Silent Dust

Silent Dust is the project of UK duo Dan Blishen (originally from Manchester) and Andy Hobbs (hailing from Kent), who produced Drum & Bass together for years under the respective monikers Zyon Base and Hobzee.

Their self-titled debut, ‘Silent Dust,’ brings their signature D&B sound into a different light, drawing from a wide range of influences – ambient, drum & bass, garage, dub, breakbeat and soundtracks. The result is a collection of deep, bass-laden productions that sound like absolutely nothing else, filled with lush arrangements, an array of found sounds (‘footsteps, vinyl crackle, sellotape stretching’), cinematic vocal samples and glitchy, idiosyncratic drum programming.  Though it’s driven by experimentation, this is a D&B record at heart: even the ambient tracks were written at 160-170 BPM.

We are well impressed by this debut. Personal favourites are ‘A Million Words’ and ‘Shadows On The Wall’, which features in this weeks podcast. Check previews of all the tracks below, then click a link to buy.

One thought on “Silent Dust

  1. Dictate the diamonds price, Clarity, Cut, Cartage & Color.
    The inner layer of quality liners inside the jewelry is also something which can keep the
    jewelry looking great without having to fear of friction and jewelry will also be safe in there in case of sudden fall that kids often do.
    Brooches are being re-purposed, and are no longer just found on the lapel.
