Vinyl Retention: Samurai Music

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Every Wednesday, Sardi lets us know what’s tickling his eardrums in the world of dance music…

It’s hard to believe 5 years have passed since NZ based label Samurai Music dropped their first release. It would be nice to say ‘they’ve come a long way from their humble beginning’ but the truth is, they were on point and featuring some of the most revered names in the D&B scene right from the get go.

In that short space of time, they’ve managed to rack up a ridiculous amount of great releases by scene heavyweights, but also expose and nurture a slew of amazing new talent. Their new LP Way Of The Samurai 2: Code Of Honour keeps the same ideals and brings us 22 brand new, cutting edge tracks.

On a whole, the album is on a somewhat moodier and minimal tip, but you’ll also find some lovely liquid gems steppy dance floor fillers interspersed amongst a variety of intricate-experimental cuts.

Featuring tracks from Marcus Intalex, Tokyo Prose, Loxy & Resound, Nymfo, ASC & so many more, Way Of The Samurai 2 does an amazing job of giving you a glimpse of where D&B is currently at and where it’s heading.

If you like what you hear, be sure to tune in to RTRFM’s Full Frequency between 3pm and 5pm, as Sardi and Dart explore the world of Drum and Bass and beyond.
