If you’re unfamiliar with deep drum & bass, let me introduce you to Phace (Florian Harres & Nicolas Ruoff) and Misanthrop (Michael Bräuninger). This German trio has collectively released tunes on the hottest labels in the scene including Virus, Subtitles, Renegade Hardware, Vision, Cyanide and Shadow Law. They get heavy rotation with other drum & bass heavyweights (Calyx, DNAudio Crew, Mayhem, Amon Tobin, Noisia, Pendulum and TeeBee) and have been featured on over 25 compilations.
In August of 2008, they decided to take their music to the next level and created their own label, Neosignal. With releases on Neosignal, they’re upping the standards for drum & bass. They’ve already released some of the sickest tracks this genre has to offer, all deep, dark and fresh with hard rolling bass lines and sharp, hard hitting beats. The upcoming third release from Neosignal will feature the a-side, “Mammoth,” which is a Phace and Misanthrop collaboration, and “Sore Point,” by Phace and Noisia. Both are sick! Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a hold of the entire tracks so I posted a tune off Neosignal’s second release.
Phace have upcoming shows throughout Germany, Australia and New Zealand. Dates and venues are posted on the Phace Blog. To hear more audio clips, visit Neosignal.
