Arriving with his debut solo release for SUNANDBASS Recordings is FD, who presents the “Serious” EP. Having previously released on the likes of Metalheadz and Spearhead, this is an artist who has the ability to blend a wealth of underground influences together into a refined, expressive sound.
Alongside playing across Europe at both renowned clubs and festivals and collaborating with fellow luminaries of the D&B scene, FD is set for a creatively charged 2017, and “Serious” kicks off proceedings with intent.
Its title track whipped up a fan frenzy after appearing in Lenzman’s “Dope Tape” mix – with its deep-rooted musicality and brooding vocal intensity, this one is a fluid foray into the groove-laden style of FD. Next up comes a remix from none other than liquid legend Calibre, who has put his stamp on the SUNANDBASS-inspired “Ambra.” This edit is, as expected, sublime in quality; filled with emotive touches via its smooth piano tones and warm strings – evoking memories of hazy summer nights in Sardinia.
‘Serious’ is brought to a powerful close with “The Edges,” another piece of original material from FD. This tune is a punchy, dark-edged roller with soul, and has already been heavily supported by Marcus Intalex.
FD says of this exciting project, “I’m really looking forward to getting it out there. I like the variety in style in my own tracks, and I think they have a nice blend between being listenable, yet dance-floor. I’m also super chuffed to have a Calibre remix on the EP – it’s an absolute honour, and a landmark occasion to have him rework one of my tracks.”
