Upcoming Drum and Bass DJ and Producer Exposure is set to explode onto the scene this May with his debut release, Delicate Lives / Sacrifice. The track will be released on his Bristol-based label A R.
A R launched last October with a sell out show at the Coroner’s Court and Lakota as part of Tremor Sound System’s fourth birthday bash. The label spans the entire Drum and Bass and Jungle spectrum and provides a platform for label boss Exposure and a host of other new and fresh talent.
The A-side track, Delicate Lives, features the super smooth, soulful vocals of London-based singer songwriter Sula Mae. With a background in folk, Sula’s voice floats effortlessly amongst crisp beats and soothing Rhodes piano chords while the rolling drums and deep twisting bass drive a dancefloor orientated groove.
The B-side track, Sacrifice, exhibits Exposure’s love for harder hitting Drum and Bass. The atmosphere’s set from the off with an epic intro sample, followed up by hard-hitting, punchy drums. Snippets of vocals are layered throughout to give a real funk and swing to the rhythm, while the relentless bass and haunting pads keep the vibe up front and moody.
Exposure says: “I’m really excited about this release. Since launching the label last October I’ve been putting in some serious hours in the studio and Delicate Lives / Sacrifice is the first of many tunes to represent what we’re all about. We’re working with some incredibly talented producers and I can’t wait to showcase their work.”
Working with some of the freshest upcoming talent, as well as long established players in the scene, 2016 looks set be an exciting year for A R.
