Kachina – Ayahuasca EP and FREE DOWNLOAD [Affectionate Grooves]

It’s business as normal for Kachina on their new EP, ‘Ayahuasca’, and that can only be a good thing. The Leicester trio have lift-off with five powerhouse tracks destined for festival glory, and have thrown out a free download too, just for good measure.

The title track swoops through the outer reaches of UKG, ‘What Kind’ throws a smattering of dub wise rudeness into the mix and the thunderous ‘Maasai Mara’ builds from tribal drums into a certified window-shaker.

And considerable support from across the scene – airplay from the likes of Marcus Nasty and Toddla T and features in Mixmag, Crash magazine and more – is only fuelling the Kachina fire.

Seba – ‘Nobody Knows’ / ‘Implosion’ [Secret Operations]

Seba strikes again with the first release of the year for his own Secret Operations label, and it’s one with some serious club pedigree – one track made it into every one of his sets in 2017, and the other is a drum & bass tribute to minimal dub techno.

Swirling pads top off frantic breaks on A-side ‘Nobody Knows’, a regular weapon in the Swedish DJ’s sets which picks up serious momentum with a frothing bassline that swoops down to the brink of something darker.

Second track ‘Implosion’ hits like the first breath of cold air on an icy December day, a sharp kick of reverberating, swirling vocal pads and stabs which form a dense atmosphere driven by urgent, precise drums.
