Out now on newly-minted dance music label Rhythm & Chaos Records, L.A. bass enthusiast and producer/DJ SPL (Sam Pool) just dropped two filthy tracks, "Back Again"and "Bristol Transmission". The double bass-heavy release debuted yesterday on Your EDM, and is now available on Beatport.
The new release embodies the old versus new, showcasing both a new musical direction for SPL as well as a revisitation to Sam's sonic roots. The first of the two tracks, “Back Again,” engages you with SPL's grimy side, delivering an echoing introduction leading to a gritty bass-soaked breakdown for a surefire dancefloor stormer. The following banger,“Bristol Transmission”, is a nod to SPL's origins of classic DnB. Here Sam lays out a haunting introduction that is quickly overshadowed by heavy reese-style mids and bass.
SPL has a thorough music background from his depth musical education that ranges from music theory, engineering and piano to drums. He has released both D&B and bass music on respected labels Rottun Records, Firepower, Evol Intent, and SMOG. He has also been remixed by notable artists Bro Safari, UZ, Big Gigantic, and The Panacea. SPL's previous "Balearic Bass" EP gained upmost respect in the UK from massive D&B acts including Skream, Benga, and the esteemed bass music brand UKF.
