shadow child returns with his connected collaborations album. album sampler 2 of 2 features his official rework of the future sound of london’s seminal ‘papua new guinea’, ‘err’ offering it s bouncing bassline and skippy 909 hats with huxley and finally ‘gacid’, which is possibly the friendliest acid tune you’ll hear with the elusive supertanker.
3 of shadow child’s connected collaboration album tracks get a makeover from rimbaudian, mj cole and bodhi. rising talent rimbaudian reworks the only solo track from the project, steak fingers, and takes the original bumping stripped back groove on a more melodic journey with its stunning arpeggios and new string parts. the backbone of the original remains but be prepared to take a trip to a new stratosphere, with his stripped version which is included too. bodhi step up next to remix gacid, twisting and turning the original acid patterns and grooves to make a special rework that gives a nod to early detroit with new drum programming and pads. the welsh duo bring the heat. mj cole delivers what must be one of his finest remixes. um the collaboration with bodhi, already offers a trip that flirts with jungle, lo-fi and the hypnotic but mj cole brings his signature vibe to the table with new keys, groove and provides something that feels as if it belongs in the realms of his seminal hit sincere.
food music welcomes a1 bassline to the label to release his first lp - technicality. the album’s title draws from the club night “technicality”, a monthly drum & bass night at herbal in east london, which is run by chris inperspective and continued the sound of early reinforced and metalheadz records as well as pushing new forward thinking music. the album is centred around growing up as a teenager discovering this jungle/drumfunk sound through his college friend rahim (lab creation), where the likes on fold, ben ufo, breakage would attend the club. in addition to well received records on dirtybird, pets recordings and his collaborative work with leon vynehall as laszlo dancehall, the album is a stamp on a1’s sound and his influences from his teenage years to growing up and discovering house and techno.
having made a firm footing for themselves, were excited to bring you bodhis rave inspired track 88. 88 incorporates a staple rave synth line that immediately grabs all ears in the club. already proving to be a go to track from kry wolfs dna compilation, were bringing this underground anthem to you on 12inch with a fresh new remix from jauge.
