Straight off the back of Ulterior Motives recent exclusive signing to Metalheadz the production powerhouse return with the release of META010 a stand out double A side 1 that features the devastatingly immense *Lost Contact*, backed in perfect contrast with the track *Forgiven*, featuring Peta Oneir on vocals. In combination the two tracks provide the perfect taster for their widely anticipated album on Metalheadz and with output like this it is certainly easy to see why we wanted Ulterior Motive all to ourselves!
“Lost Contact” features those signature Ulterior Motive drums stepping faultlessly through a sci-fi tinged soundscape of pads, hugely infectious lead, finished off with a perfect heavy dose of low weight to deliver yet another future classic from the duo.
Backing up “Lost Contact” the AA side “Forgiven” hits that perfect point of light and dark contrast with Peta Oneir’s vocal elegance shimmering above a violent backdrop of distorted Reece to provide just as it should, music not just for the ears but music that penetrates the mind and soul, accomplished music for those that truly understand and appreciate the art.
Both sides are almost guaranteed to destroy any dance floor and definitely the kind of track to stand out head and shoulders above the rest the day after the night before.
“Lost Contact” aired exclusively by Friction on his Radio 1 show in the coveted “Fire Track” slot, testament to sheer quality of the track itself and an accolade held only for the absolute highest tier Drum and Bass releases, releases like this continue and confirm the very ethos that has made Metalheadz exactly what it is today, a label and home for the pinnacle standard in Drum and Bass Music.
