1/ Taped Out.
Top Drawer Digital's Pressa kicks off 2018 in true heavyweight style with the self-released 'Understand EP', which takes us on a seriously deep and atmospheric retro-futuristic, jungle breaks trip.
'Taped Out' steps up to the mark first and drops an intoxicating blend of dubwise blips, synth swirls and menacing rudebwoy soundbites backed by an unrelenting Think break backbone and cavernous bassline. The track expertly transports the listener back to the heady days of crammed warehouse raves, set to a soundtrack of thunderous breaks and chest rattling bass frequencies.
'Understand' follows next and delivers a 140 bpm take on the vintage Blue Note D&B formulae, where soulful, sliced and diced R&B vocals interweave with stepping breaks and soaring pads capturing the vibe of mid-nineties Reinforced Records jungle experimentation.
Pressa expertly showcases what what the jungle breaks scene has to offer with these two cuts here, as well as providing a taster of what is expected at the infamous Subsidance events that he organises. Don't miss out on this one!!!
Pressa's 'Understand EP' is available to purchase digitally for £2 (or more if you are feeling generous!) from the official Pressa Bandcamp page...
