[Drum and Bass] BMotion – All My Love Ft. Jon Lilygreen

I was delighted to stumble across the sounds of young producer BMotion back towards the start of the year and I’m thrilled to see that he drops his follow up release on the 18th of this month. Once again releasing on the quickly establishing Soulvent Records, drum and bass new boy BMotion drops two beautifully crafted tracks in the form of ‘All My Love/Reflections’.

The single uses the crystal clear vocals of Jon Lilygreen – who was also picked up by the producer to sing on his debut piece ‘Circles’. An uplifting and vitalic track, ‘All My Love’ glides along, balancing loose, flurried drops with the warmth in Lilygreen’s sound. ‘Reflections’ is my favourite of the two, and it really showcases the serenity and emotional drive behind BMotion’s music. It’s a more toned down slice of liquid – and the melody is enveloped by the resonating, twinkling use of piano chords. He has used a recording of himself playing the drums in this piece, and they increase the urgency with smattering breakdowns underneath the stirring, yet gentle vocals. The soundtrack to a summer dream.

I continue to watch the development of Soulvent Records with great interest – their ability so far to select young, passionate composers is hugely encouraging, and each release seems to be incredibly well thought out and of the highest quality. BMotion is surely on track to get snapped up both by promoters for bookings and labels for exclusivity. I am already excited for both this producer’s next steps and the continuation of the Soulvent Records platform.

[Drum and Bass] Bryzone – Trial Run/Stargaze

If your attention hasn’t already been drawn to the work of new drum and bass imprint Soulvent Records, you need to become familiar with their sound, sharpish. The London-based label have just released their second offering since establishing themselves in the latter half of 2013 via the work of BMotion. A small, independent collection of like-minded creatives, I would firmly attest that Soulvent will continue to deliver high calibre releases as time goes on.

Bryzone is the next young talent to step up to the plate with his single Trial Run ft. Jenny Mayhem. A glorious slice of shimmering liquid, Mayhem’s softly undulating vocals make the ideal accompaniment to the prominent melody. The sophisticated use of piano riffs and elegant subtlety behind this track display Bryzone’s soulful approach to production.

On the flip comes ‘Stargaze’, a deeper and slightly more melancholy piece, still incorporating gentle piano and adding a surging wave of strings to majestic effect.

A pair of tracks with summer vibes written all over them, these are an essential addition to any D&B lover’s collection. Available on both Beatport & iTunes.
