Section returns to Counterpoint with ‘Contagion/Design’


Counterpoint kicks off their 2021 release schedule with another addition to their acclaimed singles series, which was a regular feature on the Beatport Top 100 Drum & Bass releases throughout last year. For their last couple of releases, they’ve made a point of bringing back to the catalogue some of the most talented people they’ve worked with.

They are staying true to their word as Section returns to the family with his 2 tracker ‘Contagion/Design’. This is the 24th output on Counterpoint‘s main label series and they have a load more great music lined up for 2021!

James Barclay hails from South East England and has been involved with the Drum & Bass scene for over 20 years. Since 2013 he has been making music under the moniker Section. Besides releasing music on name-worthy labels such as Dread Recordings, Skeleton Recordings and Serial Killaz, he runs his own label – Locked Up Music, which has gained support from all corners of the globe. We have more exciting news coming soon about Locked Up so keep your eyes peeled!

This single is the result of a very intricate work between both artist and label. This can be perfectly heard in the deep bass, driving beats and energetic sounds which reflect Section’s interpretation of the Counterpoint sound. 

Today we premiere ‘Contagion’. The deep bass and ringing siren sound in the intro submerge listeners into unprecedented worlds. Unleashing the drop, the whole load of driving bass and drums is revealed and the listener has no choice but to indulge in the sound in full ecstasy.

This state of surrendering to the sound and being grabbed by the drums, bass and fine-sounding melodies lasts until the break and doesn’t let go of you…in a positive way!

The second drop allows the climax of the whole track to spread through the whole spectrum of music frequencies in its full abundance. Then the outro puts you back into the small, little place in this universe where you are enjoying right now this work of art.

Check out ‘Contagion’ below. The single drops via Counterpoint on 11th January, make sure you grab it here
