The four-track project opens with its titular offering “Get Them”, which finds ethereal pads quickly giving way to an infectious rap topline and a swelling drop, garnished with abrasive basslines and atmospheric, delay-soaked percussion. Dominated by sonorous sub bass and skippy rhymes, the track marks a new direction for the talented DJ and producer, serving as one of his heaviest cuts to date. Next up, “Jungle Spirit” – as its title suggests – channels old-school junglist influences. Invigorating, patois-tinged vocals, sampled from Ragga Twins member Deman Rockers, sit atop brassy impacts, choppy breaks and distorted basslines to make for a rugged, rave-ready number.
On “All Around Me”, Drumcatcher is joined by Lyon’s Horde for their second collaboration following last year’s Data Transmission-approved link-up “Taste Maker”. Opening with a soulful, poppy vocal, the song builds up to minimalist, rolling climaxes, its hearty, resonant basslines offset by skittering percussion. Seeing off the project in style is “Feel It”, a funky creation centred around gravelly, modulated basslines and decorated with luscious guitar licks and flourishes of jazzy brass. Testament to Drumcatcher’s versatility, this showcases yet another of his musical capabilities, reaffirming his status as one of drum and bass’s most innovative all-rounders today.
