Source Direct - Dangerous Curves / Game Play - Tempo Records

#TempoRecords present #SPEED, a new #TempoRecords sublabel & project released on a limited collectors handnumbered 180gram coloured picture disc vinyl with original & legendary producers who helped shaping the Drum & Bass scene. After the #DJTrace & #DJKrust releases on #Tempo's #SPEED series here's the living legendary 'call & response' originator: #SourceDirect.

#SourceDirect, along with #Goldie, #Photek, #Peshay and #WaxDoctor, one of a handful of stand-out artists who were signed to major labels in the wake of Jungle's/Drum and Bass' popular explosion.

Around 1995 #SourceDirect would have been primarily known as '#intelligent' or '#Speed' artists (after #LTJBukem's and #Fabio's legendary #SPEED midweek club, held at the #MarsBar in central London). #Speed, and then #Metalheadz at the #BlueNote shortly afterwards, helped pave the way for dj's & producers like #SourceDirect to experiment with deeper material.

On this release you'll find new #SourceDirect material with 'that' distinct trademark #SD sound; superbly engineered breakbeats, the relentless sonic, rhythmic, tempo experimentation and haunting '#Blade' film-scape 'dark sounds from beyond' atmospheres accompanied with deep sub-aquatic resonant bass lines. If there's one production technique #SourceDirect applied it's the 'call & response' technique (the latter is also the track title of #SD's contribution to 1998's Stephen Norrington's '#Blade' cult movie which starred Wesley Snipes).

Vinyl collectors please check: This release comes as a strictly limited 600 copies handnumbered 180gram Picture Disc Vinyl pressing with a high quality polybag sleeve (including a handnumbered qty sticker on polybag corner) + all tracks mastered by Stuart Hawkes of #MetropolisMasteringLondon. First come, first served, no picture disc repress!

Note: The sound quality on a picture disc may be less good as on a regular standard vinyl! For the full sound experience, you may buy a full digital wav or flac quality download.
