We are proud to present to you our next d’n’b-themed vinyl release, which comes with two absolutely fantastic deep-bassed and crisp-beated rollers. In the case of this record, we can speak of a small Polish invasion, as both tracks have been written and produced by two Polish supertalents – Mortem, who has been making big waves in the d’n’b industry for some time already, and Harland – an established Warsaw-based event promoter and DJ, and a now-upcoming producer, teaming up with Mortem on the flipside. Starting off with Mortem’s “Proximity”, you’ll surely appreciate his trademark to-the-point drumwork and clear basslines, adorned with intriguing vocal inserts and growling synths. “The Same”, with its quick-paced hi-hats, riveting synthetic melody, and spacious bassline, is surely more dancefloor-oriented, but still fits the deeper side of d’n’b perfectly, making this record as a whole a very welcome addition to the Absys family.
Karol Ziober also known as Mortem is a polish drum and bass producer. After having his first release in 2010 on IM:LTD he started to built his reputation among the biggest names in the game. His tunes are now getting played across the globe by names like Alix Perez, Dbridge, SpectraSoul, Kasra, Lenzman, Dj Hype to name a few... His last release "The Touch" (which in addition was remixed by Sabre) was a big step forward for Mortem, which opened the doors for the biggest labels around. His another recent release which was out on Critical: Modulations made him one of the freshest talent to watch. Talking about Critical - Mortems track called "Uprising" was featured in labels boss Kasra in his FabricLive #62 mix CD. By that fact many more labels are now interested in his music including the mighty Metalheadzthat will release his track as a part of their EP project.
When in 2005 he went to a party where LTJ Bukem and MC Conrad played he did not even suspect that the next day he would buy turntables and immediately begin spinning the decks. In his own unique way. He appeared on the Polish scene in 2007, when he won the Warsaw United contest as the most popular DJ. Then he started promoting Drum & Bass music. Loud series of parties, which hosted D’n’B stars, is just one of his numerous initiatives. Today you can listen to Harland in a few clubs in Poland, where he plays Drum & Bass, but also Chill Out and his own, unique music which is not similar to any well-known records. In a word – Harland plays and sets his own paths with the audacity to imagine that helps to push the boundaries of possibility.
