Alex from The Others has been in the game for a few years now. His first release on DP was in 2007 with a couple of great little tunes, 'Africa' and 'Ganja Man'. Now solo and still loyal to the Dub Police crew, his sound is a lot more polished, and this EP shows it. 'Voyager' keeps things bang up-to-date with trap influences that segue into a metallic dubstepper. 'Amazonia VIP' is all darkside swagger.
Label boss GQ clearly has a great ear for musicality, which is why he’s snapped up relative unknown producer Voyage before anyone else could get their mitts in. This is a modern roller decorated sparsely with techy metallic elements, and a soulful, confident vocal. What makes this tune particularly sophisticated is the heritage which oozes from within it. It doesn’t sound like a throwback, but more like a homage to years of jungle cultivation.
New quartet G.H.O.S.T have gained immense support from DJs across the scene, being played regularly in club sets and securing airplay on nationwide radio stations. You’ve more than likely heard these tracks already, they’ve been in circulation for over a year. This roller is a fatty, with big weight bass at the bones of it. Understated bongos subtly lift the thaumaturgy vibe to a more tropical realm.
Lane 8 completely remakes Above & Beyond’s vocal trance anthem into a seductive deep house record with some gorgeous melodic flourishes. It’s perfect for those summer vibes, though some DJs might want to remove the questionable vocals altogether with a dub version.
