Genic land on Dispatch with debut LP ‘Rough Nights’
Having already debuted on the Dispatch Recordings imprint, duo Genic are set to release their biggest project on the label yet. The likes of Xtrah, DJ Hype (with Genic having previously released on the seminal Playaz through their collaboration), Doc Scott, Noisia, René LaVice and Ant TC1 (Dispatch’s label head) have been spinning Genic’s records throughout their quick ascent. Their debut ‘Rough Nights’ album is sure to gain the same support and notoriety.
Playing at mainstay clubs such as Le Bikini, alongside some of the most influential names in bass music, they’ve also become a favourite amongst Drum & Bass listeners and, as a result, news around their forthcoming album has whet fan’s appetites. Their forthcoming album features an array of influences, from Drum & Bass, Techno, Classic and UK Hip Hop to Reggae, with their tenacity obvious from the LP’s beginning to end. Marked by a forthcoming sampler, which includes digital exclusive ‘Disposal’, as well as album track ‘Grow’, ‘Rough Nights’ is proving to be one of their most expansive musical exploits to date.
The lush bass tones of ‘Grow’ opens the album following its inclusion on its sampler, meanwhile the more robotic chimes of ‘Think’ continues the journey. Long-time Dispatch roster members Philth and Wreckless present themselves alongside Genic for ‘Radiation’ up next, as ‘The Cycle’ keeps the LP broodingly ominous. The breaks of ‘Bring it’ and title track ‘Rough Nights’ with its softer underbelly sit midway on the tracklist, whilst ‘Oreo’, ‘Sore Throat’ and ‘Lulling Over’ draws the curtains whilst exposing three more explosively subterranean selections.
It’s the next album to be dropped on Dispatch Recordings and it highlights their ability to give artists creative freedom as well as the platform they deserve. Genic are the next producers to receive the label’s seal-of-approval and the quality of their ‘Rough Nights’ album signposts exactly why this is.
Today we premiere ‘Grow’ which is absolutely glorious and my personal favourite from the ‘Rough Nights’ LP. Check it out below! The album dropped on Beatport, Spotify and Bandcamp on 9th July, it will be available everywhere else on 23rd July. Make sure you grab a copy today from the purchase link beneath the Soundcloud player.
Keep your eyes open for more to come on the DT website from Genic really soon!!
