In the Bag: Artificial Intelligence highlight their favourite D&B cuts of 2020 so far
Since 2002, Zula Warner and Glenn Herweijer – the liquid funk pioneers better known as Artificial Intelligence – have been pushing their unmistakable sound via drum & bass powerhouses like V Recordings, Metalheadz, Shogun Audio, and their own label, Integral. With a consistent catalogue that spans multiple decades, they sit among other heroes of the scene like Total Science or Zero T – and their energetic, organic sound is not too dissimilar. The London duo’s output can adapt to the profile of being soulful, dark, or a hybrid. They’re also experts in the use of vocals, whether it’s featuring favourites like Steo and DRS, or slicing up anonymous bits to create a more cryptic vibe. Typically the pair’s DJ sets display their love of liquid drum & bass in rolling style, but they’re also known for covering the darker side too. Next Friday the pair are back at FABRICLIVE for 20 years of Aerosoul vs. Junglist Movement, and ahead of joining us, they picked out six rollers to show where drum & bass is at right now.
Air.K & Cephei – Broken [Integral]Up-and-coming Austrian duo Air.K & Cephei are hitting all the right buttons for us with their recent productions, which are packed with euphoric funk and energy for the dancefloor. This one is dropping on an Integral Records compilation at the end of the month. Ones to look out for in 2020.
Monrroe – Faint Intention [Shogun Audio]We’ve had our eye on this Bristol-based talent over the last year, signing a debut collaboration with Edlan to Integral Records. Faint Intentions, taken from his debut EP on Shogun Audio, brings together everything we love about his productions – techno-inspired vibes underpinned with a smooth, intricate, soulful palette.
Redeyes – Next To You [The North Quarter]This Toulouse wonderkid emerged at a similar time to us and has been an important part of the soulful genre’s journey to what it is today. Next To You is a personal fave and takes us right back to the Logical Progression and early Swerve vibes that we grew up on.
Grey Code – Dante feat. Becca Jane Grey [Metalheadz]The lead track from Grey Code’s latest EP on Metalheadz. A deadly, epic musical journey updating the classic signature sounds of the movement to today’s genre.
Satl – Self Reflection [The North Quarter]One of the brightest talents from recent years whom we have been working closely with. This dubby techno roller taken from his superb debut EP on The North Quarter has been a staple part of our sets over the last year.
Calibre – Planet Hearth [Signature]The master at work. The title track from his recent eclectic project which has been on repeat. This one pulls all the deepest emotional strings. Words can’t express.
