Here we have some Drum & Bass and other Electronica bangers from the week, enjoy!
The hip-hop suite, inspired by the passion for the work of Madlib and Pete Rock, is released on tape for the first time in history of the GLBDOM music atelier. It turned out that it doesn’t take much: an MPC-2500 drum machine and a few favorite loops.
You are greeted by a hedonistic, highbred funkystyle straight from France. A bright symbolic tie with the voice of the godfather of soul, James Brown, gives a solid start and flies into the ears with packs of brass. Being the main style-forming feature of the album, the benefit of vinyl samples is overgrown with strings of synthesizers, basses, scratches and a slight hint of battle escapism. The vintage sound of the tape and the sprawling jazzy beats lead the entire instrumental system, emulating the golden era of early classics. The showroom of colorful moods contains references to the 90s, demonstrating the bold innovation of the rhythm maker Antoine Bermann with his occasional ambient intersperses.
There are many more treasures hidden here, go on a quest!
Convergence, the stunning second album from compositional ambient artist Matt Tondut. Being inspired by so many wonderful artists and having the opportunity to create with many of them, Matt proposed an album with every track being a created by him in collaboration with another artist. The line up is outstanding and features notable collaborators such as Good Weather For An Airstrike, Antarctic Wastelands, Lauge and many more.
Hailing from Riga Eduard Kosterev aka Specifiq debuted with us 6 months back with the ‘Diamonds’ EP. Now he returns on Spring Tube Liquid for his second appearance on this our imprint.
The ‘Oxygen’ EP by Specifiq includes his two new liquid drum’n’bass tracks in the different moods. Pick up your favorite one, and play it loud.
Deep, melodic, organic, downtempo melodies… This is the single “DEPTH” by Coout, featuring a remix by M-Sol Project.
Out next on Iono-Lounge Ten Maddison returns with this new album called ‘Borealis’. The album begins with ‘223’ a short chill track featuring warm sounds, epic risers and planetary pads. ‘Regulus’ has a downbeat drive with striking percussion, deep swarming sounds, a dark dirty bassline and a mesmerising mystical line. ‘Drops’ is a passionate track with monstrous risers and enriching fervent melodies. The title track ‘Borealis’ is filled with potent percussion, rousing risers and enchanting lines.
The thirteen tracks on this album are a mixture of chill, lounge and downbeat musical pieces, and all are made with pristine production skills; permitting each and every one of them to ignite different emotions within your soul. The album is quality, expressive and impressive.
