2DB are back. For those who aren’t aware, this is the alter-ego of award-winning production team Drumsound & Bassline Smith. Yeah, them. So listen closely.
First up is the title track Motion. Epic strings and piano instantly draw you in before mid-range synths and a building kick-drum progression signal the fact that there’s an iron fist in that velvet glove. And that’s just the warm-up.
Next we have Faith in You, with old skool vocal snippets and bleeps swirling into the twenty-first century funk drop.
Then we go deeper with the sci-fi Pink Floyd. This is time travel through the sounds of mid-nineties jungle. This is one for the true heads, for those that know, before 2DB take you into the bouncing bassline vibes of Teethgrinder.
Then as if you needed more, there’s a bonus: Paris-based DJ Yox’s monster rework of the now-classic Original Sound System Style. From the deep to the dirty, from the classic to the modern, the Technique bosses have packaged it all into one EP that you need in your ears.
