Nic Brown Intricate and inventive though his percussion undoubtedly is, it's Erkiu's mastery of atmosphere that makes this fantastic EP of half-time drum & bass stand out from the crowd. On "Confession Of A Fellow Citizen" for example, the drums are the eye of a hurricane of synth turbulence that threatens to tear the track completely apart, and the remaining three numbers are scarcely less tempestuous. 20+ years into its existence, it's reassuring to know there are still artists working to push drum & bass forwards. Rejoice. Favorite track: Confession Of A Fellow Citizen.

With three labels covering all musical sounds SMG are focusing on releasing, what we felt was missing was an imprint exclusively for new talent. Shiro is Japanese for 'white' and the label will release artists on vinyl for the first time in limited runs of 200 white labels.

Our first release comes from Polish artist Erkiu who has already released music on Cylon and CX (alongside Maurus). The 'YRA' EP marks his first full solo release and of course, first ever vinyl release. 4 tracks of techno informed progressive drum and bass, the YRA EP firmly establishes Erkiu as a name to watch. DJ support from Doc Scott, Loxy, Clarity, Presha, Gremlinz, Ruffhouse, Overlook and more.
