Debut Transmission: Total Science – Man Down


Whenever word goes around that Total Science have a new record in the works, there’s no doubt they’ll deliver. And when that same news also says it’ll be on the mighty Metalheadz label – well, we couldn’t ask for anything more.

The now-Bristol-based duo have been a driving force in the drum & bass scene for pretty much as long as it’s existed, and celebrate 20 years of their own label C.I.A. in 2016. It seems this may have got the producers in a nostalgic mood; their new Notes of Blue EP, as the title suggests, takes influence formative years of d’n’b, in particular the renowned Metalheadz events at London’s Blue Note.

Total Science were never going to just rehash the old however, they’ve kept the vibe but brought everything right up to date. Our Debut Transmission ‘Man Down’ for example, sees razor sharp breaks slice through hefty subs, whilst twisted stabs and echoed vocals fills the air with clouded memories of nights long past.

Stream ‘Man Down’ below and pick up the full EP from March 25th via the Headz store.
