Loadstar – Red Rock / On The Wheels Review

The newest release from Loadstar comprises two new pieces: ‘Red Rock’ and ‘On The Wheels’. Red Rock starts as a pad filled atmospheric journey but quickly descends into chaos when it drops into a grinding bassline surrounded by scattered hihats and vocal chops. However, the flip side ‘On The Wheels’ lives up to its name, with the vocal chops reverberating throughout amongst the insane bassline and solid drum hits guaranteed to get the crowd moving. This EP is yet again another smasher, and is definitely one to watch out for over the summer.



Viper Recordings 100K SoundCloud Mix by LoKo

This is a celebration mix for Viper Recordings reaching 100,00 subscribers on youtube, mixed by LoKo. It is an unrelenting journey through some of Viper’s best tracks over the past 11 years. After listening to it at least 20 times, I would say that is expertly mixed, with drops and double drops throughout the 100 tracks and 49 minutes. Essential listening.

Technimatic – Side Hustle (Preview)

Released as a free download as a preview for their upcoming album ‘Better Perspective’, this song is a masterpiece in its own right. Rolling out with chunky kicks and snares with a pad-like vocal sample, it drops into an intricate groove with a clean bass and reesy chops and stabs. In typical technimatic fashion, it breaks down before the second drop which is just sublime. If this is anything to go by, their next album will more than surpass expectations after their excellent debut LP in 2014.

Dimension – Automatik (Preview)

This has been making waves in the dnb scene over the last few weeks, and for good reason because it is one of the best songs I have heard in a while. Masterfully executed, with uplifting vibes and a classic dimension bassline, and crisp drums and pads filling out the higher frequencies, dimension is back with a vengeance in 2016. Just waiting on the flip side Hydraulic now.
