Aural Imbalance | Solaris / First Ascent (12") [OKBR050]
Aural Imbalance | Solaris / First Ascent
Label: OKBRON – OKBR050
Format: Vinyl, 12", Limited Edition
Released| 23 Oct 2023
Simon Huxtable's Aural Imbalance project remains as productive as ever some 25 years on from the first releases, and now newer labels like OKBRON are stepping up to carry his work after taking so much inspiration from his approach to atmospheric drum & bass. Despite Okbron's capacity for reissues it seems these two joints are new transmissions and they certainly have a sparkling finish which speaks to Huxtable's experience and precision in the studio, but there's also a gritty bite to the breaks and some rich depth to the synth work which ensures there's a generous dose of personality in these luxurious excursions into the deeper end of d&b.
