EXEPT return to the METHLAB RECORDINGS label with the release of their NEMESI EP, which stands as the ninth entry in the label’s BNKR series, exploring form and space within sonic and visual structures. NEMESI sees EXEPT return with the same devotion to sharp & uncompromising sonics that drove their powerful, and highly acclaimed first full release, the STRONGER EP, recently in summer. Sealed within the EP are four collaborative workswith artists MISSIN, SINIC, SULEX, & VISAGES. A series of relentless explorations of the deep, dark, & refined sonics central to the EXEPT sound and fundamental to BNKR, whilst also featuring the defining sounds of their contributors in a unique sonic synthesis.

EXEPT combine first with MISSIN on the shadowy SOMETHING YOU ARE, which sets off at a rapid pace through a sinister landscape of frantic synths and whispered vocals. KERNAL PANIC features the sounds of SINIC and is dominated by the attacks of a distorted snare that pulses above the track’s ascetic instrumentation. EXEPT & SULEX bring PYTHON, which features a serpentine bassline that quickly surges to the fore as it cuts through the spaces between beats. ROTARY, EXEPT’s collaboration with VISAGES, closes the EP with a steady stream of driving percussion obscured only occasionally by the chants of a distant observer.

With NEMESI, EXEPT continue their steady rise as one of the freshest pioneering figures in deep, technical drum & bass, a focus shared by the BNKR project, where Exept’s sound finds a fitting home.

AEPH & KUNG combine forces for the latest 2-tracker on METHLAB RECORDINGS, which sees the release of FOMALHAUT// UNFORMED. AEPH’s long-running career has displayed his forward thinking technical style across numerous respected labels, and KUNG’s quick and aggressive rise has brought him similar renown, with his fresh and pointed ideas making a strong mark in drum & bass. With this release, the pair unite on a pair of unusual yet devastating tracks that push forward with a powerful blend of their unique styles.

FOMALHAUT cinematic opening atmosphere offers false tranquility, with soft pads and dreamy arpeggios that quickly disperse to unleash a destructive triplet bass rhythm with hard-hitting percussive impact. UNFORMED’s angle is by contrast more irregular with its driving beat rising from similarly cinematic beginnings as it sheds impact of its predecessor in favor of a more thoughtful dancefloor.

With FOMALHAUT//UNFORMED, AEPH & KUNG deliver a fierce two track release on METHLAB RECORDINGS, placing diligent focus on the unsparing commitment to technicality & forward thinking sonic textures of the artists.

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 –

Jaskin & Uneven - 'Woodlands'/'Lost Ends' [none60 Records]

New release – Jaskin & Uneven – ‘Woodlands’/’Lost Ends’

These are mighty exciting times at none60 HQ – hot on the heels of a new album from label bosses Silent Dust comes the label debut from Jaskin & Uneven, whose single ‘Woodlands’ / ‘Lost Ends’ gets very deep very quickly.

Rounded bass tones mask an undulating bassline on sub-workout opener ‘Woodlands’, which ramps up the menace without ever releasing the tension, before ‘Lost Ends’ lightens things with sparkling pad bursts and nimble amen cuts.

Listen below and head to none60’s bandcamp to buy.

Silent Dust - Listen to the Night [none60 Records]

New Release – Silent Dust – Listen to the Night

Silent Dust are back – seven years on from their self-titled debut LP, the duo behind none60 Records bring their lunar production to bear on their second full-length, Listen to the Night.

The record pushes far beyond the duo’s drum & bass roots – although tracks like ‘Another Sunlight’ show that they are a sturdy as ever – as the production pair explore mellow half-time (‘Waiting on You’), spacey future-bass (‘Myths’) and even ditch percussion altogether on the tranquil ‘Puppet’s Dream’.

Over half of the tracks feature guest vocalists, and it is here that the record takes on a new dimension entirely as Silent Dust race onto fresh terrain to give the man on the mic something fresh to get his teeth into, touching US hip-hop on ‘$$$’ ft Terror and mangling breaks for SelfSays on ‘No One Man’.
