Decoder and Substance are back. You'd be hard pressed to come up with a production team with as diverse a CV as these two. Part of the hugely influential mid-nineties Bristol scene, between them they've run labels, promoted events, run a record shop and produced a slew of cutting edge underground D&B. And that's before we even get into what they've achieved with their worldwide chart-conquering band Kosheen. Now, for the first time in over a decade, it's time for them to revisit their drum and bass roots. Red rolls in with a drum loop straight from the old skool, balanced with Susie Ledge's sparkling vocals. Then there's a hint of danger as bass tones rear their head, and the one and only Jakes steps up to the mic to signal the launch of a full-scale junglist assault. Then Document One get their hands on the stems, and show how they do things. They open up with a pristine electro-tinged combination of percussive arpeggios and reprocessed snippets of Ms Ledge's vocals to create a whole new vibe, adding the funk that Document One like to bring to the party. Tight drum programming, syncopated bass and builds reinforced with Jakes bars mean that this mix is aimed directly at the dancefloor. Finally, LA's in the house as Kronology bring their style to bear on Red too. The track keeps building, as layers of percussion raise the energy level. Adding in the extra ingredient of Susie's vocals and modulating pads give an extra twist of euphoria to proceedings. Red combines the dark rave elements of classic Decoder and Substance tunes with the sultry soul that made Kosheen a household name across the globe. Their road-hardened experience combined with two crews from the new generation on remix duties, means that this release is due for some serious rotation.
