Having made his debut with the track ‘Sky Stepping’ on ‘Of Paradise Vol. 2’, Will Lister now cements his status as a full time family member with the release of his ‘Glow EP’, a masterful four-tracker that firmly establishes this young talent as one to watch in 2020 and beyond.
Kicking off the A-side is ‘Glow’ a cinematic and expansive slice of deftly produced electronica. Pattering synths and glistening melodies work in unison with full-bodied drums and intricate percussion to create an atmospheric and intoxicating journey through sound and rhythm. Following this is ‘Pleasant Air’ a deconstructed and slightly frantic house number. Playful melodies, stumbling drums and urgent percussion all work together to build a wonderfully colourful yet sinister landscape of sound.
The flipside launches with ‘Patience’, a spiralling and constantly building breaks affair that pushes the release into darker territory and showcases a rich new layer to Lister’s dynamic and expansive sound. Closing out the EP is ‘Forth’ an expertly crafted piece of electronic music that sits somewhere between deconstructed house, techno and breaks. Jagged drums, razor sharp percussion and sentient synths cut through the smoke like the distress signal from a long lost starship, as Lister pushes things into uncharted territory and brings the lights down on a breathtaking collection of future music.

The lead track on the EP "Fallen", is a multi-genere, one of a kind of track. It's wide spread influences and unique sound make it hard to place in a box. Its pitched vocals along with heavy rises and reverberated claps make for high tension and emotive music. A truly exciting piece of music the entire way through. 'Wasp' this slow intense build makes way for heavy distorted disjointed emotional drops. 'Snow' is an ode to British beat making. Hip-hop/grime/garage influences put this a very hard to categorise piece of music. Again, Emotional melodies and harmonies along side solid knocking drums make this a remarkable piece of modern electronic music.

After messing about with vinyl, ableton and music in general for more than 10 years, Dyzz from The Illuminated decided it's time to take 'matters' into his own hands:
Introducting Degenerate Music - a label focussed on bass heavy, chest rattlin', floor shaking & dub influenced soundsystem music - starting off 2020 with his inaugural and sharply curated 040 - 010 EP
On That Side we can find 2 sought after VIP's from the duo Dyzz & Rebus, better known as The Illuminated. Where the originals Eindhoviah & Scavenger have been released on Underslung Audio (digi only) and New Moon Recordings, the deeper / techy sister label from the Moonshine camp. The VIP's go way beyond the originals, fulfulling the gunfinger reload requests from the last few years.
On This Side we find another Scavenger version, this one fully locked on the triplets and loaded with some vocal samples from a galaxy far far away. Last but not least, Eindhoviah gets the young gun Hebbe treatment, this one's for the clubheads.
Now all the VIPS, versions & remix get the treatment they deserve, freshly cut on a 180grams 12" heavyweight plate.

Operating with unwavering musical dedication, St. Louis' Dub Sector imprint readies their next pressure volley with none other than Rumble on the controls. Also known through his prolific mastering efforts for various quality labels and artists, the London-based producer and engineer has been wreaking considerable havoc with his original productions - yielding support from the likes of Egoless in the process. A signature style that's gravitating towards industrial and experimental inclinations, authentically being paired with original sound system music flavours from his past single on the Dub Sector Compilation. Now really stepping into the limelight with a whopping amount of five heavyweight cuts (supported by The Widdler, Hebbe and Youngsta), it is safe to advise for you to get ready for Rumble’s first major breakthrough.
Exhuming haunting foley samples in 'Unorthodox' - a deserted and dusty ambience unravels. Led by historical speech fragments, it promptly unleashes a proper swagger attitude and meticulous groove in the process - the low-frequency barrage pulverising any lingering doubts of Rumble's technical prowess. Descending into subterranean depths, 'Water Martian' propels its off-kilter sound design and experimental affinity in style - fuelling any dimly lit dance floor with a proper sound system - serious business! Reverberating echos fail to indicate the impending doom as 'Scanner' commences plotting a dystopian future. No headroom is left untouched as bespoke Dub influences merge with its modern sonic attire. Electrified synth hits revel in the anticipatory climate of 'Provoked' - making way for a lethal bassline to be discharged with tremendous force and unbridled energy. Furiously advancing its sonic agenda, taking no prisoners in its area of effect. As inaugural destruction protocols activate, the ensuing Armageddon is sure to lay waste to any keen dance-floor. Taking us onto one last ride into an ethereal territory, 'Illusion' sets the pace amid granular foley FX, dense vinyl crackles and prophetic anticipation. Emerging from reverberation with unruly pressure, the doomsday groove in full swing. Stripped down to its bare parts, wreaking havoc in a distorted wasteland - switching into overdrive for its monumental second coming.

Om Unit kicks off 2020 with ‘Submerged’, a six-track EP comprised of varied uptempo grooves, which in his own way defy categorisation once again.
The EP draws influence from various aspects of the techno landscape as much as borrowing from tropes of previous work including his trademark use of space, rhythmic tension and sub-heavy hypnotic bass melodies.
A record that showcases further diversity and sonic innovation within the realm of what has been coined ‘160’, a loose term to describe a movement which he himself has helped to pioneer since the early 2010’s.

Deep Heads are proud to present ‘Hope & Light’ - The Remixes by Zeb Samuels. Pressed on beautiful, clear 12inch Vinyl with full colour sleeve and with remixes from some amazing artists from around the globe.
On the A1 cut is none other than Om Unit, who flips the original of the track ‘Hold on’. Mr Unit takes the original Piano hook and puts some serious weight behind the drums and baselines to give this remix a classy drum & bass twist. The remix contains a very distinct Om Unit flavour and is a collaboration of the highest order.
For the A2 cut is a Deep Heads favourite, Nottingham due Congi. Congi have stripped back the vocals for their remix and added their signature sound. The beat work is remarkable and all round production is impressive. A fantastic display of what these 2 talented producers are all about.
Then on the flip side and for the B1 is the one and only Ash Walker, with his interpretation on the track ‘Stars Glow’. Ash pitches down the original vocal and takes this remix somewhere far away from this planet. It’s gritty, twisted and bursting at the seems with low frequencies.
The beats and hard and punchy and is certainly one for the sound system crew. Finally for the B2 side is LA based producer Feverkin. We’ve had our ear on this talented man for a while, so is a honour to have him giving us some of his Feverkin flavour. His remix of ‘Night Wave’ is exactly what we were expecting from him and does not disappoint. He adds some signature 2step beats and sounds that can only be described as Feverkin, but keeps some of the original energy and mainly vocals for this incredible remix.
