CYBIN - Overlap EP - Lockdown Recordings / LOCDIG042

#LockdownRecordings are a Bristol based label who’ve been grafting to build a roster which stands up against those imprints who were established in the earlier days. Promoting the deeper side of the dance music spectrum, they’ve always adhered to the same paradigm; that’s to offer only forward-thinking, technical and rolling vibes for the heads. #Lockdown’s next release comes from label boss #Cybin. Following recent releases with #IntrigueMusic and #TrustAudio last year, #Cybin now returns to the #Lockdown with a new 4 track EP also featuring a remix from London based duo #Kolectiv. The EP opens with the stripped back trademark jungle vibes of ‘#TribalDub’. Classic rolling breaks and reggae vocal samples build before switching into fizzing bass stabs and reece edits. A rolling dancefloor tune that sits well in the mix. Title track ‘#Overlap’ has deeper minimal vibe, atmospheric textures and precise, stepping drums underpin a low growling sub bassline. The overlapping mid bass stabs and reverberated effects setting the tone for the EP as a whole. Fresh of the back of their new EP on #CIA, #Kolectiv step in for remix duties for the next track and roll out a futuristic re-lick of the classic roller ‘#ComeNow’, combining stylish technical edits, punchy rolling drums with the mentasm stabs and deep musical vibes of the original cut. Floating point closes out the EP, a lethal dark dance floor cut that takes inspiration from the golden era of early D&B, deep sub bass stabs and tear out switching mid bass are brought together on a classic #Cybin tech stepper that really smashes through on a sound system. With releases scheduled on #Emcee, #TrustAudio and #IntrigueMusic for later this year, 2020 is already looking like a big year for #Cybin and #LockdownRecordings. Don’t sleep on this one… Keep it Locked! Beatport Exc: 9th Mar
