The world of Sovereign's music is a deep, twisted, experimental one, where he is able to explore all sides of his personality. On LOCDIOG026, we get treated to his debut release on the ever-reliable Lockdown Recordings, the home to artists as diverse as Cybin, Trex, Locksem, Jaybee, Medics and Superior Selectionz.
The Bristol sound runs deep through what Sovereign is about, and what better label to host his music than the South West's own Lockdown. Always looking out for the latest fresh sounds, the label continues to deliver with tunes like Sovereign's Dustmite and Blique.
Dustmite resounds with edgy vibes, rolling beats and a deep sense of purpose and direction. Rising out of the intro come clicking drums, epic bass fields and a feel for something different. Straddling different styles and genres of drum & bass music, it's obvious that the producer isn't afraid of doing something different. There are many layers to Dustmite, some not o bvious on first listen, to stick it on the reload and check it out again. You'll notice the subtle touches of percussion and the various wanderings of the bassline, as things progress in a new and exciting way.
Blique further blurs the boundaries between electronica, d&b, garage and more. With a blissful, synth-led intro, the tune builds with subtle beats and luxurious effects, creating serenity and energy in equal measure. Brief diversions into bass are weighed with an atmosphere of minimalism and simplicity.
Sovereign is the kind of producer you're going to hear a lot of, and after success on Groove Yard Collective, this single on Lockdown Recordings is a logical step for the musician, and tracks like Blique are going to catch a lot of attention with it's moonlight essence and accessibility. Seriously good music for the new generation. Make sure you catch LOCDIG026 now.
