Irish D&B / Breakbeat ambassadors Mecca & Code team up for the 20th 12" single release on Subtle Audio in this, the labels 10th year of operation.
"In Cold Blood" has been anticipated for quite awhile with a prototype version finished as many as 5 years ago - it finally sees the light of day with a new mix which adds several extra leagues of depth to an already deep and dark bassline! The anguished dialogue and eerie atmospherics add to the mood, while the tech-y drumfunk style percussives hold everything together, despite the many switches and sections throughout. It was certainly worth the wait !
The flipside "Ice World" sees the pair tackle the under-used "Worm" break for an epic journey through icey terrains. There's a constant ebb and flow to the arrangement here, with surprises around every corner. "White on white world... no sound!"
