Rregula - The Barramundi Experiment Album Sampler

Recording info

Hailing from Perth, Australia, this talented and prolific producer is no stranger to the music scene. Following his first taste of an Akai sampler to drop film samples on the intros of songs in his metal band, The Dirty Whittler, Rregula eventually found himself drawn into the world of drum and bass and formed one half of Bad Robot in 2003, a monster collaboration with future Technique and Viper superstar, Phetsta.
With a number of releases on Subsonik Sound, Black Sun Empire, and Drumsound & Bassline Smith's popular Technique Recordings as Bad Robot, followed by solo projects on Vampire Records, DSCI4, Citrus Recordings, Icarus Audio, Climate Recordings, and too many others to name, Rregula has been scaling new heights with his output in the past year. Having just released an album project in 2011 on Trust In
Music entitled 'Echoes From The Future' with Dementia and collaborations from the likes of Smooth, Trei and Optiv, one might think of calling it a year.. Rregula is not one of those people.
Now set to unleash his highly anticipated debut LP on Climate Recordings, Rregula presents: 'The
Barramundi Experiment'. An album xtraordinaire, with over 30 tunes of deep and dirty rolling drum and bass, halftime and drumstep, this initial sampler gives us a taste of what to expect with the intricate, flowing 'Let It Go', complimented by the rowdy, stomping beats of 'Arrival'.

'Let It Go' kicks of proceedings with an expansive intro, featuring crisp refreshing vocals and huge synths to produce a wide and detailed soundscape. At the track builds, a mean, old school Reese bass comes to the fore and the track gallops to life, with hard hitting drums and synths adding movement and urgency to an already huge track. By combining a chilled intro with an insane bassline, 'Let It Go' will
take any dancefloor on a rollercoaster of emotions.

Not to be overshadowed by the A side, 'Arrival' begins with a deceptively calm, atmospheric
introduction, but transforms into a Drumstep beast. Not quite Dubstep, not quite Drum and Bass, the main focus of 'Arrival' is a dominating, restless bass, underpinned by carefully honed kicks and lush reverbed snares. Combining a bassline as filthy as any dubstep track with the pulsing drive of a Drum and Bass tempo, Arrival represents the best of both worlds, and has a groove that impossible not to nod to.
