Hoping for more word on that Quartz bit any week now, for sometime in August. Should be out before Last Life's LP

Can be heard from 49:30 in the mix below. Big tune

Wow, sounds amazing....
Turns out it was Figure It Out that I... figured out :teeth: and, you're not ready for this epic heaviness. Easily his best EP (and music for me) so far! Around 21st August

Quartz

Into The Mist
Snakes (EP)
Figure It Out
Cluster Bomb

"Elliot Garvey aka Quartz joins Samurai Music with 4 tracks of menacing weight for his debut EP on the label. With previous releases for labels like Metalheadz, DSCI4, and Invisible, Quartz’ powerful mix-downs and his knack for technical tunes that retain the vibe factor has him high on everyone’s radar. Into the Mist was the first tune signed for the Snakes EP, a tune that encapsulates the existing Quartz dark / light style with nods to legacy Drum and Bass perfectly. Snakes and Cluster Bomb are possibly Elliot’s 2 darkest tunes to date, focused, creeping sinistism with hulking constructions. Figure It Out lurks low, still retaining his perfectly focused build strength, but with a subtler approach and a pulsing bounce that burns through in the mix. Already garnering DJ support from the likes of Goldie, Flight, Loxy, Mako, Mantra, Double O and more, the Snakes EP looks set to be a new pinnacle for Quartz productions."


Also pretty sure I've heard a Lamia remix / vip in Presha, Torn and / or Antagonist's recent mix, along with a vip or remix of Walking K (?). Will have to find time stamps for them, but they would have been sweet on an actual Gravity remix EP like HW's first LP remix EP. Still loving the Gravity remix plate they put out though

Epic

Last Life - Recon LP (around 18th September) 3 x 12"
  • A1. The Minimal
  • A2. P34
  • B1. Cassius
  • B2. Recon
  • C1. Escape
  • C2. RVNS
  • D1. Temple
  • D2. Omega
  • E1. Dipylon (with Torn)
  • E2. Down The Mine
  • F1. Tunnel
  • F2. Throes (with Homemade Weapons)

"With his first releases as Last Life for Loxy’s Cylon Recordings leaving a mark that propelled him into must-check zone with followers of stripped back, progressive DnB, Mauro Picciau has continued to advance the Last Life sound into a distinctive force.

His recent tracks for Samurai Music compilations - Decade, Samurai Hannya, and Outliers, plus his own LL Series honed the deadly step forward carved out with his debut Samurai Music EP - Nootka in 2017.

As the global pandemic hit, Mauro was secluded in his studio in Cagliari, Italy where he worked on the finishing touches for Recon, his debut LP.

The Last Life reputation is built on robust mixdowns, weighty kicks and incisive breakbeat layers. Cassius, Tunnel, Down The Mine and Omega are capsule Last Life tracks and have already found favour with selectors testing out Recon.

Tracks like RVNS, The Minimal and Escape introduce a new angle for the Last Life sound, less dance-floor designed but twisting themselves into essential set additions through sheer power.

Collaborations with Torn and Homemade Weapons add further fresh perspectives, aptly mixing their individual construction talents into a focused attack.

Recon is a confident, assured debut LP from one of Samurai Music’s most important artists, a producer who’s sound is an integral part of our labels sonic identity and will no doubt continue to be in years to come. Salute Last Life!"
