There are amen breaks galore on the new record from the NexGen Music Group stable, the jungle-inspired Fear Nothing EP from Dubstitutes.
The duo is a collaboration between drum & bass veteran Rob Sparx and MC Task – who have released music on NexGen’s sister label Migration – and the four tracks that make up their EP wear ragga and jungle influences proudly on their sleeve.
Amen breaks are a constant across the record, which dives from catchy vocals on ‘Takeover’ to plunging basslines on ‘Another Future’. Check out the fresh tracks here, and head over to https://www.nexgenmusicgroup.com/ to grab the EP.
Opening up proceedings for 2016 on NexGen Music Group’s flagship drum and bass imprint is one of their stables most prolific artists, Rob Sparx. Considered a veteran producer, Rob cut his teeth on making Drum and Bass in the early noughties before building a substantial dubstep discography on his Migration Recordings imprint. Returning to his 170BPM roots Sparx demonstrates no loss of passion for the genre as presented on his latest ‘Dreamin’ EP .
Sparx showcases his appreciation for the Jungle influence roots “Jah”, while “Dreaming” and “Navigator” pack in the rolling percussion and drum break edits of days yonder. EP opener, “Archon” demonstrates a heavier approach with as a dance floor stepper with sweeping throbs of bassline laying down the groove.
