CELO – The Deep – SLR022. Available on Sub-Label Recordings – Yellow. A Drum & Bass Record Label.
We welcome CELO to Sub-Label Recordings – Yellow with his fantastic release, The Deep.
Beginning with ‘The Deep’ and the minimal side of CELO’s love for drum & bass. The purpose of the track is to set a simple, dark mood suitable for the atmospheric club nights. Using influences from Leftfield to modern day producers such as ARKAIK, the track starts with an almost empty atmosphere whilst precise drums set the pace.
The thick sub bass fills the track after the drop, twisting and turning in the musical space with effects rising in intensity. A track definitely on the darker side of CELO’s arsenal of dancefloor weapons.
Secondly, we have ‘Elements’. This is CELO’s showcase in simple, minimal drum & bass. A slower paced roller filled with dark tones and an almost tribal theme, the track uses a heavy tribal bass drum as it’s main source. The large drum hits ark back to our tribal ancestral roots, where drums communicate messages across great distances. Perfect as a deep bass line for minimal dnb.
Thirdly ‘Underground’ rounds off the EP. The track begins with a dense, thick atmosphere signaling that this track is on the darker side of the genre. Precision drums build the track towards a drop with deep rolling bass lines, almost pushed to the point of destruction. Techno style stabs further support the track towards the climatic reese bass, signalling the track energetic yet dark mood.
Another great weapon for the drum & bass dance floor.
