2012 is all about expanding, growing, re-affirming and re-developing what it is you are, and what you do... With this in mind, we are very proud to announce our collaboration 12" series with New York's Offshore Recordings... The OSRORG Collaboration Series... Let's get busy in the place!
New York’s premier experimental Drum & Bass imprint, Offshore Recordings, teams with London’s left of centre 170 bpm music tastemaker, Organic, to present the OSRORG series. The two combine mutual musical vision with a joint exploration of the subversive sounds. The creative essence of both New York and London are captured in this transatlantic collaboration- showcasing true urban breakbeat culture.
- Fracture & Neptune - "Ups & Downs VIP"
Fracture & Neptune outdo themselves transforming “Ups & Downs VIP” into a straight-up dance floor pleaser. The duo calls on their favorite ingredients; a tough 2 step beat, wall shaking sub bass and a funked-out Emu bass line.
Clearly influenced by musical greats of the classic 90’s era, though reinvented with modern production etiquette and finesse, Fracture & Neptune create what is arguably their most dance floor track to date. Proceed with caution when this beast gets dropped.
- Graphic feat. Beans - "I Am Metal" Compound One Remix
Compound One blur the lines between Hip Hop and Drum & Bass while reinterpreting another gem from the Offshore vaults.
Half-time, bionic drum-beats lacerate through full fat analogue bass tones. On this rare occasion Compound One move away from their usual 140 bpm template and embrace a more dynamic Drum & Bass tempo. Cleverly re-arranging original Antipop Consortium member Beans’ rap vocal while maintaining the impact and rawness of the original track.
To complete the package, artwork has been specially commissioned from Offshore Recordings mainstay and graphic art guru Cede. Articulating the transatlantic nature of the series perfectly while capturing the essence of musical exploration…
