Flying the flag for the US drum & bass scene, Winslow returns with his second standalone release on south-London imprint Hospital Records. He was praised as 2021’s ‘one to watch’ after dropping previous releases on Soulvent, Pilot Records and Goldfat. Alongside his soulful debut ‘Sandalwood Nights’ EP, which showcased Winslow’s refreshing take on drum & bass and his talent as a multi-instrumentalist.
Drum & bass meets hip hop on the EP title track ‘Breaking News’. Winslow crafts a feel-good liquid pacer with crispy snares, dinging bells and a mighty drop. Winslow’s flawless production ties in effortlessly with the rhymes and tales from Brooklyn born MC, T.R.A.C who is no stranger to delivering on D+B anthems.
‘Mad In Tents’ sees Winslow explore heavier and darker realms of drum & bass. Sombre chords, flirtatious synth work and punchy drum kicks create an intense hypnotising atmosphere that will transcend listeners into another world.
The final track, ‘Supermarket 64’ further affirms Winslow’s genre-bending abilities. The track begins with acoustic drum work and luscious piano chords that sets the scene for a jazzy liquid number. However, Winslow plays in darker territories again switching to mangled basslines and heavy wobbles, this will be a delight for minimal drum & bass lovers.
Winslow’s immaculate catalogue and signature flair have seen him rack up support from the likes of Nu:Tone, London Elektricity, Mitekiss, Charlie Tee and UKF. Outside of the studio, Winslow stays booked and busy as a music teacher, YouTube content creator and music composer. On his YouTube channel, he delves into music production, his influences and musical technique. Winslow continues to up the levels…stay tuned for what he has in store for 2022.
