#DruidRecords is an independent drum & bass label based in Essex; a place known for its place within the drum & bass scene as well as the part it’s played in its expansion. #Neurofunk had always been their primary sound choice and this can be seen through the high calibre releases they’ve been delivering through the imprint. Always leaning heavily on the genre’s darker side, #DruidRecords have dropped release after release of undisputed, tear out yet technically adept records. The next part of their discography is from #Audiomission, an artist who’s taken his background from the contemporary underground jungle and drum & bass world through his own lens, with his Bristolian backdrop only going to heighten his awareness of the cultural shifts and how his music has helped move them. As a key member of the #GYROSoundsystem, his music spans across the roots and dub influences, merging these with the cutting-edge styles he’s well versed in. Feisty yet feel good, his cuts have already received support from household names such as #Aphrodite, #DJHype, #Rockwell, #Phantasy and #Psychofreud, whilst he’s played on stages with artists who are just as formidable.
#Audiomission’s double-sided single ‘#MechanicalMovement’ and ‘#MindActivation’ take you through the motions of what #DruidRecords have at their disposal. ‘#MechanicalMovement’ leads you into a seismic drop through the lower depths of #Audiomission’s production, the type which rattle with their sonics and tightly woven rhythms. The power that thrives between the layers of ‘#MechanicalMovement’ is clear to hear through its driving motions and bit by bit you’re pulled along for the ride amongst its growling vocal samples. ‘#MindActivation’ is the flipside and it gives another insight into #Audiomission. It follows a similar path to its forerunner, building element upon element until its weight is undeniable.
#Audiomission provides two extra parts to the #DruidRecords catalogue, proving why even years later from their inception they’re still pushing boundaries and providing ample competition to imprints who’ve followed the same route in recent years. With music provided from artists like #Audiomission, #DruidRecords is set to retain their title.
