Track of the day #17

As of late, the old Drum and Bass champion is attempting a come back. In the mid-nineties, Photek propelled DnB into another dimension, giving the genre a legitimacy it was craving. Alongside Source Direct, he shaped its future like few did ever since and before, but soon sought out other musical ventures (House music, film music scoring…). Sure there was a mid-00’s return to the roots, but it didn’t last, and soon, Rupert Parkes vanished again behind the doors of his hollywood mansion.

And suddenly, without notice, the first half of 2011 already saw the release of six new 12″s! One of the main dubstep imprint (Tectonic) even enlisted his talents to celebrate their 50th release.
So if the new music is a mixed-bag of house, breaks and DnB aesthetics tainted dubstep, it’s obvious Rupert is at least in touch with the current trends as he enlisted a handful of today’s bass music’s best producers. Indeed, those EPs have been graced with remixes from the likes of Boddika, Adisson Groove, Pinch and Falty DL, the last of which is a beautiful piece of quirky bass house for lack of better description. Enjoy!

Cheers,
