Calyx & Teebee return with their second release of 2017 following an extensive US tour, taking it back to the sound which originally made them so notorious. Their first single from this year Ruffian stripped back the vocal-lead records found throughout their second LP and presented something more reminiscent of their darker selections. Scaramanga is no different, alongside collaborator Mortlock. And with two successful LPs on the Ram Records imprint, Scaramanga is unafraid to break out of the commercially viable paradigm and instead represents the heavier part of their drum & bass sets. The record takes you back to their roots, a welcome reimagining of the music which made them so identifiable.
A track which has already been played out behind the decks in recent months, Scaramanga opens on strung out melodies and a cleverly deceptive intro. The unnerving drive and repetitive, heavyweight bass rifts create a hard-hitting cut which is difficult to disentangle yourself from. It’s easy to see why Scaramanga has done so much damage on the dancefloor. Alongside mixing samples and snapping instrumentation, Calyx & Teebee keep hitting with every carefully constructed break, packing a mean punch.
With more releases scheduled in over the coming year, Calyx & Teebee yet again bring their slick progression and add another building block for their next offering. Thanks to tracks like Ruffian and Scaramanga, audiences both new and old will appreciate the music which made Calyx & Teebee such revered icons within their field.
