Up next on newly reinvigorated Emotif Recordings comes a storming 12" from production team D-Region & Code. Known for their breathtaking remixes and heavy-hitting solo work, these skilled producers are a welcome addition to Emotif's future heritage.
D-Region is the founder of the Canadian independent label Furious Records and has worked with respected music groups like Universal/EMI, Moonshine, ZYX, Moist and Toronto?s Nice and Smooth in his 12 years in the DnB scene. In his career, D-Region has landed four singles on Beatport?s coveted Top 10 sales chart (drum n bass) and dozens of tracks on the Beatport Top 100. His single ?The Terminator?s Theme? debuted at number 1 on Beatport when it was released in 2005. DJ Code hails from London and has been on a steady accent through the ranks as the latest addition to the Kool FM roster. His past releases on Emotif including ?Brainstorm? & ?Rudeboy Rebellion? with fellow producer Sketch were absolutely massive. It's good to see him back!
'Hustle From Born feat. Shutdown and Trinity Chris' is a synth-led powerhouse. It kicks off with a modulated lead line and dub skanks before a huge saw-wave bass heaves into motion over the pounding beats. Shutdown provides additional beef in the production whilst Trinity Chris delivers the hype with his dancefloor-riling vocal. This is hi-energy peak time material. Trinity Chris is a JUNO nominated (Grammy Awards of Canada) artist who has toured across North America sharing the stage with the likes of Mavado, Buju Banton, Beenie Man, Ghostface Killah, French Montana, D-Block, Shabba Ranks, Sizzla & dozens more.
'Live Your Life feat. Shadow Bloc, Lady MC and Klair Quest' is a colourful roller that follows it's precursors sensibilities with detailed synth work and layered harmonies. Frost has had "LYL" on a exclusive dubplate for last couple of months so no doubt you would have heard it in his recent sets!
The beats take the mid-ground with Lady MC and Klair Quest giving that feminine flair that keeps the pace pumping. Futurestep DnB duo Shadow Bloc from Toronto step-up for additional production duties. Between them they have classical training and Juno-nominated songwriting skills, which is apparent in their multi-faceted energy. Best Female MC at the 2012 National Drum & Bass Awards, Lady MC has been an integral part of the jungle and drum & bass scene since as far back as 1995. She has built a reputation for herself as one of the hardest working women in the game. Expect big things from her this year!
Available on 12" and digital at all good stores.
