Review: More breezy breath-taking soul from the recently-recharged DNBB. This time it's Leiden's Ecepta's time to re-shine as his 2015 release gets a timely reissue. "Forest" lulls with pensive anticipation and a lingering feeling that draws you right into the mix. "Illusions" is a little more upbeat and dramatic with rising chords and strong blasts of instrumentation whipping up a dreamy storm. Serious liquid gold.
Review: DNBB Digital is a Brazilian label that has recently come onto the scene, surprising most with its vibrant, south American approach to curating cuts both light and dark. This single by Miv is the perfect example, with a sense of lightness and depth that Marky himself would be proud of. 'the Distance' is absolutely gorgeous, with sparse stabs and a clean arrangement leaving plenty of space for a sultry vocal hook to flow out over the top. The flip side is just as good and both tunes have us pining for more from this label. Go check it.
Review: Fresh from his "Coming Back For More" EP in August, rising UK soul merchant Henry returns to DNBB with a powerful slice of MC led liquid. Introducing newcomer US MC Chainge, there's an urgent rap momentum that counters the lilting pianos and instrumentation creating a moving trip that's comparable to the work of the currently unstoppable T.R.A.C. Those not so keen on Chainge's ferocity can flip for a much more delicate, emotional instrumental.
