A triple-vinyl pack, Elemnts continues the partnership between the two purveyors of deep drum & bass.
The Elemnts LP firms up a connection between a pair of producers who each favor a deep, dubby sound—one that's heavy on drum & bass while incorporating techno and ambient elements. Felix K, a Berlin fixture, has called on the low-key, London-based DB1 for a handful of contributions to his Hidden Hawaii label group in recent years, including 2015's Ohne Titel 12-inch. The two also linked up last spring for an EP called Transitions, before revealing their first release as Elemnt, Water, in the fall.
A triple-vinyl pack with 13 total tracks, Elemnts brings together material from three Elemnt 12-inches, Square, Octagon and Circle Of Light, each of which seems to be getting its own limited issue. A remix (on Circle Of Light) comes from Levl. There's no release date yet, but some track samples have surfaced on the Hidden Hawaii SoundCloud page, and "Square 1" has been shared on YouTube.
The Elemnt project is the latest in a run of recent collaborations for Felix K, who featured in our Machine Love interview series last year. He's also put out records alongside Ena, BassDee and Drumkid over the past 12 months or so.
