quality rolling d&b from russian collective from moscow. the style is much influenced by the traditions of good looking records. as a result we have a melodic, positive and futuristic sound, good for both: dancing and simply listening to it.
the last 12inch of this year features big bud linking up again with australias finest, the one and only greg packer. on the a side we have a straight up liquid roller called: rise... flipped with a slice of dubwise in the shape of: raining dub!
label boss big bud unearths a new talent in the shape of usas edward oberon. fatal hour fuses deep silky pads, rolling subs & late night jazz sax layered under a hypnotic rhythm. la vacca is a more brooding deep vibe with subtle bass warbles & tight percussion. expect to be in the sets of fabio, sabre & big bud.
a collaboration that has raised many eyebrows but somehow works very well... survive is the first release from a studio session between suv and big bud mixing the styles that these producers are known for this track has been rocking clubs over the last few months with big buds musical vibez and suvs trademark bass pressure combining perfectly! the flipside sees big bud rolling out what he does best, clean beats, deep bass and a heap of soul... watch out for big buds fourth solo album due to drop on soundtrax in may 09.
