Drumsound & Bassline Smith – Thug Killer [Technique Recordings]

You’ve probably already heard Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s first Technique release of 2017, although you might not have clocked that it was them on the buttons. So, having chalked up Radio 1 airplay from behind the scenes on Youngman’s genre-bending Sorry, the label bosses are stepping into the spotlight themselves. And they’re definitely making their presence felt.

We step into darkness immediately. To be fair, you couldn’t really expect anything else from a tune called Thug Killer. As those dissonant pads and apprehension-building hints of mechanised percussion give way to the eponymous vocal clip, we’re left in no doubt that this is going to be a monster of a track. Then, that machine-gun staccato synth punctuated by gut-wrenching bass sweeps is an irresistible signal for ravers to step up.

The metronomic punch of drums and the lethal throb of sub-bass strikes in the drop, and we’re into full on screwface territory. But there’s more. A police siren breakdown adds a whole new dimension, and when that handgun-action sound takes us into the almighty build for the second drop, the levels are raised once more. Even in this era of quick mixing, the discerning selector might want to let this one play for maximum effect.

So, if this release has set out the template for 2017, we can expect big things. Drumsound & Bassline Smith closed off last year with an armoury-worth of releases across multiple labels, and they’ve barely paused for breath before going back in hard. This release is going to set some raves alight and it’s clear that we’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s to come.

Document One – Revolution EP and Technique Recordings Podcast

This month we are featuring a group from the legendary label TECHNIQUE RECORDINGS called DOCUMENT ONE. First off we have their featured podcast, and also details about their forthcoming release !

Sept 2014 – Technique Podcast – Mixed By Document One

Document One take over this months Podcast ahead of their debut Drum & Bass release on Technique Recordings entitled ‘Revolution’EP.

Document One have already proven their credentials in the world of electronic dance music. Their songwriter’s instinct for harmony and melody, melded seamlessly with the powerful beats and bass required by discerning dancefloors mean that they’ve quickly built an impressive reputation. Between their genre-spanning remix work for names like Rob Zombie, Moby and Professor Green, their rave and radio ubiquity and their global DJing schedule, they’ve made waves across the scene. And now they’ve landed on Technique for some D&B business.

So this is Document One’s warning shot. This is their statement of intent that they have some lethal D&B moves and they’re not afraid to use them. Get to know their junglist side and brace yourselves because, for Document One on Technique Recordings, this is only the first assault.

TECH 108 – Document One – Revolution EP
RELEASE DATE: 14th Sept 2014

Document One have already proven their credentials in the world of electronic dance music. Their songwriter’s instinct for harmony and melody, melded seamlessly with the powerful beats and bass required by discerning dancefloors mean that they’ve quickly built an impressive reputation. Between their genre-spanning remix work for names like Rob Zombie, Moby and Professor Green, their rave and radio ubiquity and their global DJing schedule, they’ve made waves across the scene. And now they’ve landed on Technique for some D&B business.
First off is Revolution. Effervescent natural samples set the
scene, but then Document One signal danger with the onset of a militant beat. Synthetic glitches disturb the peace even further, and then things are teched up to breaking point until the drop strikes hard. And when it does, it tells the story of a serene melodic landscape being defaced with digital warpaint. This is marching music, proving that these boys aren’t playing at D&B, they’re doing it properly.
Then we go sci-fi with Are We Alone. And this is no gentle saunter through the solar system, it’s the soundtrack to a harsh and brutal alien invasion and subsequent enslavement of the population. Driving bass and mid call and response patterns force ravers to move at sub-point, while stuttering drums add an extra layer of insistence. This is a dark and technical sound, but with all the energy required when the big room needs a hype injection.
And just in case you thought Document One had left their melody at Technique’s front door, we have something cut from a different mould with Kindness for Weakness, showcasing the jazz-infused voice of Sam Friend. Aficionado-pleasing drum edits bounce around elegant string and piano samples and subtle synth ornaments. Simultaneously, low end weight provides a counterpoint to Sam’s soaring vocals. Altogether, this is a display of expertise from a crew who have mastered their craft.
So this is Document One’s warning shot. This is their statement of intent that they have some lethal D&B moves and they’re not afraid to use them. Get to know their junglist side and brace yourselves because, for Document One on Technique Recordings, this is only the first assault.
