Boomkat Product Review:
Much-anticipated debut label comp from dBridge's Exit Records, featuring 22 exclusive tracks from Scuba, Indigo, Commix, Instra:mental, Distance, ASC, Synkro and many more. It's a testament to dBridge's A&R skill and vision that there are 20 individual, but similarly minded artists involved, setting the label parameters beyond D&B tempo constraints to investigate something more esoteric and rarified; Exit Records as a mood or feeling rather than a defined geometry. The highlights run deep on this one, counting Indigo's stealthy return from hibernation on the surefooted cyber-dread vibes of 'Time', dBridge's quasi-speed killer 'Decayed', Dan Harbanham's Burial arabesque 'Nu Este Roz' and the Michael Mann-esque synth vista of newcomer Croms' 'Invisible Cities'. Factor in a cobra-darting D&B riddim from Skream in 'Motorway', the silky syncopations of Commix's 'City Section' and modern D&B hardsteppers such as Loxy's 'Vertigo' and Skeptical's 'Another World' and you've got a deadly crucial, sci-fi infected vision of the future.
