Release Date: 18th December 2020
Tempo Records present SPEED, a new Tempo Records sublabel & project released on a limited collectors handnumbered 180gram coloured picture disc vinyl with original & legendary producers who helped shaping the Drum & Bass scene. After the DJ Trace & DJ Krust releases on Tempo's SPEED series here's the living legendary 'call & response' originator: Source Direct. On this release you'll find new Source Direct material with 'that' distinct trademark SD sound; superbly engineered breakbeats, the relentless sonic, rhythmic, tempo experimentation and haunting 'Blade' film-scape 'dark sounds from beyond' atmospheres accompanied with deep sub-aquatic resonant bass lines. If there's one production technique Source Direct applied it's the 'call & response' technique (the latter is also the track title of SD's contribution to 1998's Stephen Norrington's 'Blade' cult movie which starred Wesley Snipes). Vinyl collectors please check: This release comes as a strictly limited 600 copies handnumbered 180gram Picture Disc Vinyl pressing with a high quality polybag sleeve (including a handnumbered qty sticker on polybag corner) + all tracks mastered by Stuart Hawkes of Metropolis Mastering London. First come, first served, no picture disc repress!
