As a custodian of the authentic Liquid D&B sound, Mr Joseph’s debut album strikes a delicate balance between funk-filled, soulful rollers and deep brooding basslines. The result is an album packed full of different musical textures which, combine seamlessly to create an immersive listening experience.
This is the debut album from Mr Joseph on Liquid V – only the second full artist album ever on the label!
It’s become clear that Tantrum Desire’s debut album project, Diversified, had way more high-octane in the tank than was revealed when it first dropped in 2015. Monumental though it was, the succession of nitro- charged remixes that we’ve been treated to show that those sounds have a lot more to offer. And now one of the indisputably biggest names in drum and bass music has
joined in the action. Yes, BBC Radio 1 and Shogun Audio’s very own Friction has reported for remix duty.
Genesis, in its original form, was one of the breakout hits of the album, and is set to reach those heights again. Friction stamps his authority on the track immediately, and reconfigures the elements into a savagely gritty and grimy intro. Dark swathes of bass and ominous pads leave no uncertainty: this is going to be heavy. The point is driven home by a massive, rumbling kick- build, pushing the rave’s anticipation off the scale.
The version we all know was marked out by those bouncy swing-time beats, and Friction delivers them in all their irresistible glory. The sharp call-and-response between high and low- end emphasises the groove even further. Friction’s retained all that dancefloor energy, while adding his own extra twist of filth in the bassline.
We couldn’t help skanking out to the original and this remix is just be as addictively floor-filling. With this most recent chapter of the Diversified story, one of the scene’s heavyweights has proved that there are still twists in the tale. Another one for discerning selectors on all sides of the scene.
One year deep into their rule-free pact: Dubstep roadmen Caspa & Rusko continue to deliver some of the most exciting, refreshing creations in their careers. Fresh from dropping their broadsword all-flavour ‘EP 1’ and the incendiary rave blunderbuss ‘Cheese’, they let rip with their second EP… Once again it pays no attention to trend, expectation or formula. And it’s sprayed in every shade of gully soul known to mankind.
It’s no surprise that DJ Hybrid hits the Serial Killaz camp with a massive EP full of jungle and mid 90’s influences. ‘Too Deep’ is a monstrous bag of 5 (yes 5!) hard hitting, breakbeat infused riddims, each with their own throwback to different events in drum and bass’ history. This is certainly one EP not to miss – period.
