D&B label Grid Recordings
launches Allsorts imprint with Electrosoul System
After a 2006 that saw Drum & Bass label Grid Recordings
expand its musical horizons with the launch of the Liquid Allsorts
series, it has kicked off a new imprint Allsorts with Russian producer Electrosoul System (pictured left).
launch comes after releases last year from artists such as DJ Marky & Bungle, A Sides, Heist
and Electrosoul System.
As a result of
the critical and commercial success of the Liquid Allsorts releases,
Grid recordings decided to give the series its own label and has
announced the launch of Allsorts -- a brand new imprint that will focus
on deeper beats, soulful sounds and "all sorts of styles."
Kicking off the label is Electrosoul System, who is considered one of
Russia's finest exports and a rising star of the international D&B
scene. The current issue of Knowledge
Magazine reportedly describes
Electrosoul -- whose birth name is Andrey Burtaev -- as "being
instrumental in giving Russia a voice in drum & bass worldwide."
Electrosoul's first release with Allsorts, issued worldwide during
March/April 2007, is a 12" vinyl with two tracks, Falling and Sing.
Allsorts describes Falling as having "rolling beats, cleverly edited
vocals, lush pads and warm rounded bass." Sing, which begins with deep
atmospherics, grows into "an uplifting piano led roller."
