OUT: 16/12/13

The Hungarian madman known as Mindscape brings his trademark sound to the masses with “Rat Pack EP” – the latest offering on EATBRAIN, the label from the mind of Jade. Under the creative direction of this neurofunk innovator, Eatbrain has presided over countless releases by drum & bass’s finest since the label’s inception in 2011. 2013 alone has seen Eatbrain work in conjunction with the likes of Telekinesis, Concord Dawn, Coppa, 2Shy, NickBee, and Teddy Killerz, while continuing to expand into a widely supported movement within drum & bass culture. Continuing the streak of quality, Mindscape joins the fold with his first solo EP on Eatbrain – Rat Pack EP.

The producer has been a close ally of the imprint since it’s inception, having worked with Jade on tracks like ‘Banshee’ (Citrus Recordings), ‘Orion’ (Commercial Suicide), and Mindscape’s own infamous remix of Jade’s ‘Venom’ (EATBRAIN002). With “Rat Pack EP”, Mindscape delivers his finely tuned artistic vision to Eatbrain; grungy, innovative, riot-starting drum & bass music.

‘Rat Pack’ immediately sets the vibe with satisfying plucked keys atop pattering drums and ominous atmosphere. Mindscape doesn’t wait for listeners to get comfortable before unleashing two hulking bassline punches on the downbeat, setting the stage for the remainder of the tune. The intro draws to a close, and equally distorted bassline counterparts come into focus. ‘Rat Pack’ gets serious as aggressive drums converge with riotous vocal snippets to create a potently anarchic concoction. Melodic components descend downward, with a sense of hopelessness. A descent into madness, no doubt.

Cyantific – Eski’s Song

BUY: http://po.st/IceCreamiTunes

The CYN team steamroll into the festive period with Cyantific’s ‘Ice Cream’ b/w ‘Eski’s Song’. 2013 has seen the CYN Label go from strength to strength and they’re ending the year with a blast. ‘Ice Cream’ is a vintage slice of dancefloor destruction. Displaying thuggish call and response, knock-out punches and the classic computer game stabs – ‘Ice Cream’ has got hoards of hungry punters chasing it down the street for one more taste.

The flip side sees Cyantific turn his hand to a deft and soulful roller. Smooth delivery laced with 80’s synth power and a nostalgic bassline makes ‘Eski’s Song’ transport you back to time where drum and bass was thriving and above all else, passionate. This show’s Cyantific’s ability to seamlessly morph yesterday’s textures with tomorrow’s sounds.

Mako – A Break From Ritual

BUY: http://bit.ly/1jkZfv6

Mako’s “A Break From Ritual” is a heavy-footed drum rush that has no confusion about its namesake. Apaches, Amens and Think breaks clatter seamlessly overtop a crushing two-step kick/snare darkly worshipping Photek’s classic MODUS OPERANDI track “Smoke Rings.” Heavier and unshy about his equally informed nods to noughties neurofunk, Mako does not mean to disappoint a single dance-floor with this one.

Original Sin – Superman

BUY: http://realdnb.com/17qvZ3z

Hype and Pascal present the long awaited new EP from Original Sin. Get your cape on cos the first track ‘Superman’ is a high flying, action packed, fast paced hero of a tune which will be sure to get the dancefloor going.

Following on from that Original Sin keeps up the pace with ‘Radical’. Up next is another stormer, ‘Return of the Overfiend’, this is a bass heavy blinder and has some familiar beats.

Original Sins fans know to expect his high levels of cinematic production and ‘Never Gonna Change’ doesn’t disappoint with its slowly melodic vocals and cheeky beats.

This is another quality EP from one of the Playaz heavy hitters, been getting smashed by Hype at all of the festivals this year as well as picking up early support from 1xtra. Were sure this is gonna be big.

BUY: http://bit.ly/1aCv0vM

DLR has launched his solo career with an astonishing rate of productivity and his release schedule has been packed full of exceptional quality music. We are proud to bring you his next single, arguably the most anticipated to date.

The result is simply stunning and the duo deliver a neck-snapping monster of epic proportions.

Maztek – iMaz

BUY: http://bit.ly/HZA9DG

Maztek is one of those musical geniuses people are rightly jealous of. After discovering music aged just 13, he has moved through lead guitar, percussion and more before falling for techno and drum & bass at age 18. Immersing himself in the Italian underground scene, he starting making electro, grime and dubstep as well.

His own label, Subculture Records, began in 2005, and since then he has released on, and collaborated with, a who’s who of international drum & bass artists. Add in remixes for N.phect, Intiman and Foreign Beggars, and you begin to get the picture. He now brings his unqiue sound to his latest release on Renegade Hardware, a perfect home for his full on, futuristic beats. Over the last 18 months Maztek’s tracks have become a staple in an ever-expanding diverse selection of DJ sets. Known for his skilfully crafted Dancefloor orientated drum and bass, Maztek’s productions wreak havoc not only across club land, but also across the charts every time they are released.

Closer iMaz rounds things out perfectly, with depth, precision and enough funk to knock you into next week. Shimmering low end, perfectly engineered mids and some interesting samples and effects at the top all add up to one hell of a tune. Maztek has done it again, and shows off his finest work to date on M-Theory. Get to know the theory, and put it into practice now.
