When I heard Showreel Pt 1 & 2 for the first time, it made a huge impression on me. Simply an amazing combination of sounds that create ambient and at the same time very energetic music... Just no words : )
Favorite track: Showreel Pt2.
Absolute killer of harmonic warped ambient breakbeat techno bliss. Almost sends me diving into the internet to grab more like it, knowing damn well its pretty unique. Get.
Favorite track: Broken Glass Arch.
R&S proudly presents brand new signing Felix Manuel AKA Djrum.
Djrum is a perennially acclaimed underground artist, since his first release in 2010 who’s quietly built a list of fans that reads like a who’s who of contemporary dance music.
As an artist, Djrum has formed a reputation for his unique fusion of a range of genres ranging from jazz, hip hop and dubstep to ambient and techno. His music swells with oceanic bass laded beats, cavernous atmospherics and deeply emotive melodies. An accomplished DJ his compositional approach feels like a natural collage of his influences which has seen him release for the likes of the Zenker Brothers Ilian Tape imprint as well as the influential 2nd Drop label, plus remixes for Ninja Tune and Domino.
Felix now steps up to the plate at R&S with one of his most visionary releases to date. Deeply meditative melodies twist and turn through stuttering rhythms and pulsing low bass, hypnotic pads and woozy atmospherics. Manuel’s music somehow manages to retains the urgency and dynamic pressure of the dance floor with the intimacy and elegant detailing of the best headphone music.
A natural fit for R&S, there is a full length Djrum album in the pipeline in 2018 - looks like it’s going to be an exciting year ahead.

This is such a brilliant album. It’s beautifully sequenced and the progression from ambient early tracks to rolling drum and bass is a joy. Any number of songs could be a favourite, but it really rewards listening the whole way through. topickering

This is rather difficult to describe. It's pretty minimalist with a strong focus on the drumming patterns, yet these are rather gentle and not aggressive. The more the listener progress through the tracks, some melodies start to come in smoothing a bit the edges. I'd recommend listening from beginning to end in one go to get the full scope of this EP.
