As we move into 2016, the first release of the year debuts the unique sounds of Norwegian DJ/Producer ‘Sub Drifter’. We are proud to introduce the ‘Unclassified EP’, marking the 8th release on Instigate Recordings to date.
Sub Drifter - Unclassified EP
1. Be Ready
Release Date: 28/03/16
Ahead of the Sub Drifter's Unclassified EP later this month we have secured two digital tracks from the man himself that will be available for FREE. ‘Seismic Wave’ which will be part of our INSTiFREE series to guide exposure towards this debut EP and the second will be hosted by our good friends over at FatKidOnFire who will be announcing the track ‘Turning Point’ in the next week or two.
The Norwegian Producer/DJ/Turntablist approached music at a young age, messing around with an old AKAI Sampler constructing straight forward Hip-Hop & Trip Hop beats. Later, developing his taste in music the producer experienced the sounds of Drum & Bass and Breakbeat, beginning to experiment with these genres in his productions. Only a few years after did he find himself listening to slower tempo music which lead him to Dubstep and he has been producing it consistently for the last few years.
With only Free Downloads under his belt on various blogs and websites such as FKOF (Fatkidonfire), Prolific and Keep Deep, to name but a few, this debut EP from Kenneth Ankjell (Sub Drifter) really pushes the boundaries of his music career so far and stands to be the helping hand up into the big leagues of the 140bpm community.
The ‘Unclassifed EP’ is some seriously smooth tear-out material from the Norwegian beat- smith. Showing us exactly how far he's progressed in his sound sculpting and midrange synthesis capabilities since we first came across him over a year ago. This progression is the main reason why we signed ‘Sub Drifter’ immediately, ever growing his experience and knowledge in music production. Hard hitting snares and punchy kicks lay down a steady beat forming the foundation for these unrelenting, high octane productions. Sub Drifter succeeds in melding together the different sections of the tracks to form this well arranged slice of bass artillery 140bpm music.
