SV028 – In:Most – Changes [OUT NOW!]

Read More

Catapulting themselves into 2017, young production pair In:Most are making waves across the Drum & Bass scene. Based on opposite sides of the globe, Josh Croft (Cambridge) & Bailey Greer (Brisbane) are living proof that music knows no bounds. Having worked together since early 2012, yet only announcing it officially in 2015, the duo are pushing out some solid material. Namely their ‘Cloudfish EP’ out on Silent Audio, and the ‘Pictures In My Mind EP’ on Goldfat. Fresh from collaborating with the likes of Logistics on ‘Sheung Wan’, the pair now offer up , a 3-track slice of soul on our own young Soulvent Records imprint.

Opener ‘I Know’ eases in smooth pianos shaded with atmospheric padding, flanked by rhythmic clicks and sweeps. All backed up with a beefy drum break and a churning bassline, this sort of silky-smooth roller is fast becoming In:Most’s calling card.

’Changes’ kicks off with a purely positive, jazz-tinged energy. We’re talking feel-good sparkles, pizzicato strings and glossy toplines. Coupled with a screw-face bass and innovative vocal chops, it’s a prime example of their nostalgic yet forward-thinking sound. 

To round off the cut, their ’I Can’t Do VIP’ runs a more than welcome half-time reimagining of the original from last years’ Soul Sessions Vol. 2. With its playful, plucky arpeggiated synth, lustrously soft pads and rumbling, warm low-end, there’s more than an enough to reinvigorate the original release: our first offering from the duo, not even half a year old! 

With an impressive string of releases in only 5 months, these are two producers who show no signs of slowing down over the course of the year.

SV027 – Arch Origin – Value Shift EP [OUT NOW!]

Read More

PRE-ORDER THE EP HERE!

Our first release of 2017 sees the welcome return of Soulvent faithful and long time friend, Daniel Van Mourik – better known as Arch Origin. Dan caught our attention over the past few years with tracks like City By Night and Mesmerize, and it’s clear to see the producers’ progression; as he landed his first release on the legendary d&b imprint Hospital Records last year. His Value Shift EP is a 6-track journey through his ever-emerging sound, as well as encapsulating some important social observations for the millennial generation. This varied offering should surely satiate any budding drum and bass fan, who’s been waiting for an Arch Origin release!

First up, ‘Dusty’ opens with a smooth, sultry half time drum groove. Warm subtle chords and swells are paired with a classic-sounding MC over the top. Wasting no time, it drops straight into rumbling sub bass and a solid drum break, with various counterpoint synth lines draping the track. Overall, there is something truly nostalgic to this track – despite all being freshly combined elements. ‘Escapism ft. Anna-Eva’ saw it’s first release on last years Soul Sessions Vol. 2, however Anna-Eva’s vocals breathe fresh life into this crisp liquid roller. Her longing, soulful phrases couple effortlessly with the warm synth and strings. Meanwhile ‘Urban Periphery’ opens with sparse, clicking percussion, and an ethereal vocal sample – with a drum fill giving way to this deep, techy roller. At the half-way mark ‘Recluse ft. Mr. Porter’ kicks off with melancholic, airy tones – perfectly matched by Mr. Porter’s wistful, hauntingly processed vocals. Varied percussion…‘Empyrean’ serves as a soothing interlude between tracks, with its bubbling synths, and gritty half-tempo edge – as well as a welcome aural change in the EP format of the genre. Title track ’Value Shift’ sees a dreamy pad open to driving percussion, whilst a sampled speech talks to us about values, an interesting theme in this day and age!

Having played our stage at the first ever Hospitality In The Park festival last year, as well as closing off 2016 with a set at the Liquicity Winterfestival – 2017 sure looks to be a promising year for the young Dutch talent. Daniel’s production is often laden with nostalgia, wether intentional or not, it seems to always leave you with the feeling that you’ve heard it somewhere before. With that said, we’re sure the EP will resonate in the hearts and clubs of the scene for months to come.
