This week’s episode of The Rinse brings massive new drum & bass from the likes of Calyx & TeeBee, DJ Marky, and Mefjus, to name a few. We also have a few previews from some very large projects on the near horizon and a selection from Eastcolors’ incredible new album. Let’s get to it post-haste!
DJ Marky – Frenesi (Original Mix) [Innerground]
As famed Brazilian D&B icon DJ Marky readies his debut album My Heroes for June 15, fans can get an early preview into the album with his new EP, Silly/Frenesi. Both are soulful numbers with a hint of jazz, and the track featured here called Frenesi is brimming with summer vibes. For those wanting to dig deeper into the forthcoming album, make sure to check out DJ Marky’s video documentary on all things related to My Heroes.
Calyx & Teebee – Long Gone (Original Mix) [RAM]
RAM veterans Calyx & TeeBee prove to be one of the most consistently innovative production outfits in D&B with every release, and their forthcoming EP Long Gone/Sawn Off is no exception. Long Gone is particularly beautiful, bringing together a plucked guitar and brisk rhythm over vocals from Calyx himself. Make sure to also check out the track’s official video.
Eastcolors – Using Time (Original Mix) [Demand]
Russian newcomer Eastcolors took a huge step in his music career this week with the release of his new album Lighthouse. Getting support from notable D&B outlets like BBC Radio and UKF, the album traverses various sub-genres of D&B, satisfying all manner of D&B connoisseurs. While this album is filled with gems, it’s Using Time’s broken rhythm and creative arrangement that make for one of the album’s many high points.
Maztek & Aeph – Hypnotize (Original Mix) [Lifted Music]
Italian drum & bass producers Maztek and Aeph came together for this neuro-pummeling experience called Hypnotize. Hypnotize is part of a five-track EP called Destroy Rave from Lifted Music, and features producers such as L 33, Uman, Zombie Cats, and Memtrix, with most of the EP bordering on a furiously aggressive vibe. Hypnotize leads the way with its anxiety-inducing sound design and gritty lead synth stabs.
Mefjus & Enei – Diffusion (Original Mix) [AEI]
Mefjus and Enei are two names that need no introduction in any circle involving D&B. The two forces have united for the forthcoming Let It Roll Vol. 1 compilation celebrating the Let It Roll Festival that takes place in the Czech Republic every year. Out on June 8 from bass media giant AEI, Let It Roll Vol. 1 features 40 tracks and 12 exclusives with Diffusion being one of the many mental experiences available on this mandatory album. Diffusion is hard-edged neurofunk–typical fare for these two heavyweight producers.
