    The summer solstice might have passed us already but the weather's still in full effect and
    the vibes are still flowing so, without any more ado, inform records are proud to present
    their summer selection vol. 2 EP. Drawing together a host of skilled young producers the
    EP is a showcase of some of the most exciting underground talent from the UK and

    As always, the aim of the game here is to provide the same high quality, soulful, rolling
    liquid beats that Inform has become synonymous with and, like a dedicated postman, the
    EP fully delivers on that promise with some rolling basslines, beautiful musicality and high
    grade drum work.

    The opening gambit "why we make mistakes" is the first outing on Inform for the west
    country's Modu and is literally dripping in vibes. From the beautiful sweeping Rhodes
    piano to the soft, yet punchy percussion to a bassline that's so deep it'll make you want to
    be a better person, this really is a stellar bit of music from Exeter's rising star.

    Track 2 comes courtesy of Brazil's Nicholas Camargo aka nCamargo. Called "Too Good
    To Be True" it's got a real Latin flavour in the vein of other Brazilian producers like S.P.Y. or
    DJ Marky and a cheeky bassline switch backed by some lush, expansive percussion that'll
    get you on your feet in no time.

    Blue Velvet, the third track, is from a new collaboration between Portsmouth legends Mos
    and Centrik. Called Soul:Motion this new project is really one to watch, as amply
    demonstrated here. With Mos' signature razor sharp sampling skills, tight, beautifully
    produced drums and a deep, slightly sorrowful bassline this track really is a thing of great

    The local connection continues with Telex's Shanghai Horizon. He might be from
    Portsmouth but his track effortlessly evokes images of the orient's arching skyscrapers
    and sweeping vistas. Supported by the trusty think break and some wonderfully arranged
    sub bass that swings back and forth between the aisatic pads and samples to create a
    perfect fusion between east and west.

    The penultimate offering comes courtesy of Jam Thieves, also from Brazil. Unlike the other
    latin connection on the EP this is a tight, dutty, minimal roller that really stands out with its
    low, midrange growls and rude, steppy percussion.

    The EPs parting shot comes from Inform Records stalwarts and south coast badmen
    Vector & Macca. Called "Adrift" this track is a liquid roller stripped down to its bare
    elements, with a simple drum pattern lovingly crafted into a pared-down, punchy break,
    some exquisitely subtle sampling and a deep bassline with a vicious, growling edge to it.

    This track'll shake you to your core and'll be ringing in your ears for days afterwards.
    Following in Inform's maxim of high quality liquid drum and bass produced by rising talent
    the Summer Selection vol.2 EP is the perfect companion for those long, blissful summer
