reponses brand new ep is a 2 track vinyl release. relatively still unknown, this is his 4th release on ingredients, with support coming from far and wide for his previously imparted work. this ep features those little tweaks and sounds that are undoubtedly a response signature, such as the simple kick snares or the trance-like mid section and harmonious vocals, but with that cardinal growl present throughout the ep, it is easy to distinguish this as response, a name that will continue to appear in record bags throughout the scene.
we follow up our excellent first volume with another superb edition to the mise en place series.
dub phizix returns to the label where his first record was released with rainy city music and this is backed with breaks remix of splinter in your mind from the recipe book lp. skeptical serves-up a smashing vip version of blue eyes from his awesome self-titles ep, and dramatic & dbaudio take you back to old-skool metalheadz with the infectious no return.

ruffhouse follow up their last storming single with another gem for those who like it deep.
their distinct sound and arrangement comes to fruition in the shape of strangers - an unbelievable tune, that has moments throughout, culminating in a roll-out just when you think you have heard enough. on the flip the domino effect sees them revert to some straight-forward stepping drums, with their industrial cold vibe and throbbing subs.
dj support comes from dbridge, loxy, skeptical, storm, doc scott ...
ruffhouse dropped their debut on ingredients in october with >the foot / bypass< to much acclaim. already touted as a force to watch, their follow up is as good if not better!
>demand< really shows their ability to make progressive, forward thinking music and it is the unpredictability of >demand< that makes it a stand out track. >division iii< is equally as impressive, room shattering drums & almighty stabs. pressed onto 300 limited edition white vinyl.
dj support comes from break, dbridge, loxy, skeptical, dub phizix, fracture, doc scott ...
the jackal dropped like a bomb at the start of the year so we thought we d get the main man dbridge to work his production wonders and his hypnotic bass & excellent drum workout makes it a must have in the collection.
kinetic & mark recoil are 2 new guys that we wanted to introduce, their future classic >cold streets< has had heavy support from dbridge on his rinse fm shows & its murky atmospherics & sharp beats suit ingredients down to a tee.
anile has been as prolific as most in 2012 but we feel we have one of his best tracks to date. >extinction of kind< has the epic intro of old and an almighty drop, mesmerising stuff. while krakota has consistently delivered excellent releases in such a short career and >redirection< is yet another quality tune which further improves his push for stardom. we at ingredients continue our crusade for the best new talent and what we feel is their best music.

villem has quietly crept up on the d&b scene. the bristol based producer has had releases on ingredients, breaks symmetry & more recently on samurai recordings. his positive attitude to the dance floor comes through without the need to become too cliched. >spring back< is very original, with its use of the payback synth and jazz horns, but then switching to a big dance floor roll out. while >acouphenes< has a real funky rhythm and is a great break work out. this talented producer is in for a promising career.
with a good reputation for finding some of the best new producers in drum & bass, ingredients records deliver another 12 inch showcasing two new recruits. kodo has delivered a gem of a tune with >the jackal< – having had huge support for the last 6 months, this is a great slice of current drum & bass executed brilliantly. meanwhile tyrones monster >behemoth< would sit comfortably on most big labels right now, its huge sub rolls under clinical drums & concludes another vital ingredient into your record collection. support comes from hype, jubei, marcus intalex, klute, phobia.
sebastian krakota has quietly set about his mission to dnb greatness in a short space of time. he has already featured on critical’s ‘modulations’ series, cia and his massive “be myself” on our ‘recipe book lp’ in the summer made everyone take note. this is his first full solo 12” and what a belter it is. “scraper” is a superb dj tool, straight to the point with it’s high energy pads and killer bass drop. while “tunnel vision” is a lighter affair, with an uplifting vibe. both tracks are very current & shows how much this young dj has to offer already.

big tune! so much attention this year has been on the minimal sounds within drum & bass. skeptical, a name creeping up the chain, has really honed this skill of keeping it minimal yet powerful. >cold one< is arguably his finest tune to date. bringing back the hoovers, while delivering a totally fresh style, this is a must have tune. dub phizix from manchester, is another new name, but with a slew of releases on big labels pending it wont be long before he becomes a buy on sight artist. this co-lab with skeptical is absolutely dangerous, watch the bassbins, i am telling ya!
