This second release marks the beginning of the Various Artists series for Counterpoint Recordings.
With this release we provide a worldwide perspective on the deeper vibes of DnB, and you can noticeably hear the various cultures expressed in the sound.
Side A, entitled “Amongst Giants” by British Duo Volatile Cycle is a hard hitting “roller”, with a “slashing gritty” bassline that delivers the entire groove that you can expect out of the Counterpoint Camp.
Side B, “Imagination” by Brazilian up & coming producer “Zombie At Work”, is a state of the art South American “Runaway Roller”, with a continuum of high-hats and drums, that keep you moving while a strong pressurized bassline takes you on a beautiful journey.
Side C, “Step Back” written and produced by Portuguese producer HumaNature. Growing up in the USA certainly was a very big influence for this artist, and you can plainly hear it in this tune. The hypnotic vibes of the drum breaks, with the hip-hop influenced vocal, delivers an on spot groove that represents what deep DnB has to offer.
