Various | The Modernists 2



























Click -> here to listen to all tunes of this superb compilation.
"The CD album is strictly limited to 100 hand finished copies, so certainly something for the collectors. Tony Justice’s MJazz label has come good with the second instalment on it’s limited CD series. “The Modernists 2” brings together an international selection of new skool artists laced together with techno and electronic influences… The project boasts several producers who’s names are practically buzz words in contemporary deep drum & bass. “Reklas” by Berlin’s Felix K is a personal favorite of ours, incorporating a relentless white noise-esque snare with deep sub bass and tense stabs. Also deserving a special metion is relative newcomer Dominick Ridgeway’s “My Reflection”, minimal by definition, subtle and cinematic by character. Justice & Metro’s “Sounds Like Something” takes the listener firmly away from the dancefloor and straight into the future dystopia of a city landscape that would be at home in Bladerunner, stripping away the beats and focussing on some seriously synthed out keys and pads."

"Justice's Modern Urban Jazz imprint presents the 2nd installment of ltd compilations, featuring 12 leftfield D&B cut from Felix K, Diamond Eye, Cuelock, Sight Unseen and more. Highlights come from Felix K on muted Berlin styles of 'Reklas', the deeply atmospheric minimalism of Sight Unseens 'Stalkers Theme', and Marginal's Monolake-esque 'The Mech Issues' but fans of next level D&B will find much more to get excited about. Packaging is lovely too: hand-sprayed card jacket with printed fabric inner and sticker."
