Fybe:One returns to future drum & bass label Diffrent Music for his debut solo EP in September, and we've snapped up a luscious little collab with veteran spitter Sense MC for an exclusive first listen.
It’s not often a producer will boast a catalogue featuring the likes of experimental deep house outlet Project Mooncircle, Lisbon’s Substruct label, and of course, Diffrent — especially not all under the same alias. South Londoner Fybe:one has a penchant for going against the grain, however.
As able to craft blissed out garage as he is forward-thinking house, or skittering half-time, Fybe’s style makes for upbeat, easy listening, guaranteed to leave you feeling vibesy.
Meanwhile, his label, Shades Recordings, pushes the boat out even further, and is home to not only Fybe’s own debut LP ‘Elements’, but records by Boxwork, Sieren and Duct and more, which range from slamming techno to experimental ambient works and wibbly-wobbly house.
His latest outing on Diffrent gives us the sublime 'First Chapter'. Featuring the vocals of Sense MC, the track is a soft, synthy number, which doesn't even offer up a beat until almost a minute in, when bubbly percussion kicks things into a more playful gear.
Listen to 'First Chapter feat. Sense MC' below, and pre-order a copy of the full 'New Soul Music' EP over at the Diffrent Music store ahead of its release on 8th September.
