TRACKS: SUB CRATE / STONE RIVER
LABEL: MODULATIONS CAT NUMBER: MODULE008 RELEASE DATE: 22ND AUGUST 2011
Moving up and moving on is the ever on point Modulations imprint, part of the formidable Critical Music empire. This time Kasra hauls in a duo familiar to most, a duo who’ve been a staple part of the D&B world for the best part of the last decade; step forward Bristol’s D*Minds.
‘Sub Crate’ intros delicately with dark pads and a stripped back break that prep us for the badman steppa that’s about to take flight. Drop dread bass is it what it’s all about as D*Minds take us back in time to the early Full Cycle days with heavy kicks, reverse FX and a punching b-line that doesn’t give up. Dangerous without a doubt!
Drawing yet again from their heavy west country influence ‘Stone River’ flows nervously through a windswept cityscape with syncopated breaks, slow-rise bass and percussion fills that keep things moving in an otherwise fairly minimal slice of D*Minds artillery. Great to hear Critical bringing out something a little different from these guys.
