The SMG Store has re-opened after our summer break with a range of new products available to pre-order:
'Negative Space' is the debut LP from Seattle, USA resident Andre Delgado, known to most as Homemade Weapons. A producer with a long history in Drum and Bass, his career hit a powerful stride around 2012 when a stripped back, militant, half speed version of the genre began emerging. Andre was in the leading charge of producers perfecting this new minimal approach. Utilising classic jungle break edits as rapid-fire emphasis tools on top of mood-soaked, half-time, kick drum driven rhythms, the Homemade Weapons style quickly became recognised as one of the most unique and effective approaches to emerge from this experimentation.
Homemade Weapons released his first solo single - 'Kintaro' in 2013 following on from the 'After Dark' EP (with Gremlinz and Collinjah), both for Samurai Music. 2015 and 2016 have been busy years for Homemade Weapons with 2 more EP's for Samurai Music - 'Clarion Call' & 'Sleep Terror' (with Red Army) and the inception of his very own label - Weaponry.
'Negative Space' is the result of a refinement, an individual artist perfecting his craft. Eschewing the 'filler' approach often taken by dance music artists approaching a full length LP, 'Negative Space' is 12 tracks of what Homemade Weapons does best - essential dance-floor constructs for those tuned in to this new strain of Drum and Bass.
Samurai Music will release 'Negative Space' on 02 December 2016 on 3xLP and digital.
