Schmeichel - Alteration EP [Defrostatica Records]

Ambitious Leipzig-based label Defrostatica continues to fly the flag for its hometown with the debut EP from Schmeichel, the Alteration EP – a forward-thinking journey through the outer reaches of footwork.

Drawing influences from all corners of bass music, former rock drummer Schmeichel strings together five cuts of explorative electronica with its roots in footwork but its heights almost limitless. Driven by hi-hats and rimshots, the record shuffles and grooves its way through a story, ushering in one of the new generation of Leipzig producers.

Lewis James – ‘Searchtower’/’Templar III’ [none60 Records]

Lewis James - 'Searchtower'/'Templar III' [none60 Records]

Lewis James joins the none60 crew for two tracks of deep, atmospheric drum & bass.

Silent Dust’s label snapped the producer up after hearing A-side ‘Searchtower’ played out by Jon1st – the combination of sci-fi pads and sonic artefacts giving way to a hypnotic bassline sucked them in, and that’s no surprise.

On the flip, ‘Templar III’ shows off Lewis James’ background in film and video game sound design with a real Assassin’s Creed dimension to the majestic half-time march.
