Buzzin' Fly and Freerange alumnus Lodemann drops two skilfully constructed tracks for Defected's diffusion imprint DFTD. Lovely things they are. 'Coming Your Way' finds the East Berlin-born producer building and layering like a master craftsman, creating classy understatement where others would perhaps just go all out with its bassy synths. On the flip, 'Feeling Good' oozes class too, with its gentle pianos, vocals swirling, samples appearing and then disappearing in the deep. There's a lot to love here.
As the Subground sound continues to cross the boundaries between hardstyle and house, this label is very much at the forefront, with Acti delivering a sterling remix of Argy's new single.
Music funded by a yoghurt company. Background at Fat Cat Records. Sounds like Gruff Rhys, British Sea Power etc... cassette only. If only all indies had this retro foresight!
Modern dancehall riddim with a hint of roots running throughout. Check the FLeCK remix for the jungle inspired remix at 140 bpms.
