Track listing

Basic Rhythm - Dread / And Soon The Darkness

Release Date: 25th February 2022

Coming hot on the heels of his recent release on Future Retro, Basic Rhythm continues his return to his first passion, Drum & Bass. Basic Rhythm started buying Hardcore, Jungle and Drum & Bass back in the early ‘90s, eventually hosting a regular show on Rude FM in the late ‘90s before venturing out into other musical areas in the early 2000s. This single marks a return to the dark brooding menace and punchy breaks that only Drum & Bass does so well.

On the A side is the title track, Dread. A tense brooding affair that opens with lush strings and chopped breaks, evoking the dark theatrical menace of late ‘70s neo-noir cinema, before unleashing tumbling breaks and a chest rattling sub.

Upping the tempo slightly on the B side is And Soon The Darkness. It opens with a dark drone and stepping drums, punctuated with suspenseful strings, before letting loose the breaks and a huge bass line evocative of mid ‘90s Back 2 Basics but with a contemporary approach. This one is a dance floor smasher!

With support from scene stalwarts DJ Storm, Kid Drama, Tim Reaper, DJ Flight and more this 12” is bound to do some damage!
