Memtrix – Clouds In Commune / IC YR PAIN – Sotto Voce
December 29, 2016
Following on from the immense ‘Towers EP’ described by Mixmag as ‘outrageously impressive’, Oscar Rawlinson aka Memtrix seals the year with two more tracks of breathtaking drum & bass featuring more vocals from himself on the soaring ‘Clouds In Commune’ alongside the DJFriction favourite, ‘IC YR PAIN’.
“To me, this release is a natural progression from my last EP ‘Towers’ in terms of direction and sound. The two records intertwine well in my opinion, and the timing feels right to release the music. The tracks vary quite significantly stylistically, and are at two different ends of the spectrum regarding the mood and vibe, and both have been really fun to play out live.” Memtrix 2016
Two massive tunes from the Sotto Voce camp, I have been playing IC YR PAIN on repeat for the last couple weeks and in my dj sets, if this release is any indication of what Spor’s label has in store for 2017 we can’t wait for the year to get here already! Both tunes on this set are bangers, it takes a brave producer to use their own vocals on their tracks, but Memtrix does it seamlessly and the end result is pretty damn good! I guess this is what makes a producer a legit artist. In a time where a lot of producers forget that making music is art it is refreshing to hear Memtrix do his thing!
