Review: One of the leading labels producing consistently high-quality soulful, deep and liquid D&B releases pushes out yet another stellar collection of new, upcoming and underground artists from their repertoire. Kicking of with yearning, wistful vibes from Low5 in "My Heart" and Passive - "Fall Lines", the tone of this compilation is very much to explore the emotional and cinematic ends of drum & bass. Moving into serious liquid roller territory in the second half of the LP, we meet artists from around the world such as Brazilian Marcio Mouse, California-based Amparo and Cornish D&B upstart Synthetic Journey. It's plain to see Soul Deep's mission statement - the best are worth searching for.
Review: Soul Deep present a cracking various artist compilation which takes in all the different elements of soulful D&B for which the label has become known for and packages them in a tidy album which is a must buy for fans of the sound. Kicking off the compilation with Dekoi - "Been Toon Long", it's all crackling atmospherics, chiming piano keys and clicking breaks for the duration. Elsewhere watch out for some gems from Marcio Mouse, Soul Connection, Spikey B and more. The lovely uplifting "Blue Memories" is guaranteed to get you in a good mood, as well as Dan Guidance's lush "Easton Dubs" before Midas brings the album to a gorgeous, dreamy close.
