Leipzig label Defrostatica backs some more hometown talent with the debut EP from Schmeichel, the Alteration EP, which builds from a footwork foundation into five tracks of stellar atmospherics and genuine bassweight.
The producer has a background as a rock drummer but here is pulling influences from all sorts of bass music, unleashing a flurry of hi-hat shuffles and air pads and turning them into a unique bass-heavy storybook of an EP which fits perfectly into the current scene of new-generation Leipzig producers.

Covering the length and breadth of European drum & bass, the second release from the ambitious Urban Wildlife platform has landed, and it is bursting at the seams with 170bpm goodness.
Pushing fresh new talent from Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Croatia and the UK to the fore – alongside more established heads – there is something on the 23-track epic Urban Wildlife Vol. 2 to bother almost any sub with.
Around half of the record tends towards the liquid end of the spectrum, with the likes of Changing Faces, Javano and El Hopaness serving up delicious cuts which perfectly fit that mould. The rest of the compilation tilts further and further towards outright carnage courtesy of Brazed, Venom218 and many more sadistic synth-stranglers. Meanwhile Krytika and Smuskind can be found knocking on the boundaries of the genre.
