Silicone Soul

1
Since first appearing on Scotland’s seminal Soma label in 1998, DJ-production duo Craig Morrison and Graeme Reedie, aka Silicone Soul, have occupied a special place in the over-crowded field of electronic dance music through the depth and quality of their recordings, plus an innate understanding of music‘s grand heritage and its constant development. Having released four critically acclaimed albums, holding residencies at some of Europe’s most celebrated clubs, scooping numerous DJ Mag award nominations and even refusing to appear on Top Of The Pops after storming the UK charts with ‘Right On’. Silicone Soul lead the way celebrating ten years of their Darkroom Dubs label while winning dance floors across the world.

Silicone Soul welcome the return of old friend Justin Robertson as he brings his much-loved Deadstock 33s project back to Darkroom Dubs. Last spotted on the label only a matter of weeks ago with ‘Infinite Interchange’ on the ‘Darkroom Dubs Presents Summer Love’ collection, here he builds on the momentum with two more singular missions deep into the timeless analogue abyss. What’s more, they come covered with a print of one of Justin’s very own hand-drawn pieces.

‘Dr. Spectro On The Frontier’ marks the start of this new Deadstock trip. Celebrating the lesser spotted DC super-villain who could control people’s emotions with a brazen line or two of sinewy acid; what starts off dark and gnarly gradually unfolds into a much more emotional narrative. Watch out for the harmonic riff that rekindles feels of raving fields and a salvo of chords towards the climax that genuinely will control your emotions.

‘The Music Is Madness (To Those Who Cannot Hear It)’, meanwhile, is more than just a poetic title. Already a summer anthem at A Love From Outer Space, it's a roomy, cosmic affair that’s laced with layers of trippy textures and chugs at a cool 120. It’s one of Justin’s classic signature smouldering sessions; what ostensibly seems forlorn and introspective is actually coded with deep hope and positivity. You’d be mad not to hear it.

You’d be mad not to stay tuned too… For the first time in Darkroom Dubs history, this release and all this year’s vinyl dispatches will be released digitally as part of an end of year compilation, ‘Tales From Underground Vol. 1’ and will also feature an exclusive Silicone Soul remix of Rigopolar & Cannibal Ink’s 'Thousand Years Before'. And to round the year off? The long-awaited new single from Silicone Soul themselves.

This one goes out to all you soggy DJs out there. The selectors and entertainers whose slot is not in sync with mother nature’s winning hand. You look out over a sea of anoraks and subdued faces and wonder if the sun will ever shine again. You look at your beer and wish it was a warm cup of tea. You look down at your coat and realise you’ll never pack your winter wardrobe away for the summer…

These instances are hard, if not impossible, to imagine as this year’s unlikely heatwave continues to dazzle and frazzle us. But we all know that those rainy day moments do exist. We’ve all played them in the past. We’ve all got many more in the future. And now Darkroom Dubs have the perfect soundtrack for them: Skinnerbox – ‘Music For Sad & Rainy Open Airs’.

Two tracks tailored for the greyest of outdoor shows. Moody, pensive and vitally atmospheric; both ‘Cold Neck’ and ‘Wet Shoes’ counter and complement any damp DJ set consummately. The former is a lavish, eight-minute saga that ripples with analog weight and shines with sudden cosmic blasts. The sinewy latter extends the trip closer to nine minutes with a wriggling weave of acid and bass before smacking us hard with vibrant solar sensation in the epic breakdown. No matter how treacherous the conditions you play this in are, the sun will always rise.

Cold neck, wet shoes, warm heart: The weather might be an unpredictable beast, but these tracks most certainly guarantee temperate reactions. And let’s face it; this is Skinnerbox and Darkroom Dubs… These guarantee joy regardless of what weather mother nature throws at us. Enjoy!
