SpectraSoul 'How We Live'


Since launching their own label 'Ish Chat Music' in 2016, SpectraSoul have been on a rich run of form with 3 solo EP's as well as the most recent collaborative EP with Alix Perez and his 1985 Music imprint.

It has all been leading to this, the impending release of their 3rd album, released on 20.10 on Ish Chat. Drawing on the wealth of experience from their 2 albums on Shogun as well as their imperious back catalogue on some of D&B's finest labels, it promises to encapsulate everything that has made this duo one of the D&B's leading lights.

Optical

Optical is the pseudonym of Matt Quinn, a renowned drum and bass producer and DJ from England. He is best known for his work with Ed Rush, fellow head of the Virus Recordings label, and as a pioneer of the techstep and neurofunk sound. His first single for Metalheadz, 'To Shape the Future'/'Raging Calm' (1997) and his collaborative material with Ed Rush, such as the Wormhole album (1998), were archetypal developments in the style. 

He can perhaps qualify as one of the most underrated musicians of the modern era. His mind has crafted sounds which were never before heard, moods which were completely original, and his vision of the future, although ultimately dark and disjointed, is beautifully vivid and addictive. It’s a world he pulls you into with each and every track and only a handful of artists can begin to dream of being this successful in their work.

Featured Artist

Reso

After a two-year break following his Ricochet LP for Hospital Records, during which he scored a new virtual reality game for PlayStation 4, Reso returns with four tracks of spirited dance music that mark the inaugural release on his RX0 label.

The EP is driven by two upfront drum & bass productions ('Kodama' & 'Tiberium') that highlight Reso’s attention to detail and flair for music with an epic scope, as well as showcasing other sides of Reso’s sonic world with the instrumental boom bap of 'Fluid Mechanics' & 'Mantis'.

The EP is out now, and you can grab your copy here.
