Drumsound & Bassline Smith – I’m Gone feat. BullySongs [Technique Recordings]


We’ve barely recovered from the sun-scorched assault of Technique’s Summer 2016 album, and yet, already, there’s more Drumsound & Bassline Smith material for us to get our ears around. Proving they’ve got too much fire for one label to contain, their recent excursions on Playaz and Function Records have been setting raves alight, and now they’re back on their home turf. So, what have the Technique bosses cooked up for us this time?

First on the menu is “I’m Gone”. And this one isn’t just a Tune with a capital T, it’s also a Song with a capital S. BullySongs hasn’t just provided a singalong hook, but a fully structured lyric which drives the track just as much as the relentless bassline. From the lighters-up intro through to the soar of the build to the solar-plexus strike of the drop, this is going to deliver everywhere from festival main stages to early-hours after-parties. No watering-down, no gentle chaser, just a neat shot of pure vocal drum and bass.

And then it’s time to handle “The Truth”. The original hit hard when it dropped at the end of last year, but now Drumsound & Bassline Smith have unleashed the VIP and things have got even more serious. First of all, the intro has an extra level of cinematic sci-fi epicness, which perfectly sets us up for the additional brutality of the drop. The militantly staccato bass of the original is given a re-lick with more unpredictable twists and turns. This is one for selectors to pull out to ensure they keep the rave in the palm of their hand.

To put it simply, here are two dance floor-wrecking heavyweight pieces from the ever-prolific DBS team. To put it even simpler, it’s Drumsound & Bassline Smith, so what did you expect?

Loko - What You Do To Me / Time Flies [VPRVIP030]

Hailing from Glastonbury in the UK, LoKo is no stranger to laying down some serious beats. From playing his first club gig at the age of 14, to starting his own label Screwloose Records and clocking up quality airtime on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, LoKo’s insane production skill has gained support from the likes of Matrix & Futurebound, Andy C, Sub Focus, London Elektricity, Fred V & Grafix and Crissy Criss to name but a few.

LoKo previously destroyed dancefloors everywhere with the massive single ‘Rage / Failure to Communicate’ on Viper’s sister label Viper VIP, as well as the hard-hitting ‘Rage VIP’ on Drum & Bass Summer Slammers 2014 and ‘Who Are You’ on The Sound of Drum & Bass 2016. Now he’s once again showing us why he’s giving some of the biggest names in drum and bass a run for their money with this new single ‘What You Do To Me / Time Flies’.

First up, ‘What You Do To Me’ wastes no time in showcasing the sheer skill and diversity which has come to define LoKo’s production technique, pairing heavy beats and pulsating basslines with an atmospheric vocal which will put you straight on a high from the get-go. A combination of feel-good vibes and mean basslines make this an instant smash.

‘Time Flies’ packs some powerful punches as a darker, grittier track – a shadowy intro builds suspense before giving way to some seriously impactful sonics which are fearlessly intense from start to finish. This one’ll be keeping ravers firmly on the dancefloor until the early hours with its powerful rhythm and basslines.

Original, diverse and loaded with bass, ‘What You Do To Me / Time Flies’ is going to cause some serious waves this summer. Consistently bringing unstoppable energy and epic sounds all round, LoKo is undoubtedly switching up the game with no sign of stopping.
