Guestlist Recommends Reach ldn 42 Issue 81 / 2015 DNB neRo Nero are bringing their live show to the O2 Academy Brixton 28th November The first EP from Reach LDN is massive - start as you mean to go on Nicky D'Silva has long been intertwined with bass music but he is now focusing on the drum & bass, jungle style and his debut EP has set the standard high. It's a two- track piece. First up 'My Everything', featuring the sweet vocals from Dani Sylvia, is ready to trash the floors. A little more filthy than the A-side, its blistering bassline maintains the high energy levels throughout. Up next is 'Temperature Rising' featuring vocals from Lord Kimo. A dance floor groover, it's got the bounce, the swag; it's an all round club banger. It'll be a hard EP to follow up, but D'Silva has had years in the game under a number of different aliases, like the breaks master Pyramid, so he's no doubt ready to step up to the mark! One of the UK's most exciting dance music acts in recent times, Nero turned the commercial charts upside down with their mainstream, underground crossover dubstep and drum & bass records. Since blowing up in the music scene, they have performed across the globe and produced a collection of high profile releases. Performing alongside the group in Brixton will be drum & bass superstar Sub Focus, original junglist turned crank house creator DJ Zinc, long time Ram Records signing Culture Shock and the Digitial Farm Animals. album of the month Rockwell - obsolete medium Rockwell has blasted back onto the scene in signature style Rockwell returned with a new tune, 'Please Please Please', that exploded on the radio waves; premiering on Mistajam's show, played by Zane Lowe and if that weren't enough – it made it as Friction's 'Fire'. It's classic Rockwell, all the boundaries are pushed. He has created a wicked track that chimes much like a 90s house tune, just its lot faster and with a tonne of bass thrown in, you know just because. The return is made all the sweeter as 'Please Please Please' will be the first cut from the technical master's debut album, scheduled for release late November. Entitled Obsolete Medium the 15 track LP sums up his style; fast and technical. Whilst delivering some straight up drum & bass, the album also sees Rockwell pushing into other territories from hip-hop to house. Other features on the album include collaborations with L'aimant, Sam Binga & Hyroglifics, and Jams to name a few. His unique and intricate style is apparent across the whole album that really proves his talents as a producer. He joins the dots between all the different styles, and keeps true to his sound that has over the years left many clubbers gobsmacked with its innovative and fresh take on drum & bass.
