Forge’s 2nd release on Silk for 2016, showcases his techno heritage with dubbed out techno vibes and minimal production methods reminiscent of famous crusty analog drum machines. Solid kicks, creamy atmospheres and deep techno soundscapes drive ‘Analogue’ while ‘Return’ is strewn with tape delays and vintage verbs that cascade over the minimal percussion layers. Considering these tracks are at 170bpm it makes everybody wonder why Forge doesn’t experiment more at slower tempos.
Sunchase throws down some serious bass pressure for the next remix on Solace. Malk & Starjam lend their already amazing track ‘All I Need’ to Sunchase for a big rework. Out very soon on an already massive E.P with additional remixes from the L.P by talented producers Compa, Ghostek & Akuratyde.
The fast rising Akuratyde delivered one of his best works in the subtle form of ‘Last Forever’ just a few releases ago. Akuratyde returns to Silk off the back of his ‘Embrace E.P’ on Blu Mar Ten Music. We now revisit his ‘Last Forever’ E.P with a host of updated remixes from artists including; Random Movement, Method One, Forge, Eusebeia and RQ. Spread over 6 tracks from experimental soft electronics through to beautiful liquid and harder edged sounds, this remix E.P is a true expedition in creative D’n’B.

A quick review of the massive ‘West Coast’ by Starjam released on Silk last December. You can also check Starjam’s latest work via the ‘Elements’ L.P on Solace Records.
The Solace camp announce a brand new remix by Ghostek of Malk & Starjam’s ‘Wrong’ via Soundcloud. No release date has been announced yet but you can preview the monstrous track below:
One of Russia’s finest producers and genre bending extraordinaire returns with his debut single. Well know for his abstract and futuristic productions in the 140 / bass music category, ‘Ghostek’ delivers an earth shattering take on minimal and progressive drum n bass.
Warping baselines penetrate the delicate and intricate drum patterns on the techno influenced ‘False Flag’, ethereal voices drift in and out of the mist and much like a witches potion this cut is seriously toxic. For the flip side ‘Ghostek’ leaves us with an open mouth gasping for air as metallic riddims layered over sizzling mid range put us into a hypotonic trance. As we reach the surface and look down all that’s remaining is pure shock-out magic.

Opening the gates for the first ever LP on Solace are two relatively unknown producers from Ukraine and Belarus – Malk & Starjam. Symbolically speaking if you keep the faith you will be rewarded and the upcoming duo have not disappointed with a body of work that’s taken almost two years to finish but once you join the dots between dubstep, garage and house it’s easy to see what a futuristically diverse and soulful debut L.P they have delivered.
