Rotation Deep UK
The pinnacle of atmospheric Drum and Bass has come to Rotation Deep UK with a six-track EP entitled 'A Journey Through Time'.
Okee starts us off with his wonderful track 'Equinox' featuring Parhelia & Kicbea. Kicking off with smooth pads and lovely flute samples, Okee ushers the listener in with a timeless track with a classic vibe. This first stepping-stone to the EP is the perfect aperitif to start our journey.
'Starseeds',fills our ears with that classic mid-nineties sound; pads, amen breaks - the lot! Surely a favourite for the jungle listeners of today. Waves of lush, warm frequencies from those droning pads are what make this track. 'Planet Blue' also follows along the same wavelength with a deep contrast to the first and second tracks with subtle but un-mistakenly lush synths.
'M31' begins with some magnificent sound-design in the form of lovely spacious drum patterns and percussion. Reminiscent of that analogue sound, Okee delivers a beautiful track full of emotive passion. Gotta' love that snare too!
Teaming up with Thesis, Okee brings his fifth track: 'Galactic Odyssey'. Resonant bells and mallets swirl around the mix until introducing some sweet percussion along with a firm and organic bass-line. Nostalgic vibes from the past are a certain trait of the song.
'Facing Worlds'; this track is dowsed with that creamy-smooth old school sound, it is bliss! Refreshing, pure and emotive Drum & Bass from a producer who will certainly be one to watch for the future.
This EP is like a fine wine, those who can appreciate it, will savour it.
Here at Rotation we feel drum n bass has almost gone full circle since the mid nineties.Okee brings you sounds we were all inspired by at some point in our lives with a fresh edge, these tracks don't come about often enough Okee we salute you sir.
