London-based DJ and producer Philth has a lot on his plate. Aside from providing the beats for his weekly Origin FM show, teaching the youth how to produce and record for themselves and toying with the pressing matter of becoming potentially the most prolific drum & bass producer ever to have existed, he's also found the time to create each of the cracking soulful tracks on this little beauty. Working with Soul Deep for the first time, Philth chose to work outside of his comfort zone, crafting beautifully written D&B as a counterpoint to his usual ruff-and-tumble bass-heavy dancefloor smashers. The result is a gorgeous collection of heartfelt depth and smooth vibes. Check "Humbled", our favourite of the lot.
Peer Pressure follow up the rather grizzly EP from Wreckless, Arcaudio and Necrobia with this delightful trio of rollers. The title track is pure bliss with soft pads, a breathy vocal and lightly placed percussion. A true sunrise number if ever we heard one. "Attraction" takes the Danny Byrd approach to vocal arrangement but with a much deeper, gradual bass riff growling beneath. "Motion" finishes the pack, and reminds us why Philth operates under such a menacing moniker: distorted, warped bass does the negotiating while some classic old school synth flutter over the top. Heavyweight business.
