Total Science See Your Face EP Debut EP from bass legends Total Science. The summer sunshine opening title track ‘See Your Face’ is a sparkling, laid back groove featuring their longtime collaborator Riya who drops her typically lush vocals over some crisp TS breaks and bass. ‘Hush Ya Mouth’ is the exact polar opposite opening with harsh, abrasive breaks and sinister loops before a drop into a heinous drum & bass workout that’ll have you reaching for the rafters.Moving on and ‘Just Want You’ keeps things grizzly. Retaining a very old-skool vibe the ‘just want you’ vocal paves the way as we fall smack into a full-on marching track with proper drums and a twisted b-line that wraps around your ears and doesn’t let go. The final track ‘Suspicious’ sees Total Science stepping out of the D&B zone altogether for a super cool piece of darkening garage with Riya supplying the vocals once more. With this original mix coming on the digital package only, Alix Perez delivers the D&B remix to complete the vinyl release keeping things much in the same vein as the title track to soothe the soul and round off the whole for an EP of true excellence not to be missed.

Total Science Redlines Total Science Feat. Riya drop 'Redlines' backed with 'Skinz' As we head into the warmer months camp Critical brings a true sunshine release from one of D&B’s tour de force production duos, Total Science. The original jungle dons push all the right buttons here as they team up with Riya for a sumptuous vocal excursion like no other. ‘Redlines’ has already been given the thumbs up by the likes of Mistajam and Ras Kwame on BBC Radio 1/1xtra and it’s not hard to see why. A solid locked groove rolls from the start on this one with a polished break and beautiful melancholic piano hook that draw you in before the real treat begins; when Riya’s gorgeous vocal drops in your heart will melt. Effortless audio bliss for all the lovers out there. Things then toughen up 10-fold on the flip as the Total Science party boys drop ‘Skinz’, a crisp and dry piece of Bristol-esque D&B with a thugged-out b-line that’s had clubs shaking all over for the past six months.
