Release Date - 26th April 2019
For the label to finally reach its 20th catalogue number is a seminal moment. To reach it with the original logo designer for Encrypted Audio and all round top gent is an even greater honour.
Mesck has a slew of releases on friends and family labels such as Chestplate & Crucial Recordings but with this release we wanted to create the feeling that no side was an A. Knowing Zach's style he did not let us down.
As we are referring to this release The Double Header..... 'Locust March' testament to the commanding way Mesck uses percussion and synth tones in a controlled fashion to create anticipation in the way they are used. In a track dominated and driven by a raw sub and mid punch combination that Mesck knows all so well. Joined by the equally amazing 'Fugazi'... There is no other way to describe this piece of art than EPIC.

The 9th piece to the ever growing Vinyl puzzle comes from Encrypted Audio's own Trisicloplox (Killian) residing in the US heartland for Bass music Denver / Colorado.
Not the only Denver'ite on the EA roster you will be hearing from I assure you. Killian's love for distortion and forward thinking wave forms takes the listener into an emotive bass and kick driven frenzy across all his tracks. Cafe Blank in a monster with a driving kick pattern and distorted topline to carry off any rave. Estranged leaves you in a field a bass frequencies hard to match. Iaido is seeing a lot of support from the likes of GothTrad and recently even the likes of The Bug have found their ears gravitated towards Trisco.

The Seventh instalment from Encrypted Audio is none other than London based Samba (Sam Bartlett).
Samba delivers finely crafted, raw and edgy music exploring the boundaries of the bass music genre. With Encrypted as his home Sam has crafted his sound into a genre changing format. Samba’s output often delves deep into the fundamentals of stripped-back rhythm, with skittering off-kilter musical elements and bass that rattles the back of your skull.
Samba is a rapidly rising star in the expanding universe of new-talent and one to keep an eye on.
Sadist the lead track has seen plays from Scene favourites such as Mala, Truth, N:Type & Hatcha. The melodic hook and powerful drum work see this track as a key in nearly all sets.
Light Leak is a show case of all things distorted, with a driving top line and sub bass. Supported by Sam’s love of gritty distortion, this track is an introduction to the future.
36’s could of easily demanded a single 12 of its own but with the amount of work coming from Sam it had to fit onto this release. With an energy and flow reminiscent of Jungle/Drum & Bass from the Mid 90’s.
