Debut Release - Frankee - Firethorn / Pandorum
What better way to launch a fresh faced label than with a fresh faced artist? Frankee’s first collaborative release came last year, a track produced alongside Basher and released on Ram Records. ‘Nevada’ was a standout on Basher’s ‘Transmission’ album, and now Frankee is ready to unleash his exciting solo debut.
‘Firethorn’ leads the way with a haunting intro that gradually builds and grows, demanding your attention as it progresses. As the twinkling melodies and echoed percussive elements fade away the tension is broken with a huge bassline and rolling breakbeats that pummel you from head to toe. This is undoubtedly a debut worthy of the very best, a debut that will have heads turning and bodies dancing whenever it’s dropped.
Flip over and ‘Pandorum’ takes you to an altogether deeper and darker place. A staple of label boss Andy C’s DJ sets for some time now, this track is packed with visceral energy that threatens to rip you apart with its incredible bass. With a nod to the sci-fi era of D&B, this track is as much about rinsing the dance floor as it is about creating an atmosphere.
