YARR002: Being You EP – Cedex & Higher Undeground

“A quiet night on Space Pirate Bay. The airlocks open and a thrilling yet soothing repetitive sound rings throughout the corridors of the station. A duo of purebred Space Pirates dock their vessel and bring forth the spoils of their latest quest.”

Their names; Cedex & Higher Underground. Both hailing from the Class-M rock BE32, better know by its inhabitants as Belgium. Both have a long standing history promoting fast breakbeat music in this outskirt of the Copernican System. The duo’s stepped up their game recently while their first productions have seen the light of day. Their collaboration with James Marvel titled ‘Red Alert’ appears on Space Pirate Recordings’ first album ‘Space Pirate Trainer OST’ and even more recently they showed a deeper and rolling side with their release of ‘The Alarm’ on Lifestyle Music’s Belgian Connection LP.

‘Being You’ is a deep roller drawing influence from many different sides of the drum&bass spectrum. Without adhering to any set standard, it takes the listener on a journey through melodic patterns, lush filtered chords, snappy and rolling percussion guided by a deep and catching bassline.  

Appearing as their first solo release on SPR, with ‘Being You’  they further confirm their entry into the scene as a production duo to be on the lookout for.

YARR003 Bun Bun – James Marvel, Abis & MC Mota

After the success of ‘Dominator’, James Marvel and MC Mota team up again with ABIS (ex-June Miller) to once more deliver a banger full of unexpected twists, with a lyric so infectious, crowds instantly start singing along. A powerful force indeed, this ready-for-summer, put-on-your-sunglasses bouncer called ‘Bun Bun’


But what in Earth’s name is a Bun Bun? Is it a drumsound? Is it a vibe? A calling?  A (self-fulfilling) prophecy? A double sandwich made from a rare specimen of mahi mahi maybe? Indeed it might be a Romanian greeting. Some say that to the Japanese, Bun Bun simply means ‘shake shake’. Others soothe themselves by just repeating the words like meaningless yet powerful mantra.

Perhaps it is after all ‘an original creation, a philosophy’, as the lyrics so profoundly state.
