Covering both sides of the Drum and Bass spectrum, Grid and Allsorts have each become a byword for the chilled out and hard-edged sides of the DnB scene alike. Now, after the rolling sounds of Hybrid Mind’s ‘Blame’ and ‘Crossroads’, a slick collaboration from Maduk and Nymfo, Grid Recordings returns for a new bout of hard-hitting DnB.
Formed in 2008 by Deejay/Producer Malachai, Nightbreed, Singer/Songwriter Regina, Deejay/Producer Voltage and Mc Nu Flo, the London & Gloucester based Cabin Fever first teamed up in 2011. With each artist bringing a music history of their own, Cabin Fever has collectively worked with the likes of Les of Lab 4 and featured in such festivals as Innovation & Hysteria. As well as hosting their own radio show on Origin, Cabin Fever have also earned airtime from BBC Radio 1, Asian network, 1Xtra, Grooverider, Hazard, Mampi Swift and Crissy Criss. Well known in DJ circles with support from Ray Keith, Blade Runner, Savage Rehab, Vapour, and many more, one of DnB’s freshest acts now steps up to deliver the Four Faces of Bass EP.
Kicking things off, Anti Matter has all the hallmarks of quality Jump-Up. Featuring complex percussion, bags of atmosphere as well as an other worldly sci-fi feel, Anti-Matter starts off the stunning EP in style. Surging forward with pounding drums and it’s razor edged bassline, expect Anti-Matter to deal some damage.
The second track see’s things get rowdier still. Combining sliced up amens with a sci-fi atmosphere and a one of the gullyest, most disruptive basslines you’ll hear, Metronome features all the best parts of classic jungle, and modern precise production. With it’s relentless drums and crushing bassline, Metronome will get the dancefloor swaying in Unison.
Let’s Go ft Nitri
A collaboration with Nitri, Let’s Go rolls out the old school vibes once again. Featuring haunting synths and devilish pads, Let’s Go chilling atmosphere quickly transforms into what already sounds like a classic. Combining a stripped back drum track with sparse samples and a vintage, quivering bassline, and the result is a timeless blend of the old and new
Memories ft Kevin Lee Roy
Rounding of the EP Memories is the storming Memories. Combining crisp jungle drums, with a submerged bassline and the stand out, soulful vocals of Kevin Lee Roy, Memories harks back to the golden age of Drum and Bass. A truly lighters-out number from the London and Gloucester based production team expect to find this one creeping into every DJ’s set.
