Funky, fresh and with a lot of jungle attitude to work through, Rowpieces returns to Fokuz with triple of bright summer instant classics to tide us over this rainiest of seasons. Featuring Soul Cube for “Jungle Bitch”, there’s a definite ’90s vibe emanating from sax synths and funky rhythms. Pulsaar joins for “Word Up”, where sexy summertime guitar jangles alongside loose hi-hat shimmers and a ton of good feeling. Finally, “Memorable Time” takes the classic rolling blueprint Rowpieces knows so well and switches it up with edgy breaks and a smattering of inventive sampling. What a beauty.
Phase returns to Fokuz Recordings blessing us with the ”Do Not Look Back EP”. A digital two tracker that blends contemporary liquid drum & bass with the soulful sounds of the old-skool. First up is ”Our Love” featuring silky smooth vocals by the lovely LaMeduza. Crisp beat and intriguing vibes all over, delightfull from start to finnish. We continue with ”Do Not Look Back” that offers insight in Phase’s ability to step away from the paved ways in drum & bass. He does so by exciting chord progressions, rolling drums, surprising edits and bass play. It’s gorgeous, an absolute must-have for every true drum & bass fan
