Icaros, like much of his catalogue, tries to replicate and depict the mystical concepts and disciplines that are interwoven into practices like Shamanism and Buddhism. The album itself is a stellar blend of what we've come to know and love from the virtuoso (furious breakbeats, deep bass, and swirling synth layers) but with a touch of experimental flavor in certain spots.Read More
England's Toby George Martin (or T.G.M) is quickly making a name for himself in the underground Drum & Bass circuit by way of his stellar productions. Layered pads coupled with heavy breaks and gritty bass round out the sound of the Bournemouth product.
His work has not gone unnoticed as his Divinity & Searching EPs have been signed to Omni Music and Monochrome Recordings respectively. Despite his age, Toby has a very mature sound that harkens back to the days of old. Now living in California, T.G.M continues to evolve his sound and artistic flare.Read More
England’s brilliant Omni Music label (helmed by producer Eschaton) is quickly tearing up the underground Drum n Bass scene with it’s quality releases. Eschaton has successfully managed to group together up and coming talents like The Drumkilla (check out his interview here), Kasious, and Mutants. As well as some heavy hitting legends like Pete Rann, Voyager, LM1, and one of my personal favorites, Aural Imbalance. By seamlessly amalgamating old and new, Omni has become something to behold for listeners who prefer the more classic atmospheric stylings, as opposed to the contemporary Pop based DnB structure.Read More
About a month ago I discovered the fantastic music of Russia’s Kirill Koloshnitsyn (aka The Drumkilla) after browsing through Omni Music’s Bandcamp page. Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a huge Atmospheric Drum N Bass head. I absolutely adore it and much of the LTJ Bukem era stuff has had a big impact on my own musical tastes and productions. To me, it represents the perfect blend of chill but intrusive (and mostly danceable) beats for enjoying and potentially droning out to. After hearing The Drumkilla’s track “Planets Around” I decided that it would be a perfect track to use as the introduction theme for my Youtube channel (which will be coming as soon as I finish the damn thing. Adobe After Effects is unforgiving as hell) so I contacted him and he was more than happy to allow me to use it. Some time later, I contacted him again and asked if he would be interested in doing an interview for the site, and thankfully, I received the same response!Read More
