For our third release we're very proud to announce our biggest signing to date in the form of one of the West Country's best exports (other than cheese and cider) Mystic State, alongside frequent collaborator and friend, Elias.

The Shanty EP is a stripped back journey though the deep end of D&B, rendolent in lush soundscaping and literally dripping in vibes.

Shanty, the title track, is a thing of beauty. Reminiscent of producers like Four Tet or Gold Panda, it pushes the boundaries of the genre with a deep melancholy.

The remix is Shanty turned up to 11. It has all the depth and meaning of the original, but this time it's built for the dancefloor. Already receiving support from none other than Skeptical, it's a thinking DJs weapon.

Sunday Ones is just that, it's a relaxed halfstepper made for those tender little moments. Patient and deep in equal measure, it's the true definition of a healing sound.

Raindance is Sunday Ones without the calm temprament. Another half step track, Raindance is a brooding, aggressive track that evolves throughout, getting weightier each time.

As always, enjoy.
