LET'S GO OUTSIDE

Diynamic announces alternative residency at Cova Santa
Like A Memory - Techinmatic - Shogun Audio

Drum & bass seems to be going through a nostalgic time at the moment — this track really is ‘Like A Memory’. A concoction of elements which create a vibe taking us back a decade, but combined with modern techniques and influences. A joy to listen to. Great layering on the vocal. 

'Awakening (Giuseppe Ottaviani Remix)' - WINKEE - Pure Trance

"A cut from my forthcoming 'Electronic Architecture³' album from one of the scene's most consistent production teams — Finland's Winkee. Thoughtfully remixed by my favourite Italian."

Schizophrenics - Warface - End of Line

New hardstyle label alert! Warface launches his own label, combining female vocals, uplifting melodies, rap vocals and raw beats and drops.

Rough 2 - Tessela - R&S

Oh my giddy, always good to have new Tessela drilling holes in your buggered and oversaturated eardrums, and with his new tenure on R&S we find him in suitably uncompromising spirits. ‘Rough 2’ is good, yet feels a little expected. ‘Butchwax’ is more like it; bat-shit crazy, tough wormhole drums and more complexity than Phillip Glass on LSD, with a splash of Afrika Bambaataa tossed in for a retro wet dream. ‘C’mon, Let’s Slow Dance’ is like Dizzie said, “Bonkers”.
