One thing I love about the recent drive in pushing your own label is that you eventually see the label as a reflection of the owners. Goldie to Metalheads is what Loefahis to Swamp.
Ingredients owner Clive brings a very Soul:R influence to the next cut which sees Marcus Intalex taking control for both sides of the new 12. ‘Cabal’ is a deep techno influenced roller, with crazy sub-lo bass and slick percussion work. Meanwhile ‘Mud’, with it’s excellent arrangement, early 90’s feel and distinct Intalex vibe is a straight up slice of drum & bass as it is meant to sound.
Pressed to a limited amount of 400 full release promo copies, be sure to grab it while it’s hot.
Robot Bodypop favourites Ingredients records presents the first of two various artists EPs set for release in 2012. ‘Mise En Place’ is the 2-part series and showcases some of the finest music signed to the label so far. Kodo’s ‘The Jackal’ has been remixed by none other than dBridge. The flip see’s duo Kinetic & Mark Recoil make an exciting debut with ‘Cold Streets’ which is a murky minimalistic tune, with awesome bass work and the Ingredients vibe. The release also see’s Villem‘s first ever remix & what a choice! Foreign Concepts ‘Jaipur’ was a huge track last year on the Recipe Book album and this remix has been supported by Friction & Break. Stealth & Stylus are another duo making a debut and ‘One Way’ is an awesome vocal led track with crisp beats and deep bass tones. Set to drop on September 17th on vinyl & digital. Bag this exciting release.
