TRUSS TO LAUNCH IN BIRMINGHAM

New club in the Midlands!
U - Grum - Anjunabeats

Grum makes his Anjunabeats debut with another solid indication he’s ready for the big league. ‘U’ is an enigmatic, progressive stormer that pitches its flag somewhere ambiguously between house and trance, maximising appeal for both scenes. Led by a rich, colourful electro synth hook, it’s backed by a driving house kick that maximises dancefloor functionality. More importantly though is how Grum has tapped into that mysterious essence that defined early progressive, making ‘U’ one of the standout electro/progressive records of the year so far.

Triangles - Andre Sobota - MicroCastle

Sobota has deftly avoided being cornered into any particular genre, producing drum & bass to techno and everything in-between, though with ‘Triangles’ he unleashes his trance chops with a record that’s unashamedly grandiose. There’s a hands-in-the-air vibe to the harmonies, and while the deeper grooves keep it one step away from full-blown floaty euphoric trance, that step is a defining one. An impressive and distinct move for the MicroCastle stable.  

Toxin - Etch - Wisdom Teeth

After first appearing on Blackdown’s Keysound imprint back in 2013, Brighton’s Etch has been pushing his dark, skeletal identity via the Soundman Chronicles and Space + Time labels. On new label Wisdom Teeth, he offers up a typical anachronistic piece, an esoteric skin stretched across the faded bones of jungle’s past for a slow-mo bump. In contrast, label honcho K-Lone drops a chirpy little number full of jiggly rhythmic elements and slinky sub bass.

Back In My Life - Boxer & Forbes pres Dandy - Colorize

A sleeper of a record from Colorize that warrants attention as a proper gem, ‘Back In My Life’ is a seductive slice of melodic progressive that’s brimming with ambient shimmers, dramatic drumrolls and huge basslines, packing a dancefloor punch without letting things spill gratuitously over into trance.  Keep it in your box if you really want to take a house set up a notch.
