Soul Synthetic LP – Bad Taste Recordings
A 12 gauge shotgun loaded with cutting-edge Neurofunk, Soul Synthetic features fresh new talent and veterans alike – cementing Bad Taste’s position at the forefront of the DnB scene.
Accepted as having a huge part to play in the evolution of Drum & Bass with the likes of Bad Company UK, Chase & Status and Noisia gracing the label’s back cat, Bad Taste returns to shake things up again with the Soul Synthetic EP. Rammed with 12 handpicked tracks from Bad Taste favourites such as Billain, Uman Vegas, Aeph and the Teddy Killerz, Bad Taste’s latest talent finding exercise also sees new faces such as Encode and Valrus, Cruk, Int Company, Detail and Rusty K make their mark.
Kicking off with neuro-veterans Uman & Vegas’ rowdy Lazer Godz, Soul Synthetic signals the beginning of a new chapter in the Bad Taste Recordings story. Fresh from their devastating Machine Room Levels EP’s, a release which has already racked up over 400,000 views on UKF, the Teddy Killerz return to Soul Synthetic to put their spin on Aeph’s Scumbag whilst Billain also offers up Minerva, a deadly bass juggernaut. As well as stormers from some of Bad Taste’s most illustrious respected artists, young guns such as Encode and Valrus, Int Company, Detail, Signs, Cruk and Rusty K also unleash a salvo of aggressive, energetic beats.
“a look inside my plastic dreams, this collection of music is formed from the digital soul of the current artists around Bad Taste Recordings. Soul Synthetic is a way of me showing you new talent that has surfaced in the last few months and of course providing some of the scene’s giants all in one handy dose of electronic madness”
