2016 is still fresh in the air and Cyantific is about to drop his awesome new single ‘Outatime’ on Viper Recordings. So we thought this was the perfect time to catch up with the super producer to find out what his top tunes of 2015 were.
1. Inside Info, Mefjus & The Upbeats – Footpath
Everything about this tune I love. The drums are energetic and aggressive. The bass sounds like something you could get out of a robot. And the music in the intro is right up my street.
2. Culture Shock – Steam Machine
Another one off the same EP. When he makes tunes they’re always special – they have that longevity and listenability – which is perhaps something you don’t associate with a genre that moves so quickly. This is a shoe chucker of a tune, but will still be in my sets this time next year.
3. Noisia & The Upbeats – Dead Limit
It’s probably a lot of peoples number 1, and with good reason. That reese before the drop does the business. The first time I heard it I thought it was going to drop with the reese, and I was hoping it wouldn’t. It doesn’t, and is all the better for it. I don’t think there’s anyone who can do drums like these guys.
4. Ivy Lab – Sunday Crunk (Mefjus remix)
This has been in pretty much every set since I got my hands on it. Production from another planet. Incidentally, I was watching Return Of The Jedi and I heard the main melody from this in the scene from Jabba’s sail barge. Madness.
5. Culture Shock – Tangents
This one came out of left field to some degree. It’s got a very unique sound to it, it’s house influenced DnB done very well indeed. I love the arrangement of it too, you can cut across to the stabs before it drops and catch the crowd out. It also mixes really well with harder tunes.
