All hail the mighty Fade: a decorated D&B don who’s putting the Ukraine on the map for all the right reasons…
When he’s not building up his own Faded Music empire, he can be spotted on some of the most respected imprints in the game such as IM:LTD, Abducted, Invisible and, of course, Beta Recordings. Having teased and pleased us last year with genre-smelting ‘Spectral Forms’, he’s returned to John B’s longstanding brand with two of his heaviest, most creative compositions to date.
‘Trap Game’ is the ultimate dark document; slick, sick and slippery, it conjures up connotations of late 90s late nights at The End, sweaty Renegade Hardware sessions and long-lost subterranean raves in abandoned inner city industrial areas. Rolling shakers, bulbous subs, spacious elements and jazzed minor chord flurries, it encompasses everything that’s great about jungle… And it does so while staring point blank into the future.
‘Trap & Bass’ brings us kicking and screaming into the stark, dark present. Toying playfully with smouldering 808 kicks that have become the soundtrack du jour of late, here Fade shows the trap set how the best D&B artists massage their machines. With provocative spurts of sharp steppy riddims peppered throughout, it’s a unique fusion of genres that’s so tightly sprung with pensive energy when the D&B dynamic kicks in your floor will lose their minds quicker than you can say ‘damn son!’
Two absolute killer joints, one mind-blowingly talented producer. No one does it quite like Fade… Miss this and you’ll be doing yourself and your dancefloor a serious disservice.
