Dust Audio are back in September with a hard hitting, 4 track EP from the third part in the series ‘ Underpass’. With their first release dating back to 2010, they have tracks associated with them from the likes of Spirit, Notion, Fre4knc & incognito to name a few.
Dust Audio was originally set up by production and dj duo, Slider & Expose. The pair have been involved in the scene since its inception in the mid 90s. Running the successful night, Dust in their own city, Kingston upon Hull. They always wanted to set up a label, and even though the current recession might of seen like the wrong time to launch they decided it was now or never.
So in late 2010 they put out the feelers and spoke with a number of distribution companies about the label, the response was positive and they decided to go with Dutch distribution Triple Vision.
In-Reach thought it was about time to show our readers exactly what Dust are all about. Check the release info below:
Release date: Monday 2nd September 2013
a: Minor Rain – Distortia
b: Kyrist – Emerged
c: Boycot – Laserblack
d: Clima – Tension
Dust welcome Minor Rain back to dust audio to drop Distortia, and the man from Slovakia (who’s made some serious waves in recent months) brings his brand of twisted funk and tech goodness to Dust Audio.Opening up proceedings with a sinister string he drops the filth in a way that only Minor Rain can. Twisting the lead synth, techno stabs, screeching filters and pure moving Bass on top of some extra tight drums and percussion making an impact, this roller has everything and more. Dancefloor beware, as this will hurt from beginning to end. Minor Rain drops his next vinyl release on dust audio in the very near future…
Dust also welcome Kyrist from London and she drops Emerged on us. With its extra solid kick and gaguantion bassline this will make you listen. Skipping hats sit perfectly over the two step drums, 808 thumps and tricky little side slides add to the presence. A tune that has been heavily rotated by lots of A league dj’s, watch out from Kyrist who is bound to make a massive impression in 2013 and beyond. Killer tune.
Boycot drops his debut single on Dust Audio, Laserblack. A lonely but full figured string welcomes you in before the drums kick in. Rolling at a high pace alongside some lovely trance esque stabs before the drums slowly fade out into the distance just long enough to add the suspense before dropping back in with the droning bass and high passed amens. With its distorted stabs placed on top and intricately making its way in and out like a snake weaving in and out of a jungle over growth. A wicked debut from this Belgian producer, Listen out for more on dust audio in the near future.
Just a few weeks after Clima release When in Rains it Pours EP on our subsidiary label, Turbine Music they step it up a level with the aptly named, Tension. The dub loving duo from Spain finish the EP off in great style, the hypnotic sci fi leaning intro builds quickly and after 32 bars it drops into some serious 808 bass weight. Alongside a rolling hand clap and ultra tight bongos this is for headz that like it serious. Beeps and sweeps keep things interesting without killing that hypnotic and twisted outlook. A tune as soon as we heard we knew we had to release it.
Clima will be working very close with Dust Audio in the coming months with more tunes on the digital and the duo’s first Vinyl release already in the works.
