Detuned Transmissions is a brand new label on the radar for us over at In-Reach. Set up and run by Montreal’s Jason oS, one half of Daat. The roots of this city are well known for its experimental electronica and the label certainly brings a whole new approach to Drum & Bass.
After a number of releases on Offshore Recordings and Mjazz, Daat returns with a impressive collaboration with Dominic Ridgway for this first release on Detuned Transmissions.

FORMAT: 12” VINYL & DIGITAL
Drawing influence from a post apocalyptic vision of Montreal, “1999” delivers a sonically disturbing bass pastiche coupled with crisp analogue percussion. A haunting vocal sets the scene for the low end workout that follows.
“The year is 1999, gangs have taken control… There is no law.”
“Crashes” follows “1999” like a calm ocean after a storm. Soothing pads cascade over a reassuringly warm bassline and rhythmic beats. Both Daat and Dominic Ridgway’s respective production styles come together cohesively for a track that keeps on giving. A statement 12” and a greatly promising new label.
Support from Rinse FM’s DJ Flight, Tony Justice, Silent Dust and Organic.
