PREVIEW: Exit Records presents Mosaic - Volume Two
It’s finally arrived. After 2 and a half years of waiting, the follow-up to the seminal various artists LP Mosaic – Volume One, a compilation that defined a whole new sound in the spectrum of d&b, is almost upon us.
Earlier this week, Exit Records released the audio previews for the whole forthcoming double CD, a monumental 28 tracks in total, and it’s already sounding like it could rival its predecessor with ease.
Most notable is the recent influence of footwork on the scene, with Stray’s brilliant LA Zoom and Fracture’s Sick Wid It representing the sound, while there is also the mightily welcome return of Instra:mental with one of their classic numbers that featured on theirs and dBridge’s FabricLive CD, a mix that introduced the world to Autonomic.
Other highlights include the unfaltering Synkro’s The Way and an entrancing track from relative unknown CMX, featuring dBridge himself.
Mosaic – Volume Two is out August 5th. More news as it comes.
