Guestlist | Playlist: Genic

Drum and Bass | Monday 23rd August 2021 | Arren

Following their massive album on Dispatch Recordings, Genic takes over our playlist with some of their favourite tunes to keep their souls eating well.

Genic are a duo who’ve enjoyed a rapid ascent in drum & bass. Just last month they hit another notable milestone in their careers by releasing their debut album, 'Rough Nights'. Landing on Dispatch Recordings, it’s 9 cuts of sick drum & bass.

The lush bass tones of 'Grow' opens the album following its inclusion on its sampler, meanwhile the more robotic chimes of 'Think' continues the journey. Long-time Dispatch roster members Philth and Wreckless present themselves alongside Genic for 'Radiation' up next, as 'The Cycle' keeps the LP broodingly ominous. The breaks of 'Bring It' and title track 'Rough Nights' with its softer underbelly sit midway on the track list, whilst 'Oreo', 'Sore Throat' and 'Lulling Over' draws the curtains whilst exposing three more explosively subterranean selections.

As dust settles on their new album, Genic have stepped up to take over our playlist. They’re selections are a banging selection of turns that are on heavy rotation in the Genic lab. Speaking on their selections Genic said: "As much as we love Drum & Bass it’s not something we can listen to all day everyday to keep us inspired. Here’s some of our top picks that have a permanent spot on our daily playlists to drive us to make the music we love and keep our soul eating good!"

'Mr. Sun' - Geentea Peng

"Pure vibes! This gets constantly rinsed during the winter. On top of the vibe, the music video is sick."

'Ghetto Walkin' - Miles Davis, Robert Glasper, Bilal

"What a combo of artists together who are super influential to us. Legends in the music industry."

'No Gangster' - Kojey Radical & Shabaka Hutchings

"Seriously love this tune. Flows so nicely from start to finish and never fails to make Jo get up and have a boogie."

'Poe Mans Dreams (His Vice)' - Kendrick Lamar

"The rhodes and lofi drums in this are impeccable. Definitely our top pick from Kendricks early work. A great reminder to enjoy life no matter what it throws at you."

'Strings of Light' - Yussef Kamaal

"The chord progression and voicing is something that you often find in the darker side of drum ‘n’ bass, which just creates this amazing mysterious introspective atmosphere that is super addictive."
