GIANT22 debuts on T3K Recordings with ‘Bones’ EP
No stranger to the roots and techniques of Drum & Bass, GIANT22 is a veteran artist with deep knowledge and versatile skills. He started to play his first gigs as a DJ around 1996 and got more and more attention the years after when he showed more of his talent with multifaceted sets consisting not only of floor rattling tunes but also of well-selected musical gems showing a smart and diverse set of influences brought in from all sorts of hip hop, reggae and electronica.
He started producing his own music as well: not only had he gained a lot of knowledge by diving deep into the vast universe of synthesizing (and building an enormous eurorack), but also, he did this in a pretty short space of time because of a very high commitment and an incredible work ethos. The results are remarkable and so his tech-infused Jungle Drum & Bass which will surface in the near future on various labels including his own imprint, EPO22 Music Tales, which launched this year and promises fresh ground for breakbeat driven, tech-funking sonics, infused with cinematic and emotional elements, all with a significant dancefloor-friendly attitude.
The ‘Bones’ EP comes with a stunning solo track entitled ‘Seeker’, an extraordinary slice of Halfstep featuring the fantastic vocal talent of Professor Funk plus a little help by Mister Labelowner himself ‘Bones’, and last but not least there is this crazy weird collab ‘Spike’ with Xeomi and Kaiza designed to twist your head and shoot you straight to the stars.
In short, this debut release is vibey as fuck, full of quality and every lover of Underground Drum & Bass needs it in their life.
Today we premiere ‘Spike’ which features Xeomi and Kaiza, check it out below. The EP drops on Wednesday 20th July, make sure you grab a copy from here!
