kid dramas sound is one thats taken giant strides in the last couple of years, first showcased in his metalheadz debut which came in the form of last years trife ep. building upon that is the addition of the enforcer ep set for release this september and consisting of 4 chunky slabs of hard-hitting drum and bass interlaced with beautiful pads and soundscapes, a combination very few successfully execute.
introducing a new label, with a direction, we proudly present dispatch blueprints, returning for the second release with kid drama and the one and only skeptical.
bringing the deeper sound to the forefront, it made natural sense to welcome back label stalwart skeptical, whose sub centered sound has remained an inspiration since his dispatch debut in 2010 and subsequent output on labels like exit, r&s and soul:r.
when combined with the eclecticism of kid drama, it makes for a stunning fusion, developing the blueprints foundation and delving further into the lower frequencies.
setting the path for our new imprint in the best way, with some of our very favourite artists, we are proud to showcase both skeptical & kid drama on dispatch blueprints.
introducing a new label, with a direction, we proudly present dispatch blueprints, with the debut release coming from one of our favourite artists, kid drama.
taking a deeper, more old skool inspired route, blueprints sets itself apart from the other dispatch labels, with a stronger emphasis on organic progression and building the vibe from scratch, savouring all the intricacies and adjustments along the way.
we’ve always been lovers of the roots / heritage sound that so many artists and labels have inspired us with until today so we’re feeling privileged in being able to showcase this sound via our new imprint.
reaching out to the discerning listeners, with an ethos all too often lost in the impatient modern day, kid drama pays his due respects, opening dispatch blueprints in the best possible way, with two classic tracks with all the emotion of the late 90s.
kid drama’s debut metalheadz release is one that is set to shake up this 4-year-old alias as he heads in a direction that’s slightly more focussed on the dancefloor, whilst managing to subtly retain some of the elements that have seen him become so loved in the deeper and more experimental side of drum and bass. the ‘trife ep’ proves how much of a talent kid drama is, from the savage bassline in ‘brutal d’ to the late 90s techstep vibes of ‘articulation’ all the way to ‘payback’, which is a track that could have easily come out under his and boddika’s instra:mental moniker. this is an extremely well-rounded project and one we’re delighted to be releasing on metalheadz.
the fourfit series from soul:r gathers pace with a second release that is packed with label debuts as lsb, anile, fd and kid drama all step up to deliver some high class productions for the contemporary drum and bass selectors.
damon kirkham aka kid drama made his first steps into the 170 bpm realms as one half of the game changing production partnership instra:mental. together with dbridge their autonomic podcasts went down in history for breathing new life back into a somewhat stagnant underground drum and bass scene, showcasing their material alongside many other producers and pricking up many ears that had long since given up on the genres increasingly formulaic output. after a few years working under his jon convex moniker, he returns to the higher tempos as kid drama feeling there is still a lot of uncharted territory left to explore. together with dbridge he has embarked on a new podcast series (heart drive) which again aims to showcase their new material and that of like minded producers. his first release as kid drama *one six eight* appeared on the mosaic vol 2 lp followed by a remix of one of his own jon convex tracks on convex industries *with you* but here we have his debut full release as kid drama including collaborations with om unit and hands like crime.
incl rush rmxs!! this big tune comes as a mixed bag remix-package - there seems to be a mix for just about everyone. besides a full vocal re-rub that sounds like tech-house turned disco by dean coleman, there’s also a harder funky house vocal pass (josh da funky 1&steve smooth) plus two hard techno mixes by dj rush in typical high octane style
shrunken heads” is something we were just kicking around at the time the label was starting to take shape, we felt it to be a good narrative of our influences and visions of how we see acrylic taking shape in the future. kid drama has kindly put together a killer remix for us to celebrate the labels beginning. he has been a massive inspiration for us all musically over the years and we are very humbled to have him on board with the first output. thanks hugely damon for taking time out of your schedule to do that. “motion design” came together fairly quickly, it was made with intent to homage the sound of the old guard we admire to o er our own contribution to that sound. all vinyl are strictly limited edition, and limited to 300 pieces per run. there will never be a repressing of any series. once each release is gone, they are gone forever. mastered and cut by beau at teneightseven. artwork and design by dave knapton at multiplex
across the length and breadth of the albums 28‐,,,track span, mosaic vol.2 is the second chapter of label boss dbridges mission statement to marry disparate sounds on a mixed‐,,,artist album whilst triumphantly steering clear of convolution. the albums roll call lists luminaries emanating from all spheres of electronic music ‐,,, ranging from us footwork impresario and frequent jimmy edgar collaborator machinedrum, who chimes in with a soulful synth‐,,,heavy jam on *the palace* to the increasingly potent combination of om unit & sam binga with the pair continuing in their rich vein of form on the label and wistfully amalgamating influences from jungle, dubstep and funk on album highlight *triffidz*.
die fromme geduld hat sich gelohnt - das >gute leben< ist jetzt. auch wenn die im juli erschienene >waiting for the good life< dank gewohnter qualitaet und einem exorbitanten gastkatalog, die dürreperiode ausgesprochen vergnueglich in kurzweilige vergessenheit geraten ließ, hat die neugierde auf den dritten full lenght player des domstadt produzenten-doppels jr & ph7 damit nur noch mehr floriert!

the final record from oakland, cas psychedelic quartet, the gris gris, was recorded live at the warehouse where greg ashley resides. the twilight had come and the fat lady sang. the final bell tolled for the brightest sons of the oaklandish psychedelic revolution. here is the final piece to that hazy, mysterious, yet strangely familiar sound this band created. with songs from both records played with ferocity and sonic mayhem, the story of the gris gris is here. bright. swirling. gnarly. electric...
