JUNCTION 12 promo visual (600x600)

2012 has been a fulfilling year for IM:Ltd and with the sonic summer being definitively over, the French based label gets back moodier than ever with ‘Junction 12’, a collection of 6 meticulously picked Drum & Bass tracks from some of the hottest talents on board that comes in the form of a 3×12” vinyl series.
Disc 1 sees Berlin producer Es.tereo going back to some of his darker playgrounds with ‘Junction 12’, an autonomic influenced stepper forged on obsessive robotic vocals and industrial klanks. On the B side, French techstep veterans Kantyze deliver a surprisingly uncluttered roller named ‘Tough Breaker’. Simple & efficient.
With releases on labels such as Goldie’s legendary imprint Metalheadz , 2012 has been a wealthy year as well for Mortem as he returns to IM:Ltd with ‘Converter’, another brilliant track that won’t contradict his well earned reputation for creating music that causes serious damages on dance floors across the globe. The flip consist of ‘Amour King’, the first vinyl effort from Quartz , a new duo hailing from Cardiff.
On Disc 3, Gerwin steps up his game with ‘It’s All In Your Head’, a seedy piece of minimal tech funk. Once again, his ease and versatility definitively makes him one of the name to be watched out for in the coming months.

Last but not least, Belgian producer Atmospherix teams up with S-Vb for some ‘Modular Revenge’.

Robot Bodypop 07.07.12

artwork by Mike Best

YES! Robot Bodypop comes once again with a selection so heavy its best mate is a Higgs Boson. Another 2 hours of incredible bass music all sublimely layered between 4 selectors this week. Killian comes in for the first hour followed by a 20 minute digital injection from 1nejack who’s busy circling the Earth. Selections there include smooth vibes from Bulgarian badman Mloski and Brightons Guy Andrews as well as bass heavy riddims from Spinline & Submerse as well as some other tracks taking the vibe in all manner of directions.

Don’t forget were carrying on with the Survivor track, this being the strongest track from the previous sessions selections. Keep your ears pinned back for that beauty.

Rounding everything off is, of course, the Transmit session this week provided by selectors Peaman & Hicha from Bristol. A glance at the tracklist shows they are proud of their roots and they took some time to chat breeze with the Robot Bodypop.

Stream it, download it and share with your mates. Its a sweet 2 hours of beats. Check out the ‘Free Beats’ post this week for info on where to bag more than a handful of these tracks from the producers kind enough to give them away.

Amoss – State Of Suspension E.P

Set for a release on July 9th, Dispatch Recordings brings Hereford duo Amoss to the forefront with this 4 track E.P. Featuring collabos from Fokuss and Dabs and an extra exclusive on the digital copy. ‘Rollpipe’ made it onto the Robot Bodypop playlist this week as it got us dancing hardest in the studio. The beats are clean and deep and the vocal stabs and build works perfectly alongside the neurofunk bass. ‘New Jack Swing’ picks up where 90’s D&B rollers left off and updates it with tight drum work and a liquid vocal. ‘Shapeshifter’ and ‘Latch’ round this release off with 4 tracks that yet again revive life into D&B.

Stray ft. Halogenix – Warm 022

Warm Communications have featured heavily on the Robot Bodypop, not least because of the diversity on the label. Their latest release with Stray ft. Halogenix on the new double A-side has been making waves within the D&B scene. No surprise because this release is indicative of producers wanting to try new things. ‘The Pursuit’ is a blend of ridiculously tight percussion & groove bass interspersed with sweet amens and smooth atmospherics. Made me feel like a getaway driver.
On the flip is the track that made it onto the Robot Bodypop show this week. Stray teaming up with Halogenix goes by the name ‘Poison’. Builds up with smooth pads before literally attacking your beat judgement with some work I’ve never heard anywhere else. I’m still trying to get my head round it so I’m gonna stop trying to describe how much I love the vocal cut over the skippy riddim and leave you to listen yourself.

Not been this excited about a single in a while purely for what it might do for other producers. Bag this on the 16th July and beyond.
