S.P.Y talks about some of the tracks from his new album “Back To Basics Chapter One”

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

After the huge impact of his debut LP “What The Future Holds” in 2012, S.P.Y goes “Back To Basics” and takes us deeper, darker and further underground with his new LP. We spoke to him to find out a little bit more about the inspiration behind some of the tracks on the album.

Cold Harsh Air

Cold Harsh Air is a collaboration with Total Science and Grimm. We got inspired to write this track because it was really cold in London at the time and we wanted to do something that was musical but not necessarily a summer track. We combined a light, musical melody with the deep rolling baseline to give the track depth, then passed it over to Grimm in Canada to add the vocals.

Brooklyn Dub

I wrote the first idea for this track whilst in Brooklyn, New York in 2012 and the track actually started with a beat inspired by a mix of breakdance and Afrika Bambaataa. I rediscovered the track on a hard drive late last year and redeveloped it into a drum and bass track, whilst still keeping the break style. I really enjoy playing this track on tour to mix up my sets and give the crowd something different.

Dusty Fingers

I wrote this track after a long day of getting my fingers dusty crate digging in a record shop in North London. After I got home I listened to some of the records and began to get really inspired. For the edge that I wanted to give to the track the only vocalist that came to mind was Dianne, her voice is beautiful yet deep at the same time. As I’ve done for the whole album, I’ve tried to keep all of the tracks with an oldskool late 90′s vibe.

All these tracks are available for free when you pre-order S.P.Y’s album from iTunes. Alternatively, all pre-orders of the LP and CD from the Hospital Shop come signed by the man himself!

Pursuing a rapid ascension to D&B’s top table since signing to Hospital Records Fred V & Grafix have quickly become one of the most talked about acts in the scene. Having remixed top 10 hits for Rudimental and Subfocus, and released a string of singles and tracks on Hospital, they now present their debut long player. An ambitious and consummate development of the sound they have become know for, built on a solid foundation of d&b beats, the album combines their love for live music, weighty sub bass and creative collaborations with newschool vocalists and producers. With the support of dance music luminaries Subfocus and Netsky, as well as backing from Radio one’s Zane Lowe, Annie Mac and Mistajam, Fred V & Grafix are well on the way to crossover success.

Since the latter half of the last decade, Alex Melia aka Reso has been blending heightened technological futurism with dancefloor prowess to create a densely cinematic musical universe. ‘Tangram’ Reso’s much anticipated debut album was released in Nov 2012 and received heavy support from Mixmag (Album of the month), XLR8R, The Guardian, FACT, RA, NME, as well as other key musical luminaries such as Liam Howlett, Skrillex, Skream & Benga, DJ Food, Salva, Rusko and more.
