1) The North Quarter All Stars - Never

The long-awaited TNQ All Stars ‘Balboa Square’ album is dropping this month and it’s chock full of lush collaborations between labelmates – with some unexpected results. “Never” combines epic cinematic spaghetti western strings with lashing, unique and swingy drums, Detroit techno pads, wobbly bass, reverse guitars and Steo’s inimitable soul vocals. Proud to have been involved in this great project – one for the ages!

2. Submorphics - Cinerama

Not gonna reveal too much about this one — but deeply proud of the emotional journey this takes the listener on.

3. Note ft. aya dia - Vespertine

This will go down as one of the anthems of 2023 from 2 of Manchester’s finest. Detailed production, great chords and a standout vocal from up and comer aya dia. “I can hear the echo in the fire” – goosebumps!

4. Azotix - Without You

When I was in Romania last month, a young producer chatted me up and sent me a folder of forthcoming and unsigned tunes. This one stood out to me with it’s Halogenix-esque production – but with an old skool jungle touch and amazing bassline.

5. Satl feat. Brandy Haze - Today

Anthemic future soul from Poland’s finest Satl and LA’s Brandy Haze. Wonky chords and a melodically-strong modern R&B flex from Brandy make this tune one of the great moments of 2023 and an instant classic.

Submorphics has undoubtedly left an indelible mark on the world of Drum N Bass with his exceptional talent and unique approach to music.
