Symmetry Recordings drops a brand new LP with cuts from various artists, the CD featuring no less than 12 individual tracks. Drum and bass in abundance here with excellent work from label boss Break joined by Eastcolors, Ulterior Motive & Code 3, Octane & DLR, Prolix, Silent Witness, Need For Mirrors, Fields,Hydro, Mako, Villem and Mikal. An impressive roster and it makes for a fantastic long player. From the deep roller ‘Power Down’ to the more vocal ‘Who We Are’ and also the subtle in ‘Watch Out’, this LP really shows off Symmetry for who they are; A committed label excited by pushing the sounds of solid Drum & Bass.
With releases on RunDNB, Audio Tactics and most notably Renegade Hardware and Dispatch Recordings, Octane & DLR are set to drop their long player on the 10th September on Dispatch Recordings. Pushing the limits with their cross-genre vibes has gained them huge support from their peers. Regular radio play comes as a result, as the sound they have spent the last 12 months meticulously carving is ridiculously fresh. The album features mouth watering collabos from Break, Cern and EBK as well as guest vocalists and MC’s Fokus, Kemo, Gusto and Marion.
To whet your appetite catch this preview mix as its absolute FIRE! Just when you thought you’d heard it all before.

First up is a track put forward as part of the Dispatch Recordings Octane and DLR sample pack competition. 40 samples were offered up for producers to make use of and Method One by Kaiju is a big favourite of us here on the Robot Bodypop.
Next is a track by Dutch duo Mykur and TMSV with Icarus. An exciting collaboration and the track was made available last month. Love this riddim.
