This is an absolute stellar piece of unofficial remix. It has got to be up there for me as one of the best drum and bass songs I’ve ever heard. The whizzing synths over the beautiful beats are just incredible, it really creates a particular feel to Mario’s track.
This boppy, bouncy beat has a strong essence of life embedded within the beats. The percussion sounds like popping bubbles to me. Just me? The overall effect is a song bursting with the prospect of something new. ‘Tears’ is Submerse’s audio recreation of the feeling of being in a foreign place. New places, and new oppurtunities.
Enjoy the lovely click-clacks. I should have a vinyl copy of this release to my doorstep these next few days. I’m excited.
This is so far off the conventions of drum and bass that it’s barely recognisable to those who do not listen properly enough. It’s very nice, to say the least.
It sounds a little Synkro and Bop to me, but seems to have another texture of it’s own altogether. I’m only drawing these comparisons because I’ve just stumbled across this beauty. I would recommend watching this in 720p HD. The video goes just as well with the track. Dem vocals…
Yet another track that is telling me to buy ‘Blood Pressure’ on vinyl.
I’ve been a bit busy this last week and a bit tired of existence. Thankfully songs like this exist to put me back on track.
This is, without a doubt, leagues and leagues above almost all drum and bass songs. And then a few more leagues again. The percussion could be labelled as minimal, yet their simplicity weave a depth, and an intricate peace and bliss that I’ve never experienced before from a music genre that is commonly associated with jumping around like a lunatic. There have been many that come close, but never like this. The punctuated bass that pounds only in bursts also adds to the deep, enveloping soundscape. I find it hard to fully concentrate when listening to this, and am carried away.
And, of course, Veela’s vocals are just as important. Beautiful doesn’t accurately cover them. Ethereal may be closer. Listen, and get lost.
I’m considering buying the compilation ‘Blood Pressure’ from Med School Music that this has been released on, simply so I can own this beauty on vinyl.
I discovered Ficci yesterday through Rotation Deep’s soundcloud - it’s relatively recent material. This song and 3 other corkers are on the Case:3 EP, which is unbelievably Ficci’s debut. His production is without a doubt, pin point perfect.
I’ve never heard a drum and bass producer put piano samples to such beautiful use. The bass is throttling, yet does not swallow up the other sounds, and the minimalist, clean percussion is reminiscent of Synkro and Indigo, if not a little better. All in all, definitely worth a thorough listen.
This particular track features a bliss bassline with carefully selected and executed vocal cuts. And as I said, that piano…
Lovely, liquid drum and bass remix from Owsey of Stumbleine’s ‘Cassette’. The original is a hazy audio dream, in Stumbleine’s signature style. Owsey’s remix adds heavy yet deceptively smooth bass, sun-soaked synths and a sped-up remixed vocal cut that’s to die for.
The sample at the beginning is the from ‘The Notebook’.
This is my first proper deep listen to any minimal drum and bass, really. I’m already very impressed by this track, which, after the reading the name, does sound like it is submerged, and pulsing underwater, with ear-clutching bass overriding.
The phrase ‘less is more’ has never been more appropriate. The various different types of percussion used together make this a seriously bliss piece of ambient/minimal chill out drum and bass. It’s like Bop but with way more flavour.
Venture wrote this about the original: “When i first heard this tune i loved it, and feel really honoured to be able to remix it. I’ve tried to keep as much as the original in tact, but yet still give it a good remix.” I’d say he succeeded.
