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.

BALATRON returns to METHLAB RECORDINGS to debut the second single from of his upcoming IÐAVÖLLUR LP with a pair of titanic tracks–HUGINN // MUNINN. Following the release of SHOCK//STRAIGHT THUGGIN’ on the imprint earlier in the year, as well as the interceding release of the DAT SHII EP on Sublimate Records, BALATRON displays here his command of the uniquely powerful halftime sound that straddles both nostalgia and the bleeding edge, forward-facing of the subgenre that has become synonymous with his name. Each of the tracks within move with mythic poise at a vast scale, revealing a small but impactful slice of the sonic saga yet to come.
HUGINN’s portentous vocals shudder under their own weight, gaining traction as they deliver a single resounding verse, summoning a bassline that advances with glacial force alongside a flurry of slicing snares. MUNINN predicates itself upon a similar tenet of abundant low end frequencies, its grinding bass tinged with a ravenous hunger as jagged highs haunt the soundscape’s upper ranges with their cutting call.
With HUGINN//MUNINN, BALATRON has takes another step in recounting the full tale of IÐAVÖLLUR, issuing a pair of intimately connected tracks that serve as the omen for LP’s arrival at years end. Augmented via the increasingly advanced METHLAB RECORDINGS, the transmission is as effective as it is ruthless, delivering a resounding echo of the upcoming full project.
