heavyweights causa, taiko and dark tantrums make their first appearance on circle vision alongside label boss rdg on cv006 - the first record in the various visions series, launched to present an umbrella of artists sharing the label’s vision of sound design and affection for immersive bass music.
denmark’s rdg follows his 2014 tuba nyc ep with the 12” single “solutions”. the a-side fuses the deliberate, dramatic, and impressive lyrics from l.a. s ill chill with bone chilling sub bass modulations and huge cavernous beats.
the tone gets even darker on the b-side with reverse blank, a pulsing, stabby warehouse-shattering dropper. cold mid frequency stabs masterfully drenched in reverb ring out alongside stacked drum hits. gaze ill gets the co-production credit with cessman jumping on the buttons to finish this one off.
yet again, labelowner gaze ill joins forces with the danish dubstep ambassador rdg, this time for a 4 track collaborative ep. on the aside the artists minds melt together in two pieces of dubstepscience. as the title suggests, rdg and gaze ill show what dubstep is made of with “keepin’ it real” that’s characterized by a pressuring hardness, and uplifting energy. “the zone” follows with its progressive universe that evolves in just the right way with perfect timing. the bside shows off the two artists individual skills with immense, paranoid vibrations on rdg’s “shapeshift”, and thrillingly deep basslines on gaze ill’s “combo”. the ep is a refreshing showcase of the genre’s finest offerings original sound with a wellbalanced diversity. rdg and gaze ill keep it real for this first vinyl release on cue line records.
circle vision and new world audio team up to co-release cvnwa001 - a new 4-track vinyl featuring rdg, squarewave, gaze ill and k man.
cvnwa001 marks the first vinyl output from iconic new world audio in over two years, and follows the apocalyptic, nuclear sound design from piezo and clearlight on cv003.
the two labels claim one side each on the forthcoming vinyl, with circle vision introducing classic sub workouts by rdg and gaze ill, and squarewave absorbing the flip through deep, melodic chants.
the second installment on rdgs circle vision. this time its the ironman remixes ep. 4 strong remixes from 4 strong producers: bisweed, piezo, server and d-operation drop. half-step, tribal and forward thinking dubstep.supported by: joe nice, n-type, beezy and more..
nice price deal !!! melancholy, boogified dubstep for the rave, from denmarks rdg.
rdgs production evolves the sound of dubstep while staying true to the roots of the genre. with frequently support from j:kenzo, chef, jay5ive and von d.
an all-time rave classic gets the gerd janson re-loving as he works his magic on the 1992 anthem dont go. 26 years on from it s first release, gerd takes the tempo down a notch laying out that all too familiar drum break, instantly recognisable piano line and julie mcdermott s timeless vocals. his subtle touches and added weight, behind a pounding kick, are sure to set any dancefloor alight. about as euphoric as they get - if this doesn t do the business then god help us all. on the b side, belfast s ejeca flips don t go into a heavy-hitting, rave tinged, techno bomb. his inventive sampling turns the synth stabs and vocals on their heads, making them almost indistinguishable, but no less impactful, from the original. it s over four and a half minutes till the iconic chord progression is heard in it s initial form, before ejeca throws it back into a rapid fire, industrial thumper. lastly, gerd serves up a vip dub mix echoing claps and synth lines into the stratosphere, whilst leaving the vocals at bay, save a short cry of don t go from julie towards the end of the track, allowing those anthemic elements to do the talking. a modern touch on an all-time classic from gerd with a complete reinterpretation from ejeca, this is a heavyweight release and one thats already being played by the biggest and the best out there.
cadans continues an incredibly strong run of releases with curved, his first drop for ben sims on-point hardgroove imprint. previous output for clone basement series as well as darko essers wolfskuil and balans as well as a collaboration with randomer for tasha s neighbourhood imprint have quickly established cadans (dutchman-in-london, jeroen snik) rep. on curved we re treated to yet more of the rising star s strident and sometimes disorientating rhythms. creep and dank open the ep with blistering purpose - all distorted 909 kicks and and hazy memories of strobes on seething dance floors. the title track kicks off the b-side with an aptly undulating and enjoyably unsettling slant to its main riff while the ep wraps up with chant a brilliantly effective drum-machine and vocal/horn sample workout.
new yorks avision makes his debut on ben sims hardgroove imprint with culture, an ep comprising four memorable and kinetic techno cuts and including an edit from sims himself. having previously cropped up on mark brooms beard man imprint, avision (real name anthony cardinale) has a knack for turning in gritty grooves that draw on earthy, discoid constructs and thats exactly what we have here with culture. from the eponymous opener throughout, staccato stabs characterise and propel the tracks in different ways whether via rolling, almost-there disco loops, gleefully abrasive call and response rhythms or, in the case of sims edit of jux, nifty vocal sample interplay. true to hardgroove form, culture is a release crafted for the dancefloor and delivers with exacting precision.
