Review: Following a recent sell-out London show to celebrate the milestone anniversary of Digweed's iconic and genre leading record label he drops volume 14, and to us it sounds like one of the biggest and best yet. Across the 21 tracks, label favorites get a good showing, with; Pig & Dan's 'Crazy', Guy J with 'Mish Mash', and 'Whispering Leaves' from Marco Bailey. Plus a plethora of new talent coming through such as Maxime Dangles on 'Unsteady Curve'. Check out the tasty Electric Rescue mix of Digweed & Muir collab 'Raise'.. This is an essential for prog heads.
Review: Quivver (aka John Graham) is a true musical innovator: a legend in electronic music circles, renowned since the early '90s as being one of the scene's most essential creators and whose musical palette is intensely inspired and musically diverse. His contributions to Bedrock such as "On & On" and "Mumbo Jumbo/This Was" were chart-topping, critically acclaimed highlights - and his 2019 return to the label with the One Darker EP is yet another exceptional artistic statement. The slinky and hypnotic title track slithers through the subs with its razor sharp bassline, seething atmosphere and intricate rhythmic arrangements. Graham then dons the Skanna alias for a darkside drum 'n' bass/techstep rework that sounds straight out of the late '90s.
Review: John Digweed's unstoppable Bedrock returns with Quivver aka London's John Graham with "Mumbo Jumbo" a deep and slow burning exercise in dancefloor drama featuring bittersweet chord progressions, rolling bass and trippy synth atmospherics that you could imagine Herman Cattaneo dropping to a loved up crowd at 4:00 in the morning. Second offering "This Was" is less dark and more positive and uplifting with its elevating arpeggio and sublime pads supporting a sweet vocal led groove. Following up some great recent releases on the likes of Selador;, Baroque and the aforementioned Cattaneo's Sudmusic: this guy certainly is on a roll right now.
