Emperor - Critical NYE Promo Mix


Gerwin & Nuage are one of Europe’s most prolific drum & bass collaborators and “Lying Portraits” sees them team up with lyrical craftsman 2Shy to bring some beauty to the genre. Deep but never monotonous, the tune glides through jazz influences it switches easily between a deep, emotive bass-driven track and a smooth, attention-grabbing stepper.

The flip side “Soul Truth” by Gerwin takes things into melodic textures, creating a track filled with multi-layered beauty. A punchy 808 bass winds its way underneath, bringing warm depths to carefully spacious percussion and interesting melodic snippets. The downside here, of course, is that it all ends way too soon.
