We at Subtle Audio are pleased to announce our first new vinyl releases of 2012 by a newcomer called NCQL and a Subtle Audio stalwart called dgoHn.
Not only that, we're also very excited to finally get a new sub-label project up and running - 'Bustle Beats'.
This project is a little late in getting off the ground, but we like to take care with everything we do when releasing music is concerned and (as you're about to see) we took the time to get the artwork exactly as we wanted it... hopefully you'll agree that it was worth the wait !
Bustle Beats is a tribute to an era within the history of D&B / Jungle that I still buzz about even now.
It will be even more oldskool-centric than Subtle Audio has been over the years and will have a bit of a rougher edge to the sounds in general.
Though it will be very influenced by the old days you will certainly be able to hear how the new generation of producers have put their own stamp on the Jungle / Breakbeat style.
The Bustle Beats series will be pressed on 10" and will feature a cartoon series penned by Louisa Donnelly which will run over the lifetime of the label. See below for parts 1 & 2 of a story featuring Nebula, Equinox, LXC & Senses, an evil dictator, a band of Jungle loving aliens and other random doodled creations
... so let's get to the nitty-gritty !
All 4 vinyls (300 pressings only per release) as well as limited edition Subtle Audio Sweatshirts and Bustle Beats T-Shirts are available now from - http://www.subtleaudiorecordings.com/shop
Orders will be shipping from Monday February 20th, which means you'll be getting the new beats ahead of the general release through ST Holdings. Bustle Beats 002 for example won't be released till early April.
