A brand new record label, KYUBU kicks off with this smart blend of tribal electro-tech that definitely qualifies for the 'eclectro' tag. Joshua Tobin and Jack Rutherford make up the duo and this is their own label, which aims to feature output from like minds alongside their own material. Barry Jamieson has touched up track by everyone from Sasha to Madonna, New Order and Depeche Mode and his stripped back more traditional dark housey version is a perfect flipside.
If there’s one part of the universe that understands drum & bass like its British creators and guardians, it’s Russia. From St Petersburg comes a new label. Their first release certainly sets an unorthodox, exceptionally high precedent. Tumbling breaks pay homage to the Amen-dominated days, while a poltergeist-frosted vocal soars angelically over the rough and rugged backdrop. This stunning track is a soul searcher and will cause as much devastation to the dancefloor as it will enlightenment through your headphones.
Interesting noises on a Kraftwerkian groove with the result sounding a little like a dancified Spiritualised. Comes with a Dub that some more inventive DJs could put to good use.
Spatial Awareness follows his own recent debut single with another classy remix outing, this time bringing a bubbling acid feel to his stripped back legacy beats.
