Tempo Records brings us this special release by Ink & Gremlinz, and is proudly composed of just three joints. It is what has been simply summarised as “sinister and raw Drum & bass” by t3mpo.com.
This team-up between the two icons namely; Canadian-based producer/DJ, Gremlinz and; the UK’s DJ Ink, comes with some seriously diabolic tuneage that influences the mood. The title song is illuminated by a brief, gloomy intro of a speech sample then, drops to a renowned Jungle break. The pad of the song, accentuates scenery like that of breaking dawn.
In the middle of it all, stands ‘Triton’ whereby Ahmad (Acid Lab) is called in to put his touch of darkness in the mix and; ‘Dark Age’ blocks out the sunlight for the ending with an intriguing or rather, exciting drum track. The drums are followed by sounds lurking from the shadowy recesses of the tune; what a nice way to turn off The Light. With all said, this is pure stuff in its own right; also, bear in mind that, the release is particularly, a limited 12” clear pressed vinyl including; a cool ass poster to grace your wall thus, making it an item for the steadfast collectors.
In a nutshell; if you dig dark, smooth (whilst still raw), timeless Drum & Bass then, this is definitely for you no questions asked, and not much explanation needed. When respected legends come together, this is the expected outcome, enough is said.
