Drone 011, with tracks Sweet Venus and Rex from Richard Fearless and the first in Drone’s vinyl only series has been gaining amazing support right across the board. Sweet Venus recorded in a single take sees Fearless step into soulful house roll but goes back to a familiar sonic palette for the Acid drenched ‘Rex’ Both tracks were mixed by Chris Blakey at Drone’s Metal Box. Nearly all shops have sold out now but Drone held onto a few copies which we will be selling on our soon to be launched ‘Bleep’ site.
“Rival has, since it’s inception, been about exploring the limitations of a single, one take session. Taking the principles of a live set and applying them with gear that would ordinarily be left in the studio adds an uncertainty and urgency to the moment that would otherwise not be there.” D’Marc Cantu
‘Sustain’, on the B side of Drone 010 and D’Marc Cantu’s second release on Drone, is a ferocious track with monotonous drum lines that slowly takes you into the night.
With early support from Helena Hauff, Ben UFO, Psyk to Antal, ‘Omega Red’ is D’Marc Cantu’s second release on Drone, an introspective and emotive piece of electro.
With it’s deep pads, ‘Omega Red’ provides the soundtrack to a trek through the snowy wastes, never letting up and calling through the night. Dreaming of a world beyond our own on a journey without end, waking to find fragments of that world still holding on.
