Image: 1582491 Rowl delivers The Crescent’s fourth release with two original works packaged alongside a stunning remix from ASC. True to form, 004 is another beautifully varied EP exploring the depth of dub techno with influence from the UK’s signature garage and dubstep sounds packaged across a plethora of BPMs.

Already with a string of releases under his belt on imprints such as ICUAudio, M.U.D and Smoking Sessions, Rowl has stepped up once again to deliver an EP that has both headphone and dance floor appeal, one for the chin-strokers and DJs alike.

The EP opens with the beautiful ‘Egipto’ - its careful shuffle mixed with Rowl’s signature sculpted dub chords set the tone for the rest of the release and showcases his talent at combining influences, bringing a truly unique vibe to the 130bpm bass movement.

On the flip, “Someone” is a far more sombre affair, stuttered syncopated drums coupled with deep chords and a lush vocal complement a beautiful sub line, creating a tune rich in both emotion and narrative.

ASC’s interpretation brings his trademark experimental ‘Auxiliary’ flavour to the release. Perceivably an ode to the label’s first excursion and drum and bass roots, the remix explores the ambient groove of 170BPM and does so seemingly effortlessly. It’s a true display of disregard for genre norms and an interpretation that translates the original vibe into a subtler piece for autonomic aficionados.

Early support from: Rowl, Versa, M.U.D, DjRum, Synkro, Troy Gunner, eleven8, HVL, Space Cadets, ASC, Sam KDC and more…
