I’m always excited when new music gets sent to DAAHQ. Not all of it is good, but thankfully most is. This most definitely is.
I’m a drum n’ bass head. Have been since I got a cassette of Goldie’s Timeless passed to me at school in about 1996. I was up to my ears in Oasis at that point (wasn’t everybody?) – the breaks on that blew my mind apart. I’ve got with other styles over the years, but DnB remains very much my beat.
Burn Down is a tight, focused tune. In a post Rudimental climate, this is a good thing. Emma Boudin’s silky smooth vocal slides down the beats perfectly; she has a fantastic DnB voice. Reminded me of Onallee from Reprazent, which is a very good thing in my book.
The breaks are razor sharp and minimal. I’m an old skool breaks guy (Amen, Brother!) but this approach suits this track. Lets it breath. Good work indeed.
So here it is. Check it for yourself. Good stuff indeed…
