[Dark Til Dawn Records] Amiga Breaks - 16 Bit Memories [12-Track Album Digital Download + Limited Edition CD Available Now!!!]


1/ Interdimensional Sliding.
2/ Deep Constellation.
3/ Digital Vistas.
4/ Execute Command.
5/ Titan Rise.
6/ Liquid Flow.
7/ Mind Science.
8/ Mr. Sax.
9/ Nu Jazz Kind.
10/ Positive Vibes. 
11/ U Turn Around Jupiter.
12/ Binary Dreams.

Amiga Breaks returns to Dark Til Dawn Records with the release of a massive collection of oldskool style breakbeat tracks, heavily inspired by the classic sounds of the Amiga 500-1200 computers of yesteryear. Taking a departure from his trademark 140-160 bpm forays into the realms of hardcore and jungle, Amiga Breaks winds the tempo down to 120 bpm with the brand new '16 BIT Memories' album.

Right from the first few bars of atmospheric breakbeat opening track 'Interdimensional Sliding' to the deep techno outro of 'Binary Dreams', it becomes clear that Amiga Breaks has taken great steps to reconstruct the classic, retro sounds of the early nineties, whilst adding his own personal spin on the genres contained. For the likes of 'Deep Constellation', 'Liquid Flow', 'Mind Science' and 'Nu Jazz Kind' we see a funk flavoured, 2-step garage breaks and shuffling house percussion, combine with lush strings rolling basslines to great effect, providing the perfect combination of rough and smooth textures. 

'Digital Vistas' and 'Execute Command' we are provided with two electrifying takes on the classic techno template with the former's energetic, synth heavy flow and the latter's electro-esque focus on beats and bass. Rolling breakbeats are the flavour of the day with 'Titan Rise' and 'U Turn Around Jupiter' layering a heady blend of euphoric and silky smooth synth melodies over rugged beats and deep bass notes. In addition to the aforementioned genres, the spirit of rave flow strong through the pulsating bass riffs of 'Mr Sax' and 'Positive Vibes'the latter of which utilises a positively uplifting, dubwise riddim combined with soothing pads. 

The ever versatile Amiga Breaks delivers yet another essential selection of uniquely authentic and genre-spanning oldskool flavours. If you have a penchant for those vintage Amiga sounds then this album s a must have addition to your collection!!!  

The Amiga Breaks '16 BIT Memories' album is available to purchase from the official Dark Til Dawn Bandcamp page for the bargain prices of £2.50 as a digital download, or £5 as a limited edition CD. Remember you can donate more if you wish to support the artist and label to fund future releases!!!

1/ Cruising.
2/ Feelings.
3/ Constant.
4 Dreaming.

After a short break in their release schedule, Viral-Mental Recordings are back n action, this time with a quartet of smooth, liquid, drum & bass numbers from mainstay contributor, SkorpZ who presents to us the 'Cruising' EP.

Eschewing his trademark rough and ready drum & bass persona, SkorpZ takes us on a deep and atmospheric journey with the hugely emotive opening track 'Cruising', with it's expert use of crisp, rolling breaks, smooth as silk basslines and soothing guitar licks. Up next 'Feelings' follows a similar path with it's fusion of sweeping strings and gentle piano melodies laid over a hyper-kinetic breakbeat and deep bass tones.

The pace gets upped a few notches with 'Constant' with it's electrifying combination of uplifting D&B, mellow electronica and funk flavoured vibes, before we are taken to the EP's conclusion with the closing track, 'Dreaming' which meshes together stepping breaks, down-pitched vocals and intricate, melancholia tinged chimes.

With his latest EP, SkorpZ shows his versatility as a producer by delivering an essential collection of liquid drum & bass for the mind, body and soul!!! 

The SkorpZ 'Cruising' EP is available to download now from all good Viral-Mental Records digital stores...

2017 marks the big 25th anniversary of the year 1992, which has been truly mached with Hardcore genre, thus we have been already noticing several releases coming out or even forthcoming albums celebrating with their own way the '92 Hardcore.
And so, one of the biggest Oldskool gems and classic rave anthem like 'Sweet Harmony' turns 25 years old in a few days from now and the man (one half of Liquid) behind the huge success of 1992, has officially returned with a brand new studio album!

LIQUID (a.k.a. Eamon Downes) is proudly back more musically mature than ever with a visible evolution on his clear sounds by offering new rave ideas dressed up with his modern techniques. Feels like you're making a 12track trip back in the day and the energy flows inside you...
"ENERGY FLOWS" is the ideal title of Liquid's studio return. A must to have album for each and everyone representing and respecting the Oldskool scene! Twelve amazing vibes blending acid, early Belgium sounds with modern Hardcore & Jungle Breaks as well as Breakbeats and Techno. A supreme sensational result!

This release is limited to 500 copies only. A triplepack heavyweight 12", cut loud for DJs and exclusively available a FREE mix CD by Liquid himself plus all digital versions of all tunes (320 .MP3). Good times for the Oldskool & Nu-Rave community!


Seems that Billy Daniel Bunter has played a key role for this release as you can check on the following interview, world exclusive presentation of "Energy Flows" LP on Music Mondays with Bunter interviewing Liquid playing also tunes off the LP on the background.


Catch him up live on his official album launch big event in Kamio, London on 3rd March 2017

If memories of white gloves, dodgy pills and air horns set to a soundtrack of uplifting piano melodies, rolling breakbeats and rumbling basslines excite the pleasure centre of your brain, then the latest Top Drawer Digital single from SwankOut will be guaranteed to bring out the inner raver in you.

'Back To '91' does exactly what it says on the tin by combining soothing pads with a pounding 4/4 kickdrums and breakbeat combination, soaring, rave diva vocalisations and a hands-in-the-air piano section that would put the likes of Shades Of Rhythm to shame. All set to a 1991 style, 120 beats per minute tempo to perfectly capture that authentic, oldskool sound.
Up next, 'In My Mind' immediately drops a colossal Think break over a booming, Sheffield warehouse style bassline before unleashing an iconic house vocal sample and cheeky pilfering of "that" flashback inducing piano/string section form 'Laura Palmer's Theme' (U know U know it!!!).

SwankOut delivers an essential selection of authentic reinterpretations of those classic rave anthems of yesteryear, whilst adding an unobtrusive, modern touch to the proceedings. Get on one and grab yourself a copy of 'Back To 91' / In My Mind' now!!!

If you love your drum & bass of the smooth, liquid variety then Adey B, courtesy of Invasion Recordings has just what you'll be looking for with the release of the four track 'Luminescence EP'.

Title track, 'Luminescence' sets off the proceedings by coupling rolling, 2-step breaks with lush, cinematic pads and a warm, enveloping bassline. Up next, 'Ego' provides us with the perfect soundtrack to late night drive through a sprawling cityscape with it's gentle piano motif, deep bass pulses and Burial-esque FX.

'Passion Lake' introduces us to a deceivingly heavenly, uplifting string intro before morphing into a heavyweight, neurofunk bass-riff meshed into scuttling breaks and moody atmospherics. For the closing track 'Reverse Session',  Adey slows down the tempo to deliver an exhilarating slice of deep dubstep to further demonstrate his versatility.

Invasion Recordings come up with another essential selection of high quality drum & bass that will provide the perfect accompaniment to any liquid, neuro or downtempo breakbeat set.
