Fre4knc steps back into Dust Audio Vinyl Territory with the fierce stepper, Beastbox. Collaborating with the Netherlands number One beatboxer , Maask. Opening up with an intricate drum pattern from the Human Voice Chameleon that is Maask, Fre4knc transforms this into drum & bass form with ease. Once the bass announces itself with gargantuan proportions, keeping your body still is not an option. Again the vocal chords of Maask are demonstrated on the low frequency of the sub! Fre4knc adds his own trademark shuffles and percussion which are the catalyst for the roller-coaster ride that Beastbox becomes! Overall this is a very original concept that sits warmly in the 170 bracket. Its been quite an 18 months for the Dutch man, with his first vinyl outing on Dust Audio 001 alongside Mindmapper progressing into releases on Samurai and the much anticipated Long Player, Transit 2 on Dispatch coming soon. We are truly excited to present Beastbox on wax through Dust Audio. Minor Rain also returns to Dust Audio Vinyl for the second time after dropping Heckler on our 002 release. This time around he presents the jazz infused tech roll out known as 'Jazz Pants'. A wicked sleazed out intro with live percussion recorded by the multi-talented man himself. Horns bring in the double bass which builds then rolls into some pure tech funk whilst retaining all that jazz. Imagine Miles Davis sat in front of a sequencer in the 21st some idea what this tune is all about. Minor Rain still manages to give it his own trademark with ultra tight percussion, lovely switch ups, rolling hats which still retaining the original analogue concept. Late night smoke filled freeform jazz clubs at 174 mph! It's been quite a year for Minor Rain, the Slovakian has become a rising star in drum n bass with releases on Med School, Samurai and also winning the Dispatch Remix competition. With lots more in store for us at Dust Audio we always get a thrill from his music and never more so than when we first heard Jazz Pants. Again expect to hear more from him on Dust Audio very soon.
