Marcus Intalex’s favourite new artist of recent times, Phil Tangent, returns to Soul:R this month with his second single. His debut, ‘Billie’s Smile b/w Lunar’, proved a discerning and unique musicality to Tangent’s sound and demonstrated a level of musical depth, which is comfortably at home in the Soul:R camp. SOULR59 will solidify the deserved recognition for Phil Tangent’s sound

Kicking things off with ‘Restitution’, its a soulful number and lends itself to the more musical side of drum and bass. Choppy kicks and snares with a mellow melody and weaving vocals. Love the vibe on this one

‘Squaring The Cirlce’ on the flip moves through blissfull moods before the track hits you with a depth drop while the female vocals backed by haunting bass take you off

Available on both vinyl and digital formats on 10th December. Essential music.

Lynx – Dive Deep In / Shadowlands

Warm023 Artwork

Having a reputation for razor sharp production and always pushing boundaries with his music, Lynx is no newcomer to the scene. With releases on some of modern days most seminal labels, Warm Communications proudly present their newest single.

With vocal treatments for well respected vocalist Kemo ‘Dive Deep In’ submerges itself in dirty, deep funk. A rock solid half time beat and punishing bass stabs keep the momentum while guitar strings weave in and out.

‘Shadowlands’ features fellow technician Hellrazor in an epic roller comprised of swelling strings, steppy drums and menacing bass.

Available worldwide on 3rd December and you can pre-order here now.

Ruffhouse – Demand / Division III

Bristol based collective Ruffhouse dropped their debut on Ingredients in October with ‘The
Foot / Bypass’
to much acclaim. Already touted as a force to watch, their follow up is as good if not better!

‘Demand’ really shows their ability to make progressive, forward thinking music and it’s the unpredictability of this track that makes it stand out.

‘Division III’ is equally as impressive, teaming room shattering drums & almighty stabs.

Released on 3rd December worldwide and also available on strictly limited white vinyl. Pre-order here to make sure you don’t miss out.

IM:LTD 1209 – Gerwin, Nuage & 2SHY

IMLTD 1209 - Lying Portraits - front cover (resize)

Always on the cutting edge of drum & bass, IM:Ltd returns with a pair of tracks filled with
soulful energy. Preferring to err away from the obvious, the new vinyl release from the
France based label teams intelligent lyrics with stepping rhythms and delicate
instrumentation, lifting the release above a scene saturated with dark beats.
Gerwin & Nuage are one of Europe’s most prolific DnB collaborators and ‘Lying Portraits’ sees them team up with lyrical craftsman 2Shy to bring some beauty to the genre.

Sauntering through jazz influences it switches easily between a deep, emotive bass-driven track and a smooth, attention-grabbing stepper.

“Soul Truth” takes melodic textures and a smooth RnB vocal to create a track filled with
multi-layered beauty. A punchy 808 bass winds its way underneath, bringing warm depths to
carefully spacious percussion and interesting melodic snippets. A tune to relax to.

Gerwin’s ear for delicately devastating bass and percussion has been something of a well-
kept secret for too long. This release captures his need for elegance as well as depth and
rhythm. Listen and learn.

Available to pick up any day now on Triplevision
