Label boss Tactusheads this EP alongside two collabs with MAKO.
Both artists have been busy with a number of projects, Tactus’ recent EP on Gradient Audioand MAKOs’ release on Hot N Heavyhave both been well received, and between gigging, Sub FM sessions, BBC Radio 1and Rinse FM plays.
This EP is presented by two like-minded producers, coming together to find new ways in which to meld styles, experiment with sounds and snare placement, whilst retaining melody and emphasis on sub frequencies.
It will be the prestigious labels’ 39th release, and acts almost as a follow-up to MAKOs’ ‘The Space Badgers EP’ from late 2010, which also included two collaborations between these two producers.
The Hold Up EP is Profisee‘s first release on ABAGA Records, featuring a synth laden title track produced by Starkey.
Remixes by Tactus, MAKO and The Seup show the track in a variety of styles: a dancefloor banger, a sub laden track with atmospheric chords and a breakbeat vibe with a jungle feel respectively. Plenty of bass!
One more time a lovely pearl from the Edinburgh Boys of AbagaRecords, out today [20th Feb.] on all main distributors.
Denney brings us some atmospheric and dark drum and bass with an old school vibe on his ABAGA Records debut. With powerful sub-basslines and a mixture of warm keys and well placed samples, he achieves a menacing but enjoyable atmosphere.
