Bristol-based KSS Black Records are proud to present their second vinyl release:A: Holdtight - Blackstone
Holdtight make a welcome return with a rollicking slab of lo-fidelity sci-fi Drum & Bass. A steely backbone of percussion provides the skeleton to which a gut wrenching sub line and precision cyber-bleeps are built. *Full of atmospherics and stabs Blackstone offers up a master class in layering grooves to capture the crowd. This one won’t stop until it gets you!
AA: *Mute - Suspense
The flip for this fine 12” features the brothers Mute, with a massive debut vinyl release! “Suspense” has got skanker written all over it, reminiscent of the days Grooverider was dropping Adam F's seminal track “Metropolis” on dub. Modern production values are infused with the sweaty funk of 90’s dancefloor tech. Heavily influenced by the sounds of Photek and, *more recently, Break with technical drum programming and a bassline to trouble any bass bin as they look backwards to move forward. You won't miss it when this tune drops... bassface time!
Featuring on Bailey's 1xtra show several times last year this is not a tune to miss out on.
Both tracks have been receiving heavy support from, among others, Bailey, Lomax, Survival & Break.
