The stream of manufacturing popping out of Russia has been ramping up each in frequency and high quality during the last three years, with instantaneous monsters like Tobax, Gydra and Synergy following the cost led by Teddy Killerz and Enei. Now with the Russian scene ramping a lot sooner than the remainder of the world (save New Zealand) post-second-wave-COVID, new acts are literally being born within the pandemic. Enter: the already one way or the other very numerous and complex sound that’s Saint Robbers.
The St. Petersburg-based duo referred to as Saint Robbers launched their first twin single in August final 12 months on native label Time of Night. Cinematic, a bit gamer-y and with chugging dancefloor beats, “Saint Metropolis” and “Ghetto Voice” confirmed early promise. After a spot on one other St. Petersburg label, Ozriderz’s compilation album in December, Saint Robbers caught the attention of Magnetude and Task Horizon’s label, Evolution Chamber. Because the multinational, collective label is at all times seeking to push boundaries, it’s simple to see why Saint Robbers’ newest tracks, due out Friday, April 9, are an excellent match.
One other two-sided single, “High quality Prepare” and “Joyful Day” see Saint Robbers ratcheting up their sound design and stylistic range. “High quality Prepare” is a lightweight but punchy chugger of a dancefloor observe that type of introduces the visage of Saint Robbers by way of the synths and samples, which all connote classic crime, espionage and, in fact, practice capers. The Boondock Saints don’t have anything on these guys if “High quality Prepare” is something to go by.
Utterly switching gears, “Joyful Day,” our premiere as we speak, is emotive, stuffed with ambient sound design and really targeted on the melodics of its synths and samples. As such a brand new act in D&B, heads won’t count on such a robust deal with melody however with clear sound design and a well-developed beat construction to again it up, there’s no motive Saint Robbers can’t pull some raver heartstrings with this observe. If all goes to plan within the UK and EU this summer time, “Joyful Day” would be the dawn festie observe of the season.
For sure, Saint Robbers are ones to observe in drum & bass. In the event that they’re simply getting began with tracks like “High quality Prepare” and “Joyful Day,” the scene can solely count on nice issues from right here.
