Matrix & InsideInfo - Quattro / Ice Beam [Metro]

Established in 1997 by Jamie Quinn (aka Matrix), Metro Recordings remains one of the most respected labels in drum and bass. As well as having a back catalogue that includes legendary acts such as DJ Fresh, Ed Rush & Optical, and Cause 4 Concern, Metro is also home to many notable collaborations between Matrix himself, with the likes of Danny J, Fierce, Sonic, and Viper Recordings boss Futurebound (as Matrix & Futurebound). Coming off the success of the highly acclaimed collaboration with Chords – ‘Hypnotize’ – Metro keeps things rolling with this slick joint release from Matrix and rising drum and bass star, InsideInfo.

One of the most unique producers in the game, InsideInfo ranks alongside some of the most respected producers in the industry. With a back catalogue  featuring releases on the most prestigious labels in DnB, such as Viper Recordings, Trust in Music, Critical, Horizons, and Ganja-Tek, InsideInfo has built up an enviable reputation for delivering the most energetic and funky drum and bass around. With ‘Honey Bee’ destroying dancefloors throughout 2011, and his new remix of Camo and Krooked’s ‘Anubis’ ready to do the same in 2012, InsideInfo now joins forces with Matrix for another dose of classic Metro-infused DnB.

‘Quattro’ – Matrix & InsideInfo
Opening with an atmosphere full of anticipation and stuttering synth stabs, this collaboration between InsideInfo and label boss Matrix, bears all the hallmarks of another epic release from Metro Recordings. Following a suspense-filled buildup, ‘Quattro’ launches into a thundering techno tinged drop bursting with jittery synths, hard percussion and a staggering filtered bassline. Reinventing the signature Metro sound for 2012, ‘Quattro’ showcases the talents of two producers who continue to produce innovative drum and bass at its very finest.

‘Ice Beam’ – InsideInfo
‘Ice Beam’ sees InsideInfo go it alone to deliver a track designed specifically for the DJ. Featuring an incessant, churning bass, rattling percussion and moaning synths, ‘Ice Beam’ has an unmistakable sense of urgency and movement synonymous with the producer responsible for tunes such as ‘Honey Bee’, ‘Metrognome’, and ‘Awkward’. A mixture of flawless production, vintage funk and unadulterated energy, ‘Ice Beam’ evokes memories of classic Ram Trilogy with an adrenaline-fueled twist.
