New artist on the jump up block, 2DB comes storming onto the scene with this release on Bassline Smith's Technique Recordings. Gird your loins as this one goes in hard and heavy from the off; a cacophony of bellowing mid range, bleepy 8-bit melodies and punishing bass, this one is an ADHD riddled venture into jump up D&B at its best. "Happy Days" evokes a Hospital sound with uplifting synths, pattering drums and euphoric builds which bubble along for the duration. Expect to hear more from 2DB in future - this one's a killer!
With Simon Bassline Smith as a label boss it should come as no surprise that 2DB is a producer who's all about the turbo-charged builds, catchy melodies and pumping, dancefloor factor. "Break These Walls" kicks off this four-track EP with a flurry of thunderous drums, whirring synths, Auto-tuned vocal and polished appeal. "Selecta" continues the story with pedal to the metal energy, this is tear-out D&B doing its thing. "Surrender" builds from an epic, trance-infused intro into a low-slung banger, before "Love The Music" brings things to a tumultuous close. Top notch dancefloor business here from 2DB.
