Maduk & Nymfo – Crossroads / Ordinary Ways [Grid Recordings]
Posted by Adam on 29th March 2013
After the release of the classy Blame / Warm Winters from the phenomenal Hybrid Minds, Allsorts continue to bring the quality Drum and Bass with another slick release, this time from Maduk & Nymfo.
After only beginning to produce in 2011, Maduk has already had releases on the likes of Liquicity, Fokuz and the mighty Hospital Recordings. After 2012 saw him clock over 2 million plays on Youtube for his track ‘Ghost Assassin (feat. Veela)’ as well as winning the official Viper Recordings Beatport remix contest for Matrix & Futurebound’s ‘All I Know’, Maduk is set for an even bigger 2013. Alongside him is Nymfo, one of the most cutting edge producers on the scene. Known for his precise, gritty style Nymfo has earned releases on some of Drum and Bass most enduring labels including Commercial Suicide, Samurai Music, Critical Recordings and Goldie’s legendary Metalheadz. Now the two varied producers join forces for two cuts of precise, soulful classic Drum and Bass on Allsorts.
Crossroads: A progressive rolling Drum and Bass track, ‘Crossroads’ is a blend of rich vocal snippets and crystal clear synths. Chugging forward with intricate percussion, a warm bassline and subtle synth work, ‘Crossroads’ has soul and precision in equal measure.
Ordinary Ways: The flipside sees both producers combine their unique styles to once again form another classy slice of Drum and Bass. Combining distinctive vocals with rolling drums and bags of atmosphere, ‘Ordinary Ways’ packs in attitude with original percussion, and the result is another sick joint effort.
