DJ Romantech of long-time Newclear friends Soul Science delivers a mix which looks back at a over a decade’s worth of work mostly from the Auckland and New Zealand Drum & Bass scene. It is mostly a lush affair, but accentuated by several more intense numbers.
Auckland boy bLazem delivers a full-spectrum drum & bass mix for the third installment of Atomix – a full-on, no rest for the wicked journey.
The latest EP out onÂ Newclear MusicÂ sees the first release byÂ Soul ScienceÂ as title artists on this label, after numerous appearances in remix capacity.
Soul ScienceÂ kick off the proceedings with their lush, feel-good take on the original dub-wise DNB number.Â Auckland’sÂ SentientÂ makes his first appearance for Newclear, and delivers a dark and heavy version, ready to obliterate anything in its path.Â Juan Tellez, an up’n’coming talent in techno circles (also new to Newclear!) drops a deep, minimal, thumping reinterpretation.Â Old friendÂ NikoloziÂ returns with a synth-heavy tribal house remix…Â and as usual,Â nsuÂ rounds off the release with a reggae-dubstep cut, flavoured with hints of old-skool rave.

The first in a series of retrospective releases is a duo of remixes of the first digital single “Neutron Star”. First up is Romantech‘s spacey liquid drum’n’bass take on the original. This is followed up on the “flip side” by an excellent polished-up techy/progressive (with a hint of tribal) version by Ralph’e’.
While the remixes were available previously under the late e-lusive banner, they are now available in high quality 320kbps MP3 format as a free download, with embedded artwork.
