British beat-maker Jacob Plant has teamed up with fellow UK-based reggae artist Stylo G for their inaugural collaboration “Bike Engine.” Stylo G’s gruff vocals narrate the story of summer lust and cascade over Plant’s high-octane beat which is brimming with raw, rhythmic bass plucks. The perfect party-starter for a poolside soiree or a main stage play, “Bike Engine” is the dancehall anthem the electronic world has been craving this festival season.Read More
British duo System2 ready their debut album on Skint Records this September – a musical twelve tracker exemplary of their eclectic production abilities.
Growing up in Manchester, the pair surrounded themselves with electronic music from an early age attending venues like Sankeys where they later became residents. They turned their hand to production back in 2002 and have been going from strength to strength ever since, with their diligence leading to signings on the likes of VIVa MUSiC, 8bit, Roush and Get Physical when not pioneering their own selftitledimprint. This album marks their first ever appearance on Skint Records.
This is a delightfully eclectic LP from System2 that is sure to win them a host of new fans this summer.
‘Hallucinated Surf’ sees Hervé’s diverse production styles exhibited to the fullest throughout and features a number of standout collaborations with the likes of Zebra Katz, Meridian Dan and Steve Mason.
The album is also split into two parts, the first comprising of Hervé’s signature bass house sound, which was recorded entirely at his studio in London. The second half of the album explores a more downtempo and experimental style which Hervé recorded in the countryside, demonstrating a more conceptual side to his work and a progression of his album, ‘The Art of Disappearing’. He says of album 2, “I went to the countryside to make field recordings and sketched a lot of ideas at a good friend’s lodge in the middle of a forest, which was great inspiration and also for focus.”
