Next Phase starts a new chapter with their first digital
only release. It features four exclusive drum and bass
tracks that pay homage to the oldskool.
Virtue Of Falling by Infest and Dave Hoax is a
wondrous take on ethereal drum and bass. The duo
craft intricate Bug Khan and Soul Pride drum work
before launching into turbulent amen edits, cryptic
vocal samples and an eerily mystical breakdown.
Cultivate by MAC-V is drum and bass in its rawest
form. Ditching fancy musicality it begins with an
atmospheric pad and time stretched beats before
launching into tough amen edits and a rugged bassline.
Onesixty by Fjell is a schizophrenic take on 90’s
jungle combining both light and dark elements.
Starting innocently the track then alternates between
soulful chords and rhythmic rave stabs fit for any
style of retro drum and bass set.
Spirit Bomb by oldskool champion Tim Reaper sees
him blending techno, sound clash samples, Deep Blue
style beats and a Reinforced approach into mentasm
manipulation. The end result is a wildly hypnotic fusion
characteristic of mid-nineties experimentation.
