Promenade drops his debut album on his BNCexpress imprint

Share

Promenade’s journey into drum’n’bass started in 2002 and for almost the next 5 years his activity was focused on DJing. During 2007, alongside DJ DP, Promenade has started a new project: G Recordings. Besides headlining alongside some of the best DJs in the world, DP & Promenade’s releases on G Recordings and Chronic have been repeatedly played by artists such as Roni Size, Aphrodite, Dillinja and Bryan Gee, whilst also making frequent appearances on radio stations such as BBC 1 Xtra and Kiss Fm.

In 2011 came the creation of a new project, BNCexpress, a label with which Promenade aims to bring together upcoming producers to create a new, smoother, more funk orientated sound. The participation of so many people from so many different musical backgrounds gives the project a fresh sound and a diverse outlook towards making music

Italian Promenade boils down icebergs and makes waves with the water on his debut solo album ‘Ballads’, a liquid funk dream built on earthquake sub bass. It’s released on his BNCexpress imprint on 24th June.

He has a reputation as a sample-hunting crate digger, but this album is all about pads and chord work, layer upon layer of soaring orchestral sounds piled on top of tight-wound drums. This can all be heard in our premiere ‘The Way Back Home’ which is a delightful piece of music!
