Guestlist Recommends FabRiclive 82: ed Rush & optical 36 Issue 77 / 2015 DNB the summeR dRum & bass boat paRty Beats. Bass. On a bad ass boat! The pair bring the pain with their mix for the club Perhaps the deadest duo in drum & bass, Ed Rush & Optical have stepped up to the mark and have given us the latest instalment in Fabric's monthly mixtape series. The Virus Recordings bosses have given Fabriclive a hefty 39 tracked mix that's jammed full of exclusive records, unreleased material and of course the odd classic here and there. They bring to Fabriclive their own unique flavour of drum & bass; it's harsh, unrelenting energy that's focused for the floor. The highly acclaimed duo do themselves justice with their offering for the Farringdon club of which they regularly make an appearance. Kick off the month as you mean to go on with some scorching Brazilian-style drum & bass from DJ Marky on the 1st. Marky is well known for his mixing technique, so expect scratching aplenty as you sail down the Thames. SP:MC is also on board, as is Tom Central who will be spinning a classics set. And of course, it's not a summer boat party without the Soundcrash DJs, so they'll also be on hand to keep the vibes moving. album oF the month June milleR - Robots & Romans An intense, highly energised body of work, June Miller drops Robots & Romans, and it's heavy, even for Ram's standards! The drum & bass duo June Miller have put together an album that will have you shaking by the end. Robots & Romans is a combination of cinematic interludes, brain- churning build-ups and technical genius that's all rounded off with tectonic bass levels. Standard. It's an adventure in sound, one that's intricate, emotional and at points a little overwhelming. There are many unexpected twists and turns that make it impossible to have your attention focused anything but every last second of every last track. Each track completely engrosses you with its technical ability, demanding your attention and all for good reason! Robots & Romans contains vast atmospheres created from complicated layers of sound before drops of atomic proportions, some of a rather experimental nature. It's not all peculiar drum patterns and overloaded percussion loops though, 'Stormtrooper' featuring Virus Syndicate is an intense half time jab to the chest and 'Further Seems Forever' is filled to the brim with emotion. Taking things a little more chilled with a liquid vibe is 'We Are Not Human', which is finished off with soft vocals from Hannah Lux. June Miller has produced an album that encompasses drum & bass in all its forms, with a heavy lean on the technical, ever-popular neurofunk sound. It stands true to June Miller's trademark sound - music that can completely fill a room. It's invasive, intimidating and certainly not for the faint hearted!
