EMP003 - Tidy / Switch Back Smith is Tyrees's debut record; the first vinyl release from Emperor Recordings.
Tyrees is an up and coming, London born and bred producer and DJ with a heavy focus on breaks, bass and pads. His love for the elements of the Hardcore, Jungle and Drum n Bass genres of the early to mid '90s is principal to the formation of his style. In addition, his DJ sets and choice of samples unmistakably exhibit a passion for a wider spectrum of musical styles.
"Tidy" is a smooth and subtle journey; a gradually rising force evolving with a beautiful pad, delicate bass and synth tones, chopped breaks and mysterious vocals. It effortlessly transitions into a melodic latter half, eventually concluding with a climactic, explosive drum break. It has received particularly positive feedback and has been praised by the artists Dark Sky, Weval, Warlock, Alexander Nut, Shy One, Laurence Guy and Andy Lemay. It has also had a big impact on Emperor Recordings' Soundcloud page, with numerous plays, reposts and likes.
"Switch Back Smith" is a Jungle throwback packed with rich, thorough pads, intricately worked breaks, unique samples and deep, booming sub bass. Its high and shifting energy is in contrast to it's oddly slow but comfortable tempo, urging the listener to move along with both urgency and finesse.
