Submorphics returns to Shogun Audio's Sgn:Ltd offshoot this month, so to celebrate, he's knocked up a rolling mix for our Fresh Kicks series.
The San Francisco producer has been steadily turning out liquid killers for over a decade now, dropping singles and EPs via a plethora of labels — most notably Innerground, LTJ Bukem's revived Good Looking imprint, Liquid V and of course, Sgn:Ltd. Along the way he's also remixed some of the genre's finest, including Lenzman (for Goldie's Metalheadz outlet) and Camo & Krooked for the mighty Hospital Records.
His latest effort, the 'Without You' EP, sees Submorphics deliver four tracks of "synthetic soul", as he puts it in the press release, promising "vibes ranging from uplifting to melancholy".
As expected, his mix follows in a similar vein, primarily focussing in on euphoric liquid drum & bass, with the occasional gnarly twist thrown in for good measure. Alongside Submorphics' own material, features include DRS' recent cut 'I Will', sublime number 'The Sway' by Klax, FD's latest, 'Serious', plus efforts from Skeptical & Alix Perez, SpectraSoul, Nu:Tone, Villem, Seba and more.
'Without You' is out 17th February, when you can pick it up from all good online retailers. In the meantime, listen to the set and check out the full tracklist below.
