Kicking off with the sound of falling raindrops into a puddle, this release from Minor Rain on Loodma is all chilling atmospherics, melodic melancholia and stripped back beauty. "Waterdrops" blends sweeping atmospherics with heartbeat beats, murmuring bass and cooing instrumentals with great panache. "Desert Road", on the other hand, invokes much more urgency with the cinematic intro, insistent bleeping and throbbing b-line pressure. Sax sections add another layer to the track, which is full of withheld tension - rippling melodies, hissing hi hats and swelling instrumentals all hint at this. A triumph - make sure you listen to this.
Legendary D&B label Renegade Hardware has been a powerhouse of essential tunes from the darker side of the street for 19 years now. Pushing ever onwards with their future sounds, this release is a neat and nasty selection of the finest new talent around right now. Kicking off with a tasty slice of neuro badness from Slovakian artist Trilo and banging tracks from Klax and Subtension who takes to the studio with MC Nuklear, there's also a beast of a tune from rising also-Slovakian star Minor Rain. Clean, precise and just a bit deadly. You need this in your life.
