After a two year hiatus, drum & bass imprint, Liftin Spirits return with Ant Miles & Moving Fusion's monster, "Mass Hysteria". Reason enough to bring the label back to life, "Mass Hysteria" and "Cyborg" are two rolling tracks with neat percussion and killer basslines. Haunting vocals complete the package on a triumphant return for the label.
Putting something a little different out there for D&B DJs, London spinner Temper D offers up this breathtaking EP from Brandon Miles and Tricky Pat. From Portland and Vermont respectively, these two have an innovative and refreshing take on the genre, a million miles away from the mountains of formulaic D&B.
As Temper himself says: "They can really have an amazing effect at parties, provided you mix out of them with something with a bit of energy!". If only all label bosses were so thoughtful. Lead track Sulpher has a stuttering Dubstep-styled beat with some awesome beatless sections for stunning mixouts.
Pip Squeak will again work wonders in sets, coming in with a half-tempo swing that doesn't feel lazy but instead provides a classy way to switch up styles, with plenty of crescendos that are begging to be mixed out of. Radio X and Sex In Slime are two seriously dark and twisted tunes that the right DJ could deploy with huge effect. Having already been played by London Electricity, Doc Scott, Raiden and of course Temper D himself, these 4 tracks come seriously recommended.
