pubblicato un commento su Ben Frost - Super Dark Times. 3 months ago
I'll review the tracks, not the pressing.

The film itself is a strong, atmospheric drama; and the shots of an eerie, dreamy fall in American suburbia are only aided by the soundtrack.
It's often tense - static noise and harsh drones run through 'If ... Leggi la recensione per intero
pubblicata una recensione di Kid Drama - Engram 1. 4 months ago
Absolutely phenomenal release.
Sure the tempo is drum & bass but this is just music on another level of ingenuity.
Over 15 minutes of pure brilliance, I can't praise this release enough and, along with Crimson/Azure, shows why Kid Drama is in another ... Leggi la recensione per intero
pubblicata una recensione di The Midnight (2) - Nocturnal. 5 months ago
Perfect release this one. Very very rare in any genre, let alone Synthwave. I'm a huge fan of the style, but some tunes are a little too cheesy for me, The Midnight's earlier stuff for example, is boarding on a little lame.
Nocturnal though, they went a ... Leggi la recensione per intero
pubblicata una recensione di The Midnight (2). 6 months ago
It's a warm night, twilight in Miami. The purple evening sky mimics the neon glow from the city, the palm tree shadows lay lazily across the pavement and the light ocean breeze caresses your face.
You put pressure on your foot and the rumble of the V8 ... Leggi la recensione per intero
pubblicata una recensione di Eric Prydz - Call On Me. 8 months ago
15 years later, and still, Call on Me is an absolute belter.
Prydz's production is through the roof on this one, its so ridiculously simple but it hits hard.
As we all know the track hugely samples Steve WInwoods 'Valerie' and I actually heard ... Leggi la recensione per intero
pubblicata una recensione di All Saints - Black Coffee. 11 months ago
Black Coffee is a real gem in popular music. Structure wise, its very unconventional, and it's also very daring.
As with Pure Shores, the atmosphere is something else, Orbit delivers a real haziness. A dreamy, haunting record, the harmonies and ... Leggi la recensione per intero
pubblicata una recensione di Consequence (6) - Injunction / Chamber Music. 12 months ago
I'm a bit late on the review for this one, but I recently drew for this in a throwback dubstep mix and it still sounds unreal.
The dubstep 'hype' was an interesting one, unknown producers came out of nowhere and created really nice, well made pieces of ... Leggi la recensione per intero
pubblicata una recensione di Djrum* - Portrait With Firewood. about 1 year ago
Seemed to come out of nowhere this release, I clocked a few articles on social media and a few new tunes about a week before release and suddenly it was upon us.
I've reviewed a lot of Djrum releases, the man is a producer ahead of many in the game. The ... Leggi la recensione per intero

Absolutely unreal.
The sheer musical imagination, originality and vision Djrum brings to his tunes never ceases to blow me away.
Each side flows into each other with Part 2 beginning with an unbelievably haunting vocal sample taken from Paris Texas ... Leggi la recensione per intero

pubblicata una recensione di Scuba (4) - Adrenalin. over 2 years ago
Whole EP is Scuba at his best, even after 6 years this still sounds incredible.
'Adrenalin' and 'Never' are almost a hybrid mix of techno & disco, with both having prominent vocals (Never samples from Janet Jackson's 'Love Will Never Do') that drive the ... Leggi la recensione per intero

pubblicata una recensione di Boards Of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest. over 2 years ago
The atmosphere of Tomorrow's Harvest is fantastic. It's extremely dreamlike, almost mournful; even the more upbeat tracks like New Seeds, Come To Dust and Jacquard Causeway are haunting and often feel fuzzy, surreal.
The production, as expected, is ... Leggi la recensione per intero

Swamp81's (mainly) digital label '81' has been going for a few years now and has put out the tunes which, if you've been to see any of the Swamp crew play, you probably will recognise.

Anyone who's seen Blade runner will know the iconic Vangelis soundtrack is something very special, and anyone who's into drum & bass will know the film is a goldmine for samples; from dialogue to sound effects, the films been sampled countlessly (mostly ... Leggi la recensione per intero

There's a reason why this EP is on Berghain's Ostgut Ton label. All 4 tunes are big room relentless techno designed for the cavernous space of Berlin's most notorious club.

It's an odd release this one, I don't think you can find two tunes that are so different from each other let alone release them on the same EP. But thats what we've got here, Side B caries Nu:Tone's remix of Feeling You, which is kind of a liquidy, jazzy ... Leggi la recensione per intero

Nonplus013 was from the later stage when Instra:Mental started creating the more bassy, 130, acidy type sound Boddika is well know for producing now. Lots of double claps in this one with a heavy, sleazy bassline. When I Dip is a dancefloor destroyer, ... Leggi la recensione per intero

pubblicata una recensione di THEM (2). over 3 years ago
Fairly new but high quality label based in London releasing heavy underground techno. Rooted in the macabre, with glorious artwork (full sleeve in 003 & 004's case) by Paul Grelet.
A lot of hard hitting, relentless bangers by some fairly established ... Leggi la recensione per intero

The whole album is absolutely flawless. Beautifully crafted, razor sharp production, every tune is light-years ahead of its time.
Sector 3 though, come on, this tune is straight up malicious. Spaced out, minimal... and brutal. Those sonar robotic horns, ... Leggi la recensione per intero
pubblicata una recensione di Gen. over 3 years ago
A real talent signed to Fokuz in the early days, sadly only 3 EPs ever saw a release.
All 3 are really great though, maybe now sounding a tad dated (except for Reactor) they carry a real organic, mellow, intelligent drum & bass sound. A lot of prominent ... Leggi la recensione per intero
pubblicata una recensione di Rockwell (10). over 3 years ago
Its actually been many years since Rockwell graced the drum & bass scene with his presence, and although his production quality has remained as razor sharp as ever, it pains me to say it but the output of this production has been on rapid decline.

pubblicata una recensione di Scuba (4) - Hardbody. over 3 years ago
Hardbody (presumably a nod to American Psycho) is one of my favourite, and I think best, Scuba tunes; a slow building techno track that incorporates a lot of the 80's, Miami Vice style synth and key hooks that worked so well in Personality (think If U ... Leggi la recensione per intero

Betrayed is one of those tunes that sums up drum & bass for me. Everything about it pushes the right buttons and musically, its very, very high on my favourite drum & bass tracks of all time.
Overall, its a simple, well made, deep liquid roller but ... Leggi la recensione per intero

Celsius once again choose wisely and put out a strong release by the Ukrainian duo.

Ruffhouse have a reputation for making some of the most aggressive and hard hitting drum & bass around. Production is totally on point with some of the meanest, deepest kicks I've ever heard and a back catalogue that boasts a near perfect run.

Doesn't get the recognition it deserves this release. The production quality from Method One, who himself is extremely under-rated, is through the roof. Symbol 5.3 for example is an absolutely gorgeous mix of ambient, drum & bass and deep space from a ... Leggi la recensione per intero

Clubroot doesn't get half the recognition he deserves in my opinion. An extremely talented producer, his production often carries a deep, mellow, euphoric vibe.
