    A. Optiv & BTK - Crawler (feat. Presence Known)


    Aa. Optiv & BTK - Music Within (feat. Podage, LaMeduza)


    It’s clear to see that the first half of 2011 has been an amazing one for Demand Records. With their first release jumping straight into the Beatport charts at #1, the second seeing Nymfo’s first ever remix and with the ink still drying on the license request for Demand’s third release to appear on the latest compilation CD from UKF, it’s clear that this label has achieved more than most start-ups. So it’s no real surprise that the fourth outing from the Swiss-owned imprint is something special too.

    Here we see Cause 4 Concern member and highly accomplished solo producer, Optiv, team up with Renegade Hardware’s BTK to craft two incredible drum & bass tracks with a completely unique feel. ‘Crawler’ features Presence Known on the beats who helps Optiv & BTK to craft a tribal drum-led slice of D&B with expertly placed sound FX and atmospheric touches. This is like a modern twist on the classic Virus sound, flexing delicate and understated beats with winding mid range synths and deep sub-bass. Impeccable!

    Backing it up is ‘Music Within’ featuring Podage & LaMeduza. Building slowly and gradually with powerful vocals, once again we’re treated to an education in the art of subtle drum & bass. If you’re looking for rinsed out amens and heavily distorted reese basslines then turn your attentions elsewhere, because this track is as beautiful as it is elegant. It won’t be turning any raves upside down, but that’s not really the point of good music, is it?

    DJ support from the likes of Utah Jazz, John B, Adam F, Black Sun Empire, Nicky Blackmarket, DJ SS, DJ Silver, Hazard, Ed Rush, Basher, Spectrasoul, Nymfo, Mark System, State Of Mind, Reso, Cut La Roc etc.

    Another heavy release. Big up all involved! Fair play for carving a way for yourselves with this label. It's a hard thing to do but you guys are doing it in style. Keep up the quality control.

    Well proud of this label, came out of nowhere and delivered 4 quality releases so far. And judging from what I've heard, I think the 5th is set to be my favourite. Keep up the fantastic work guys!
