Another monster release from John B’s newly revitalised Beta Recordings label – this time from rising star GEMINI.
He’s been making serious waves with his dubstep productions, is already a youtube superstar and has quickly been snapped up by prestigious management company three six zero, remixing the likes of Diddy, Deadmau5, Jamiroquai, Kelis, Hadouken, Fenech Soler & Willow Smith. Gemini is now showing off his diverse productions skills & breaking new ground within the realms of Drum & Bass.
Two absolute beasts here on this exciting double A side – both leaning towards a more ‘Trance & Bass’ sound, but with a deep, refined edge, and uncompromising dancefloor power.
Without you is a beautiful, refreshing, trancey DnB roller. Deadmau5 vibes and an almost 4/4 break keep things pushing on with a progressive synth chord pattern and subtle, building pads. Perfect transition track, great in the mix – but with a breakdown that really makes the crowd take notice & progressively builds them up again to a mighty crescendo.
Destiny is more high energy & fits in perfectly as the highlight of any peak-time DnB set. Quality, crisp beats lead you in, then a breakdown to almost silence as the killer electro-synth hook comes out of nowhere, building and building until the final release & club smashing main drop kicks in. Reliably one of the biggest tracks of any set at the moment, and surely destined for great things once released into the wild…
