Continuing their excellent run of grimey, minimalistic D&B releases, Protect Audio bring us a tidy new single from Dexta, Mauoq and MCXL in the form of Torn. Hitting home with hefty half-step beats, warped bass and some tight rhymes, this one is definitely for the heads rather than the dancefloor.
Keeping things leftfield, Mtwn delivers a remix which keeps the core and soul of the original but refixes the drum line with some seriously hyperactive beats; angular, synthetic percussion skittering all over the track to great effect here. Finally Freedom delivers a slightly more upbeat dub version with a gritty stepper vibe to it. Watch out for this one dropping June 24th via all good digital outlets.
Fell in love with Drum & Bass a few years ago and never looked back! I’ve been DJing around Glasgow for a few years (mostly as a resident at the monthly Symbiosis night) and producing for around a year now. Watch out for plenty more from me over the coming year!
