Zaiaku – Lost Identity

Buy: http://po.st/BodyEPSP

Fresh from causing major damage on both Ammunition and Bassnutz already this year, Las Vegas-based instrumentalist Zaiaku is already denting dancefloors on both D&B and glitch fronts. Now, with the ante factor officially set to up, the young producer makes his debut on A.M.C’s Titan Records.

We kick off with ‘Lost Identity’. An icy mission statement from the off; it opens with a stark, paranoid introduction that comprises head-turning sound design and naked piano flexing before dropping us neck-deep into crude oil tech dynamics. Galvanised with gritty, ever-mutating bassline the real twist in the tale comes mid-way as Zaiaku cracks his ivory-tickling fingers with such emotional ferocity some of your dancefloor may need emotional counselling after hearing this.

Fre4knc – Chain of Command

Forthcoming in April…

Plasma Audio bring the heat with their third release and first outing for 2015. With just three releases under their belt so far they have succeeded in cutting a solid path with enormous cuts from Icicle and Sabre among others. For the third release they’ve enlisted the help of Fre4knc.

Plasma like to keep things on the grittier side of drum and bass and these two Fre4knc cuts do just that. The A side, Chain of Command is a rumbling roller that swoops and crunches through your ears and on the flip Sinjek feels more spacious and lean, but still delivers a hefty punch. This one is coming out April 2015.

Malaky & Velocity – Midnight

Forthcoming on Fizzy Beats…

Heard this one on Friction’s show and yes, I’m absolutely loving it – liquid drum & bass bliss forthcoming on Fizzy Beats. It’s reminiscent of Lenzman and a bit of Phil Tangent as well – if that’s not high praise then I don’t know what is. Very excited to hear new music this year from these two new producers!

Yung E – Mindset

Buy: http://bit.ly/1BJPHT7

Micheal Biniaz, AKA ‘Yung E’, may be an unfamiliar name in the world of drum and bass at present but this little known producer has an extensive history in the UK underground music scene. Over the past 18 years, the veteran artist has chalked up an impressive DJ & production portfolio across the jungle, drum and bass, garage & dubstep genres

Since his welcome return to Drum & Bass, Yung E recorded the deep and techy ‘Enzymes / Transform’ single for Basher’s Proximity Recordings, and is slated for more releases through Nurtured Beatz Recordings. With his exceptional background and deep knowledge of a wide spectrum of British underground bass music; we can only predict big things from the West London based producer

This one’s an absolute hurter. The groove laden tech style of ‘Mindset’ hits the mark with it’s hypnotic percussion, catchy bass hook and unrelenting snare. The formative essence of the Nurtured Beatz Recordings aesthetic is fully represented here.

Amoss & Fre4knc – Oxide

Buy: http://bit.ly/1FLgy1W

I have been eagerly awaiting their return to Dispatch and in Spring 2015, Dispatch are pleased to welcome back Amoss to the label for a three track single. Developing their signature sound and technical prowess, the duo balance a mixed palette of styles for various moods, demonstrating a maturity and increased versatility in production in their first label release since the acclaimed ‘State of Suspension EP’.

Jumping straight in at the deep end, the pair set off the release with a much anticipated first collaboration with Dutch counterpart Fre4knc, for ‘Oxide’. Sinister growls cut across this ominous stepper, held in check by a clean, yet brutal bassline that retains all the deadly energy of the track, whilst smoothly cutting through the mix.

Following up from his huge track ‘Speakers Vibrate’ with Mediks, Benny L is back on Audioporn with his debut ‘Granulate’ EP.

Boston – For Grace

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

Marking the 20th single on Symmetry, Boston returns with his second fantastic release. For Grace : Musical and Jazzy vibes on this tune, more tasteful keys and guitar flavours with influences from bands such as Zero 7 and Air, For Grace floats through the air carried by sexy vocal and sax licks. Boston really showcases his harmonic and arranging skills with this tune, quality musicality whist retaining a crisp rolling DnB groove.
