IMLTD 1208 – ‘Purple Sky’ EP

French imprint IM:Ltd showcases some of their talent with the new Purple Rain EP reflecting on sounds from a wide open spectrum of deep and forward thinking drum and bass.
Berlin best kept secret Es.Tereo opens up with the soulful ‘Purple Sky’, a textured blend of synths and crisp drums. Gunston’s ‘Transition’ follows with a dark vibe coupled with creeping vocals. Ukrainian lone wolf Hibea steps it up with the menacingly minimal ‘Ellipse’ before its all wrapped up by Nuage taking the vibe up and away soaring through sonic space with ‘Above Time’. Incredible work from this label and theres a couple of bonus tracks in there too. ‘Lonely’ from hot prospect Gerwin and ‘In This Life’ from Belgian producer Atmospherix. Easily in my top 5 EPs for the year so far.

North Base x Virus Syndicate – Home

Brand new collabo from infectious mic men Virus Syndicate and deep beat maestros North Base with this wicked new trick entitled ‘Home’. Pretty much everything you can expect from one of the scenes hottest grime crews and this years emerging and exciting dancefloor act. Its all about the amens for me. Bringing back that old flavour but still managing to sound as fresh as ever the producers here fully compliment the vocalists. Awesome and original work from both parties.

Available now alongside a tearout remix and acapella from Beatport, iTunes and Juno as well as all good online retailers
