Silicone Soul

1
Since first appearing on Scotland’s seminal Soma label in 1998, DJ-production duo Craig Morrison and Graeme Reedie, aka Silicone Soul, have occupied a special place in the over-crowded field of electronic dance music through the depth and quality of their recordings, plus an innate understanding of music‘s grand heritage and its constant development. Having released four critically acclaimed albums, holding residencies at some of Europe’s most celebrated clubs, scooping numerous DJ Mag award nominations and even refusing to appear on Top Of The Pops after storming the UK charts with ‘Right On’. Silicone Soul lead the way celebrating ten years of their Darkroom Dubs label while winning dance floors across the world.

Darkroom Dubs #1: No names, just numbers. One urgent, jacking slab of dark freaky funk. One shimmering, hypnotic slice of cosmic, dubby 5am magic: two untitled tracks that made history for the Glaswegian duo. Available for the first time digitally and remastered from DAT with warmth and respect, these are the cuts Silicone Soul chose to launch their Darkroom Dubs label way back in 2003.

DRD001A and DRD001AA would set the label's tone and parameters; the former was a Winter Music Conference anthem, the latter mutated into 'Language Of The Soul' on their self-titled fourth album. Together they paved the way for 18 years of authentic pulsating, hypnotic house music by a vast array of worldwide artists from Dino Lenny to Skinnerbox and Am$trad Billionaire to Justin Robertson's Deadstock 33s.

Strictly vinyl for its first few years, the label was the duos outlet for forward-thinking, no-frills, underground electronic music as they continued to tour the world and release on the iconic Soma Recordings. Designed and delivered like an under-the-counter style white-label, this same ethos that inspired Darkroom Dubs has remained consistent as we have evolved and grown with the times.

The next evolution is 'Darkroom Dubs Vol. V - Compiled & Mixed by Silicone Soul', dropping on the 25th of June, featuring several exclusives and a creative collaboration with Glasgow-based independent streetwear brand, 1 of 100. Before that, however, here are two stone-cold classic slabs of Silicone Soul history to get us in the groove.

2021: A new hope. From the lockdown ashes, something much stronger will rise. A newfound appreciation of everything we’ve been building for all these years. Unbounded energy and a sense of positivity. And Amount’s vibrant new EP ‘Istanbul’ is the soundtrack.

Returning to the label after almost a decade, Amount (AKA Nayan Soukie) was last seen on Darkroom Dubs back in 2012 as one half of Soukie & Windish. After years of releasing on killer labels like Voltaire, Feines Tier and his URSL imprint, he’s back with four electric cuts that run the full Darkroom Dubs spectrum and include some of the most emotion-heavy productions of his career.

‘Kreuzberg’ is an incredible slice of euphoria. Feel-good and hopeful without any unnecessary sense of cheese or pomp, Amount captures the essence of uplift that can only come after a long period of darkness and graft. Laced with elements of Italo and synthpop, it’s a poignant track for these unique times, and it sets the scene for the rest of the EP.

The title track, ‘Istanbul’ maintains that unhurried sense of elevation. Progressive in soul but funky in spirit, those crisp sweeping pads and affirmative chords whip you up into a positive state and set you up for ‘Uckermark’. Once again, tapping into some classic electronica motifs and techniques, there’s an unabashed sense of theatre and warmth as huge chords shine over a prime riffy bassline.

Last but by no means least, ‘Neukölln’ amplifies the light and positivity with a much deeper, darker, underground sound. Because once we’ve acclimatised to that newfound appreciation and unbounded energy, this is the sound of where we want to be. Sleeves rolled up, heads down and lost in great clouds of deep, bass-laden hypnotic house music, best played in the lost hours in intimate company, in rooms with low ceilings. It’s the spirit of Darkroom Dubs, it’s the spirit of house music playing all night, it’s where we can’t wait to be once again.

Welcome to 2021: Darkroom Dubs crack open their 18th year with a warm welcome to two new members to the roster… Santiago producer Alejandro Paz and Berlin duo Local Suicide with ‘Directions’, complete with remixes from Undo, DJs Pareja and Velax.

Cold, cutting edge and boasting a full-spectrum of sounds, there’s a slight irony to dropping a release called ‘Directions’ when none of us know where the hell we’re going right now. But we sure as hell know what we’re listening to. And boy do we love it.

As proved on previous collaborations between the two acts on labels such as Nein and Aeon, Alejandro’s weighty production dynamics and Local Suicide’s purring noir soul complement each other to the very last transient. Part new romantic, part techno, all dancefloor; each track is a story just as much as it’s a song. ‘Directions’ captures the frustrations and intensity of isolated life in the 21st century and ‘Splish Splash’ takes a provocative, playful stance with its acid house bass plunges and cosmic squiggles.

It’s loaded with a full range of heavyweight remixes from a rollcall of exceptional talent: Undo gets a slinky bass guitar in the mix, DJs Pareja get wonky and bumpy while Velax fuses more grit and intensity in his special Isolated remix. The world may continue to spin backwards but we know where we’re heading… and it’s artists like Alejandro Paz and Local Suicide who are helping us get there. Take care of each other.

‘Right On, Right On’ and on and on and on… The duo’s iconic Cutis Mayfield sampling single came in many shapes and sizes around the turn of the century. Beginning as ‘Right On 4 Tha Darkness’ in 1999, it then became ‘Right On, Right On’ in 2000 with that legendary hypnotic bongo loop that brought the soaring strings and warm jacking groove together so exceptionally well that another version popped up a year later; with added vocals from Louise Clare Marshall, ‘Right On!’ smashed the UK mainstream, hitting number 15 in the official charts… And led to the Glasgow duo famously declining an offer to go on Top Of The Pops. Two decades later and they still don’t regret that decision.

“We’ve had a lot of remix and licensing requests recently for 'Right On, Right On’ with even a dodgy progressive house cover version appearing back in January. Soma’s release schedule was sadly full, so we thought, f**k it, let’s do a re-release on our own Darkroom Dubs label, and as it’s been 20 years since the first release, we thought it would be perfect timing for an anniversary edition too. Conor Dalton, from Glowcast Mastering in Berlin, was kind enough to remaster the original direct from DAT and to complete the package, we’ve also included a new dynamite remix from Fango, with Matthias Tanzmann revisiting his much-loved remix for a 2020 version.”

Warmer than it’s ever sounded before, the new Glowcast remaster comes complete with remixes from Matthias Tanzmann and Fango. Originally released in 2012 as part of Soma’s own 20 year anniversary, Tanzmann squeezes every ounce of soul possible from the percussion elements while Italian Fango gives ‘Right On Right On’ a right old shoeing with a massive lolloping disco bassline, marching pianos and an injection of funk positivity 2020 has sorely missed so far.

20 years deep, still taking us through the darkness, still focused on a bright future. We need music like this now more than ever. Stay tuned for more Darkroom Dubs dispatches very soon.

Glaswegian space-funkateer Am$trad Billionaire returns after years of traversing through retro-cyber galaxies, making more aggressive acquisitions in one day than Lord Sugar does in a year. His last trip was 'Galaxy 500’. It took us all to far-off places and was a bit of a big deal… Especially the lead track ‘The Plan’.

Picked up by Solomun years after its 2013 release, ‘The Plan’ was licenced for his GTA After Hours mix and gave the track a whole new lease of life. But, like all good entrepreneurs, Am$trad Billionaire (boardroom name: Jamie Miller in case you ever do business with him) is back with another investment opportunity: ‘Outer Limits’.

A project in four parts that spirals deep into his cosmic sonic universe. Once again, the man with the plan delivers and returns are guaranteed. His salubrious space funk will seal the deal with any dancefloor as each part of the EP charms us around a different corner of his sprawling, synth-heavy style.

‘Part I’ warms up the proposal with a touch of Italo diplomacy, unhurried, disarming. ‘Part II’ raises the urgency. He’s sucked you into his pitch with the dreamy synths and he’s backing it with those driving breakbeats. ‘Part III’ gives you space to digest his offer. Slower, funkier with looser drums and bubbly electro boogie edge that gets freakier the deeper into the negotiation we get before. Then finally, ‘Part IV’ builds slowly with pops and struts before a set of triumphant strings sweep in and seal the deal. Pure business; all the way those opening 909s right through to the final synth flurry.

Another day, another dollar. A billion thumbs up.

Glaswegian space-funkateer Am$trad Billionaire returns after years of traversing through retro-cyber galaxies, making more aggressive acquisitions in one day than Lord Sugar does in a year. His last trip was 'Galaxy 500’. It took us all to far-off places and was a bit of a big deal… Especially the lead track ‘The Plan’.

Picked up by Solomun years after its 2013 release, ‘The Plan’ was licenced for his GTA After Hours mix and gave the track a whole new lease of life. But, like all good entrepreneurs, Am$trad Billionaire (boardroom name: Jamie Miller in case you ever do business with him) is back with another investment opportunity: ‘Outer Limits’.

A project in four parts that spirals deep into his cosmic sonic universe. Once again, the man with the plan delivers and returns are guaranteed. His salubrious space funk will seal the deal with any dancefloor as each part of the EP charms us around a different corner of his sprawling, synth-heavy style.

‘Part I’ warms up the proposal with a touch of Italo diplomacy, unhurried, disarming. ‘Part II’ raises the urgency. He’s sucked you into his pitch with the dreamy synths and he’s backing it with those driving breakbeats. ‘Part III’ gives you space to digest his offer. Slower, funkier with looser drums and bubbly electro boogie edge that gets freakier the deeper into the negotiation we get before. Then finally, ‘Part IV’ builds slowly with pops and struts before a set of triumphant strings sweep in and seal the deal. Pure business; all the way those opening 909s right through to the final synth flurry.

Another day, another dollar. A billion thumbs up.

They’re back! Silicone Soul march from the shadows with some long-awaited new material. Come on, we’ll take you there…

Of course they never actually went away: their label Darkroom Dubs has remained the tour de force it’s always been since it launched in 2003. They remain just as in-demand as touring DJs, too. But life doing what it does best (getting in the way of doing cool stuff) has prevented Silicone Soul from what they do best (make music). Until now…

‘Fahrenheit 625’ raises the heat on Darkroom Dubs seminal Traxx series. Tailored for low-lights and lower-ceilings, it’s their darkest sonic laboratory and the perfect home for this comeback thumper. Stripped-back, heads-down grit noir with a juicy, thumping bassline, a vocal from one of the greatest house conjurors of all time and some devilishly trippy elements, ‘Fahrenheit 625’ is heavy and gets straight to the point. An unabashed statement of comeback intent from Craig and Graeme… It leaves us wanting more.

Remix-wise Mexican techno maestro Theus Mago links up with continental cousin ld!r for a subversive excursion, where a whole new top-line spirals in and out of focus with raffishly funky results. Finally, Argentina’s Shall Ocin dusts off some majestic organ chords, whips up a snake-like synth-line straight out of 1999 but bites like it’s 2029. It sounds like the future, but the speed we’re all hurtling at we’ll be there before we know it. March, come on, we’ll take you there…

Dark times call for dark music… ‘Nero’ sees the one and only Stelios Vassiloudis make his debut on Darkroom Dubs. After a decade of gracing the likes of Bedrock, Poker Flat, Balance and many more bastions of deepness, his arrival on Silicone Soul’s imprint is a long time coming. And as the EP suggests, it’s a deep, dark and beguiling affair.

Three tracks noxiously laced in dub aesthetics, sculpted with more space than a planetarium and heavy like dark matter, we kick off with ‘Doxie #3’. Stately, cavernous and driven by a pounding kick, the magic is in the synth ebb and flows and snake-like percussion that weaves in and out of the hypnotic mix. It’s followed by ‘Error’. Don’t be fooled by its misleading title; with more of a jacking drum arrangement and more urgency in those insistent dubby synths, there’s nothing erroneous about this chasmic, cosmic composition whatsoever.

Finally, Stelios closes the deal with ‘1MDB’. Taking us deeper into techno territories, here the big oceanic dubby synths that characterise the whole EP weave and bob around a subtle acid bounce and rolling bassline while the drums rise in tension and momentum in a way that the Greek producer has made his own over the years.

Tense, focused and stripped right back to the essential elements. These are the tunes this label was made for. Dark times call for Darkroom Dubs…

Mariano Mellino returns to his old amigos at Darkroom Dubs to immerse us in the dark art of murkery. Deep weaves of mystifying mist laced around the beats, a powerful sense of unknown; creepy, spine-tingling, tightly coiled in latent tension… ‘Murk’ more than lives up to its name and reminds us why Mariano keeps returning to Silicone Soul’s label.

It’s backed by the equally tense and evocative ‘Mubarak’. Another deep, driving narrative from the Argentinian producer, here the hypnosis can be found locked into the bulbous palpitating bass/kick arrangement while a chorus of ghostly pads harmonise in the background, just out of focus. Trippy, eerie, unhurried; this captures the essence of what Darkroom Dubs is truly all about.

There’s plenty more where this came from, too… Mariano’s single will be followed very soon by new material from the label bosses Silicone Soul themselves and new face to the label – but not to our sets – Kincaid. Stay tuned.

A new year, a spanking new Darkroom Dub. Something to ease ourselves into 2019 softly, something to arrest the imagination and take us away from the cold world outside…

Cue two beautiful compositions from Bernhard Siefert, the man we all know and love best as Nhar. Building on his previous Darkroom Dubs excursion in 2017 - not to mention multiple expeditions on the likes of My Favorite Robot, Tenampa, Correspondant, Mobilee, Modelisme and many more respected labels - both Psallite and Sibylle spark with that magic, mystic quality he's made his own. Unhurried, subtly layered, forever evolving and ultimately transcending us from the dancefloor to the stars, they're the perfect antidote to both the brutally cold weather most of us are experiencing right now and the perplexing politics.

It's been decades since we needed escapism at this level. Soul soothing, imagination boosting, skin rippling tech noir laced with emotion... From the subtle baroque breezes and gentle raindrops-on-window melodic details of Psallite to the catlike bassline that stalks between the shadows of the pads and eerie arpeggios of Sibylle, this doesn't so much as ease you into the rest of the new year softly but, for a combined 15 minutes, takes you to a new year on a new planet. Nhar always knows how to unify all our senses like this. We suspect we'll be seeing him here again. Stay tuned in the meantime, we're only just getting started and have a lot planned for 2019...

Every tale has a twist… Silicone Soul take an unexpected left turn to sign the year out with their second label collection of 2018: 'Tales From Underground'.

Ten tracks deep, it’s a new collection of recent Darkroom Dubs heat. Wrapping up another considered year of timeless late night house music, the duo look back over every Darkroom chapter this year and present it as a whole story. Right now, we kick off with this three track sampler and it starts with something brand new…

Cannibal Ink and Rigopolar make their Darkroom debut with ‘A Thousand Years Before’, a track that sucks you straight into a hazy cosmic world with yearning faraway vocals and sudden textural flips. Pure alluring electronica; it nods to the days of Yoshitoshi and Morel, but pitched right down and beefed right up as today’s standards require.

It’s joined by more outstanding pieces of work: Eduardo De La Calle’s ‘Breatharian’ remains a major dancefloor incendiary device. A layered excursion into the deepest footnotes of musical hypnosis, it precision balances measured steadiness with the trippiest tendrils...

An intergalactic sensation that remains high right through to the final echo as the label bosses sign the sampler out with their immense remix of Dino Lenny’s ‘Chained To A Ladder’. Gloopy, foggy, relentless; it’s a nine-minute mystic abyss that snapshots everything the label stands for… Deep, mesmerising, unhurried and restrained house music designed strictly for the darkest of rooms at the latest of hours. Welcome to the underground.

Silicone Soul welcome the return of old friend Justin Robertson as he brings his much-loved Deadstock 33s project back to Darkroom Dubs. Last spotted on the label only a matter of weeks ago with ‘Infinite Interchange’ on the ‘Darkroom Dubs Presents Summer Love’ collection, here he builds on the momentum with two more singular missions deep into the timeless analogue abyss. What’s more, they come covered with a print of one of Justin’s very own hand-drawn pieces.

‘Dr. Spectro On The Frontier’ marks the start of this new Deadstock trip. Celebrating the lesser spotted DC super-villain who could control people’s emotions with a brazen line or two of sinewy acid; what starts off dark and gnarly gradually unfolds into a much more emotional narrative. Watch out for the harmonic riff that rekindles feels of raving fields and a salvo of chords towards the climax that genuinely will control your emotions.

‘The Music Is Madness (To Those Who Cannot Hear It)’, meanwhile, is more than just a poetic title. Already a summer anthem at A Love From Outer Space, it's a roomy, cosmic affair that’s laced with layers of trippy textures and chugs at a cool 120. It’s one of Justin’s classic signature smouldering sessions; what ostensibly seems forlorn and introspective is actually coded with deep hope and positivity. You’d be mad not to hear it.

You’d be mad not to stay tuned too… For the first time in Darkroom Dubs history, this release and all this year’s vinyl dispatches will be released digitally as part of an end of year compilation, ‘Tales From Underground Vol. 1’ and will also feature an exclusive Silicone Soul remix of Rigopolar & Cannibal Ink’s 'Thousand Years Before'. And to round the year off? The long-awaited new single from Silicone Soul themselves.

Silicone Soul welcome the return of old friend Justin Robertson as he brings his much-loved Deadstock 33s project back to Darkroom Dubs. Last spotted on the label only a matter of weeks ago with ‘Infinite Interchange’ on the ‘Darkroom Dubs Presents Summer Love’ collection, here he builds on the momentum with two more singular missions deep into the timeless analogue abyss. What’s more, they come covered with a print of one of Justin’s very own hand-drawn pieces.

‘Dr. Spectro On The Frontier’ marks the start of this new Deadstock trip. Celebrating the lesser spotted DC super-villain who could control people’s emotions with a brazen line or two of sinewy acid; what starts off dark and gnarly gradually unfolds into a much more emotional narrative. Watch out for the harmonic riff that rekindles feels of raving fields and a salvo of chords towards the climax that genuinely will control your emotions.

‘The Music Is Madness (To Those Who Cannot Hear It)’, meanwhile, is more than just a poetic title. Already a summer anthem at A Love From Outer Space, it's a roomy, cosmic affair that’s laced with layers of trippy textures and chugs at a cool 120. It’s one of Justin’s classic signature smouldering sessions; what ostensibly seems forlorn and introspective is actually coded with deep hope and positivity. You’d be mad not to hear it.

This one goes out to all you soggy DJs out there. The selectors and entertainers whose slot is not in sync with mother nature’s winning hand. You look out over a sea of anoraks and subdued faces and wonder if the sun will ever shine again. You look at your beer and wish it was a warm cup of tea. You look down at your coat and realise you’ll never pack your winter wardrobe away for the summer…

These instances are hard, if not impossible, to imagine as this year’s unlikely heatwave continues to dazzle and frazzle us. But we all know that those rainy day moments do exist. We’ve all played them in the past. We’ve all got many more in the future. And now Darkroom Dubs have the perfect soundtrack for them: Skinnerbox – ‘Music For Sad & Rainy Open Airs’.

Two tracks tailored for the greyest of outdoor shows. Moody, pensive and vitally atmospheric; both ‘Cold Neck’ and ‘Wet Shoes’ counter and complement any damp DJ set consummately. The former is a lavish, eight-minute saga that ripples with analog weight and shines with sudden cosmic blasts. The sinewy latter extends the trip closer to nine minutes with a wriggling weave of acid and bass before smacking us hard with vibrant solar sensation in the epic breakdown. No matter how treacherous the conditions you play this in are, the sun will always rise.

Cold neck, wet shoes, warm heart: The weather might be an unpredictable beast, but these tracks most certainly guarantee temperate reactions. And let’s face it; this is Skinnerbox and Darkroom Dubs… These guarantee joy regardless of what weather mother nature throws at us. Enjoy!

Rewind to 88/89: the heady haze of two culture-accelerating summers commence and music, youth culture, fashion, and society are changed forever. All change: A paradigm shifting gift from our original dancefloor forefathers, a new fire of unity, musical togetherness and sense of creative adventure was lit. And it’s our duty – whether you’re old enough to have been there at the start, or joined the movement at any point in between – to keep those fires burning.

Fast forward to 2018: Silicone Soul’s Darkroom Dubs take the torch and tend the flames in their own unique way with this timely seasonal dispatch. Building on the foundations dug 30 years ago, ‘Darkroom Dubs Presents Summer Love’ eschews any sense of nostalgia in favour of a celebration of the original principals that have shaken club walls ever since. And it does so with a spirited sense of unity as five firm label friends return bearing timeless gems that are fine-tuned to complement any summer selection scenario from 88 to 2048...

Long-time label brothers-in-arms, Of Norway light the embers with the poetically titled, ‘She Never Lost A Passenger’. Unrelenting kicks, slinky filtered bass, a powerful one-word vocal, subtle rolling breaks and a sudden drop into a classic M1 hook all wrapped up in a Balearic bundle of bliss; it’s the perfect start to a unifying storm.

Freska follows with another farsighted slice of freedom. ‘R.U.N’ continues the rich vein of Darkroom Dubs form he’s been building for over six years with a shimmering piano riff, hip-slinking conga hypnosis and all manner of trippy textures. Meanwhile, more psychedelic wonders can be found in ‘Infinite Interchange’, courtesy of seasoned summer lover Justin Robertson. Denting the Deadstock 33s dials for an ageless 808-melting acid house workout, it’s a sweet taste of what’s to come as the label prepares for his forthcoming vinyl release, ‘Music Is Madness (To Those Who Cannot Hear It)’ due at the end of August.

Skinnerbox are also on tease duty as they set us up for their own forthcoming Darkroom Dubs release, ‘Music For The Sad & Rainy Open Air’ that’s due in late July. Embodying the Balearic spirit with birdsong and Kenyan chorus, ‘Nyeusi’ squeezes their soul machines with class, subversion and a spirit that would sit just as well in a field off the M25 30 years ago or Ushuaïa today.

Finally, we’re whisked away in a fog of Argentinian cosmicity as venerable Buenos Aires selector Mariano Mellino allures us into a deep, extensive progressive trip. Introversion levels set to stun, ‘A Little Cloud Walker’ reminds us of the fine art of restraint, patience and guaranteed higher levels.

Authentic not nostalgic; ‘Darkroom Dubs Presents Summer Love’ celebrates our shared dancefloor inheritance. A bottomless melting pot, a sense of adventure, a love for the unknown and, most importantly, a feeling that everyone around you understands that too. Feel rooted, move forward together... We need to keep these fires burning.

Suns out, guns out: Darkroom Dubs ease into 2018 slowly with a new addition to their limited vinyl series courtesy of Madrid analogue scientist Eduardo De La Calle.

Last spotted on Planet E and boasting a 15 year back-cat on the likes of Cadenza, Biologic, Just This, Hivern Discs and Mule Muziq, Eduardo is a man you’re already well acquainted with. And you’re going to want to get even closer once you’ve digested these four straight-to-business stripped-back traxx. Each cut designed for deep mix tailoring that you can really bend minds with.

‘It’s Me… The Apple Knocker’ ignites the fire with a flash as we’re hurled into a hypnotic frenzy from the first loop. A whirlwind comprised of so few parts yet causing a riot in your senses, this stutters and slurs with a precision sense of unease. The troubled ebb and flow of ‘Opsimath’ follow suit with a twinkling feeling of unknown. An extensive groove weighing in at nearly nine minutes, its unhurried nature alludes to its title; the longer you leave it sizzle, the more enriching it gets.

Flip for ‘Breatharian’. The deepest, most disarming cut of the collection laced with yearning strings and poignant chords, it’s a solar-inspired sunset piece that gradually morphs into something much darker and serious as the track progresses. Finally we conclude with ‘Cybersquatting’, a timeless mildly dubbed-out darkroom groove that flows with liquid insistency. Subtly mutating and rotating, forever pumping, it’s a true calm before the storm piece, tailored for those moments when you need a little suspense and space in your set.

Four crystal jams. Endless variations. Infinite mixes: Darkroom Dubs have delivered once again. And there’s more en route… Watch out for a new Deadstock 33s release and a new compilation ‘Darkroom Dubs Presents Summer Love’. Both due before the summer is out. Don’t put those guns away anytime soon…

‘It’s Me… The Apple Knocker’ ignites the fire with a flash as we’re hurled into a hypnotic frenzy from the first loop. A whirlwind comprised of so few parts yet causing a riot in your senses, this stutters and slurs with a precision sense of unease. The troubled ebb and flow of ‘Opsimath’ follow suit with a twinkling feeling of unknown. An extensive groove weighing in at nearly nine minutes, its unhurried nature alludes to its title; the longer you leave it sizzle, the more enriching it gets.

Flip for ‘Breatharian’. The deepest, most disarming cut of the collection laced with yearning strings and poignant chords, it’s a solar-inspired sunset piece that gradually morphs into something much darker and serious as the track progresses. Finally we conclude with ‘Cybersquatting’, a timeless mildly dubbed-out darkroom groove that flows with liquid insistency. Subtly mutating and rotating, forever pumping, it’s a true calm before the storm piece, tailored for those moments when you need a little suspense and space in your set.

Four crystal jams. Endless variations. Infinite mixes: Darkroom Dubs have delivered once again. And there’s more en route… Watch out for a new Deadstock 33s release and a new compilation ‘Darkroom Dubs Presents Summer Love’. Both due before the summer is out. Don’t put those guns away anytime soon…

Chained to a ladder: There’s no way up. There’s no way down. You’re hung on a rung and there’s there no place to escape as Dino Lenny delves into your innermost psyche with this heavy slice of pedigree Italian electronica. A Darkroom Dubs debut from the original craftsman, ‘Chained To A Ladder’ is ominous in its mood and tone, dramatic in its new romantic vocal style and uncompromised with its devilish analogue aesthetic.

Remix-wise we’re unquestionably spoilt as label bosses Silicone Soul unleash their first production of the year with an immense 9+ minute cosmic bluesy stew, cooked slow and low with deep psychedelic flavours. A version that develops the original’s story in a stark way; this is what remixes were invented for.

Last but not least, Dino seals the deal with ‘The Right Place’. A broken drum mutant powered by technoid rocket fuel, its breakbeats drive a writhing groove that’s awash with touches of classic electro, new beat and hardcore with dark broadsword bass sweeps. Splashed with sudden blasts of synth colour, Dino’s signature sense of contrast is visceral, focused and direct. A true homage to every genre’s foundations and salute to the future; tremors can be felt from techno to drum & bass.

As the recently released ‘Darkroom Dubs Volume IV’ celebrated the last few years of releases, Dino sets the scene for another exciting chapter for the label. A chapter that will see the label continue to explore its signature atmospheric late-night sounds and celebrate its 15th anniversary this year. We’ll leave you hanging right here…
