Bay 6 set to drop ‘Back to Bay 6, Vol.4’


Bay 6 Recordings present the fourth edition of their compilation series ‘Back to Bay 6, Vol.4’. Much like the previous records, the label aims to introduce fresh talent alongside their existing roster. Artists such as Artsea, Beeson, Natus, and vocalist Aleya Mae contribute tracks alongside long-standing Bay 6 artists like Colossus and Fearbace, as well as recent signees Option and AUDBL. The result is a rich take on Drum & Bass, where artists are given the freedom to build upon the foundations of the genre.

Artsea’s ‘Summer’s End’ opens the record. Serenity is the atmosphere here, as the track leads with a gentle piano riff. Modulated pads and driving percussion play out in the background, recalling the rise and fall of waves crashing against the rocks.

Colossus and Aleya Mae contribute ‘Flight Patterns’. Technical drum programming, spherical synth patterns and deep bass lines create a stirring base from which Aleya Mae delivers a soaring vocal full of extended harmonies. Texturally, the track is detailed, a dense combination of sounds designed to evoke the deepest feelings.

Elsewhere, AUDBL‘s ‘Night’s Embrace’ features undulating motifs and finely-layered melody work lower in the mix; Beeson‘s ‘Cindy Stop It is a minimal symphony defined by a gripping intro, and ‘Find My Way’ sees Fearbace and Natus deliver a poignant take on Drum & Bass.

Option‘s ‘Prying Eyes’ closes out the record. Perhaps the most club-ready track on the compilation, its skittering drums take hold of the brain like a liquid symbiote, while nimble melodies and cavernous bass add the decoration.

Today we premiere Beeson’s contribution ‘Cindy Stop It’ which you can check out below. ‘Back to Bay 6, Vol. 4’ will arrive exclusively to Beatport and Spotify on 23rd September, landing on all digital platforms two weeks later, on 7th October. Make sure you grab a copy from here!
