After a good few debuts in 2006 from Hospital it was time to let one of original fast soul soldiers show you how it's done. Nu:Tone comes with a couple of textbook deliveries on this 12” which are sure to keep you up all night.
'The Things That Lovers Do' is drum+bass from a finer time. Solid and stylish this is a proper gentleman of a tune - sure to sweep you off your feet. Mellow big band horns, tight percussion and civilized vocals, all bound together by a bassline rolled tighter than a Cuban cigar. This is proper business for drum+bass' finer classes to enjoy - get your hands on it before it reaches the masses!
In contrast, Missing Link on the flip should be painted yellow and black. A veritable hornet of a tune, with a rumbling buzz and a massive dance floor sting. A tasty woodwind intro sets you at ease before the alarms go off and you realize the room is on fire! Sub bass ahoy! As the dancefloor ignites under the weight of this Bristolian banger. The vibe harks back to his massive remix of Strictly Social, soulful wobble with a touch of class.
