“Flex once again shows us why they have been a constant leader of the worldwide drum and bass community. This time with Altered States, an amazing compilation of American made talent. Everything from jungle to liquid rollers, steppers and even a bit of tech and neuro, this LP aims to please while showcasing the best underground artists emerging from the American scene. 10/10”
L Double’s musical influence in the US DnB/Jungle scene is profound and with the deep pool of talent the label is blessed with have crafted the LP with an exclusively all American track list featuring the US’s hardest working and talented DnB producers such as Pish Posh , The Burner Brothers , Space Journey , Liminal & Bengal ,Knoxz , NoizeKomplaint , Mixed Media & iIl Omen, HammerZz & Glitch.
L Double said: “You really have to listen to it, to believe how talented this mob really are. Take Space Journey as an example, it is quintessential Neuro funk. Some may say the genre has not got soul but we tried to inject some into the project alongside the ‘trickery and technicality’ of the tracks. That’s what Flex is about showcasing musical talent from around the world to the world. And this album is just the start!”
