Over the years at The 3000 Network we have had the pleasure of working with such an incredibly wide range of producers, covering so many different areas of underground dance music as we do so. Today, we are going to be heading over to one of the UK’s spiritual homes of underground dance music as the Bristol flag looms into view. The city has always been known as an innovative place, sitting as one of the UK’s leading hot spots for new sounds and futuristic creation across all genre of music to tell you the truth.
For today’s outing however, we are heading to two different cities as we join forces with our Mancunian allies at Manuka HQ to deliver an exclusive premiere from this brand new release. They welcome Spektralsound, a Bristol-based duo who have been making serious waves over the past few months with their dungeon-esc take on bass music. It’s safe to say their sound has a typically Bristolian twist to say the least, with a real focus on the darker, more chilling side. When we asked Manuka co-founder: Hypho how he first came across them he said: “I came across these guys through their release on Keysound“, a label which also makes perfect sense for the sounds these guys are looking to build.
Although the EP is made up of four outstanding creations, we are really excited to be bringing you the premiere that we are as we jump into the VIP mix of ‘Metal Tears’. The original track is as swampy as they come, but this VIP sends the track into a completely different stratosphere, focussing more on the subtle, pulsating subs below and one of the moodiest atmospheres we’ve taken in on a premiere so far this year. The whole project is written on a similar vibe and it’s definitely one we wholeheartedly reccomend. We have also been assured by Hypho that you can also be sure to expect a bag more releases from the Spektrlsound partnership on Manuka in the near future.
