Bluebirds & Basslines
Eveson - Bluebirds & Powder (Extended Version) [V Recordings]
Eveson feat Jo-S - Time Flows By (Original Mix) [V Recordings]

Once a visual artist for labels like Metalheadz and Exit and now finding himself in the producer’s chair, Eveson has really paid his dues in the drum’n’bass scene. His latest artistic masterpiece is a special EP called Bluebirds & Powder out on Bryan Gee’s V Recordings. The release features two absolutely stunning tunes alongside an original piece of artwork painted by the producer himself (pictured). Both tracks on this EP are intelligent and effortlessly smooth, but more importantly, they are a preview of Eveson’s forthcoming LP The Last Summer Of Love.

Since Fabio first introduced the Glastonbury native to the masses through his BBC Radio 1 show, Eveson has made quite an impression on the liquid dnb community. The two tracks on his latest Bluebirds & Powder EP show a casual versatility from the young producer–one tune clocking in at dnb’s typical 170 bpm threshold, and the other being a little less persistent at 127 bpm. The slower paced tune, entitled Bluebirds & Powder, showcases some serious break edits and drum programming. The vocal sample in this tune is barely intelligible, lending to its clever use as an instrument in the composition. Time Flows By is a lustrous dnb tune full of liquid vibes. The foundation of this track is the irresistible vocal from Jo-S, but the filtered steel drum, swelling pads, and sharp bass stabs push this tune to audible euphoria.
