Cities like Bergamo and Berlin are well known for their part in building the foundations of Europe’s creative scene, priding themselves on the drum & bass explosion which took homage throughout its renowned dance music spaces. And they have a great understanding of what records command these dancefloors. After promoting drum & bass events for over a decade, Delta9 Recordings was a logical progression from their events imprint, centralising their sounds on the darker, more minimalistic styles which pay homage to the label’s roots. With Delta9 Recordings having its foundations in both cities, they decided to open a sister label focused on the promotion of the deeper Drum&Bass vibes and promosing newcomers!
From the depths of United Kingdon, Retrakt has homed in on his deep, nominal sonics for this next EP on DLT9. ‘Nova’ takes you through the motions which have made Retrakt such an imperative name amongst the underground newcomers, with his judiciously created sequences becoming staples across their sets. ‘Madman’ features foreboding bass shots which lead directly into manically fluctuating drum patterns. If this is the first time you’ve been introduced to Retrakt’s craft, it’ll be a baptism into fire, but one signposted by diligently manufactured music.
This EP set a new begin for Delta9 Recordings' sister label DLT9, which has already planned few other releases for the next months!
