Document One Document One Document One are very proud to unveil their debut self titled album. Over the years, Joe and Matt have had an illustrious production career dabbling in all flavours of underground dance music. Not deviating from D&B tempo, this album goes back to where they started while showcasing how far they’ve come. "We’ve spent close to a decade working together as Document One within UK bass music. We’ve toured over 30 countries across 4 continents, we’ve watched so many of the musicians we admire perform and we’ve been exposed to so much culture along the way too. This album is a cross-section of who we are as musicians, as people and most importantly a duo.” Shogun Audio LP
Spectrasoul The Mistress The new full-lenght from Birmingham duo Spectrasoul! The Mistress is a pleasingly varied set, rooted in their deeper, more melodious take on D&B, but blessed with a range of other influences. "Hot Head, Rock Bed", for example, sounds like vintage James Blake, while "More To Give" - featuring the soulful tones of vocalist Tamara - expertly blends half-step rhythms with luscious modern soul. They even go experimental and gnarly on the frankly quite odd "Kutchi". For all the twists and turns, they've not forgotten their roots, and The Mistress also contains a number of straight-up D&B rollers that should appease DJs and fans alike. Shogun Audio CD | LP
Spectrasoul Shelter The second single to land ahead of Spectrasoul's highly-anticipated sophomore set The Mistress, "Shelter" emanates the duo's most sensitive, touching sides. Leaning heavily on a woozy half beat, full focus on placed on Lily's yearning, heart-torn vocals. D&B doesn't get any more emotional than this. Remix-wise Two Inch Punch lays down a darker, barbed beats twist with a treacle-thick slo-mo stomp while Spectrasoul themselves jump on the VIP with a 170 refix that's tailored for prime time floor flattening. The full package. Shogun Audio 12"
Spectrasoul Always Their first single in two years, Spectrasoul return with the first tracks from their highly anticipated second album. "Always" is a sure-fire stunner thanks to its expert vocal sample use (both the lead and the backing chants) that's laid down over wonderfully tight rolling breaks and lush instrumentation. "I Don't Mind" reminds us of the duo's darker side as a soulful vocal cries out over a gritty, droning, distorted bassline that jitters and shakes rudely on the fills. Something tells us this is the start of a whole wealth of exceptional material from the south coast duo. Shogun Audio 12"
Icicle Entropy Three years on from his debut album Under The Ice, Dutchman Icicle commits another long player to the Shogun Audio cause in the shape of Entropy. Bass weight meets sound design on this ambitious 16 track set (spread across 2 slabs of vinyl here) as Jeroen Snik offers a compelling argument for his personal development since Under The Ice. What sets Entropy apart from most D&B long players at the moment is Snik's willingness to weave different stylistic elements into his productions with genuinely thrilling results. See the relentless, grime flecked nastiness of "Isolation" and the downbeat "Superimposed" for evidence, though there is still plenty of science fiction indebted bass futurism to satisfy the heads Shogun Audio CD | LP
