Quentin Hiatus – ‘Clever Girl’ / ‘Orange Dreams’ [none60]

No stranger to taking drum & bass to the very edges of its definition, Quentin Hiatus takes an outing on none60 for a mesmerising new release.

The record leads on the stratospheric ‘Clever Girl’ which flies on a joyous synth line while bass frequencies ebb and flow beneath it. If ‘Clever Girl’ sails close to the sun, second track ‘Orange Dreams’ burrows underground, packing weight and taught drums into a small space for a heavyweight exercise in neuro-tinged production skills

Released on February 16th, ‘Clever Girl’/‘Orange Dreams’ has been hailed by DJs and producers across the scene. Listen below or head here to buy.

Out of Fuel – Isolation EP [Translation Recordings]

Out of Fuel are back on Translation Recordings with a frozen slice of sci-fi half-time straight from winter on Mars.

With rumbling bass throughout, the Isolation EP is an exercise in atmospherics with stormcloud pads swirling around skittering, urgent beats programmed with frosty precision – four tracks of it. The record is brought to a sinister close with Hypersensitivity’s remix of the Finnish duo’s 2016 track ‘Ghosts’, a fitting end to a titanic EP.

Isolation is out now on Washington, DC-based label Translation Recordings. Head to https://translationrecordings.bandcamp.com/ to buy, or listen below.

Ly Da Buddah & Mystic Dan – Rollin (Free Download) [Real Vibes]

Ly Da Buddah and Mystic Dan are back to bless us again with more industrial-grade junglist drum & bass, and as ever it is available as a free download on their Real Vibes imprint.

With a free release planned every month until December this year, it’s not exactly a surprise that ‘Rollin’ can be grabbed straight from Soundcloud but it is always a treat to get something for free that is so good you would have paid for it

‘Rollin’ kicks with a sliding bassline thrown over the top of frantic breaks, with a couple of jungle-style verses spat for good measure.

Listen below, and pick up the free download from the Real Vibes Soundcloud page.
