Review: Cyrus - Nostalgia / Rupture [CHST019]

Distance's Chestplate imprint marks its fifth birthday this year and is doing so with the sort of enthusiasm that a five year old child might: 2012 has, thus far, been a groundbreaking year for the label as the full Chesplate cohort have not only descended upon the world-famous Fabric to host the third room but have also since been making a regular contribution to MistaJam's 'Daily Dose of Dubstep' segment on BBC Radio 1Xtra. And this of course has all been backed up by a steady and, especially for an independent label, plentiful supply of quality releases.

'Nostalgia' / 'Rupture' is the fourth release from the label this year, and Cyrus' second solo 12" to bear the CHST catalogue stamp. Opening with the tough kicks, instantly-recognisable snare, and reverberating vocal sample of 'Nostalgia', the controlled approach to space and sound design has Cyrus written all over it. As the bassline enters, the swing of the drums is wrapped into a swelling groove and accompanied by a drifting synth-line which aptly implies the couched warmth of the track's title. On the flip is 'Rupture', which justifies easily its AA-side status: moving along at a lurch, driven by intricate drum patterns and a visceral sub-bass melody, this is, as it were, the dancefloor's response to 'Nostalgia'. This release serves as a perfectly-weighted balance-point in what could be seen as a historic year for the Chestplate team.

Free Download: Antics - Rundown / Rundown (TMSV Remix) [MidRun001]

Two of the hardest-working and most consistent European dubstep representatives have this week teamed up to give away two free tunes. Antics is a Belgian DJ/producer and the man behind the country's premiere dubstep event, Midnite Run, which has welcomed over the last two years, among many others, the likes of Cyrus, District, Lurka, Subreachers, Killa & Instinct, Sleeper and Goth Trad. TMSV, from the Netherlands, has been quietly carving out his own unique and highly-rated sound from the so-often-saturated 140bpm mark and marking his progression with a steady stream of releases, notably through Box Clever, as well as the criminally-overlooked 'Dem A Talk' bootleg which arguably set the ball rolling, with other producers since taking a shot at working the vocal sample into their own tunes.

Free Download: Catacombs & Knowledge - Tactics

In support of next week's M.U.D release, the Out Of Focus EP, Manchester-based pair Catacombs and Knowledge are giving away a beat put together in October of last year. 'Tactics' is an exercise in restraint: building from taut kicks and snare, a lilting synth-line and choral drapes into a swollen bassline drop and carefully-arranged hi-hats which undercut the eery top lines with a dose of swing. The second drop lets the bassline take over, slowing the drums into a march before picking up the pace again with that all-important swing.

Free Download: Heny G - 1985

To generate some hype before his official forthcoming projects, including a highly anticipated LP, the soulful Heny G has promised to release three tracks for free. '1985' is the first of these: a classic Heny G production, merging a funky beat with stabbing synths which fall neatly in to the Gangsta Boogie Music mould.

Head over to Heny G's Facebook Page to grab a free copy of 'Back in the Day' and a third tune as he makes them available.
