    Optiv & BTK - Dirty Tricks LP [ Virus Recordings - VRS009LP ]

    Over the years, drum & bass has seen literally thousands of record labels come and go. But amid the seemingly infinite imprints that have provided an outlet for the music, very few can claim to have had anywhere near the influence of the mighty Virus Recordings.

    Ed Rush & Optical, alongside fellow 'tech step' luminaries Trace, RymeTyme and later Bad Company and Cause 4 Concern, lay down the Virus template on timeless tracks such as 'Gasmask', 'Watermelon' and 'Medicine', as well as LPs 'Wormhole' and 'Sleepwalk', and within just a couple of years had a seismic influence on the sound of Drum & Bass.

    Now, 14 years after the first page in the Virus story was turned, and with its influence running deeper than ever, this year see's the return of C4C's incredible talent, Optiv alongside BTK, one of dnb's finest producers, bringing 13 of the best deep, funk-fuelled, future-tech drum and bass tunes of the year.

    Optiv has had a truly huge impact on drum and bass over the past 15 years as part of Cause4Concern and also under his current solo guise. He is known widely in the scene as one of the most talented and respected producers around and this LP proves his credentials once again in emphatic style. His partner in crime this time out is BTK, currently top of his game and helping to lead drum and bass back to its funk-filled, dirty, raw creative roots, bringing back the breaks and basses that talk to you on a primal level.

    'Dirty Tricks' is pure Virus. Tempering eerie, unsettling soundscapes and disgustingly twisted bass with an insufferable sense of groove and warmth to create an album that fans of the label will be well at home with, and that will leave newcomers astounded by its engineering finesse and endless depth.
