Whilst #UnchainedRecordings is clearly an imprint that is fired up in its mission to push forward-focused halftime out of the dark and into the spotlight, they also have substantial amounts of Drum and Bass in their DNA.
With their tenth release, we see them return to their DNB roots and pile on the energy. Besides, don’t we all love of a good BANGER? This release also welcomes onto the roster one of the DNB community’s most celebrated rising Italian producers - #NEVE.
Straight off the back of his dirty rollers tear this year – with output from likes of labels such as #Guidance, #Lifestyle and #HospitalRecords – #Neve, label boss of #TheDreamersRecordings, furnishes two expertly produced, bass-rich, dance floor bangers.
With “#Believe”, #Neve goes on the offensive teaming up with #Fractale to produce a techy chameleon which is both a blitzkrieg roller and a peak-time stomper. Multiple layers of well crafted bass, combined with a snare larger than a small country, provides perfect ammo for a late night club heist.
The 2nd track on the release - “#Condensed” – isn’t just a homage to the genre-bending world of wonky halftime but carries forward the honoured tradition of combing beef and groove into a single unit of sonics.
Both tracks exemplify a large part of the #Unchained narrative - satisfy the dance floor but keep the journey special.
