Back of the Stack #23 – Quadrant & Iris

#Back Of The Stack’, catching up with artists in the scene every couple of weeks reminiscing on some of their favourite tracks from back in the day. No real rules, just sharing some musical knowledge and reflecting on the past…

Quadrant, Iris are responsible for some of the hardest dancefloor rollers in the last few years, so we were very pleased that they submitted their selections and to see what inspires them!

K – No Sleep – Subtitles

Subtitles has put out some of the best dnb of all time, from early releases with Teebee and K through to the introduction of Ulterior Motive to the world and beyond. We selected K – No Sleep because it does so much with so little, the breaks, atmospherics, and bassline are perfectly placed and effortlessly flow into one another. Just great.

Matrix, Fierce, RymeTyme – Light Sleeper – C4C Recordings

This one is a blueprint track for us– it perfectly represents the tech sound we love from the late 90s and early 2000s, from the atonal strings to the bubbly bass workout to the slinky drums. It flew a bit under the radar when it came out but this is one we constantly go back to for inspiration for our own sound.

Break, Hydro – Immaculate – Quarantine

This tune comes from two of our favorite artists, and has it all: great drums, great melody, and that perfect vocal tucked in between. It’s tough picking a favorite Quarantine tune but this one might be it. You could probably put this tune anywhere in a set any time and it fits right in. Aptly named.
