SV065LP: In:Most – Voyager Release Date: 03/04/20

In the world of music, there are many important partnerships: light and dark, kick and snare, drums and bass. So in 2018 when Bailey Greer deemed it necessary to make the long overdue move from sunny Australia to murky England and team up with Josh Croft, all in the name of music, only positivity could occur. After a strong string of releases on labels like Silent Audio, Goldfat and collaborations with the likes of Logistics and Saikon on Hospital Records, the pair positioned themselves at the forefront of the ever emerging talent on Soulvent.

Taking up the mantle from Pola & Bryson as Soulvent’s premier production pair, we are immensely proud to announce the debut album from In:Most, Voyager. The 16-track odyssey features appearances from scene stalwarts like Carasel and Lucy Kitchen, while flying high the flag of the next generation with fellow rising names like Walk:r and Mistrust. Embracing the concept of the journey was truly important to the pair on this record, wanting to push themselves outside of their comfort zone and challenge the listener as much as their own perception of their sound.

While the heady dancefloor highs of tracks like ‘Stay’ or ‘Do You’ might be what you’d expect from the pair’s last two singles, blistering tracks like ‘Embers’ and ‘Fever Dreams’ both attest to the beauty of collaboration, as well as the growing maturity in the young duo’s output.

Meanwhile the smooth tones of Ukranian born Anastasia’s vocals grace the glittering foundations of ‘Home’ whilst Lucy Kitchen’s familiar and comforting voice on ‘Glimmer’ provide the stellar female-led element of the record. For that unmistakable In:Most liquid sound, look no further than the likes of ‘Silver Lining’ with Walk:r, it’s beautiful guitar and piano lines linking up effortlessly – or the warming wah-wah washes of ‘Notions’ against it’s twinkling arps and soft pads.

Both a fun and engaging change of pace, ‘Scuba’ ushers in some serious garage flavour, with a playful take on the genre with a boundless, bubbling bassline.

Could a debut album out of Cambridge be complete without featuring a member of Drum & Bass royalty like Hospital Records veteran, Logistics? ‘Fixated’ blends raspy percussion with swirling sub bass and uplifting top notes with a drifting, drawn out vocal sample that shows the boys really can run with the big dogs.

Coming back into port, with the peaceful outro that is ‘Harbour’, we are reminded once again that In:Most’s production capability is not contained by drum and bass or tempos above 170 and their journey to get to this point has been long, varied and truly unforgettable.

12 months in the making, and undeniably worth every second of the wait – we welcome you to grab a 1st class ticket, sit back and relax, and enjoy the ride. ‘Voyager’ is out in all good stores on the 3rd of April.

SV065S2: In:Most – Embers ft. Walk:r & Carasel Release Date: 20/03/20

Hot off the heels of one big stepper, Do You, the Cambridge boys are back with the second single from their forthcoming debut album Voyager. This time showcasing their ability to collaborate with up-and-comers and old stagers alike.

Regular In:Most co-conspirator, Walk:r – fresh off his huge EP on Guidance – teams up with fellow Bristol resident MC Carasel to deliver a seriously heavy slice of bassy dancefloor business. Carasel has long been a mainstay of the scene both on the stage and in the studio, releasing on Hospital and Souped Up whilst hosting sets for the likes of  Sigma, TC, Benny Page, Fred V & Grafix and DC Breaks.

The haunting intro sees Carasel’s distinctive vocals flanked by an ominous barrage of hats reminiscent of crackling kindling, before the incendiary sub bass saws through the soundstage at the drop. This is yet another track from In:Most that truly portrays the broad spectrum of the genre they so effortlessly work across.

Available on the 20th March in all good stores and on all good streaming services, Embers is sure to burn down a dance near you.

When In:Most started out, the delightful pairing of Australian-born Bailey Greer and Welshman Josh Croft, the young duo set to turn heads and catch ears with their forward thinking approach to drum & bass production. After drumming up the interests of labels such as Goldfat and Silent Audio – not to mention gaining the collaborative input of scene stalwarts like Logistics, it was simply a matter of time until they set their sights on the exciting prospect of a debut album. And so it is with great pleasure that we are able to announce the fruits of their labour are set to be released on Soulvent Records this April.

The first single off the record, Do You, is a duality of both soft and melodic tones, in the form of rising arpeggios and warming vocals – paired with a rumbling, swelling bassline that belies the rousing intro. Holding its own as a set opener as well as at home, this track gives you a taste of what is to come from this body of work.

Available on the 28th of February in all good stores and on all good streaming services, we recommend you do check out the first, satisfying glimpse into the aural journey of their debut album, Voyager.

sv064: terror – twilight ft. jakes (out now)

Read More

Following his Summer single Feels The Same last year, Tony “Terror” Friend returns to Soulvent with another offering that expertly shows his musical range while drawing from his aural heritage. This time Terror teams up with the Hench head honcho Jakes to deliver two contrasting numbers that will leave you in a realm of dreaminess.

Twilight opens with calming atmospherics before the familiar tones of Jakes’ unmistakable vocals help you get lost in the vibe. The uplifting synth notes build up to a very heavy drop that will take you by surprise. The synths punch through a hefty bassline that is forming to Terror’s familiar style.

Tiddler is a much more expansive sonic affair. The intro seems to build forever and before you know it, you are deep in the depths of the arpeggio. This B-side will have you drifting for miles. Light, intricate harmonics alongside detailed percussion provide the foundation for the dreamy soundscape on this one: out of body experiences are both to be expected and welcomed.

Available in all good stores and on all good streaming platforms on 14th February. This is not one to be missed.

sv063: temam – the sin (out now)

Read More

As we kickstart our 6th year of business, we welcome Parisian producer and all-round nice guy Maxime Temam to the roster, with his debut single titled The Sin. Having started out with self releases on his own Studio Drum & Bass imprint, the 23-year old has also previously released on Overview Music, Fragmented Recordings and Impact Music. We are proud to present his first Soulvent offering with two bass laden bangers to ring in 2020.

The Sin features swelling, twisted, gnarling bass textures, matched by big rides and open hats which dominate the well thought out percussion. You barely get a moment’s rest in this high energy tune that is sure to conjure up some sinister reactions in a dance near you.

Winded starts with a rather unsuspecting intro. A barrage of hats, flanked by eerie pads, could lull you into thinking Winded is a sultry liquid roller. However, the distant, almost snake charming sample on the drop makes way for another strong and progressive bassline.

Dropping on the 24th of January in all good sets, stores and streaming services. End your well behaved January with “The Sin”.
