TITLE: Wonder Where / ARTIST: D Bridge & Instra:mental / LABEL: NonPlus+ / RELEASE DATE: July 2009 / CAT NO: NONPLUS 001
1. Wonder Where – dBridge
2. No Future – Instra:mental
After arriving back on the scene in 2006, Instra:mental have fast gained a reputation for re-sharpening the cutting edge approach to making music. Taking influence from their love of electronica and incorporating it into a fresh and unorthodox style, they have managed to create a distinctive and inspiring sound. In 2009 they have decided to start their own label in order to give them a focused outlet for their music, as well as the music of other artists who they feel are on the same path. Quality, longevity, freedom of expression and non conformity are some of the ideologies behind their new label, Nonplus+ Records.
For their first release they have chosen two tracks:
The A side – “Wonder Where” by dBridge – is a fine example of how the label means to continue. dBridge is hot off the back of his debut solo album “The Gemini Principle” in which he first gave us glimpses of a talent which he shares with his brother Steve Spacek as a vocalist. Since then he has been busy layign the foundations of his own respected imprint Exit Records. If his voice sounds familiar, you may heard the track “These Words” from Martyn’s highly regarded debut album “Great Lengths” on which he featured. “Wonder Where” is regularly being played in the sets of DJs from many genres: from drum n bass DJ’s such as Marcus Intalex, to soulful house DJ’s like Benji B, and dubstep pioneer DJ Skream regularly finishes his sets with it. Dubstep legend Burial has also seen fit to include it in his upcoming DJ Kicks mix. This track is fast becoming an anthem among many different genres and is sure to be featured in many a DJ’s sets for many years to come.
For the B-side, Instra:mental have chosen their own track “No Future“. Already licensed to the highly acclaimed Commix Fabriclive.44 mix, this track (and most of their music) manages to resurrect the ghost of early electronic music with the essence of artists such as Model 500 and the legendary Detroit techno movement of the 80s and early 90s. Using original hardware drum machines and synthesizers to create the analogue warmth and groove which was synonymous of those times, they bring elements back to the music which have been somewhat lacking in recent years and laced it with all the benefits of modern music making advancements. This track will be loved and cherished by those who appreciate good music and will play just as well in the comfort of your own home as it would in a packed out dancefloor.
