Aquasky ‘Shadow Era’ EP – Part One + Part Two
” Three men, eight albums, five hundred tracks, four labels, numerous aliases, across a myriad of genres ” and you have, Aquasky.
The Bournemouth trio have been there, done it and got the t-shirt when it comes to the world of music and this year sees, Brent Newitt, Dave Wallace and Kieron Bailey, celebrate twenty years in the game. Now when such celebrations come along like this you know there will come some special releases of music and this just happens to be the case here.
‘ Shadow Era ‘ is a two part EP series where the guys have gone right back, to the 90’s, when they were signed to the seminal label, Moving Shadow. As many of us know, the 90’s sure did give us some incredible electronic music and these EP’s are here to back that up. Five Drum n Bass tracks on each, that around the time would have easily been logged in the ‘ intelligent ‘ D n B category and the special twist to these releases is that some of the tracks have never been heard! Part one features remixes of ‘ Who Are You ‘ by, Omni Trio and ‘ Crusoe ‘ by, Art Of Noise along with three originals that have been remastered. Part two sees another five tracks with remixes of, Force Of Nature, Laceny and Sneaker Pimps. Dj Krust remixes ‘ Dezires ‘ by, Aquasky and the final track is from the guys themselves. The tracks off both EP’s feature on two action packed albums packed with more remixes and remastered tracks from the guys themselves.
What we have here is some of the finest Drum n Bass you’ve yet to hear and some that you will listen to and love forever!
