Drum And Bass
Review: Exit boss dBridge continues his push the boundaries with two deep and melodic, post-drum and bass tracks for his label. Lead cut "Love Hotel" sinks into the furthest depths of bass, offering a sound with as much in common with early electro as D&B. The track offers the most in its mood and subtle groove - not one to lose it to, but certainly one to get lost in. "The Dim Light" on the flip is minimal and abstract electronica merged with stepping tech syncopations to unveil dBridge's dystopian soundscape.

Review: Given his history of twisting D&B and dubstep into new shapes, we shouldn't really be surprised by anything Darren 'dBridge' White offers up musically. Even so, the two tracks showcased on this Convex Industries release see him far from his comfort zone. "Passing Encounter" is the real killer, a decidedly fluid offering that sits somewhere between contemporary deep house and two-step garage. Its bittersweet chords and weary female vocals deliver an emotional richness that's hard to ignore. "Scarlett", meanwhile, sees White in techno mode, offering a grungy groove full of clandestine atmospherics and snappy percussion.

Review: Fat City Record's recent Producer#2 compilation was a superlative assimilation of Transatlantic beat makers with established acts like Harmonic 313, Mike Slott and Dabrye next to rising talent such as Mono/Poly and Darkhouse Family. Dbridge's "ZX81" was one of that compilation's highlights, a staggeringly slo mo drum and bass track infused with downtrodden soul with the warmest of white noise basslines. It's no surprise Fat City picked that track for this remix EP with two very special treatments. Berlin's Shed reworks the track into a broody sub bass dub techno monster replete with the most glorious of soaring synth breakdowns. Next up is an equally consummate remix from Ramadanman. The Hessle Audio man gives "ZX81" a shot of energy, a rolling percussive rhythm cloaked in sublime bass drops and screaming keys.

Review: A considered highlight of recent Autonomic podcasts, D Bridge finally releases "So Lonely", a track notable for some heart wrenching vocals from the Exit Records boss himself. If the fragile and stripped down nature of the original is not for you (and the feline growls that intermittently appear throughout seem an odd accompaniment) then the commissioned remixes will certainly find favour; not least the effort from Hyperdub's Morgan Zarate which imbues proceedings with some shimmering future funk. Exit regular Consequence opts for the more familiar spacious D&B steppah vibe, flushing the nether regions of the crisp, electrofied 808 programming with plenty of menacing industrial atmosphere.
