Frankee has been working hard in the studio recently, diligently crafting these next few cuts and creating his biggest body of work to date. After a brief hiatus, he’s returned to the scene with a whole record collection of tracks which symbolise his meteoric climb. The first selection is ‘Romana’, a stepping stone towards his first LP on revered imprint Ram Records. After delivering cuts for Ram’s sister-label Program, he was signed exclusively to one of the most monumental dance music outputs in the world. Since then, he’s grown from strength to strength, creating crunching, club bangers like ‘Gully’, as well as liquid rollers like ‘Love & Peace’. His diversity is astounding and this carries through into his forthcoming LP, due to be released later this year.

Frankee is also a notorious figure on the club circuit. Having performed at the world’s largest drum & bass gathering, including Prague’s Let it Roll and Russia’s Pirate Station his presence behind the decks is just as diverse as his studio releases and his first LP will certainly reflect this.

‘Romana’ is deceptive in its intro, moving out on soft instrumentals, plucking notes and a female-lead vocal melody. However, the track quickly switches, crashing forward on grating snare with a bassline that quickly zips between the mix. Pitched up synth cuts between layers, giving you a brief respite before the record once again crashes with vibrating subs. ‘Romana’ is the perfect reintroduction into Frankee’s versatility, one that’s sure to bring him even further onto the forefront.

DC Breaks return following the success of their vocal-show stopper Everybody, a track which has dominated stages across European festivals for the past twelve months. Although this time, as its name suggests, the duo return to the Underground, bringing out the sound which made them so infamous in the early days. With a debut LP slowly getting closer, the next few singles will solidify just how diverse the album will prove to be. Whether it’s the stadium prowess of Everybody, or the angrily stomping beat peddles of Underground, their palette of musicality continues to impress.
 
Underground is a stomping, biting call to arms which is set to explode subs on impact. Featuring the heavy bass notes which resound throughout the nastier side of DC Breaks’ discography, they create a dark atmosphere and build up for a foreboding intro. With warbling hooks and a bassline that surges with power, it also expands their dancefloor appeal by giving a flipside to the likes of ‘Infinity’ and ‘Gambino’. Featuring a more jump-up undertone, you’ll find this set blazer making an appearance at any distortion driven crescendo.

 

 

DC Breaks never fail to make their impact through grinding slabs of sonic and Underground is no different. Be careful what you wish for, because DC Breaks will deliver beats harder than you could imagine.

The second part of Mind Vortex’s digital four-track EP is once again reforming their reputation as heavyweight producers whose music detonates both club subs and festival stages across the world. Having already seen support on Ram Records head honcho Andy C’s Beats1 show for the their first instalment Shall We Begin, as well as radio airplay from BBC Radio 1 tastemaker Friction, they’ve reinstated their titles this year and added to their already impressive repertoire of music.

Touring extensively, they’ve pushed their sound into every corner, ensuring their most resounding tracks have become household names throughout the dance music circuit. And these tracks will be no different, already peppered in the biggest sets and proving why they’re becoming an impenetrable force within the electronic scene.

The Day After takes on a different vibe from its predecessor, rolling out on a note sequence which slowly becomes underpinned by stabbing relays of synth. Different from every other body of work, but still holding together the sound which made Mind Vortex so infamous, they incorporate distorted vocals and a stocky bassline. Mind Vortex proves their production ingenuity with The Day After, keeping an uplifting crescendo whilst delivering a cascading breakdown that will serve as a sonic punch in any late night set.

Following the success of their Against the Grain and Colours EP, this new four track format will pedestal the creativity which made Mind Vortex such a renowned name within the drum & bass world.
