Welshman and Rude FM regular Chemical Allycomes to stage with his own brand new imprint Rooted Recordings. It’s a cut that takes a serious pop at the dancefloor. Kicking off with the Spirit remix of ‘Imagination Of Yourself’ from the man himself and Lady Flava, it’s a roller full of stabs and resonant horns to keep you moving whilst the flip sees Ukranian Fade pick up composer duties. ‘Insider’ sees warping b-lines and a host of spacefunk bleeps and bloops fll up the space before rocking the crisp amen breaks. A serious cut.
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.
