Arkaik – Cutting Edge EP | DIFF015

dub arkaik3 Big fans of the Diffrent label here at
Robot Bodypop. The label bosses seem
to have a clear view of what they want to put out and whilst it may
be indulgent, the quality is always there. In their own words;
“We believe theres a lot of soul-less D&B music
out there due to labels having to put out music that “HAS” to sell.
Ultimately we’re about making music fun, trying new things
& putting out music that we truly love!’ – Hunchbak
& Dexta
The title track ‘Cutting
Edge’
opens the release off with its steppy breaks
and chopped vocal stabs. It doesn’t build so much as hit you in the
face from the off. ‘Lost’ opens with
some haunting synth’s and draws you in before the crisp break
drives through the cold vibes Diffrent
is known for before it peaks into a breakdown that
runs with piano licks and twisted electronica. Followed by personal
favourite ‘Game Changer’ it builds
slowly before the lyrics force a key change and the bass wraps
around the vocals interspersed with killer soundbites. Badness
‘Serrated’ works on the low end right
the way through. Its a deep track. One for the heads. A strong release and out to
pick up now at Juno Records and all decent online
retailers.

Fathom Audio – Promises b/w Ridges (DIFF014)

Big fans of Diffrent Records here at the Robot Bodypop, mostly because each release genuinely stirs something inside leaving us tapping our fingers, nodding our heads or grimacing in pure audio bliss.
The newest plate from the label due out on the 3rd September and Fathom Audio take control for a double A side. Comprising of members Billion, Sense, Codebreaker & Fybe, they keep the vibe deep but the tight production keeps the listener keen.

‘Promises’ eases you in before the stabs of neuro bass carve out the track perfectly with smooth cuts and vocals interweaving.

‘Ridges’ kicks off with a brief invitiation to fly then hits you with a gnarly drum pattern which filters perfectly between elegant and choppy. Love it.

Bag it. Spetember 3rd.
