Dirty drum breaks and filthy synth bass lines smoothed over with spacial textures; these are some of the traits that define the DNB entity known as INVALID. Southern California native turned Colorado resident Jonathan Loeser, a/k/a/ INVALID, is a rising producer with plans to provide the global drum and bass community with original releases indefinitely. Over the past decade, INVALID has acquired the skills and equipment that modern caliber drum and bass demands, both as an avid drummer and as a live audio engineer. Jonathan is a member of The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). With the support of music lovers worldwide, INVALID has plans to offer digital downloads, CDs, and limited edition vinyl runs on all future releases.

The Video and Release

We are putting the video up here first because personally we really like it !!! With clips from various creative commons sources, put together by BC#9 himself it sets a great backdrop to a great track.

Two Drum+Bass producers come together to create the story and sound of Jungle Demon and Selecta, the galactic DJ. The video and the track tell the story of Selecta and Jungle Demon as they ride through the lost city. The video was created by Jason Bakes a/k/a BC#9, using clips created by multiple artists . The voice of Vincent Price is featured in a clip from the film “House On Haunted Hill”. The artwork for the release was created by Xtene Sixtene & INVALID . Video clips courtesy of Alberto Mielgo, Beeple and Ash Thorp. Jungle Demon was Produced and mixed by Jonathan Loeser a/k/a INVALID @invalidproductions.

Mastered By Nik Hrycyk @Amethyst Studios UK. 2019.

We think this track has both a modern, as well as a classic feel to it, with an energetic vibe that takes you on a journey. The video helps to project that alongside the music. But if you just want the soundcloud link then here you go –

Current Value & MISSIN- SENTINEL 001 [Methlab]

MethLab proudly launch the first advance single from their upcoming SENTINEL VA LP, a release that encompasses almost the entire MethLab roster, plus some special guests, and serves as the companion to MethLab // SENTINEL Tour, recently announced by UKF. Leading with an immense pair of tracks from veteran CURRENT VALUE and highly exciting newcomer MISSIN, the first single from an LP that’s set to be unforgettable, lands with a mighty bass shock, setting the scene for the audio voyage that’s yet to come.

Methlab brought Drum & Bass fans a present for Christmas with the release of the first single from the upcoming SENTINEL VA featuring a pair of powerful tracks by CURRENT VALUE & MISSIN. ISOTROPY features CURRENT VALUE’s distinctive & dynamic sonic palette, contrasting a beautiful & gliding melodic section with a furious flurry of sonic force as it shifts between the two extremes in an instant. MISSIN’s SPLIT is by contrast more direct with its intention, maintaining an ominous atmosphere which builds into a powerful halftime drop so characteristic of his sound.

Together, the two tracks are an exciting taste of what’s to come on the full SENTINEL VA, which is due out in 2019 on METHLAB RECORDINGS, featuring the talents of the labels roster nearly in full across its full breadth.

Synged- Vanish in the Deep EP [IN:DEEP]

SYNGED premieres his debut EP on IN:DEEP Music with the release of the VANISH IN THE DEEP EP. A rising talent within the Austrian drum & bass scene, 19 year old SYNGED spent much of his childhood in his father’s music studio learning the skills that now propel his career forwards to this day. After starting to make his own music at the young age of 12, SYNGED quickly found his passion for Drum & Bass and has not looked back since. Now, he brings his debut EP to IN:DEEP for a full display of his subtly energetic sound.

SAY WHAT’s sirens open the EP with a dark atmosphere before plunging into a deep & stripped back beat augmented by the interjections of tech influenced bases. The titular VANISH IN THE DEEP intensifies the attitude of its predecessor, diverting additional attention to its booming drumbeat whilst still retaining its carefully crafted depths. O2 closes the EP as it breathes with anticipation, snapping to nothingness before strutting out with a funk fueled beat driven by a colorful snare.

With the VANISH IN THE DEEP EP, SYNGED makes a powerful debut as a rising producer on the IN:DEEP RECORDINGS label. Within, his precise sound is exemplified in full, spotlighting SYNGED within as a rising name within Drum & Bass.

Drumsound & Bassline Smith- Booyaka EP [Technique Recordings]

We’ve barely had time to catch our breath after the shattering impact of “The Bomb”, Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s huge collaboration with Tantrum Desire. Even so, the Technique bosses are already back with a four-track EP containing ammo straight from their tried and tested dubplate armoury.

The title track “Booyaka” opens in an unsettling landscape of retro sci fi tension, as pads and bleeps ride the building percussion. The approach of mayhem is signalled by thunderclap kicks exploding through the system, and it’s time for all real ravers to step forward. Surging waves of bass crash into the dance, and as Drumsound & Bassline Smith add evolving layers of breaks into the mix to hype things further, it’s game over.

“Unity” is infused with the flavours of jazz, soul, and funk as horns, keys, guitar licks, and vocal stabs set the tone in the intro. Just in case you were expecting some laid-back liquid groove, though, DBS quickly dispel that idea with a kick-build that delivers us right into high-energy mode. Those infectiously bubbling basslines and rolling drums could only have come from producers steeped in the jungle foundations. This is a classic-style roller that’s perfectly configured for 2019 dancefloors.

Next, the soaringly epic opening of “Straight from the Underground”, made from subtle hints of percussion and sweeping choral timbres delivers a hands in the air moment that’s going to have deejays everywhere wheeling up to run it from the top. When Drumsound & Bassline Smith suddenly throw in an angst-inducing discord and a dramatic build that drops into twisting and modulating bassline savagery, absolute banger status is assured.

“Mash it Up” is a stone-cold killer. Militant drums and anthemic orchestral chords immediately let us know this is warrior music. Drumsound & Bassline Smith aren’t playing. As the eponymous vocal clip leads us into the drop, we’re assaulted with a multi-strike combo of evolving basslines and break-laden drums. Taking elements from jungle and neuro, they’ve created something fresh that’s going to hurt you whatever your sub-genre of choice. You’re going to want to check this.

Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s precision-tooled basses and high-energy break deployment are well known, and their craft really comes to the fore on this EP. There’s high-level studio science at work here, married perfectly with a natural, raw, junglist vibe. That’s why the “Booyaka EP” is going to connect with real DnB heads everywhere.

Dushi - Love & Happiness Remix EP [Urban Wildlife]

New Release – Dushi – Love & Happiness Remix EP

Urban Wildlife double down on Dushi’s sensational ‘Love & Happiness’ with a remix EP, bringing on board three top-rate producers to spin the track in different directions.

‘Love & Happiness’ was introduced to the world on Urban Wildlife Vol 3 earlier this year, and proved such a hit for the German label that they have invited Smuskind, T:Base and Ly Da Buddah to get on remix duties and keep the momentum flowing.

Smuskind twists the original into a brooding half-timer, T:Base adds layers of liquid gold and Ly Da Buddah muddies things up with a minimal jump-up take straight out of the left field.
