Wilkinsons reputation as the National D&B Awards Best Breakthrough Producer is snowballing and gaining momentum with every turn. His latest single comes neatly packaged with a trio of remixes, where Cyantific flies the flag for team d&b.
Afterglows intro builds with a poignant piano piece, with Becky Hills powerful vocals kicking in followed by an unassuming nostalgic jungle beat, all before the initial drop. Now comes the booming bassline beginning, and we hear the full extent of the precision production Wilkinson has become famed for.
This ghostly roller is Noisia's first release on their Vision Recordings imprint since May 2012, and is surely worth the wait as it sees the heavyweights lock horns with another of the scene's colossal collectives.
This is a punchy, techy bit of bass which is instantly recognisable as Noisia.
Dark Manoeuvres are still in the infancy of their life as a label, and at only their fifth release are showing promising signs of pushing some beautiful music. A light and floating flute tune worthy of Zeldas pipe begins the intro and continues throughout, before dropping into an understated drum pattern and a laidback chanting vocal. The entire track is draped in a magical feeling haze, which accentuates its mystifying allure.
Ching from the floor and blasting you full throttle into galactic! this all-out onslaught on your ear drums lures with a spacey intro before dropping full pelt. Drenched in sci-fi sfx and including a good helping of laser ray synths, its ongoing crashing drums keep the energy at the highest level throughout.
Get your guns ready, those little pixelated aliens are about to descend to a dance near you
