sv055: in:most – bonsai/fade out ft. tempza & walk:r (out 07.06)

Marking their fifth release on the imprint, the dynamic duo that is In:Most are back on Soulvent with another pair of bangers for your listening pleasure. Continuing to roll out their Jekyll & Hyde-esque couplings of late – this release showcases the ever-maturing sound of this Cambridge based duo. Bailey Greer and Josh Croft have been extra busy of late, reviving the famed Spoonfed d&b night at the Fez Club in their hometown, after a 5 year hiatus. We strongly recommend you get down to one of these shows in the coming months!

Bonsai further develops the sound the pair have been perfecting since tracks like Yesterday, Pieces and Crimson Eyes. Inviting pads and pianos ease us into a kinetic, fluid arpeggio which forms the backbone of the track. Frangible breaks coupled with tasty bass swells accentuate this driving track, while a syncopated take on the lead switches up the end of the track.

Fade Out features the vocals of Hybrid Minds’ go-to-mic-man Tempza, alongside Northern up-and-comer Walk:r, (who’s name should certainly be on your radar!). A spacey, ominous intro teases tear-out bass synths which don’t disappoint on the drop. Swelling, punctuated textures of low-end are interspersed with dynamic patterns of varying percussion and glitched-out fills. The second drop further fleshes out the theme, with unsettling samples underlining the track’s tech-driven foundations.

Available in all good stores from the 7th of June, don’t miss out on another accomplished offering from this exciting duo.

sv054 – ac13 – drag race ep (out 10th may)

At Soulvent we simply love working with new talent. AC13 is a young producer hailing out of Brighton. His track on the 5 Years of Soulvent LP really hit us right in the feels for angrier, sub-laden drum & bass – so much so that we invited him back for a fruitful 4-track fumble.

Bad Feeling, as the title might suggest, could certainly leave you with a nauseous notion as tight-knit percussive patterns pair with an absolute stinker of a bassline. Ruthless breaks meet simple yet effective open hi-hats and snaps – all nicely rounded out by a 2-note synth line.

Lightyears is a chance for AC13 to show his range, a liquid-tinged break from the all-out sonic assault it follows. An absolutely mesmerising piano chord progression and top-line melt into a sparse scape of clicks and bass, backed by luscious reverse pads.

Title track Drag Race has a wonkier feel – stuffed full of dissonant low-end and screeching samples. We know this one will have DJs racing for a wheel up!

Lazer Quest already boasts BBC Radio 1 support from the likes of Danny Byrd, shudderingly-satisfying gutter bass paired with playful saxophone notes that pierce through the trademark AC13 percussion rounds. A sublime way to round out this heavyweight EP.

Out in all good stores on 10th May 2019.

sv053 – dilemma – gone too soon ft. robert manos (out now)

Brighton based blue-haired-beat-crafter Dilemma has been making waves of late in the drum & bass community with her incredibly mature take on the genre. With heavy support from the likes of Random Movement, Calibre and Bailey, releases on Flight Patterns and DNBArena alongside featuring in UKF’s 2019 ‘Ones to watch’ – we’re thrilled to announce her new single Gone Too Soon.

The title track features the soothing vocal tones of liquid legend, Robert Manos. It’s cleverly layered intro and progressive elements build gradually, setting the gorgeous framework for Manos’ lyrics to shine beautifully over the rolling drums and syncopated piano lines.

Limbo takes us on a more ominous and soothing journey into the realms of liquid. Echoing vocal stabs and piano licks take the lead with a smooth rolling bassline and drum track to match.

You can grab this pair of luscious liquid rollers from all good stores and streaming services from 19.04.2019!
