Heavy Rotation: Slaine
Heavy Rotation is about five releases that you have been playing every chance you get – those EPs/singles/albums you always draw for a track from in every set, or always add in your playlists. They can be as mainstream or as underground as you like, and don’t need to focus on a certain genre.
Title: OPTIV STORIES – Evolution EP
Artist: Quadrant and Iris
Top Track: Sour Rip
Slaine: This track represents everything I love about Techy dnb and is from two of my absolute favourite producers. This project was set up to honour the sound of the mighty OPTIV who sadly isn’t with us any more.
All proceeds going to Optiv’s kids Leo & Oscar. Support the project, here!
Title: On My Own
Top Track: On My Own
Slaine: This is a beautiful track, bridging the gap between dnb, drumfunk and ambient electronica, from the always amazing ‘Futurepast zine‘ label.
Title: Absolutely True
Artist: DLR + BREAK
Top Track: Absolutely True
Slaine: This Track is just pure funk infused techy dnb, executed to perfection, I’m also a sucker for an ‘Alien’ sample.
Title: Hyperstone EP
Artist: Dawn Wall
Top Track: Fears
Title: Spectrasoul -The Tube VIP (FREE TRACK)
Top Track: The Tube VIP
Slaine: This is the definition of ‘Heavy Rotation’ for me. I’ve been playing this track on and off for 10 years now and it never fails. I loved the original but this one has slightly more edge.I still draw for this most sets. Pure class.
