To say I am a Teebee fan boy, would probably be an understatement. Ever since he joined forces with Calyx, who was known to be one of the most methodical bassline creators in Drum & Bass, they have been making amazing music non stop. Literally not a single tune thats been less than amazing. “Long Gone” offers an amazing step down a bit in vibe, to a more chill and melody based tune. Beautiful vocals mixed with ever sharp sound design makes for once again, another amazing track. Biggup to the guys for doing what they do best, making amazing Drum and Bass!
Being a production line of carefully crafted composition with a meticulous production standard, Calyx & Teebee have delivered yet again. And after dominating the Beatport Top 100 with their most recent single ‘A Day That Never Comes / Snakes & Ladders’, they won’t be applying the brakes anytime soon, especially in the lead up to their greatly anticipated second album on the Ram imprint.
Back on vocal duties, Calyx demonstrates the pair’s multi-dimensional approach to beat making. With plucky percussion relaying you through bouncing subs and a drivingly solid bassline, it defines their vast repertoire of style. They’re not scared to dip into unfamiliar territories, with Calyx’s cool vocals sitting on top of lulling guitar rhythms to provide the first part of a diverse and brilliantly crafted record.
With an album laying just out of reach, each single is bringing us closer and closer to the inevitable. All four tracks prove their still a formidable force to be reckoned with; this LP will only emphasise that fact.
