Alibi & Disaszt – I Got You & Double Trouble

Alibi & Disaszt - I Got You & Double Trouble


Alibi & Disaszt combine their considerable talents for 2 new tracks on the seminal V Recordings imprint.

‘I Got You’ & ‘Double Trouble’ perfectly contrast and compliment each other. The former being a vocal track full of power chords and pathos to get you in an elated and elevated mood. The latter is for those who like to dance with abandon, a haunting Skynet like composition of futuristic sci fi keys and crunching basslines.  In summary, here is two tracks of technical DnB mastery and musical superiority that carry the hallmarks of V Recordings’ legacy.

Command Strange – Circles EP

Command Strange - Circles EP

Starting with the swirling summer soul of ‘In Circles’, Command Strange continue to change the paradigm with the ‘Circles EP’ on V Recordings

‘Face 2 Face’ is a menacing throwback to the era of classics like ‘Wormhole’ & ‘Kilimanjaro’, a startling blend of uplifting keys and dark bass. ‘Shiva’ spells out more future retro slammin’ DnB business while ‘This Night’ sees us to the end with a serving of warm liquid junglism.
