One of the most beautiful vocal D&B tracks of the year, Arrested was created through the collaboration, of Tim Shaw (AKA Exile) with songwriter Johnny Lattimer and vocalist Jamie Minoprio, up in Durham (UK). Its rare to see a record crafted so meticulously in Drum & Bass, live instrumentation, original vocals and electronic beatmongering blended so well - Exiles ruthless command & skill with technology is undoubtedly apparent in this piece. Arrested is a mature, quality song, jazz, funk, pop and D&B all together.
Beautiful vocals, a la Jameroquai, excellently recorded, live Jazz Rhodes Piano and Slap Bass, fused in a D&B underground club context, building up with a solid, heavy groove that really makes this track stand out as pure exquisite quality. John B comes in for a more laid back Lounge Remix, and Tim, under his Deep house ExitBoy pseudonym rocks out with a kinky disco-house remix. Check out Summertime Man for another slice of advanced melodic D&B.
Tangent is again setting the standard for the evolution and development of Drum & Bass. Exile has just completed his Masters Degree in Electro-Acoustics & Composition at Durham University, and has been working on lots of other non-D&B projects, some involving Quad surround sound and acoustic modelling. He is also in the process of developing his own computer software for a truly mobile music creation and performance system to take out on the road. Watch out for other releases on Beta, Renegade Hardware and Andy Cs Frequency Label.
