CIA 20 Album Sampler
(£7.99 Incl VAT)
Released 3rd June 2016
This year sees Total Science celebrate the 20th birthday of their CIA Records label. Known as a breeding ground for new and exciting producers, as well as a platform for bonafide legends of the scene to release their tracks, two decades down the line, the label continues to consistently release great music. To help celebrate this impressive landmark, Total Science will release the ʻCIA 20ʼ LP this summer.
A sampler drops first on 3rd June announcing the project in style. Three killer tracks come on vinyl, with a digital bonus wrapping up the package.
Q Projectʼs ʻChampion Soundʼ was one of the most important and iconic tracks of the early 90ʼs rave scene. The trackʼs hook is instantly recognisable and itʼs bassline consistently takes dancefloors apart. For the sampler itʼs given a 2016 update by one of Drum & Bassʼ most technically gifted and astute producers, DLR. Heʼs managed to maintain the essence of the track, while giving it a serious update. Since itʼs first airing on BBC Radio 1, the remix has taken the scene by storm and will be heard reverberating in clubs worldwide for months to come.
Calibre graces the label once again, with another trademark slice of musical goodness. ʻUnder Barsʼ is classic Calibre – rolling, harmonic, understated gracefulness, itʼs a track that shows exactly why he is one of the most respected producers in contemporary Drum & Bass.
Label owners Total Science also step up to the plate with ʻRespect Dueʼ. It showcases the trademark style the guys are so well known for, classic but tightly produced breaks, ravey bleeps and vocals, and yet another club and sound system punishing bassline.
