Label: Samurai Music
Released: 05 Mar 2012
“Samurai Music steps into it’s fifth year with another hand picked quality stream of releases from the finest in new and established talent. NZ016 is a great example of this approach.
Pessimist is a rising name in advanced, technical, atmos-drenched dancefloor Drum and Bass with releases on Renegade Hardware, Critical and Ingredients under his belt and many more to come. On ‘Canyon’ he collaborates with new trio Arma (War, Overlook, & Mateba) for a writhing, moody roller that surges with a rumbling bassline, classic stepper drums and a riff that has often had crowds cheering with delight as it comes sliding in.
Ex pat kiwi Cern, recording artist for Renegade Hardware, Project 51, SOM Music, and of course the architect of one of our most popular back catalogue releases ‘Eastern Gates’, provides the remix here. Working tightly with the core elements, Cern increases the pressure with subtle overlays, washes of processed amens and a powerful bass interjection.”
