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.
This compilation actually now dates back to 2011 but the music far exceeds the time is was concepted. And the 2012 compilation isn’t available yet anyway so bag this.
The annual international music event hosted by Red Bull where up and coming producers, singers, arrangers, DJs and musicians get an opportunity to learn from top industry professionals has been throwing up surprise results year after year.
Incredibly, the compilations are put together and the event in Madrid last years see’s no less than 35 tracks included for free download. In any format I might add for the audiophiles amongst us.
Without going into too much detail theres a rich blend of deep electronica but theres still the core instrument playing musicians there in the fold making this an incredibly varied selection.
Absolutely pushed for standout tracks I might be inclined to say Yosi Horikawa & Dorian Concept with the glorious track ‘Red Sound’ & Jorge Caiado & Mathew Jonson with the deep house vibe on ‘Ecovillage’ are the tracks that led me to seek out the full compilation. Get involved.
