Review: DNBB Digital are a Brazilian label for whom releasing funky music is quickly becoming second nature and what a piece of work their next release is, as Jungie and Mystific roll out some soul across varying drum patterns and vibes. 'Dare' takes the funkiness of Peshay or someone similar and chops it into bits, gullying things out whilst keeping the overall feeling upbeat and energetic. 'Forte' is also a highlight, another number which packs melancholic piano chords and a stuttering drum break which flutters in tandem. Lovely.
Review: Quick! Grab Henry an anchor, he's "Drifting Away" and we need him back on terra firma to maintain high vibe levels in drum & bass! Seriously, though, you will actually drift into the ether with all of these jams. The title track radiate soul with its lilting pianos, "Waiting For You" adds a solemn touch where the drums are shrouded in a cloak of melancholy, "Journey's End" shimmers with a dreamy sheen that's not dissimilar to an Etherwood instrumental while "Let's Move On" closes with some of the smoothest guitar work since Dire Straits Brothers In Arms. Sublime.
Review: DNBB Digital are a Brazilian label with a penchant for the soulful side of things, and they've got a four-tracker from D.Amadeus that's full to the brim with warm, gentle and flowing sounds, but which also still pack a punch. 'Toys' is the best, with gorgeous piano chords that melt into one another amidst a backdrop of liquid soul. 'Together' has more of a dancefloor vibe, whilst 'Glimmer Of Hope' is yet more fantastic, beautiful music. Shout out to the Brazilian team.
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.
Review: Pure Brazilian high grade; longstanding Sao Paulo stable DNBB reflect over some of their most touching, soulful rollers and gossamer grooves with this third volume in the Golden Team series. Highlights can be found across the entire 23-track collection but instant bliss and pure uplift can be found on the likes of Mystific's piano-pimped "Into The Sky", Motta's lavish soul and sample craft on "True Romance", the sultry Latin purrs and nylon strings of DJ Roots "Sorriso De Flor" and the emotional key lilts and hurricane atmospheres of Cosmikk's "Lea". Nothing but vibes, sunshine and soul, when they say gold, they mean gold.
