decode

Shotgunning their way to the top in the mid-90s as part of the legendary Bristol-based trio known as Kosheen, Decoder and Substance return to the scene from which they were spawned in the form of “Red” recently released via Technique Recordings.

With Jakes and Susie Ledge stepping up on the vocal side of things, Decoder and Substance turn in a deep and filthy cut proving that they are still on top of things. As they look ahead to future projects including a series of remixes and a rumored compilation project in the works, the influential duo let us sneak a peek inside their virtual record bags to see what kind of vibe they are feeling these days.

KRONOLOGY +DIVINE ELEMENTS “SUBMERGE” (TECHNIQUE)
Absolutely loving the energy on this one. With rolling beats and top production centered on a horrid riff – these guys are on a roll!

THE PROTOTYPES “POP IT OFF” FEAT. MAD HED CITY (VIPER)
Nice rolling beats and junglist vocals married with a large drop make this one explode with a BOOM! Sure to get your adrenaline pumped like a siren going off!

DOCUMENT ONE “JAZZ CLUB” (TECHNIQUE)
A nice fusion of chilled-out vibes, old skool flava and a groove that can keep you up all night!

SPECTRASOUL “ALWAYS” (SHOGUN AUDIO)
Centered on beautiful vocals and soulful beats, the strings and piano are sure to transport you off to a happy place.

MISANTHROP “I NEED MORE” (BLACKOUT MUSIC NL)
A large and heavy stepper that is surprisingly chill but in a good way!

FRICTION VS. ULTERIOR MOTIVE “CURFEW” (SHOGUN AUDIO)
With a nice roll and flavasome groove, these wicked beats are sure to keep the party on a high.

LOXY + RESOUND “RAIN MAN” (CYLON)
We’ve been loving the deep groove and vibes that Loxy and Resound have been bringing. The tribal sounds on this one in particular are really cool.

LOXY + RESOUND “HOWL” (CYLON)
More deep grooves from these guys that we can’t get enough of. Pounding beats and a great depth make this a go-to track.

KRAKOTA “GHOSTS” (HOSPITAL)
This is that classic Hospital sound that is refreshingly nostalgic while also being firmly geared towards the future.

MATRIX + FUTUREBOUND “GLOW WORM” (VIPER)
Matrix and Futurebound always bring a big melodic vibe to their tracks which we absolutely love. This one has a heavy big rave room vibe to it that smashes it every time!
