On his incendiary debut EP RAE has his focus set across the globe, splicing Jamaican clash culture with the kind of thunderous drum & bass that could only come from the UK. Kingston Bass, out next month on Audio Danger Records, sees old-school reeses lock horns with spaceship basslines across four crisp tracks which roll back years as well as pick up air miles on their way to the dancefloor. Hailing from Cambridge – the city that spawned d&b heavy weights Logistics and Commix – RAE started mixing vinyl some 15 years ago, before first trying his hand at production five years later. And after a decade spent getting to know the studio, honing his sound and sharpening his skills. The very first release off the RAE production line is finally here in the shape of Kingston Bass. Having experimented with everything from liquid to jump up, it is safe to say that RAE does not discriminate, taking inspiration from sounds across the drum & bass spectrum. For Kingston Bass the producer set himself the task of working up an old-school bassheavy record with cutting-edge techniques and an unmistakeable Jamaican edge, and every box has been ticked. With faders set to stun, ‘Good Body Gal’ sails closest to Kingston with its Caribbean swagger and vocals before exploding into life as a growling industrial earthshaker. This winning formula pops up again on ‘Hands Up’, where menacing half-time gets things underway before laser-beam basslines take control. A neck-snapping middle section ramps up the pressure before another max-power bass drop. Elsewhere, things are a little less chaotic – ‘Mad Ting’ is a certified weapon, its wobbling bassline twisting over amen-flavoured drums for a deeper, less abrasive cut. Meanwhile ‘Fireface’ is tough as old boots, a meaty slice of old-school d&b where gruff bass tone calls are answered by a heavy reese response. RAE says he normally steps into the studio knowing exactly what he wants to make, but things don’t always end up the way he first imagined them. For him, creating a sound or finding a great sample can form the basis for a whole track, or radically change the direction of one which is almost finished, leaving the finished article sounding completely alien compared to its first idea. The EP is out next month, dropping exclusively on Juno for a week on 06/11/2017 before a full release on 13/11/2017. It is being put out by London-based label Audio Danger Records, a lynchpin of the underground scene and an imprint which has been on the up and up ever since its launch in 2010, picking up support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, 1 Xtra and Kiss FM.
RUXIM - OPEN WINDOW EP (OUT NOW) ***FREE TRACK AND EXCLUSIVE MIX***
Open Window EP is out now exclusive to Juno till 09/10/2017!
Ruxim has also dropped a free track and mix on our sound cloud
After his first release "Mistakes" with Audio Danger as part of the Hydra EP (part 3), the young, talented London producer returns with a firing 5 track EP. Open Window EP is an excellent show case of his skills in the Lab, Ruxim really shows off what he has to offer the scene. One to watch out for
The mysterious Masker returns to Audio Danger with his first full single release. Following the theme set in his debut on "Whipped Up" on "The Hydra" earlier this year, the message is clear - groaning droning bass hooks over rattling, tightly-sprung rattling breaks that resonate with all styles in the drum & bass cannon from tech to jump-up. "Shadow Web" is mean piece of work with truly demonic undertone to its spaced-out bass licks while "Victim" gets a little more venomous with its sharp two-step and waspy mutant bassline. Debut singles don't hit with much more authenticity or craft than this - Masker needs your attention.
