A. Nether – True Believer
AA. Nether – True Believer [Marcus Intalex Remix]

The Deep Soul Music mission of releasing high quality drum & bass continues with this the 17th vinyl release. Australian Nether has already graced DSM twice with the laid back grooves of ‘Lust’, which featured on the ‘Intelligent Systems Volume One EP’, and ‘Skeletons’, which was included in the exclusive DSM x Lacoste project. With Marcus Intalex on remix duties for the AA side, this is one very special slice of wax.

True Believer is a continuation of Nether’s aforementioned laid back sound. He is an under-rated master of creating an emotional mood and atmosphere in his tracks that he himself describes as ‘Drum & Space’ and this cut is no different. The whistling, phantasmagorical pads and drones create an ambience found in few other dance music productions, and they evoke feelings of standing alone in a vast expanse of open space with nothing but yourself, your thoughts and memories for company.

The AA side sees the Soul:R boss and all round round drum & bass legend flip things 180 degrees for his remix. The abstract, almost introspective feel of the original is removed in favour of straight up feel good summer time dancefloor vibes. Big bouncy bass stabs and a crisp rolling drum break aim the tune firmly at the ravers and its been a firm favourite of many an a-lister over the past few months looking to amp up the vibes and energy levels of their sets.

Aside from the superb music, this 12” is an important milestone for DSM. It lays down a marker and is a signal of intent that Deep Soul Music is no longer a fledgling label fighting to gain recognition and acceptance within drum & bass. Rather, it has grown to be one of d&b’s leading lights, one of the most respected labels within the global scene, and a point of reference and inspiration for the multitude of other dj’s, producers and labels currently operating in the genre. With their place at drum & bass’s top table now secure, and with a close working relationship developed with a group of exceptionally talented artists such as Anile, Sam KDC, Triad and June Miller, the only way for DSM is up.
