Review: Klinical is one of the rising stars on drum & bass and his Unconcious EP on Flexout is the next chapter of that journey, a trajectory which so far shows no signs of abating from its distinctly upwards bend. It's his most refined, most mature work to date and it displays his ability to move beyond purely dancefloor production and into the world of electro tech dripping with funk. The title track exemplifies this best, as flutters of synths blow in the celestial wind and wrap themselves around a punchy, driving low end and crisp percussive patterns. There are harder bits as well as softer touches, and it's a true tour-de-force from one of drum & bass' most exciting talents.
Review: Overview are without a doubt one of the biggest success stories of recent years and 2020 has proved to be their biggest yet, with a slew of fantastic releases across their roster of artists. Pretty much that entire crew is represented here and the tracks cover their 2 year history, from early tunes like breakout hit 'Around Me' to brand spanking new cuts like 'Framed' by Klinical and Waeys. Waeys has been an important part of the Overview story and his tune 'Who You Are' with Hadley was one of the first steps in that journey, a ridiculously dirty techy roller with an infectious bounce and a progression that will certainly get your gurn on. A spectacular album.
