As well as being home to a revered university, Cambridge boasts the residency of a certain calibre of drum & bass producer – the likes of Nu:Tone, Commix, Logistics, In:Most, Saikon… the list goes on.
We can now add to that list one Pete Jolliffe Thomas, with his neuro-infused take on drum & bass. After an exciting inception the Clashtone member neatly boasts a forthcoming single on our own Soulvent, with 2 tracks offering up an equal lashing of low-end.
Howl sees Jolliffe thrash together crunchy drums, beefy basslines and sharp words courtesy of Linguisitics to provide a high tempo, thought-provoking floor filler. Swirling synths and high energy percussion will give Soulvent fans a pleasant surprise.
Profoundis shows Jolliffe’s ability to bring different tempos to the mix with more haunting vocal samples, underpinned by perfectly-crafted, rolling percussion and cascading basslines.
You will certainly be pleasantly surprised by this break from the norm on Soulvent Records. Jolliffe is one to watch in 2019. Howl // Profoundis is out on 22nd March in all good stores.
