    2DB have established themselves as a production outfit determined to take old skool sensibilities and deliver them with razor-edge production techniques. With a string of acclaimed releases including the recent “Ghetto Boy” backed with “Blunderbuss”, they've proven their alchemical mastery of combining emotive melodies with floor-shaking bass aggression.

    So, now for the latest twist in the tale.

    First up is “Bassface”. With a name like that, you might think you know exactly what to expect, but 2DB always have a trick or two up their sleeve. Opening with uplifting synth-work, with just a hint of rough-hewn low-end, the throttle is quickly engaged to push into a half-speed drop. Bass and high-end interplay with melodic fills, but just when you think you've got the measure of the tune you're made to think again. A floaty breakdown breaks down your defences and then builds back up to kick you with a full-speed D&B workout.

    Then we have “Jet Black”. This rolls in, riffs gradually evolving into the soundscape to make the inevitable drop hit with even more impact. The gentle melodic elements contrast with percussive sounds which ride over the bassline and combine into exactly the kind of dancefloor roller that 2DB are known for. This synthesis of tough beats, fat bass and unfolding high-end sequencing show exactly what this production team do best.

    For DJs who want to keep their sets fresh and with a touch of the classic, 2DB's releases are always must-play items. So, inevitably, you'll be hearing a lot more of “Bassface” and “Jet Black” via raves and airwaves worldwide.
