Scientific Records hits a quarter of a century with the third instalment in the Chilling on the Couch series.
The 25th release from the Dutch label pushes a heady mix of deep, atmospheric tracks orbiting around the outer reaches of drum & bass, featuring the likes of Brazilian legend Bungle, Scientific Records founder Mav and Microfunk Crew (Bop and Oak), who turn in a blissful remix of Naibu’s ‘Fighting for Attention’.
The Chilling on the Couch .03 LP dropped on 7 September – head to www.scientificrecords.bandcamp.com to buy, and listen below.
Thomas B is back with another set of brooding halftime and menacing low frequencies as he returns to American label Free Love Digi for the four-track Augmented Place EP.
It’s safe to say that the prolific Arizona producer feels at home on Quentin Hiatus’ imprint, where he long ago arrived at double figures for tracks released, and on his latest effort things are kept tight, dark and expressive.
The EP is heavily focused on bassweight, with the stripped-back arrangements pushing the emotional content of the music, but the wonky basses of ‘Straat’ and the breakbeat work on the title track keep the record moving on through the dream state.
