As we stumble into October, wondering where the hell 2016 went exactly, the unmistakeable chill of English weather returns to London’s air, and drops all of our moods somewhat. Fortunately, Bristol-based Imba is dropping more than temperatures, with his debut single ‘Ravana/From Within’ set to light up the dance-floor this coming winter. Having made quite the impression with his track ‘Persistence featuring Leah Costello’ – the Liquifyah crew member has delivered 2 solid tracks in this release.
‘Ravana’ captures the essence of this seasonal change, with chilling ethereal vocals, tonal percussion and menacing textures giving body the warming, rattling bassline. ’From Within’ meanwhile is more suitable of cold winters morning. Cold melodic tones usher in cooling pads, letting a warm sub bass take point under a drum break with an undeniably old school flavour.
This pair of solid rollers is sure to bring Imba to the forefront of the newcomers breaking out into the scene this year.
