DJ E – Anything For U – M Ocean Records

by | Feb 12, 2024 | Spotlight, Tunes

What’s Up DnB heads!  Got a release from a label I haven’t covered here before but the EP is from a good friend of mine, DJ E.  This legend has been putting out bangers for years and is usually the man you go to when you want it deep and dark.  

This EP is called Anything For U and is a 3 track affair which sounds instantly from the first beat that it’s going to be a banger.

The title track Anything For U starts with a building intro that chucks in some very DJ E sounding drums which is a great thing because he writes some rough, gritty beats that get your head nodding.  The vocals layered over the top are really melodic and give a sense of a chilled out tune coming your way but the drop which has a hefty bassline and those rough, techy drums I mentioned mean you screw your face up and nod your head.  Banger of a track and I expected nothing less from this Tech Lord, DJ E.

Next up is Sense of Direction, which immediately punches you in the face with a rolling beat, then a robotic vocal sample which leads you to a proper tech sounding sample that takes you to a deep, dark place.  The tune hasn’t even dropped yet and I’m already out of my seat!  When it does drop you are hit with a real smooth but heavy bass line and that sick beat and synths creep back in to take you on a journey through the inner workings of E’s mind.

 Last but not least is ‘By Your Side’ and this one starts with a real theatrical opening which seems to give the impression something big is about to happen, right from the get go.  A cool vocal sample hits with a resonant snare and melodic samples but it sounds evil already and I can’t wait for the drop.  I’ve already turned up the volume in preparation…..Oof what a sick drop.  That snare hits just right and the bass line rumbles along making sure you know it’s there.  Absolute stinker of a tune, thanks E.

So all in all a fantastic release here on M Ocean Records from the one and only, big, bad DJ E.  If you want your hands on this release, you’ll have to wait until the 15th February 2024 but that’s only a few days away.

Absolute D&B nut! Love any type of Drum & Bass really but Neuro is my main passion. I got into D&B back in around 2004 where I started going raving, I then discovered heavier D&B in the form of Renegade Hardware nights in London which I attended almost every one for several years. Having developed my listening style with how the music has evolved I love the freshest tunes as well as the old ones! I've been mixing for fun since around 2005 and just love playing in front of people and sharing the music with likeminded people.
